McDonald’s Japan has been adding Japanese twists to the classic American menu, from crispy tofu nuggets to the delightful Matcha Oreo McFlurry. This time, their new creation might be a little shocking for foreigners unfamiliar with Japanese cuisine – a vivid purple milkshake!
The limited time promotional item Purple Sweet Potato McShake will go on sale from September 10 to celebrate the arrival of autumn. The item will be sold until around the end of October. We expect the full flavor of purple sweet potatoes will blend wonderfully with the creamy vanilla that we’re all too familiar with. The small shake will go for 100 yen (US$0.95), while the medium-sized drink will cost 195 yen ($1.85), so trying this new dessert won’t put a dent in your wallet!
