McDonalds New Summer Drinks

I don't really like fast food. I would rather try to suck it up and survive until I get home or I can stop by the grocery store. My cravings for fast food usually occur after a night on the town but sometimes pulling through the drive through is so convenient and my hunger is so overwhelming that I just have to make a trip.

I am a sucker for fun, fruity drinks and dipping sauces and McDonalds has released some new ones recently. Since I have sampled a few recently I felt it was my duty to report my findings.

I have been wanting to try their Frozen Strawberry Lemonade for a while and when I finally got around to trying it I was very disappointed. The drink just tasted bad overall. There was not enough strawberry in it, and the lemonade was tart and had a horrible after taste. I have heard rumors that if you ask for extra Strawberry mix, the drink is tolerable but I will not be wasting my time with this drink again.
On the way back from the beach the other day, our group stopped at a McDonalds to use the restroom, so I felt obligated to buy something. I decided to try the new "real fruit smoothie" they have been promoting: Mango Pineapple. This was very tasty. I love mango and pineapple, and the combo is even better! It was a little sweet, so a small smoothie would quench your appetite/thirst, and it would be perfect if it had a little less sugar in it.
McDonalds also has 4 new nugget dipping sauces they are debuting, but I have only tried the spicy buffalo. This one was really good-just your basic buffalo sauce, although it didn't go well with the flavor of the chicken nuggets. Although I am not a huge fan of sweet and sour, I will have to say it does mesh well with the flavors of the nuggets.
I thought I would end my post with some lovely artwork created by me courtesy of the McDonalds website. Yes, I was absolutely hooked when I went on their website to look at the smoothies, if you want to try it out click here.
