McDonald’s McCafe Real Wild Berry Fruit Smoothie
Another humid day in New York City! After trying real fruit strawberry banana smoothie from McDonald and didn’t quite like the taste. So, I went out and ordered the other real fruit smoothie and it’s called the Wild Berry Fruit Smoothie. The main wild berry flavor is a mix of strawberries, blackberries and blueberries. Now, why would they want to have a mix fruit smoothie rather than individual flavors? If you mix them together, it loses the essence taste of that particular flavor.
This wild berry fruit smoothie smells great, but the texture of this fruit smoothie wasn’t close to standard smoothie texture because it’s kind of watery and looks nastier than strawberry banana smoothie. However, the color makes the smoothie looks fresher than the other McCafe smoothie. My first reaction to the taste was sweet after first few sips and even if I stir the whole cup up side down, you could still taste the sweetness. So, I let the ice dissolve a bit and the taste becomes more enjoyable than before. Since the wild berry contains strawberries, blackberries and blueberries, it seems the only flavor that dominates is the strawberry. I guess the strawberry is the big brother that beats down their little brothers. After chucking down ¾ of the cup under a humid day, the ice was almost gone and the heavy sweet and sour wild berry flavors started to kick in. It feels like sipping melted ice cream in a bowl because of this thick and creamy texture. You could see a lot of small particles at the bottom of the drink from the berries just like the strawberry banana flavor. The aftertaste was all sweet and sour, but that not bad at all.
Since I ordered a small size last time just to test it out, I order it a small size again to see if it has the real fruit flavor taste. The amount of calories in this small size cup according to McDonald’s smoothie nutrition facts is 210 calories. The wild berry fruit blend contains 180 calories and the low fat yogurt contains about 25 calories. It is the exact same amount of calories as their strawberry banana smoothie.
For this flavor, I can taste the not so convincing real fruit flavor. It was a refreshing and tasty fruit smoothie and it’s better than the strawberry banana fruit smoothie. Again, 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. This time it only took about half min to make this smoothie drink. I will try the wild berry again in other McDonald’s store and see if there’s a difference.
