McDonald’s Is Now Bottling Their McCafé Frappe Drinks

Fans of McDonald’s McCafé drinks will be happy to know that they can now forego the drive-thru line and grab a handful of the drinks at a local grocery store.

The McCafé Vanilla, Caramel, and Mocha Frappes have made the move to stores, as McDonald’s is following in the steps of Starbucks with ready to drink coffee bottles.

The drinks are being distributed by the Coca-Cola company, and a press release read, “As longtime partners of McDonald’s, we look forward to working together to expand the reach and availability of McCafé coffees to more people across the country.”

Made with 100 percent Arabica beans, McDonald’s emphasized the fact that they use real milk and sugar for these popular drinks.

For those who read nutrition labels, the caramel and vanilla flavors have 260 calories per bottle, and the mocha has 270 calories.

McDonald’s revamped its McCafe lineup in early 2017, and really made a push toward the coffee line, making the drinks with a very Starbucks-esque feel.

These new bottled drinks fall in line with the idea of dipping into Starbucks’ market, being similarly sized, priced, and flavored.

The drinks do hold their own with flavor, still tasting true to the Frappes you get at the restaurant, so the transition seems smooth so far.
