As fall approaches, McDonald’s is skipping pumpkin and maple flavors in favor of reviving a bakery the chain hasn’t served in decades.
Starting September 14, McDonald’s will begin serving a cheese danish as a limited time offer. The puff pastry, originally served by the chain in the 1980s, will feature a sweet cream cheese filling with a buttery streusel and a light drizzle of vanilla.
The treat joins other baked goods at McDonald’s, including cinnamon rolls, apple fritters and blueberry muffins that were originally introduced in 2020.
The addition comes as other fast food chains have revamped their breakfast options. Wendy’s recently added French toast sticks to their breakfast menu, tapping into the nostalgia of kids going back to school.
It is currently unknown how long the Danish cheese will remain on the menu.
