McDonald’s Announces the White Chocolate Mocha

I am a sucker for hot chocolate drinks.  Coffee isn’t my thing but if it has salted caramel chocolate, mint chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate … chances are I’ll try it!

And now there’s a new one to try.  McDonald’s is introducing the McCafe White Chocolate Mocha for the first time this winter – mid November through March 2014, while supplies last.   It’s made with freshly brewed 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified espresso, white chocolate flavor and steamed milk topped with whip cream.  But as always, it can be made to order with whole or non-fat milk and with or without whipped cream.

If White Chocolate Mocha isn’t your thing, the Peppermint Mocha is back this winter too along with the other McCafe drinks.

And because I know nutrition and labels are always important, don’t forget they make it easy for you.

McDonald’s Give a Hand

ARMHC Logo

Recently we shared an announcement about our new partnership with Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities (ARMHC) – we’re really excited to be involved with this organization & happy we can share important information with you.

McDonald’s Give A Hand

Have you seen the signs at all the local McDonald stores?  I have.  It’s part of a tradition and it’s one that I’m happy to donate to.  I figure if I’m treating my kids to a McDonald’s cookie or myself to another hot chocolate, then I can definitely donate and “give a hand”.

“Give A Hand” is a 10-year McDonald’s tradition where customers may donate directly to ARMHC while visiting any participating restaurant in the greater Atlanta area. Throughout the month of November, customers may purchase a paper ‘Hand’ for $1, $3 or $5 to help keep families together and support ARMHC.  Customers can display their hand in the restaurant to show their support for the Charity.

Something You May Not Know:

I’ve overlooked this part so maybe you have too – new this year, customers receive a special “Thank You” message from McDonald’s for their donation. After purchasing a hand, donors may upload and use the free McDonald’s Augmented Reality app for a one-of-a-kind message from Ronald McDonald. Customers also have the opportunity to win a family vacation and a $500 Snapfish gift certificate if they participate in our Family Photo Contest after purchasing a Hand.

Why Give a Hand?

Need a reminder why the Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charity is important and why “giving a hand” is too … meet Caleb Johnston.  Caleb is fighting each day to walk and talk again after he suffered an aneurysm in June.  It’s his family and many others like him that need ARMHC.

McDonald’s McCafe Pumpkin Spice Latte:

For most of us, Fall means pumpkin patches, apple picking, corn mazes, lots of Fall Festivals, Halloween Events, and Haunted Houses.  But for a lot of  people it also means one more thing – Pumpkin Spice Lattes!  I have friends that eagerly anticipate the first day they can order the tasty treat.  Just in case you’ve missed it, you can now order the McDonald’s Pumpkin Spice Latte to satisfy that craving!

McDonalds Pumpkin Spice Latte

The new McCafe Pumpkin Spice Latte is a blend of freshly brewed 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified espresso and creamy steamed milk combined with warm spices and flavors of pumpkin pie.  You can choose to order with whole or non-fat milk and save a few calories too!

If the Pumpkin Spice Latte isn’t your thing be sure to check out the rest of the McCafe line of Lattes – including Caramel (my personal FAVORITE), French Vanilla, Sugar-Free French Vanilla, and Hazelnut.

Prices around town start at just $2.39 (will vary by restaurant), so it’s a sweet treat to yourself that you don’t have to feel guilty about spending on.  But hurry the McCafe Pumpkin Spice Latte is only available through November 2013!!

McDonald’s Mighty Wings:

We recently polled our Facebook Fans to find out the best places in Cumming & Forsyth County to order some wings.  Well now, there’s a new place to try – you know, when that craving hits and you need to run through a quick drive thru.  McDonald’s is back with their Mighty Wings.

McDonald Mighty Wings

The Mighty Wings were originally introduced in Atlanta last summer, but it was just a test.  Atlanta was actually the ONLY market in the US that tested them.  Pausing there to think, that’s pretty cool!  Now it’s on the menu nationwide!  So if you tried them last summer & liked them, then you’ll be happy about this.  If you missed out on trying them … now you have the chance!

