Another day, another tantalising bit of news about a delicious Christmas menu hitting one of our fave places for a quick (and cheap) foodie fix. And this time? Well, this time it’s McDonald’s, whose festive offering will be released in restaurants nationwide this Wednesday – the 17th November 2021.
The burger chain are adding eleven new and returning items to their seasonal menu, including burgers, McFlurries and of course, limited edition hot drinks.
Prices start from 99p and go up to £6.39. It’s beginning to taste a lot like Christmas…
Here are the eight items landing on the McDonald’s festive menu for 2021…
Brand new for 2021 is the Festive Crispy Chicken which is a chicken breast fillet with cranberry sauce, sage and onion mayo, bacon, red onion, lettuce, and cheddar cheese. It costs £4.89 on its own or £6.39 as part of a meal and will temporarily replace the Chicken Legend.
The Festive Stack includes two beef patties with a red onion relish, white cheese sauce, bacon, crispy onions, red onion, lettuce and cheddar cheese. It costs £4.89 on its own or £6.39 as part of a meal.
McDonald’s are bringing back their popular Cheese Melt Dippers which are made from Camembert and come with a tangy tomato dip. They’re available as a pack of four for £1.89 or as a Sharebox for £5.09.
New for 2020 was the Celebrations McFlurry, and excellent news as it will be returning this week. It features soft dairy ice cream which is swirled with Maltesers clusters, Galaxy chocolate drops, caramel pieces, Mars chewy pieces, Twix biscuits, and finally is topped with a milk chocolate sauce. Wowsers. It’s £1.49 for a regular size or 99p for the mini.
Returning for 2021 is McDonald’s Festive Pie which is similar in style to their iconic Apple Pie but includes half mincemeat and half custard. It costs £1.19.
On the festive drinks menu this year is the Choco Fudge Latte which is made up of a large shot of espresso, steamed milk and chocolate fudge flavour syrup. It’s topped off with cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. It costs £1.79 for a regular size and £2.09 for a large.
And for non-caffeine fiends there’s the Deluxe Hot Chocolate which is described as a silky treat made with a rich, chocolate syrup, topped with a swirl of cream and a chocolatey dusting. It costs £1.39.
There’s also some newbies on the McCafe baked goods range, including a Chocolate Brownie which is made from a new and improved recipe. It’s made with plain chocolate and has milk chocolate chunks.
The classic Sugar Donut is back on the menu and is exactly as it sounds: a soft ring donut, dusted in sugar and is totally delicious.
Also new to the menu is the Mixed Berry Muffin which is filled with a sweet raspberry jam and sprinkled with a crunchy granola topping.
Chocolate fans rejoice because McDonald’s are adding a Triple Chocolate Cookie to their menu. It’s packed with chunks of milk, dark and white chocolate.
