McDonald’s McCafe Real Strawberry Banana Fruit Smoothie
Finally, the 2010 FIFA World Cup tournament ended with a dramatic win in overtime by the Spain and it was definitely a physical game between the two countries. The Netherlands has so many chances to score, but I guess the better team wins. Now the question is “what were you drinking while watching the game?” For me, I was sucking McCafe Strawberry Banana fruit smoothie from McDonald while watching the 2010 FIFA World Cup final game and there were a lot of “Oh man” “Ah dang” “wow” and “Goooooal!” moments.
The aroma coming from this smoothie drink is same as the strawberry yogurt that you get from your local supermarket. There’s no banana scent, but the so called strawberry banana yogurt smoothie smells good. The texture and the color of the smoothie was way off from their ad picture. The first couple sips were not really sweet and it was all strawberry flavors. After stirring the smoothie using the straw, the taste becomes more balanced and you get to taste a bit of sourness in this yogurt smoothie. You can’t really taste the banana flavor because of the dominated strawberry flavor. As you sucking up more, occasionally you get to bite the small particles from strawberries and you can see they are all stayed at the bottom of the smoothie cup. Under a hot humid weather, the smoothie melts very fast and becomes watery in couple minutes. As of result, the smoothie looks like someone had just thrown up, quite nasty looking. After sucking half of the smoothie, you start to feel its pretty sour, but I still managed to chuck it down. Some how I feel there’s no freshness in this real fruit smoothie. Where is the “Real Fruit” flavor?
Even thought I ordered a small size just to test it out, the amount of calories is pretty high. According to McDonald’s smoothie nutrition facts, it contains 210 calories. The strawberry banana fruit blend contains 180 calories and the low fat yogurt contains about 25 calories. This smoothie recipe is not that appealing because it uses yogurt, fruits and ice. It seems like the McDonald wants to get in to the smoothie business?
I really can’t taste the real fruit flavor. The McDonald’s employee personnel make this drink just by using a blender. She didn’t even use a smoothie maker or a smoothie machine. It took only about 1 min to make this smoothie drink and I guess this qualifies as a fast food drink. Well, I have to try their wild berry flavor to see if it’s good and I hope it will be tasty.