Go for sauce or no sauce – you have Creamy Ranch, Spicy Buffalo or Tangy BarBeQue to choose from.  And get just a few as a snack or choose more and make it a meal – the wings come in 3, 5 or 10  piece.

And because I know nutrition and labels are always important, don’t forget they make it easy for you.

McDonald’s New Quarter Pounder Toppings 

How would you like your Quarter Pounder?

Something just got a little jazzed up at McDonald’s!  McDonald’s is adding variety to its Quarter Pounder by now offering three brand new flavors.

mcdonalds new quarter pounders

Which one fits your personality?

Maybe it’s the “Bacon & Cheese” with the new thick cut Applewood smoked bacon?  The “Deluxe” with Mayo, Mustard and fresh produce.  Or it could be the “Habanero Ranch” with Applewood bacon, white cheddar cheese and Habanero Ranch  Sauce?  A variety of options for every personality!

My son has just realized that he likes his McDonald’s happy meal as a hamburger with cheese (I’ve tried convincing him that’s called a cheeseburger but he doesn’t agree – ha!!), no onion, no pickle.  So he’s not necessarily the target market here – these new Quarter Pounder toppings are perfect for people looking for variety & customized toppings!!

So are you?  Are you ready to jazz up your Quarter Pounder?

New Store Opening:

FYI – If you’d like to be pampered before or after trying one of the new QP Toppers, I have some place you can go in Atlanta – a new store is opening at 2071 N Druid Hills Rd NE, Atlanta.  And they’re opening in style – FREE massages, face painting, food giveaways, even autograph signings and pictures with the Atlanta Silverbacks and their mascot!  And of course Ronald McDonald will be in appearance for a ribbon cutting ceremony!

All the fun will take place on Saturday, July 27th at 1pm!

Giveaway

As part of the McDonald’s Greater Atlanta Moms campaign, we’ve got our hands on some FREE Quarter Pounder vouchers (redeemable in Metro Atlanta)!  We’ll give two lucky winners, 5 vouchers each – that way you can try all the varieties & even go back for seconds!  And the entry process is an easy one for Cumming Local readers!

McDonald’s Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie:
A Summertime Treat & GIVEAWAY

McDonalds Great Atlanta Moms Blogger

I just found a new sweet treat I’m enjoying from the McDonald’s McCafe menu – maybe you’ve tried it too?  The Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie!  It’s tasty and makes for a great cool treat on a hot summer day!  The smoothie was first added to the menu in May, but now it’s a permanent menu item and will be available year-round.  Which is nice since our hot Georgia weather can easily hang around til October or show up again as early as February or March!

The new Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie is made with blueberries, raspberries, and a splash of pomegranate juice.  I know calories is a concern to many of you – it ranges from 220 to 340 calories depending on size.  And if you want to control that even more, it’s nice to know you can customize your order by making it with or without low-fat yogurt.  I went with low-fat yogurt on mine, will have to try it the other way one day too just to compare!

McDonalds Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

And while I’m on ingredients, calories, & nutrition don’t forget you can always plan ahead with your food choices (for the McCafe beverages and all food/beverage menu items) through McDonald’s Mobile App, their Meal Builder online, trayliners in the restaurant or even by phone.  Visit www.mcdonalds.com to learn more.

So if you’re headed to the office, the pool, the lake, a ball game, just driving around town – or around the country on vacation, consider this cool treat – a little Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie to the rescue on a hot summer day!

Peachtree Road Race and the Blueberry  Pomegranate Smoothie:

Are you running this year’s Peachtree Road Race?  Or are you headed downtown to cheer someone on?  This is cool – the McDonald’s store on Peachtree will have a Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie SAMPLING truck outside!  So all participants & spectators for the July 4th Peachtree Road Race are invited to stop by the sampling truck for a FREE Sample to give it a try!!
