Wow, it's been awhile since McDonald's has contacted me about anything. I guess it had something to do with my indifference to the Angus burgers? Well, give them props for dropping me a line to try their new McCafé festive beverages. Actually... I've already tried them prior because they were like only $1.00 each (not anymore tho...)! And... Well, the Peppermint Mocha is pretty good. Viv has been actually getting them every time she has a chance. Essentially a mocha topped with whipped cream and mini-candy cane-like thingys on top, the drink is sweet, but not too sweet. I could still taste the coffee while the mint flavours make it almost refreshing. I'm not that much of a coffee drinker, but I don't mind it. Could be due to the fact it is not hard-core coffee. Is it better than other gourmet coffees? Well, not really a fair comparison is it? Let's just say, I'd drink it again. As for the Hot Chocolate, it is more of a sweet drink than anything. Not bad, but I actually would prefer a coffee hit to balance the sweetness. Of course the kiddies might prefer the hot chocolate. Oh, and yes, there is a giveaway here. Leave a comment of sorts with your first name and last initial and by 12:01am Monday, I'll draw a winner for a $25 McDonald’s Gift Card, McCafé branded travel mug, Be My Guest cards and chocolate covered espresso beans!
