Fall is here and the chill’s only barely starting to creep in. However, despite the cold shoulder we seeem to be getting from the season, businesses have begun announcing and releasing seasonal product offerings celebrating the cooler seasons. No official announcements about the Oreo Mint McFlurry have been made, but the fastfood giant has just announced its seasonal McCafé menu. This year, the McDonald’s Cinnamon Cookie Latte is giving you the warmth of the holiday season with every sip.
So, if you’re craving to get your caffeine fix without the bitterness, this just might be up your alley! This brand new brew is combines cinnamon, milk, and freshly brewed espresso. So basically, the McDonald’s Cinnamon Cookie Latte is like having the smoothest, creamiest, and warmest cookie in the world. McDonald’s Chef Mike Lingo, in a press release, said that:
“We were inspired by our customers’ excitement for the holidays when crafting our Cinnamon Cookie Latte, a new and limited-time flavor that evokes the warm, cheerful feelings of the season. Our latest beverage innovation combines the captivating aroma and flavor of cinnamon that evokes the holiday feeling in us all. We’re excited for our customers to get a taste.”
So basically, McDonald’s is giving us Christmas in a cup this year! However, we’ve still got quite a bit of waiting to do. The McDonald’s Cinnamon Cookie Latte will be coming to stores on November 6. And we’re pretty sure that even the grinchiest of people will find themselves anticipating the merriest holiday of the year. And while McCafé‘s newest offering sounds super fancy, it’s surprisingly affordable at only $2 a cup! Plus, you can choose to have it served hot or cold too, whichever tickles your fancy.
Experience Christmas with every sip and nibble of the McDonald’s Cinnamon Cookie Latte and Donut Sticks.
“We’re giving customers more of the goodness they crave and pairing the return of Donut Sticks with a new decadent Chocolate Sauce. We always let our customers be the guide, and a dipping sauce was highly requested when they asked for an accompaniment to go with the popular cinnamon treat.” Lingo added.
McDonald’s has also decided to bring back their famous Donut Sticks to pair with their new latte offering. The McCafé Donut Sticks resemble churros (now that’s what we want McDonald’s to offer next!), but they’re basically just straight doughnuts. Cinnamon sugar coats the McCafé Donut Sticks. And a warm chocolate dip also comes with the donut, which totally gives us strong churro vibes. Moreover, the official release also describes the Donut Stick to have a light and airy texture, since the inside of the donut is soft and doughy.
These may not be really churros, but it seems that McDonald’s was heavily inspired by it. And we’re not complaining. The Donut Sticks will be available by the dozen or half-dozen during this limited time release. Hopefully, McDonald’s releases churros soon! It’s absolutely the perfect companion for the McDonald’s Cinnamon Cookie Latte.
It is also worth noting that the Cinnamon Cookie Latte is McDonald’s first seasonal drink offering in more than five years, so you definitely don’t want to miss out on it! The last seasonal drink McDonald’s offered was the White Chocolate Mocha in 2013. We’re so excited to taste the sweetness and spiciness of the cookie and cinnamon flavors in McDonald’s new latte offering. Aren’t you?
