McDonald's is offering a new dessert with a Kiwi twist: a Cookie Time McFlurry. But in a new move, they've teamed up with UberEats to offer it exclusively on the food delivery app. 

The new Cookie Time McFlurry combines one of New Zealand's most loved treats, the classic Cookie Time Chocolate Chunk Cookie, with McDonald's warm caramel sauce and creamy soft-serve.

"It's awesome to combine two firsts in launching the Cookie Time McFlurry," says Jo Mitchell, director of marketing at McDonald's New Zealand.

"Cookie Time cookies are a Kiwi icon, and we've collaborated to develop a delicious product we know McFlurry and Cookie Time fans alike will love. This is also the first time we've launched a product exclusively through McDelivery with UberEats."

Andy Bowie, NZ Country Manager for UberEats, says they're sure it's going to be a hit. 

"We see icecream orders spike during the summer months and on hot days, as Kiwis look to beat the heat with a quick and easy delivery option, so we expect this collaboration to be well-received." 

But if you live in a rural area and are feeling excluded, do not fear. The new McFlurry will arrive in McDonald's stores across New Zealand from December 5, 2018 for a limited time.

UberEats is available in Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington, Hamilton, Christchurch and Dunedin. 

There are now 61 McDonald's restaurants on the Uber Eats app across the country.
