San Diego County McDonald’s® Restaurants Kick Off Summer With New McCafé® Smoothie And Shake


McDonald’s Shake Fans can Also Enjoy the new McCafé Dulce de Leche Shake Available for a Limited Time

SAN DIEGO – May 28, 2013 – McDonald’s restaurants in San Diego County are introducing two new McCafé offerings—Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie, available now, and Dulce de Leche Shake, available at all participating restaurants beginning June 10 for a limited time only. Both McCafé menu introductions are part of McDonald’s ongoing efforts to evolve its menu with relevant, great-tasting food and beverages choices.

McCafé® Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie
Freshly prepared for each customer, McCafé Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie is made with blueberries, raspberries, a splash of pomegranate juice and other juices, and blended with low-fat yogurt and ice. Its unique flavor profile combines the tartness of pomegranate juice with the sweetness of blueberries and raspberries.

Starting at 220 calories for a small size, the new smoothie offers choices from some of the USDA’s MyPlate recommended food groups, such as dairy and fruit. Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie is the newest addition to the McCafé Smoothie line, which includes Strawberry Banana and Mango Pineapple.

McCafé® Dulce de Leche Shake
Inspired by the traditional Latin American dessert, McCafé Dulce de Leche Shake is made with McDonald’s vanilla reduced-fat ice cream, caramel syrup, and topped with whipped cream and a cherry. The new seasonal shake offers customers an exotic take on the classic caramel taste.

“Since introducing McCafé four years ago, we have continued to expand our offerings with new, great-tasting beverages and desserts for any occasion,” said Marta Fearon, marketing director, McDonald’s USA. “Whether our customers are looking for something fruity and sweet or a little more indulgent, the Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie and Dulce de Leche Shake offer them a unique taste experience sure to fulfill their cravings.”

The McCafé summer line-up also features returning favorites Cherry Berry Chiller and Frozen Strawberry Lemonade, available for a limited time only. These seasonal offerings will join the menu of permanent blended ice beverages, which also includes McCafé Mocha Frappé and Caramel Frappé.
