McDonald’s China Launches a Sundae Doused in Chili Sauce

We all know that cuisines and tastes vary from place to place, and culture to culture.

That said, it can still be hard to imagine sometimes that anyone would enjoy something like spicy chili sauce over their ice cream.

And this is from someone who really enjoys the salty and sweet phenomenon.


It’s called a youpo lazi sundae, and is basically McDonald’s soft serve ice cream doused in a sweet and spicy chili sauce…a lot of it.

To launch the new product, McDonald’s offered it for free through their app for awhile. Now that it’s caught on and people are lovin’ it (see what I did there?) you’ll have to pay full price.

And of course, the availability of this strange little treat is dependent on McDonald’s soft serve machines being in good working order, so even the people who do want to slurp it down will only be able to around 40% of the time.


Honestly, the longer I look at this, the less disgusting it looks? The more I kind of want to try it?

Sweet spice kind of makes everything better, don’t you think? Add that to ice cream, and maybe it’s a winner winner chicken dinner after all.

I don’t know, but I doubt this will be gracing menus in the States any time soon.


That said, you can probably replicate it in your own kitchen without too much trouble – it won’t be the authentic chili sauce, but at least you know whether or not you have ice cream in the freezer.

So there’s that.
