McDonald’s Berry Inspired First Taste Event

Recently McDonald’s hosted an exclusive berry-inspired First Taste Event to celebrate spring time berries and debut two new menu items - McCafé Cherry Berry Chiller and Blueberry Banana Nut Oatmeal which are part of McDonald’s “Flavors of Summer” limited time menu line-up.


Please Note: I was invited as media and received a gift bag after the event. No other compensation was received. Views expressed are always 100% my own.


The new McCafé Cherry Berry Chiller is made to order with 100 percent fruit juice with natural flavors that combine the sweetness of cherries and raspberries in a refreshing, sippable icy blend, McCafé Cherry Berry Chiller is available all day at participating McDonald’s restaurants nationwide through Sept. 3 while supplies last.

McDonald’s Blueberry Banana Nut Oatmeal is made to order, delivers two servings of natural whole grains with fresh, juicy a quarter cup of blueberries and is fewer than 300 calories. The new oatmeal will be available all day at participating McDonald’s restaurants through July 24, while supplies last.


Since this was a McDonald’s event, of course there was lots of taste testing happening. But guest also enjoyed, manicures by Lisa Logan, (manicurist to stars like Beyonce & others), Massages and Make-up tips and makeovers.


Guest were also able to meet with lifestyle expert (Bobbie Thomas) and nutrition experts (Tanya Zuckerbrot, MS, RD and Sylvia Meléndez-Klinger, MS, RD) to discuss ways to “get your berry fix” this summer.

Since I'm trying to break out my plain mom mode and add some color splases to my style I spent some time chatting with lifestyle expert Bobbie Thomas about easy and simple ways moms (and other women) can tap into the berry color trend.


Let me just say that Bobbie was excited to take me in hand and give me the berry fashion 101 rundown. LOL. Bobble mentioned that adding clothing and accessories in berry tones and colors was one of the easiest way. Search your local stores to find reasonably prices tops to add to your wardrobe.

You can also accessorize with color using fun elements like hair clips, jewelry, belts, even makeup. From lip stick to nail polish you can add the fun color of spring berry into your life.

Many thanks to Bobbie Thomas to the fashion advice (and encouragement) and to McDonald’s for these new yummy spring/summer time treats.
