FAST FOOD NEWS: McDonald’s McCafe Carrot Muffins

McDonald's McCafe Carrot Muffins

Last year we posted something about McDonald’s testing freshly baked muffins by Quaker under their McCafe brand that came in three varieties — blueberry, double chocolate, and cranberry orange. While All-Day Breakfast has been rolled out nationwide, the muffins haven’t.

McCafe muffins are still being offering in select areas and there’s even a new flavor — carrot. Impulsive Buy reader Brad sent us the photo above, which was taken at his local McDonald’s in Chicago. While carrot muffins are new at McDonald’s in the U.S., our Canadian friends have had carrot muffins for years at their McDonald’s locations.

If you’ve tried the carrot muffin with a cup of hot McCafe coffee, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
