McDonald's Chocolate Chip Delight Ice Cream Returns After 20 Years

After more than 20 years away, McDonald’s will once again sell Chocolate Chip Delight Ice Cream.

The new flavor was first launched in 1995 and was the most popular one of the brand’s “Extended Variety” menu items of the 1990s, according to USA Today.

While limited to a 12-ounce portion, Chocolate Chip Delight contains 8 grams of fat, 28 calories and 100 calories with 80 percent of calories coming from fat, according to the company. It’s also higher in calories and fat than most other McDonald’s dessert offerings.

Today, McDonald’s has introduced several new diet friendly menu items that limit fat, high cholesterol and sodium.
