McDonald's Just Launched A Limited Time Cheesy Breakfast
McDonald’s started serving breakfast in 1971, and the morning meal has grown to make up nearly a quarter of the chain’s sales ever since. The menu already features nostalgic favorites like the classic Egg McMuffin, flaky hash browns, and the McGriddle — and now, just in time for fall 2022, the chain is adding a new sweet to its lineup: the Cheese Danish.
The Cheese Danish will be available for a limited time only at participating McDonald's locations, starting September 14. Per the chain’s website, the pastry clocks in at 390 calories and features a sugary cream cheese filling, crumbly buttery streusel, and vanilla drizzle. You may not have heard about the pastry before, but this isn’t the first time it's been at McDonald's.
According to a blog, the Cheese Danish — along with apple, raspberry, and cinnamon — was a classic breakfast in the 1980s. "It's just like an Entenmann's cheese danish," noted one person, while another claimed, "It was always the perfect temperature and always soft and absolutely perfect." Several others loved how the danishes were served warm with a pat of butter on top.
