Next month, the corporation will finally debut smoothies in Strawberry Banana and Wild Berry, the result of a year's worth of testing. What's more, the quick-service behemoth is now experimenting with frozen juice blends, slushies comparable to those famously served at rival Sonic. Test markets for flavors like strawberry lemonade currently include Michigan and Austin.
McDonald's has found surprising success with the introduction of premium roast coffee, sweet tea, and McCafé lattes and cappuccinos. It'll be interesting to see if the brand has good fortune with cold Summer refreshments. Are you into the concept of a McDonald's slushie?
Now the international coffee corporation hopes to further sales by allowing consumers to order the drink with soy milk instead of dairy, decaffeinated instead of caffeinated coffee, more espresso, and varying levels of syrup and whipped cream.
I've dreamt about this option for as long as I can remember, and I already know what I'd order: A Starbucks Frappuccino in Javachip, light on the syrup, with soy instead of milk, twice the espresso, and no whipped cream. What would you ask for?

Sure, I enjoy the occasional piña colada poolside, but when it comes to frozen drinks, I normally stay away. They're sugary, too filling, and brain-freeze inducing.
How do you feel about them?
