Review: McDonald’s Frozen Lemonade

May 15, 2011

BSD got a coupon for a free frozen strawberry lemonade from McDonalds from the Sunday Newspaper so we wanted  to try it out and let you know if it’s worth the $1.59 purchase price.  First off, it’s twelve ounces and we didn’t finish it.  I know that doesn’t sound good, but strictly speaking in terms of value I’m just saying a little goes a long way.  The taste is actually very good.  I particularly enjoyed the strawberry and the two flavors mixed together really well.

At first sip, pre-stir, I got wonderful strawberry flavor that made me wonder if they didn’t use real strawberries.  The beverage blended to order, which is supposed to be special because it’s hand made for you, but the reality is that not having a machine that consistently  churns the icy mixture means that it comes out chunky and not smooth.  Unfortunately, as with most frozen beverages we reached that inevitable point where it began to separate into icy mush and strong syrupy liquid.

It was good for a few really good sips though.  We thought it would be priced at $2 and were surprised to discover it actually retails for $1.59.  I think that’s pretty reasonable, especially if you share it which could easily be done.  I wouldn’t get it for myself for more than a dollar, but with the dollar off coupon at the McDonalds website you can do even better and try it for $.59.  That’s a steal.  I definitely recommend it at that price.  Try it with a friend.

Are YOU going to try it?

Hmmmm…I’m willing to try almost anything if it’s free but I can’t find the coupon.

I tried one today and it was HORRIBLE. There’s nothing fresh about this expcept the ice it’s blended in. Lemonade concentrate that’s neither natural or delicious, the strawberry is just artificial flavoring smothered in high fructose corn syrup. Save your money.

The initial few sips were not so bad. However, after the drink sat few a minutes, it separated into this really disgusting looking science experiment. Did they really process strawberry lemonade?! The “drink” bubbled/morphed into this pale pink mass that kept bubbling towards to the top. I nearly became sick at the sight of this…and how quickly the drink changed. I simply cannot bring myself to buy this again.

I used the coupon for the free drink and this was by far the worst drink I have ever had, I thought the initial sip was so bad, I thought I just tasted it wrong and took another sip- I did not take a 3rd.
Maybe different McDonald’s make them differently so some people think they are good but I am not paying money to find out – So Gross! Please save your money.
