McDonald’s fans are only just realising there’s a ‘lush’ summer flavour frappe on menus that’s better than Starbucks

McDonald’s fans are loving the newest addition to the restaurant’s summer menu – and it’s the cheapest around.

The fast food chain has brought two classic flavors to all UK restaurants.

Drinks are almost half the price of similar flavors at Starbucks and Costa

This includes strawberry and ice cream smoothies and lattes with a whole new recipe.

Shoppers are raving about the smoothie flavors – one fan said: “I had strawberry and ice cream tonight, [it] Very good”.

Another said the drink was “super tasty” and “the best drink ever”.

The iced dish is almost half the price of the Starbucks coffee chain, which also sells strawberry and cream flavored drinks.

You can get strawberries and ice cream smoothies at McDonald’s for £3.09.

At Starbucks, a moderate strawberry and cream frappuccino will set you back up to £5.15 – although prices can vary by location.

Meanwhile at Costa, strawberry and cream smoothies start from £3.90 for the small and £4.20 for the medium, but can go up to £4.05 for the small and £4.35 for the medium, depending on the location.

Customers have also raved about the new and improved iced latte: one customer said it “taste great” and reminded them of a vacation in Greece.

An iced latte costs up to £2.59 at McDonald’s, while a similar cold latte at Starbucks costs up to £4.85 without a refill.

New drinks are available at McDonald’s until September 5, but strawberries and smoothies are only available for pick up.

That means you can’t have it delivered to your door and you’ll have to go to stores to buy it.

McDonald’s has more than 1,000 locations, and you can find the closest one using the store locator on their website.

You can order drinks at the store or pick them up using the McDonald’s app.

Free to download on both iOS and Android.

Once you have it, you can sign up with an account and join the McDonald’s rewards program.

This app will allow you to browse the latest menu available at the restaurant.
