McDonald's Testing Frozen Juice Blends in Select Markets

McDonald's Eyes Drink Market Further With Frozen Blends

First came the fast food breakfast wars. Now, it seems, the name of the game is refreshments. Every fast food joint wants a slice of the beverage pie, and number one chain McDonald's is leading the way.

Next month, the corporation will finally debut smoothies in Strawberry Banana and Wild Berry, the result of a year's worth of testing. What's more, the quick-service behemoth is now experimenting with frozen juice blends, slushies comparable to those famously served at rival Sonic. Test markets for flavors like strawberry lemonade currently include Michigan and Austin.

McDonald's has found surprising success with the introduction of premium roast coffee, sweet tea, and McCafé lattes and cappuccinos. It'll be interesting to see if the brand has good fortune with cold Summer refreshments. Are you into the concept of a McDonald's slushie?

I'd pass; I don't go to McDonald's often and I'd probably just have a slushee at home instead.

I love slurpees in the summer! However I don't know if I'd get one at McD's.

LOVE slushies! I would definitely try these, I live a few blocks from a McD's and several miles from a Sonic (they have the best drinks, but like I said...far away).

I would possibly be into a McD's slushie. We live in a very rural area and the closest "take out" for 15 miles is McD's. However, I have a dairy allergy and McD's shows no interest in providing dairy free alternatives. I know this isn't their main market so I won't complain too much. But those frappes do look good on these hot summer days.
