Cool down with two new flavours from McCafé

Boxes are still everywhere. Jacek has been diligently unpacking. Me? I take a lot of breaks. I take mostly breaks and maybe unpack a bowl or a plate here and there. Moving is so overwhelming because I’m an idiot when it comes to the home. How do you decide which cupboards are right for what things? Where does one even find a cutlery tray with at least five slots?

So, while Jacek is doing most of the work, I have spent most of my time pretending to keep the dogs company and out of the way on our deck. It was a gorgeous, sunny weekend in Toronto. I had my e-cig in one hand and a McCafé Vanilla Chai Tea Iced Frappé in the other ignoring my responsibilities and deadlines. Amazingly I am still married. Not sure I’ll be able to get away with this for another week. But that’s the point of indulgence – you do it while you can.

McDonald’s is extending its McCafé brand this summer with the launch of new Iced Frappés – in two sweet and creamy flavours: The McCafé Coffee Iced Frappé and the McCafé Vanilla Chai Tea Iced Frappé.

The Coffee Iced Frappé is for you coffee lovers.  It’s the perfect balance of coffee flavour, made sweet and creamy and blended with ice.  I had a sip of Jacek’s and loved the fact that it actually tasted like coffee.  I find a lot of iced coffee drinks lose that real coffee taste so they appear to have this one right. 

If you’re like me, though, and can’t handle a full caffeine, the McCafé Vanilla Chai Tea Iced Frappé is your jam: a refreshing combination of vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg, frothy and cool at the same time.

Both are in stores now but I’ll be hosting a kick-off party tonight. Watch for my post tomorrow for a recap of the event.
