Fresh Baked Goodies from McDonalds -- Who Knew? (Review)


In an effort to continually appeal to the tastes of its customers, McDonalds recently announced the addition of five bakery items in its New England and Albany, NY area restaurants. The new bakery offerings include cheese danish, blueberry muffin, multi-grain berry muffin, banana bread and mini vanilla scones. These items are available throughout the dayMcDonalds new bakery offerings are made with high quality ingredients like real dairy butter, whole grain oats and real fruits like blueberries, raspberries and banana puree. All bakery offerings at McDonalds contain no preservatives. The new multi-grain berry muffin contains 280 calories, has zero grams of trans fat per labeled serving and is a good source of fiber.

I recently had the opportunity to try out each of the new bakery items, and boy was I impressed.  With this "heat wave" going on in New England these past few days, the last thing I wanted to be doing was cooking in the kitchen.  So, yesterday, we headed to McDonald's for dinner and for a treat, sampled the 5 new bakery items.  I have to say that my favorite was the banana bread.  It was so moist and tasty.  You could actually taste the banana puree in each bite.  My husband loved the blueberry muffin. He couldn't get over the plump blueberries that were added to this muffin.  Each and every bakery item tasted fresh, and left you wanting more.  Savannah couldn't stop sampling each of these bakery treats, so it was hard to say what her favorite was.  I am loving that you can order these items all day long.  So, now my husband has another option besides McDonald's oatmeal in the AM, when he is running late and can't eat at home.  And, if I want a treat in the evening with my tea, and not have to spend time in the kitchen baking and cleaning, all I have to do is head to the local McDonald's to satisfy my sweet tooth.

If you haven't had a chance to try out these new bakery items available at McDonald's, what are you waiting for?  And, each item is reasonable priced, and most are under $2.00, making for a sweat deal!

  1. I actually went into a local McDonald's yesterday and while I didn't see any of these items, I did see chocolate chip cookies there which I didn't know they had before. I'd love to try the blueberry muffin!
