A craze for coriander

The world's largest fast-food restaurant chain introduced a coriander ice-cream sundae in China in February. Called the Lemon & Coriander Flavoured Sundae, it has a base of vanilla ice-cream, a lemon-flavoured topping and dried coriander leaves sprinkled on top. The dessert costs 6.6 Yuan / $1.05.

According to official website of McDonald's China, there are only limited quantities of the coriander sundae so it is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Coriander fans have wasted no time getting their hands on the ice cream and posting their special dessert online.

In January 2021, McDonald's China launched a “Member’s Day Creative Menu”, introducing an "exclusive taste experience" for registered members. Limited-time only products that feature local ingredients are on the menu such as Rice-cake McFlurry or Spicy Wagyu Beef Burger have been popular with China members, McDonald‘s says.

This year, the brand will launch offerings on a quarterly basis. The Lemon & Coriander Flavoured Sundae is for Q1.
