Fast food chain McDonalds is quite often known for having temperamental ice cream machines, that seem to have a mind of their own!


Whether you fancy a McFlurry, ice cream or even a a cold drink, there’s nothing worse than turning up and finding out the machine is out of action and missing out!

Well, good news, there is a website which can tell you whether the machine is on or not.

Mcbroken tells you when when and where there is a McDonalds fast food restaurant and if you’re in luck to enjoy an ice cold treat.

 It was launched by 24-year-old Rashiq Zahid who is a software engineer in he US. Locations with a working machine get a green dot and those without, a red dot.

It came after Zahid visited a McDonalds and tried to order ice cream on the touch screen kiosk, but could not.

“I was like, there must be something that can be done about this,” Zahid said.
