They are not doing all that well her in WA state either, once the big hype wore off when they were new. The things are really pretty nasty LOL...

I don't know if this is true all over the whole of the United States, but around here (Indiana) the two sizes of the parfaits were only available for the first few months that the parfaits actually existed. They took the larger size off the menu shortly after they started selling them, and now the only size available in any McDonalds I have ever been to in Indiana only has the snack sized ones available. (I have been in McDonalds all over the state...)

I used to get them at McDo's quite a bit before I stopped eating there... but here in WA I never saw any available except the small snack size.

We're calling it a snack size, which it is, but the larger one was, I think, intended to be a meal, not a snack. I don't know about the rest of you all, but I don't consider 150 cal to be a meal, and I don't eat at f-f places very often, but if I was there at a meal time, I'd rather get 2 parfaits than a burger or a "healthy" salad for my meal.
