McDonald's has a near cult-like following for its breakfast menu -- especially when it comes to new items. The buzz should reach fever pitch later this month: the fast-food giant will debut a limited time innovation -- McCafe Donut Sticks.
Starting Feb. 20, for a limited time, you can enjoy the combo of Donut Sticks and McCafe coffee during breakfast hours at participating restaurants nationwide, McDonald's announced this week.
It'll be its first sweet treat offered exclusively at breakfast.
Donut Sticks are made with a soft doughy inside and crunchy on the outside topped with cinnamon sugar and served warm. They were initially tested in a few restaurants in Illinois last year, sampling the recipe until "we perfected them," according to Linda VanGosen, McDonald's vice president of menu innovation.
VanGosen said the company looked at several donut shapes, tested different doughs, and worked on getting the right amount of cinnamon sugar before making the final decision.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, customers can grab some Donut Sticks for themselves or by the half dozen or dozen for their loved ones.
