McDonald’s Japan teams up with Godiva for first time to create delicious new dessert drink

By Casey Baseel, SoraNews24

Even in Japan, McDonald’s is about as casual as dining gets. That doesn’t mean the chain is in any way simply the last resort of customers who can’t afford to go anywhere fancier, though, as it also prides itself on serving up tasty food and drink.

They even have an entire sub-brand in Japan, McCafe by Barista, under which select McDonald’s branches also offer a special menu of extra-tempting cafe-style desserts and dessert beverages. Earlier in the year, McCafe by Barista added a lineup of Kyoto green tea drinks, and now they’re about to enter into their first-ever collaboration with Belgian chocolatier Godiva.

The Godiva Chocolate Espresso Frappe is a blended ice beverage with, naturally, all sorts of chocolate poured into the cup. The base is a mix of milk, cocoa powder, and an espresso-infused dark chocolate sauce made with roasted cocoa bean cocoa mass. This is topped not with normal whipped cream, but a luxurious swirl of chocolate whipped cream, and finished with a winding drizzle of Belgian high-cocoa-butter couverture chocolate sauce.

If even all that’s not enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, perhaps because you crave your indulgent toppings in threes, you can even upgrade to the Godiva Chocolate Espresso Frappe and Macaron, which adds a vanilla cream macaron as its jewel in the crown.

The Godiva Chocolate Espresso Frappe is priced at 540 yen, with the macaron version an extra 100 yen.

Japan: where the Golden Arches are aspirational.

To survive and prosper, you need to innovate. Not really a Maccas fan anymore, but these drinks do look quite tempting.

You know, if I wasn't vegan and if I didn't mind becoming diabetic, I'd actually go for this. But I'll save 540 yen. Could get a big hearty, healthy lunch for that price.

Godiva has really gone downhill lately.

While in the USA the only thing to look forward to from McBurger is the McRib / McRat...

My chocaholic daughters will love this. I will add a McCafe gift card to their holiday presents so they can test it out.
