These Seasonal McCafé by Barista Drinks Were Offered in Japan

For the Spring of 2016, McDonald's Japan launched its McCafé by Barista menu, which featured various high quality coffee products, desserts, and chocolate banana smoothies that made for a filling snack that helped consumers to crush the heat.

The chocolate banana smoothies were previously made available for a limited time from select locations, but due to popular demand, they made another debut. Aesthetically pleasing, the smoothies feature the banana blend with layers of chocolate drizzle separating them, along with a generous dollop of whipped cream topping it off, which also has chocolate drizzled over it.

Due to their seasonal nature, the chocolate banana products within the McCafé by Barista menu were a hit among those who are fans of the celebrated combination of flavors. As the products were only offered for a few weeks at a time, consumers were more motivated to try them as well.
