December is here and that means I am in full holiday mode! The tree is up, our new house is strung with lights and I’ve already dressed up Baby Cormac in a sweet Christmas outfit. But the holidays aren’t just about the decorations for me. They’re also about the food! And McDonald’s Canada has introduced some delicious festive menu items that I couldn’t wait to try.
It may still be November, but my mind is already dreaming of holiday cheer and festive celebrations. November can be a dreary month, so I figure it only makes sense to perk it up a bit with a little early merriment.
And I’m so happy that McDonald’s Canada feels the same way! The company recently debuted its festive McCafé cups – which include four designs (stars, mittens, trees and snowflakes) – and a bright red lid to help add a little extra cheer to my morning. Paired with my favourite freshly baked chocolate chunk cookie, it’s the perfect way to start ringing in the holidays.
Even better, McDonald’s is kicking off the giving early too, by offering any size of its Premium Roast Coffee for just one dollar (plus tax) until December 10th! Whether you love your McCafé Premium Roast Coffee black or need some extra sweetness with cream and sugar, this deal is sure to put a smile on any coffee-lover’s face.
I tend to stick to my medium coffee with double cream when I get my morning brew, but I’ll be upgrading to a large for the next few weeks. Getting to enjoy a little bit more and spend a little bit less is a great way to kick of the holiday season in my opinion!
And if you’re looking for the perfect pairing for your McCafé Premium Roast Coffee, try the authentic French croissant, cream cheese Danish or a light and delicious More-Ning McWrap made with scrambled eggs! But in all truth, no matter how you pair your coffee, these festive coffee cups and the money you’ll save over the next few weeks is sure to have you ready to ring in the holidays!
When I was a child, Monopoly was one of my very favourite games. Even though I knew the game could take all day, I thought there was nothing better than sitting down with my family, choosing my favourite race car playing piece and beginning my mission to become a real-estate mogul.
Then, as usual, McDonald’s Canada found a way to make a good thing even better with McDonald’s Monopoly! This contest has always been one of my favourites, and I especially love that it features popular Canadian landmarks to replace the traditional Monopoly properties!
When I was a child, one of my favourite special treats was getting to eat at McDonald’s. I loved being able to climb, run and slide at the McDonald’s Play Place. I loved seeing the fun toy that was inside my McDonald’s Happy Meal. I loved my little box of McDonald’s cookies.
McDonald’s was a somewhat magical place to me, and to this day I still remember how excited I was when one of my friends invited me to a McDonald’s birthday party. Ronald McDonald was usually there and the lucky birthday boy or girl always had a special birthday treat bag. [Read more…]
It’s hard for me to believe that 2017 is flying by so quickly, but in just a few more days it will be Canada’s 150th birthday celebration! There are all kinds of ways people love to celebrate Canada Day and over the years, I’ve tried most of them. Heading out on the lake for a day of boating, hosting friends in the backyard for a barbeque, joining in a large public celebration in the nearest city…choosing my favourite way to spend July 1 is like choosing my favourite thing about Canada: pretty much impossible!
Disclosure: I was compensated for this post, but my opinions are my own.
When I was a child, having a Happy Meal at McDonald’s was one of my favourite special treats for dinner. Choosing my meal item, having cookies for dessert, the surprise of the toy, every bit of it was something to be savoured. And while McDonald’s Happy Meals have changed a lot over the years, one thing hasn’t changed…how much they’re loved by children across Canada!
But now, McDonald’s Canada has found a way to make Happy Meals even happier, and it’s one I couldn’t be more excited about. Thanks to a great new partnership with Kids Can Press and First Book Canada, children will have one more way to personalize their Happy Meal by choosing between a toy and a book, starting today!

It’s been just over a week now since the debut of the McDonald’s All Day Breakfast and I have to say that I couldn’t be enjoying it more. To me, the Sausage McMuffin is a perfect light lunch or snack, and now I can enjoy one any time I want! And personally, McDonald’s Hash Browns have always been my favourite side, so I’m pretty happy that I can now get one instead of fries or a salad with my meals at lunch or dinner! McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets with a Hash Brown for the win!
Now, this week, McDonald’s Canada is making a good thing even better with seven days of FREE coffee! Until Sunday, March 5, get a free small coffee any time of day, no purchase required! As a big fan of McDonald’s Premium Roast blend, I already get to enjoy free coffee fairly often thanks to the company’s coffee rewards. I just collect the stickers on my drinks to earn a free medium hot beverage after seven purchases. But that doesn’t mean I’m not excited about getting treated to free coffee this week too!
February has been a month full of celebrations. First, there was the romance of Valentine’s Day. Then, the fun and togetherness of Family Day. And now, to top off all the fun, the official launch of McDonald’s All Day Breakfast is here! I have to admit, I’ve been counting down the days to February 21. Treating myself to McDonald’s breakfast is one of my favourite little indulgences, but I’ve been too late to enjoy it more than once. Now that’s no longer a worry since my favourite breakfast items are available any time at all!
Wondering what items are available as part of McDonald’s All Day Breakfast? Of course, the McMuffin family takes the starring role with the Egg McMuffin, Bacon ‘n Egg McMuffin, Sausage ‘n Egg McMuffin and Sausage McMuffin all available all day long. But any fan of McDonald’s Breakfast knows that no meal is complete without a crispy and delicious McDonald’s Hash Brown, so that tasty treat is also available all day! And for those with a sweet tooth, McDonald’s Hotcakes are offered as the final any time breakfast item.
