You can feel the change already. Soon, beach towels will be stowed away, the town pool closed for the season, the smell of sunscreen and cherry ice pops start to fade. The sound of the ice cream truck will soon disappear altogether. It's inevitable, summer will come to an end.
And as we all roll up our beach towels, McDonald's rolls out their new fall menu to signal the end of blistering hot temps. The promise of warm, sweet jolts of caffeine on a cooling late-summer morning might ease the transition into the new fall season!
The new Fall McCafe menu will feature a line of espresso-based drinks, including the classic Vanilla Cappuccino, Americano, frothy, caramel-drizzled Macchiato, and creamy Vanilla Cappuccino. The new Vanilla Cappuccino, a combination of espresso and vanilla syrup topped with milk foam, sounds like the antidote to any woes about summer's end.
Although the McCafe menu has many flavored cappuccinos, they still have some classics, such as the Americano, which will be kept simple with hot water and espresso, similar to brewed coffee. The Caramel Macchiato features espresso, caramel syrup, steamed milk and topped with caramel syrup.
And for those still a little stuck in the summer heat, the new menu will also feature Iced Mocha and Iced Caramel Macchiato topped with caramel syrup. The McCafe cups also went through a makeover, with an upgraded design to celebrate the new fall lattes.
But, the best part is that McDonald's is bringing back a fall favorite, the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Freshly brewed espresso, spiced to perfection with subtle hints of pumpkin and cinnamon flavors, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is the quintessential fall beverage.
Over the years, McDonald's has released delicious seasonal beverages and treats, such as the Pralines & Cream McFlurry and Pumpkin Pie. Who knows what other Fall creations will grace the menu this year?
Watch out for these fall classics, which are set to hit McDonald's locations by mid- to late-September. McCafe drinks are available all year round, with small cups for $2, so if you just can't wait you can grab some now!
