McDonald's requires the machines to undergo a nightly cleaning cycle that can last four hours. During that time, they can't serve ice cream. The replacement machines are meant to fix that problem. They have fewer parts and are easier to maintain.

But that doesn't explain why customers are still complaining about the machines.

We asked McDonald's about the ongoing complaints, and it turns out the machines still haven't been replaced.

While the company has identified replacement machines, as of November, it hadn't yet rolled them out in restaurants, according to a McDonald's representative.

Thousands of customers have been complaining on social media, saying that the machines are almost always broken when the craving.

"In order to better serve our customers the delicious treats they enjoy, we have identified new soft serve equipment options, and are working hard to make these available for restaurants as quickly as possible," the representative said.  

For now, customers will have to continue to take a gamble on whether the machines will be in service when they get an urge for McDonald's soft-serve.

<p>The humble chicken tender - or chicken fingers, in some circles - is making a comeback. </p><p> Chicken tenders are the most glorious incarnation of handheld fried chicken - heftier than nuggets, simpler than wings, ideologically purer than boneless wings. The adoration for chicken tenders is universal, bridging the spans of age and class alike - the great equalizers, so they say, are death, taxes, and tenders. With McDonald's <a href= resurrecting them on their menu and Wendy's introducing theirs, the time for tenders has come.

A handful of major fast-food chains offer tenders, and we decided to put them all to the test to see which con-tender (sorry) reaches the top of the tourney.

This Man Went To Extremes To Win At McDonald's Monopoly .
He wanted to find out if the odds are accurate.One Canadian vlogger decided to put those odds to the test by ordering a staggering 100 large fries at once, much to the dismay of every McDonald's employee working that day. He also ordered a large Diet Coke, just for good measure. Since each large fry and medium or large drink comes with two game stamps, that amounted to 202 chances to win.
