McGenius: This Website Shows Every Maine McDonald’s With Working Ice Cream Machines
We all get hit with that craving from time to time.
And although we're still currently mourning the sudden closing of a Portland, Maine, McDonald's location, this scenario still exists no matter where you are.
You're driving, your stomach starts rumbling because it needs to be filled, and as you drive, you see Golden Arches in the distance. Instantly, you can practically taste a burger, chicken nuggies, or, even better, the iconic McDonald's french fries.
McDonald's Ice Cream
But as you start picturing the smell and taste of a Mickey D's burger and fries on your lips, you also get that urge to finish off your McD's meal with a sweet treat -- something like an ice cream.
And when you've finally pictured the meal that will perfectly hit the spot, as you either stroll up to the counter or drive up to the speaker in the drive-thru to place your order, that's when you receive the bad news.
Sorry, our ice cream machine is down.
Suddenly, that craving for the picture-perfect meal turns to slight disappointment. If only you knew ahead of time that the ice cream machine was down, you could've tried a different McDonald's location either in town or nearby along your travels.
And now, thanks to some genius, you can get the inside scoop (pun not fully intended) in advance, all thanks to a website.
First highlighted in an Instagram post on the OnlyInBos page focusing strictly on Massachusetts locations, the website McBroken.com actually uses your specific location to display different locations of McDonald's in your immediate area and the status of their ice cream machine -- working, broken, or inconclusive.
Not all heroes wear capes. Some just create websites about ice cream machines out of the goodness of their hearts (and rumbling in their stomachs.)
