McDonald's, Fast Food
NEW YORK, NY – FEBRUARY 09: An awning stands over a McDonald’s entrance in lower Manhattan on February 9, 2015 in New York City. McDonald’s Corporation has said sales in January fell a worse-than-expected 1.8%. While the fast-food restaurant chain said U.S. and Europe sales showed signs of improvement, Asia sales slowed. McDonald’s is facing new completion from trendier and more health conscious fast food chains like Chipotle Mexican Grill and Shake Shack. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images) /

2. Peppermint Mocha — McDonald’s

Oh, tis’ is the season at McDonald’s.

It’s quite a shock to find McDonald’s this high on a holiday fast-food item list, and they almost pulled off an upset with their Peppermint Mocha McCafe drink. Made just for the holiday season, the Peppermint Mocha comes in either cold or hot and both come topped with whipped cream drizzled with chocolate syrup.

The drink just reminds you that the holidays are a special time of the year, and a trip to Ronald McDonald’s palace is in order, just so you can get your hands on this dream McCafe drink.

I really feel like a lot of people sleep on McCafe drinks. They’re exceptionally made and they pack a lot of flavor for half of the cost of a Starbucks drink. Their menu may not be as varied as Starbucks, but what Micky D’s does, they do it well.

The prices are much better, too. You don’t have to take out a second mortgage on your home just to afford a cup of coffee here; and, their drinks are just as social media friendly as its rival. You may not get the number of likes as you will with a Starbucks cup, but, really, once you see the price, you will take a selfie with it, and post “save some money on this dope mocha, yo!”

Or, something like that.
