It's beginning to look like the holiday season with the return of festive beverages, Peppermint Mocha and Peppermint Hot Chocolate, at McDonald's.
Now that Halloween is over, these seasonal specialty beverages are available in participating U.S. restaurants nationwide starting today for a limited time.
McDonald's, based in Oak Brook, has also added a splash of holiday cheer to its new McCafé cups. This year's seasonal hot cups are red and feature glistening stars touting "Wonder in Every Sip"-- meant to inspire the joy of the holiday season. The seasonal hot cups are Forest Stewardship Council certified and available beginning Nov. 6 through the holiday season or while supplies last. By 2020, McDonald's is committed to sourcing 100 percent of its coffee around the world from sustainable sources and 100 percent of its fiber-based packaging from certified sustainable or recycled sources.
"These festive McCafé beverages deliver enticing flavors that are holiday favorites," said Elina Veksler, senior director of McCafé menu innovation. "For many, nothing comes before coffee -- even during the holidays, which is why our Peppermint Mocha is made with café-quality espresso made from 100 percent Arabica beans. Our customers are sure to enjoy our delicious Peppermint Mocha and our other seasonal favorite, Peppermint Hot Chocolate."
For a limited time at participating restaurants, McDonald's will be offering any small McCafé specialty beverage, including Peppermint Mocha and Peppermint Hot Chocolate, for $2.
