McDonald’s USA introduces two new beverages to its McCafe beverage line – Peppermint Mocha and Peppermint Hot Chocolate. The drinks mark a launch for McCafe, as the brand’s first specialty seasonal beverages.
New McCafe Peppermint Mocha and Peppermint Hot Chocolate are in restaurants nationwide just in time for the holidays, available now through January 2, 2012, or until supplies last.
McCafe Peppermint Mocha is a blend of smooth espresso, dark chocolate syrup with a hint of peppermint, and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle.
Customers can also get into the holiday spirit with a McCafe Peppermint Hot Chocolate. Both beverages are customizable, and available with a choice of whole or nonfat milk, and with or without the whipped cream topping.
“Beverages now represent more than 20 percent of sales for McDonald’s USA, so it’s becoming increasingly important to add new and unique beverage options to the McDonald’s menu,” said Marta Fearon, McCafe marketing director, McDonald’s USA.
“With the introduction of the decadent Peppermint Mocha and Peppermint Hot Chocolate, we are pleased to provide customers with a flavorful taste experience that is perfect for the holiday season.”
To celebrate the launch of McCafe Peppermint Mocha and Peppermint Hot Chocolate, McDonald’s is popping up in select locations across the country to surprise and delight consumers with samples of its new holiday beverages.
Consumers in select major cities will be rewarded with a McCafe Coffee Break during the busy holiday season, by sampling McDonald’s newest McCafe beverages.
