Honoring the grandma in their lives, LGBTQ+ creators like Chef and Television Personality Ronnie Woo, Actress and Activist Jillian Mercado, and Photographer and Author Maxwell Poth have come together to connect on their most cherished memories with their grandmothers. While reminiscing, they create crafts that celebrate those moments, all while embracing the nostalgic presence of McDonald’s—a place where they could share both stories and French fries with grandma.

And there’s more to savor with the debut of McDonald’s sweet treat: the Grandma McFlurry, a limited-time treat for everyone, made to recreate the feeling of spending quality time with Grandma. Available at participating locations, the delicious Grandma McFlurry features smooth, sweet creamy syrup and chopped crunchy, candy pieces, reminiscent of grandma's favorite treat hidden in her purse, blended in McDonald's creamy vanilla soft serve.
