|My Local McDonald's|
McDonald's does not usually jump to my mind when choosing a breakfast restaurant. If the same is true for you, you might be pleased to know the recently introduced bakery items are baked on site with fresh ingredients and whole berries. The price for these baked goods is right as well, ranging from $1.59 - $1.89. Add any size Newman's Own Organic coffee for just $1.00 and you've got a quick to-go breakfast. Are you watching your calories? The whole grain berry muffin has just 280 calories, making it a healthy choice.

In contrast, the blueberry muffin appeared to have more berries and had a lighter texture. I preferred the texture of the blueberry muffin over the whole grain berry muffin. The Wild Berry Smoothie was very flavorful and had a smooth, creamy texture. At 210 calories, the 12 ounce size is a good choice if you prefer your morning meal in liquid form.
Overall, I found the muffins to be of average quality and not tasty enough to make McDonald's my preferred choice for baked goods. I applaud their use of fresh ingredients and the value pricing. These factors make McDonald's just one more option when choosing a place to buy your coffee and baked goods.
I was not asked to write this review and was not compensated for this post. I was given coupons good for two free baked goods and one free smoothie at McDonald's. The opinions offered in this post are mine alone.
