McDonald’s introduces McCafé Donut Sticks for limited time

Watercooler

McDonald’s is announcing a new menu item.

The company touts the new McCafé Donut Sticks as a sweet treat to go with their premium roast McCafé coffee.

Starting February 20 for a limited time, customers can enjoy Donut Sticks with their McCafé coffee during breakfast hours at participating restaurants nationwide.

Donut Sticks are made fresh throughout the morning in McDonald’s restaurant kitchens and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar for a crunchy outside and soft, doughy inside.

“We are proud of our breakfast offerings, and excited to share new Donut Sticks with our customers. Donut Sticks are the perfect complement to our existing breakfast lineup, and pair deliciously with our fresh brewed premium roast McCafé coffee,” said Linda VanGosen, McDonald’s Vice President of Menu Innovation. “We initially tested them in select Illinois restaurants in early 2018, and then again in October 2018, as it was critical that we perfected them before we brought them to our customers nationwide. We looked at several donut shapes, tested a variety of doughs and even worked to get the amount of cinnamon sugar just right for the recipe. We are thrilled to be making breakfast at McDonald’s even more delicious by introducing Donut Sticks.”

Donut Sticks are available by the half-dozen or by the dozen, and customers can also pair a half-dozen Donut Sticks and a small McCafé brewed coffee for a special price at participating restaurants.
