McDonald’s Japan Releases Peach Smoothie and Frappe Made From Three Kinds of Peaches

28.April.2021 | FOOD

McDonald’s Japan is releasing two new beverages at McCafé by Barista® on April 28 each made with three varieties of peach: the Gorotto Peach Smoothie and Fuwa Fuwa Peach Creamy Frappe.

Gorotto Peach Smoothie: Regular ¥440 / Large ¥480

Fuwa Fuwa Peach Creamy Frappe: Regular ¥490 / Large ¥530

McDonald’s Japan’s original Peach Smoothie and Peach Frappe beverages first appeared in 2015 and have been slurped up by customers every year since. This year, they return even juicier and more delicious than ever before by being made with three kinds of peach juice: yellow peach, white peach, and for the first time, nectarine.

 

The Gorotto Peach Smoothie cup is topped with a sauce made from fresh white peach pieces that give an exquisite sweet kick to the richly sweet yellow peach. The nectarine adds a sweet and sour layer to the mix for the ultimate peach combination. The Fuwa Fuwa Peach Creamy Frappe has all of this plus a topping of fluffy whipped cream. And for an extra ¥60, customers can double the amount of sauce they can have on either of these drinks.

While these limited-time drinks are on offer, customers can pick up a stamp card. For every peach frappe or smoothie ordered, they’ll get a stamp. Collect all four and get yourself a free regular-sized mango smoothie, green smoothie, chocolate frappe, or espresso frappe. The card is valid from April 28, 2021 to September 30, 2021.
