Four new scoop-able, sip-able, portable holiday desserts — billed as “Dreamy Delights” — have just dropped in McDonald’s stores nationwide. The main selling point of these sweet treats: sugar, chocolate, sugar, caffeine, sugar, and tapioca pearls — oh, and did we mention sugar?
Need a quick helping of thick cocoa on the go-go? For PHP39 (US$0.76), there’s McDonald’s Rich Chocolate Pie. Aching for soft-serve ice cream with a chewy twist? The Brown Sugar Sundae with Pearls for PHP49 (US$0.95) should hit the spot. Caffeine with chocolate and a sugary crunch? The Coffee McFlurry with Oreo, at PHP49, will have you feeling fuzzy in no time.
How about sip-able beverages with add-ons, just because? The Milk Tea McFloat with Brown Sugar Pearls at PHP75 (US$1.50) would perhaps suffice.
These holiday pick-me-ups are available starting today until supplies last.
