McDonald’s Is Bringing Back Donut Sticks for the Holidays

McDonald's is the right destination for a sweet holiday pick-me-up.

You love all things sweet during winter? So do we, and all of the best brands are delivering their seasonal goodies ahead of time, so we can enjoy the taste of the holidays while it’s still moderately warm outside. Coffee-Mate released their Christmas-inspired Dark Chocolate Peppermint creamer in late September to get ahead of the holiday rush, and Aldi just announced their lineup of Advent calendars. To top it all off, Hallmark is churning out Christmas movies as early as October 25 for those who are getting in the spirit early.

McDonald’s isn’t one to be left behind, and those golden arches are about to turn green and red for the winter. Just yesterday, we got a sneak peek at McDonald’s seasonal menu, which has a brand-new holiday latte—the first of its kind in over five years. And most importantly, Donut Sticks are back!

McDonald’s Is Bringing the Holiday Spirit with a Seasonal Menu

Christmas is the time for all things spicy and sweet, and nothing curbs that craving better than a mouthful of cinnamon cookies. Thanks to McDonald’s and courtesy of the McCafe, now you can enjoy your favorite flavors in the all-new Cinnamon Cookie Latte. The season’s best to-go cup treat comes topped with an extra sprinkle of cinnamon and can be served hot or cold. It’s available for a budget-friendly $2 if you order a small. Could it get any sweeter?

Fans of all breakfast-inspired dippers will be ecstatic to know Donut Sticks are making a comeback, too. But this time, you’ll receive a side of chocolate sauce with your order. McDonald’s Donut Sticks are crunchy and coated in cinnamon, but soft in the center, just the way doughnuts should be. You can get them by the dozen (or half dozen) during breakfast hours, though McDonald’s hasn’t established a price for these poppers just yet. We’re just happy to see our favorite breakfast item back on the menu.

Have you heard about the cinnamony Snickerdoodle McFlurry? It may be coming to a store near you.

This Menu Is Only Here for the Holidays

Sadly, Christmas doesn’t last forever, and these items will be swept away with the sleigh and reindeer before you know it. That’s why you should get into McDonald’s ASAP on November 6—the official launch date for these treats. They’re perfect for a cozy morning next to the fire while you rerun the Grinch, and we won’t blame you for going back time after time for a Cinnamon Cookie Latte and a double order of Donut Sticks. Be first in line on November 6, and don’t miss out on these specialty snacks!
