What is McDonald’s Minute Maid Tropical Mango Slushie?
Just in time for the season of consistent daily double-digit UV index levels, McDonald’s has added a new flavor to its cold drink lineup — the Minute Maid Tropical Mango Slushie.
How is it?
It’s 82 degrees in my office, and the frozen beverage is doing a great job at keeping me cool as I suck its high-level UV index-colored goodness from a straw. But, after trying so many different mango-flavored products that have an easily recognizable mango flavor over the years, which make them so great, I have to say I don’t have a crushie on this slushie.
If I went up to random people on the street, asked them to try the Tropical Mango Slushie, and then asked what flavor they think it is, I’m not sure most people would say mango. Some might say peach, and others might say apricot because that’s what I taste. For those who answered with non-mango fruits, I’d tell them that they’re wrong. Then I’ll say they should never accept a slushie sip from a stranger. However, I do notice something that’s more recognizable as mango in the aftertaste. But it’s a fruity flavor that I associate with beverages that have artificial sweeteners, which isn’t optimal for a drink that doesn’t have any.
Anything else you need to know?
If you find yourself at McDonald’s and desire a limited-time slushie flavor, go for the Minute Maid Strawberry Watermelon Slushie. It’s better tasting, and it tastes like what its name says.
McDonald’s Minute Maid Tropical Mango Slushie will temporarily cool you down during the season that makes your antiperspirant work super extra hard. But if you’re a mango maniac, its flavor might not be a letdown.
