McCafé’s New Menu Items Will Make Your Holidays Way Sweeter

The chain is celebrating the season with a new Cinnamon Cookie Latte and Donut Sticks … with Chocolate Dipping Sauce.

What better way to celebrate the holidays – or seriously, anything else in life – than with coffee? Except maybe by celebrating it with coffee and doughnuts.

That may be the thinking behind McDonald’s new McCafé seasonal menu items. The chain has announced that, starting on November 6 and for a limited time only, it will warm (and sweeten) up our increasingly chilly mornings with a Cinnamon Cookie Latte, its first new holiday beverage flavor in more than five years, and McCafe Donut Sticks, a returning menu item that was a fan favorite when it appeared for a limited time earlier this year. This time around though, thanks to popular demand, the Donut Sticks will come with Chocolate Sauce for dipping.

The McCafé Cinnamon Cookie Latte, which will be available either hot or iced at any time of day during the holiday season, features freshly brewed 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified espresso, milk and the taste of cinnamon, including a sprinkling of cinnamon on top. The McCafé Donut Sticks will be made fresh on site at McCafé locations each morning, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, and served warm – and with the new chocolate dipping sauce -- by the half-dozen or dozen; they will be available only during breakfast hours.

“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,” McDonald’s Chef Mike Lingo said in a press release announcing the new menu items. “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.”

The new latte, as well as other McCafé beverages, will be served in the chain’s new festive, winter-themed seasonal cups – also available only during the holiday season, so get ‘em while they’re ho-ho...hot!
