Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

If you are looking for the perfect iced coffee that is sure to spice up your summer, look no further. The hack was shared on TikTok and it’s a total gamechanger.

Apparently, you can order Korean iced coffee at McDonald’s. Korean iced coffee is usually made with instant coffee, creamer, and honey. It’s not something offered on the official McDonald’s menu, but there’s a way to make it happen with a brilliant hack.


All you have to do is ask for a vanilla soft serve and a black iced coffee. Take the cup lid, open it up, and dump the ice cream inside.

This may seem counterintuitive to some but we are here to break down the science for you.

As soon as you have taken the time to mix them, you are going to be enjoying a very unique ice cream treat. It will taste just like the style of iced coffee that is served in Korea!

McDonald’s shared the hack on its TikTok and it looks incredibly creamy and delicious!

For those of us who will never have the chance to head to Korea, we will at least have the opportunity to drink like locals.

The end result tastes the same as an affogato, and trust us, it is a great way to cool down on all of these hot summer days.

Check out McDonald’s video below:
