McCafe French Vanilla and Colombian Ground Coffee

Don’t want McDonald’s employees to combine water and ground coffee for you because the voices in your head tell you that they’re really CIA agents sent to kidnap you but they haven’t been successful because they haven’t put enough sleeping drugs into your coffee?

  1. For some reason I am surprised that there wasn’t as many limited edition or seasonal products this year, I figured there would be a slew of them coming but as Christmas is over I am a little disappointed not as many new products hit the shelves. I feel if you want McDonalds coffee at home you should just buy weak coffee make a pot and then dump a cup or more of water in it so its nice and watered down and then if you want it even more authentic McDonald leave the pot on for a few hours before you have your cup and there you have the best imitation of McDonalds coffee out there. Now I didn’t mean to be snarky there but McDonalds just doesn’t make a good cup of coffee although there very well could be a location out there that makes a good cup but I haven’t had one before.

    1. I know it’s cool to hate on MacDonald’s, but I happen to think their coffee is among the best you can get outside of an actual coffee place.

  2. More Frozen stuff. Yay. I bet that Cereal is from Last December and they didn’t get around to putting it on Store Shelves until now.

    1. you do know what you just said can be applied to almost anything don’t you the reason people buy those coffee things is so they can make it at home and not worry about getting dress and driving to the nearest Mcdonald’s

  3. The joke there was they make watered down coffee , you see what I was going for there right nudge nudge. I wouldn’t tell someone to make a cheesecake and it’ll taste just like cheesecake factory but McDonalds coffee is like a generic coffee flavor so that wouldn’t apply to everything. Some McDonalds might make a great cup but not at the McDonalds a 1 minute drive from me for the person who enjoys a cuppa from McDonalds, I also drank a ton of it when it was free for like 2 weeks so maybe they were watering it down because it was free and they were making so much I don’t know, I also find some Starbucks locations make there coffee super strong and I get jittery from it but other times I don’t.
