One of the city's most popular fast food restaurants has confirmed the re-release date of a popular seasonal favourite - as well as confirming the return of its popular Monopoly game.

McDonald's, which boasts numerous eateries in the city and surrounding region, has finally given hungry diners news on when the Creme Egg McFlurry will return.

A popular Easter item, the fast food giant revealed the return of the product in February - but has kept quiet on its launch date.

Until now.

Taking to their Twitter account, the company revealed the ice cream, chocolate and fondant sauce favourite was returning to UK branches - including Huddersfield restaurants - on Wednesday, March 16.

That date will also see the return of McDonald's Monopoly, a sweepstake sales promotion which allows customers to win instant prizes.

Last year, more than 9.3million prizes were claimed across the country.
