McDonald’s Japan launches popcorn drinks

McDonalds Popcorn DrinkFollowing a limited-edition French macaron release last month, McDonald’s Japan is continuing to draw attention to its McCafe by Barista branches with a more unusual menu twist: popcorn drinks.

Available at Japan’s 90 McCafe by Barista outlets from Friday, there are three variations of the limited-edition beverages.

Iced Caramel Popcorn Latte: This combines the flavours of espresso with caramel syrup and popcorn syrup, plus whole popcorn pieces, whipped cream and sauce topping, as well as creamy cold milk.

Hot Caramel Popcorn Latte: This is similar to the iced version but uses hot foamed milk.

Caramel Popcorn Frappe: This features whole pieces of popcorn inside a sweet waffle cone that juts out from the beverage, which is an icy espresso and caramel/popcorn syrup blend topped with caramel-flavoured whipped cream and caramel sauce.

McDonald’s said it is aiming to add even more creative beverages to its McCafe by Barista outlets in the future, reported Sora New 24. The popcorn series will be available until the middle of February.
