Let's take a quick trip around the metro Rockford-area for any broken ice cream machines at McDonald's as of 7:30 am on October 26, 2020.

Being told an ice cream machine at the McDonald's your at is never fun. A few weeks ago my daughter really wanted a McFlurry. When I say "wanted" I mean if I hadn't dropped what I was doing right then and there an epic meltdown was about to tear through my home. Why did I give in? Because sometimes parents are forced to choose their battles. Little did I know what was about to happen would put the risk of an epic meltdown to a maximum level. The ice cream machine at the McDonald's in our little town was not working. We've all had this happen but usually, it's at 2 am. when McDonald's is only accepting cash. Guess what? Those days are gone for now thanks to McBroken.com.

A 24-year-old German software engineer has struck gold. He figured out how to track which ice creams are and are not working at every McDonald's in the United States. This list is updated every 55 minutes. Long story short, he found a way to use McDonald's app to place an order every hour at every McDonald's in the U.S.A.
