OAK BROOK, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/13 --  McDonald's  is
introducing two new McCafe offerings -- Blueberry Pomegranate
Smoothie and Dulce de Leche Shake -- inviting customers to experience
the everyday wonder of McCafe this summer. Blueberry Pomegranate
Smoothie is available now and Dulce de Leche Shake is available at
all participating restaurants starting early this summer for a
limited time only. Both McCafe menu introductions are part of
McDonald's ongoing efforts to evolve its menu with relevant,
great-tasting food and beverages choices.  
McCafe Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie
 Freshly prepared for each
customer, McCafe Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie is made with
blueberries, raspberries, a splash of pomegranate juice and other
juices and blended with low-fat yogurt and ice. Its unique flavor
profile combines the tartness of pomegranate juice with the sweetness
of blueberries and raspberries.  
Starting at 220 calories for a small size, the new smoothie offers
choices from some of the USDA's MyPlate recommended food groups, such
as dairy and fruit. Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie is the newest
addition to the McCafe Smoothie line which includes Strawberry Banana
and Mango Pineapple. 
McCafe Dulce de Leche Shake 
 Inspired by the traditional Latin
American dessert, McCafe Dulce de Leche Shake is made with McDonald's
vanilla reduced-fat ice cream, caramel and topped with whipped cream
and a cherry. The new seasonal shake offers customers an exotic take
on the classic caramel taste. 
"Since introducing McCafe four years ago, we have continued to expand
our offerings with new, great-tasting beverages and desserts for any
occasion," said Marta Fearon, Marketing Director, McDonald's USA.
"So, if customers are looking for something fruity and refreshing,
then Blueberry Pomegranate is a great choice. But, if they prefer a
little more indulgence, then Dulce de Leche can also fulfill that
craving." 
The McCafe summer line-up also features returning favorites Cherry
Berry Chiller and Frozen Strawberry Lemonade, available for a limited
time only. These seasonal offerings will join the menu of permanent
blended ice beverages, which also includes McCafe Strawberry Banana
