While I still haven’t forgiven McDonald’s for getting rid of their Sausage Egg and Cheese Bagel Sandwiches, their new McCafé Bakery offerings might lure me back in for breakfast.
Beginning Wednesday, October 28th, you will be able to enjoy McDonald’s new McCafé Bakery lineup, with your choice of an Apple Fritter, Blueberry Muffin or Cinnamon Roll. It’s the first addition of baked goods to the company’s core menu in 8 years, joining their cookies and pies.
- Apple Fritter: A classic fritter made with cinnamon and apples, this hand-held treat is fried to a golden brown and drizzled with a sweet glaze icing. Are we saying you should dip yours into your morning coffee? No way… Ok, fine, we definitely are.
- Blueberry Muffin: Our new recipe is baked with real blueberries and topped with a streusel crumb topping, making for a crave worthy soft & fluffy muffin. Feeling “blue” all day never tasted so good.
- Cinnamon Roll: Loaded with cinnamon layered between buttery, flaky pastry dough that is drizzled with a delicious cream cheese icing. Served warm, the aroma alone sparks a craving for the next decadent bite…talk about a reason to roll out of bed.
“McDonald’s has been famous for our savory breakfast menu for almost fifty years,” said Linda VanGosen, Vice President, Brand and Menu Strategy, McDonald’s USA. “We’re continuing our breakfast innovation by adding tasty new sweet options with our new McCafé Bakery lineup. We know our customers deserve a break now more than ever, and are excited to give them another reason to visit their favorite breakfast destination by offering delicious flavors they crave, any time of the day.”
Not gonna lie, all three of these sound pretty great, and I’ll definitely be in the drive-thru first thing on the 28th to try all 3 of them for myself, because I’m a piggy like that. And if you’re not an early riser, don’t worry, as these tasty treats will be available all day.
The only thing that could make me happier? If they bring back those insane danishes that they used to sell back in the 80’s. Remember those? They were freaking amazing! 😋
Edit: My fat ass tried all three of McDonald’s new McCafé Bakery items. Their Cinnamon Roll was pretty damn good, a close second to Cinnabon’s. The Blueberry Muffin was pretty decent, but it could have used more blueberries. As for the Apple Fritter (which I was most excited for), it was just dreadful, with barely any apple filling. It just tasted like a sugary danish.
