"McDonald’s adds Donut Sticks to breakfast menu"

Quote

McDonald’s is making another major play to raise the profile of its breakfast and coffee menus with the introduction of McCafé Donut Sticks. 

The Chicago-based chain said it is doubling down on breakfast with the Feb. 20 unveiling of the sugary, churro-style treats. The nationwide debut of Donut Sticks comes after extensive testing last year to perfect everything from the shape of the donut to the amount of cinnamon sugar needed for each stick.

The result: crispy sticks prepared in “existing kitchen fryers” and served “hot, crispy and golden brown” with no microwaves, the company said.

They would probably use the fryers used for the apple and cherry pies (do they still have them?)

When I worked there - as a kid, so many, many years ago - we had 3 fryers.  A double fryer for french fries, one for fish and one for the pies.

I thought the only pies currently available were baked apple pies. Not that I know for sure, because for us, McD's is exclusively road food, what we eat in the car when we haven't been able to pack something to come with us. My husband thinks their burgers are easier to eat with one hand than other fast food.

Mickey D's pies are all baked now. My standard breakfast en route to an early morning meeting I have once a month, an hour and 15 minutes away, is an apple pie, hash browns and a big orange juice (I have my coffee with me in the big ol' road mug). Wouldn't do to have my stomach growling at the meeting with my biggest client.

It's that time of year again:

Shamrock Shake fans are catching a lucky break.

More than a month before St. Patrick's Day, McDonald's popular minty shake is back at participating locations nationwide, the Oak Brook, Ill.-based fast-food chain announced.

The drink is slated to stick around for a week after the traditional Irish holiday through March 24, while supplies last.ted return of Shamrock Shakes"

"Leaked documents reveal that McDonald's is about to slash items from its late-night menu"

 

Quote

McDonald's is slashing its late-night menu.
The fast-food giant is rolling out a new late-night menu on April 30 at midnight, according to leaked internal documents shared with Business Insider. The updated menu will not have any new items, but will significantly cut down on what is available from midnight until 5 a.m.

McDonald's is cutting Signature Crafted Recipes, Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwiches, Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwiches, Buttermilk Crispy Tenders, Filet-O-Fish, and premium salads from its late-night menu. Bagel sandwiches and Snack Wraps, which are currently served regionally, will also be cut from late-night menus.

This probably won't impact most customers. Funny how they're not adding anything new...just stripping down the menu for late night crew.

Been a while since I've made a wee-hours McD's run, but I would be willing to bet the Filet-o-Fish gets put back. Just sounds like the stuff of late-night snacking to me.

 

For denizens of the Southeast, I was always much more prone to hit Krystal (aka Greasetyl) for my late-night, can't, sleep, had too much to drink runs. Or Waffle House, aka the Awful Waffle. Which is a misnomer, because the waffle is actually decent.

"Leaked documents show that McDonald's is adding international hits to its American menu, including a Spanish Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger and a Dutch Stroopwafel McFlurry"

Quote

...In early June, the fast-food giant is adding four "Worldwide Favorites" to the menu, according to internal documents shared with Business Insider.

New menu items include the Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger from Spain, the Stroopwafel McFlurry from the Netherlands, the Tomato Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich from Canada, and Cheesy Bacon Fries from Australia.

The article offers a little bit more description of the new items. I am looking forward to the rollout.

it seems McD can't make up its mind

 

it supposedly cut back on a variety of deLux burgers that weren't selling well ,

 

and making the franchises keep expensive times on hand

I think their scaling back their menus wasn't an all-day thing but rather for late night customers. I imagine it would make it easier for the over-night crews if they didn't have to make complicated or "fussy" menu items.
