McDonald’s Brings New, Exclusive Beverage ‘MIX by Sprite™ Tropic Berry’ to Restaurants
New York City customers will have first access to new beverage, with nearly all restaurants nationwide serving it by summer 2018
OAK BROOK, Ill. - McDonald’s and Sprite®, the world's leading lemon-lime flavored soft drink, are launching an exclusive beverage just for McDonald’s customers: MIX™ by Sprite Tropic Berry – a new flavor that combines the delicious lemon-lime taste of Sprite with tropically-inspired fruit flavors. This new beverage continues McDonald’s progress of changing for the better through positive updates such as All Day Breakfast, Signature Crafted Recipes with premium toppings, delivery on UberEATS, a new value platform with $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu and more.
Customers in New York City are the first to experience MIX by Sprite Tropic Berry. The beverage is available now in participating New York City restaurants. Nearly all McDonald’s restaurants nationwide will be in the mix, serving it by summer 2018.
"We're mixing things up, so to speak, at McDonald's with a new, exclusive drink," said Linda VanGosen, vice president, Menu Innovation. “We collaborated with Sprite to make MIX, an exclusive-to-McDonald's drink that combines lemon-lime and tropically-inspired fruit flavors. The flavor is craveable and delicious, and we know our customers will come back for more of this unique beverage once they try it.”
MIX by Sprite Tropic Berry joins McDonald’s core beverage lineup as the first MIX by Sprite flavor, which will be available exclusively in McDonald’s restaurants. Like the original Sprite, MIX by Sprite Tropic Berry is caffeine-free and is made with 100% natural flavors.
“Sprite has introduced several new flavor varieties over the last five years” said Bobby Oliver, Brand Director of Sprite. “Each product launch has built upon our signature lemon-lime taste while adding a splash of something new.”
MIX by Sprite Tropic Berry is available as a part of the company’s ongoing beverage promotion of any size soft drink for $1*. McDonald’s announced in December that any size soft drink for $1 will also be part of its new $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu launching this month.
We can't wait to show you what's next.
*A la carte only. At participating McDonald's. Cannot be combined with any other offer or any combo meal.
