I’m disrupting my routine this morning.
Instead of waking up early to blog, I chose to snuggle with Reid until 7:30am.
I normally give the kids cereal and chocolate milk for breakfast, but today, I’m dressing them in warm layers.
And, I’m trading blogging for a road trip.
It’s not a very long road trip; chances are, we’ll be in the car for just 3 minutes.
Not even long enough for the heat to kick in, really.
In fact, it’ll probably take me more time to dress the boys than to reach our destination.
But, my mind has been made up and now it’s time to go.
We’re headed to McDonald’s – where I’ll finally have a chance to experience their new Raspberry Mocha. I’ve been dreaming about it for days! Soon, chocolately fruity beverage, you will be mine.
See you sweethearts! Have a most splendid day, and stay warm! I plan on cozying up to this little drink.
so how was it? is it worth my drive there this afternoon?
So the verdict is… it’s quite yummy! It was warm, and comforting, and reminded me of the raspberry-chocolate candies I had as a child. I would definitely give it a try – and I WILL order it again!
I loved it too :)
OH that looks SO wonderful!! All the good things are made with milk….do you know if they have the option of soy or almond milk?? I hate missing out.
I just tweeted them for you, asking that exact question! Will let you know when they reply!
Okay, I found the question/answer in their FAQ’s – “We don’t have any current plans to offer soy milk or milk alternatives for our McCafé beverages. However, our menu is always evolving to suit the tastes of our customers, so this is an option that may be considered in the future. Thanks for your suggestion!”
Looks delish! I didnt know they offered this drink. I see a ‘road trip’ in my future this weekend!
Sweet! Be sure to let us know what you think!
Gee, now I want one… Wonder if they’re in Canada yet… haven’t seen them advertised.
They are, indeed! I first saw the ad on the McD’s Canada Facebook page.
Looks yummy! I think I’ll take a drive and try it myself!
Please do, Marissa!
Oh my! I had no idea such a drink existed! It looks delicious :-) I forsee a trip to McD’s soon! :-D
Yay! I happened to see it on their FB page and am so glad I did!
that looks delicious but I don’t like coffee, mocha, cappuccino, or anything like that. I can drink tea, weak but it’s still tea. Anything else and it is a no go… I want to like it.. I want to be a cool kid but oh no.. haha
Hahaha I think for most of us, it’s 50% about being cool, and 50% about fueling our caffeine addiction. And in the case of the Raspberry Mocha, satisfying our sweet tooth too!
Yeah, road trip. Whoo hoo! I hope the raspberry mocha was all you hoped for and more. ;)
Lena, I do not drink coffee but it does look rather tasty.
It was quite delish, Melissa! Well worth the road trip :)
You have just made me crave one of these babies lol
Ha, then you must try it out!
I tried one yesterday – didn’t like the raspberry sauce (topping?) right on the whip cream but once I got to the mocha part where it just gave a little hint, it was lovely! I’m usually pretty rigid about where I get my coffee but the combination was too tempting to pass up and I’m glad I gave it a shot!
Pink Chai Style
Thanks so much Raj, I’m so happy you shared your feedback! The hint of raspberry in the mocha is indeed very lovely!
Oooh! That looks sooo good!! I think I’ll have to get me one next time I’m passing by a McDonalds
Please do Mandy! I think you’ll really like it!
Oh so delicious I bet, how was it? Thats all I need is another Mocha to become addicted too lol!!! May have to make a trip to Mcd’s tomorrow morning :P
It was yummy, Tammy! And since it’s only available for a limited time, chances are you won’t get addicted to it :)
It looks really pretty in that picture… perfect for Valentine’s Day! Too bad I’m not a big fan of raspberry! Props to McD’s for being creative and coming out with new items though!
Hear, hear! Love when companies are innovative and offer holiday-themed menu items. The Shamrock Shake for St. Patty’s day is my all-time favourite!
Whatt?? Why have I not heard of this! Definitely going to try this
Haha they really haven’t done a huge push to spread the word :)
The picture looks lovely and very tasty. What did the boys have? I remember taking Sara through the drive through for a sausage & egg mcmuffin…our personal favourite. I haven’t been there for a long time but I think that I will try out this McCafe. I wonder if it is real whipped cream…I could eat a ton of just that!! When I was driving home yesterday I passed a McDonald’s…well I slowed down because a Filet-O-Fish was yelling my name! I will give this a try :)
Well, coincidentally… the boys had a sausage and egg McMuffin! They love them, especially Reid :)
I hope you’ll give it a try – and let us know what you think!
Sounds yummy! Read your response to a comment above, glad to hear it tasted yummy too! Raspberry & chocolate are such a good mix!
They really are! Hope you try it Nicole!
Looks and sound tasty. Hopefully I can get them at my local McDonalds.
Fingers crossed Florence!
Looks really yummy will have to try it
Please do Debbie!
I showed this post to a colleague and she went out a got one! Oh marketing.. She also said it was delish, and she got the “skinny” one.
That’s so awesome to hear! And LOL at the “Oh marketing…” comment!
So I saw this on your blog and tried it this afternoon! SO GOOD! I love it! The saucey-syrup wasn’t my favourite part and I’ll order it again without it. But it was yummy, thanks for letting me know about it!
LOVE it! So happy you enjoyed – and thanks for letting everyone know!
Seriously…they have this at McDonalds!! Guess where I stopping today! I wanted to lick my laptop screen, this looks so good…glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the recommendation.
Seriously! And LOL to you licking your laptop screen!
I hate the greasy smell that comes every time I pass through McDonalds. I would love to try the coffee just for that fruity flavor but oh boy, that smell drives me away right at the entrance!
Hahaha it’s worth it – maybe just think mocha thoughts :)
Well I tried one and it wasn’t bad, mine did not look anything like that picture though
Oh, but food at McD’s never looks like the picture! Thanks for trying it!
I too was dying to try this, as I have made a huge leap from Timmies to Mc D’s coffee, I have to say I love all they have to offer – My Fave over the holidays was the Peppermint Mocha, so hoping it was not going to be out done i needed to have the Raspberry!! I have mixed emotions about it – It smells great, but maybe it was just the way the lady made it, i think she didn’t put enough – so to fair i have plans to try it again, maybe a different server will make it better – i hope so!
Oooh, thanks for the feedback Chantelle! It may be server error – you’re right, you should be able to taste the raspberry!
Probably missed this but it does look yummy!
ooh that looks soo good.
