The new McCafe Bakery menu is here, but which one is tastiest?

As McDonald’s newest food menu offering, the new McCafe Bakery menu offers three tasty treats to tempt guests. While all three are delicious with a McCafe hot or iced coffee, you might not be able to eat all three bakery items at one sitting. Which one should you try first?

McDonald’s breakfast has always been a popular food menu choice with people. From the iconic Egg McMuffin to the big breakfast filled with hot cakes, sausage and eggs, McDonald’s breakfast has been a great way to start the day.

With the new McCafe Bakery menu, McDonald’s makes a big change that hasn’t happened in years. Available as part of an all-day offering, the McCafe bakery items are a hot cinnamon roll, apple fritter and a blueberry muffin.

Recently, I had the opportunity to try all three of these new McCafe Bakery menu items. With my cup of hot black coffee in hand, it was a tasty treat to say the least. While all three menu items are quite good, one stood out.

Truthfully, these menu items are more like options that you would get at a coffee shop or bakery. From the size to the flavor, it is clear that McDonald’s put some thought into the menu options.

Serving the cinnamon roll hot is a smart choice. The icing adds that sweet, luscious texture that you want from a cinnamon roll. The cinnamon flavors are warm, spicy yet not overpowering. The cinnamon roll is big, too. The box is about the same size as a burger.

The blueberry muffin has a great streusel topping. The slight crunch from the topping adds to the enjoyment. There are big pieces of blueberry in the muffin. Overall, it is quite enjoyable.

Truthfully, the must have new McCafe bakery item is the apple fritter. While the sweetest choice of the three, the apple fritter has a delicious flavor. The apple is complemented with warm spices. The glaze brings out the other flavors.

More importantly, there is a slight crunch that you expect from the outside of the apple fritter. The soft, chewy center is contrasted with that crunch to make the perfect bite.

If you want to try any of these new McCafe menu items, they are available now. Additionally, don’t forget the special offer via the app. With the purchase of a McCafe coffee you can try one free for a limited time.
