McDonald's Removes The Trio Of McCafé Bakery Treats From Its Menu

Fans of McDonald's love the fast food chain for more than its Big Macs and fries; its breakfast options remain insanely popular, as do its sweet treats. Then, there are all of its McCafé Bakery offerings, which include the Blueberry Muffin, the Apple Fritter, and the Cinnamon Roll. However, this trio will soon be unavailable as the company has decided to discontinue them.

The three bakery items have been on McDonald's menu since October 2020 and were made available all day (unlike the breakfast menu, which McDonald's stopped serving all day just before the McCafé Bakery items were introduced). It's certainly a blow to baked goods fans everywhere. But what's with the menu change?

"We're always listening to our fans and adjusting our menu based on what they crave. Starting this month, we'll be phasing out our McCafé Bakery line-up, including the Apple Fritter, Blueberry Muffin and Cinnamon Roll," McDonald's explained to Tasting Table in a statement.

McDonald's customers can satisfy their sweet tooth elsewhere

The company went on to address the fact that some McDonald's customers may not be too happy about the decision: "We know goodbyes are never easy — but fans can still satisfy their sweet tooth with our iconic Chocolate Chip Cookies, Baked Apple Pie and frozen desserts at restaurants nationwide," it stated.

While McDonald's customers are likely happy to hear that some of the sweet treats are remaining on the menu, there are certainly still plenty of people unhappy with the news. Luckily, as the company explained, the exit of the McCafé treats may not be as abrupt as one might imagine as no official date has been given for the discontinuation. And McDonald's further claimed it is always listening to what its customers want, so if it seems that enough people are unhappy with the decision, there seems to be a chance that the McCafé Bakery items could return.
