McDonald’s Menu Shake-Up: Classic Fan Favorite Makes Triumphant Return.
McDonald’s is making a move that could potentially shake up the dessert game. Don’t tempt me. I’ve been know to drive from one McDonald’s in Cape Coral to another in Estero just to get an elusive menu item. The golden Arches are about to do it to me again by bringing back the Oreo Frappé. Yes, according to The Street, for the first time in eight years, you can relish in a delectable coffee drink that’s essentially a dessert in a cup. It’s like having your cake and drinking it too.
Now, some might be wondering, “Isn’t a Frappé just a fancy word for a shake?” Technically, no. A Frappé is a Starbucks Frappuccino knockoff that has crushed ice, making it somewhat of a distant cousin to the shake family.
However, let’s not get too technical here. Whether it’s a shake or a Frappé, the Oreo Frappé is back and ready to satisfy your sweet tooth. According to the Fast Food Post, the Oreo Frappé will be made by blending McDonald’s mocha coffee Frappé base with crushed ice, Oreo cookie pieces, and cookies-and-cream syrup. It will then be topped with whipped cream and even more Oreo cookie crumbs. Sounds delicious!
But before you rush to your nearest McDonald’s, be aware that not every location will have the Oreo Frappé. It’s a good idea to call ahead and check if your local McDonald’s is participating.
If you’re looking to switch up your dessert routine, the Oreo Frappé may be your new go-to. It’s an alternative to the McFlurry, which is known for its broken machines. In fact, there’s even a website dedicated to tracking which McDonald’s locations have working McFlurry machines. Talk about a first-world problem.
So why not switch things up and try the Oreo Frappé instead? It’s a perfect way to indulge in a sweet treat without worrying about the McFlurry machine. Plus, you’ll get a little caffeine boost to go with it. Just remember that a medium Oreo Frappé has 570 calories, so perhaps it’s best to skip the fries.
