Impulsive Buy reader Brad spotted these muffins at a McDonald’s location in Chicago. They are a Quaker Oats product and are available in three varieties — Double Chocolate, Blueberry, and Cranberry Orange. The muffins are being sold for $1.69 each or with a small coffee for $2.29.
According to this MLive.com post, the new muffins were tested in Michigan late last year. The article also revealed they’re baked daily at the restaurant and a berry bran version was also tested.
This isn’t McDonald’s first attempt at muffins. A few years ago, the chain experimented with a line of baked goods that included muffins, scones, and banana bread.
Chicago is a known test area for McDonald’s and the muffins aren’t listed on the McDonald’s website so they appear to be still in the testing phase.
If you’ve tried any of them, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
