McDonald's Is Launching a New Bakery Item This Month

If you're looking for a different kind of seasonal treat this fall, McDonald's upcoming addition to the McCafé Bakery line may be just what you're craving.

Starting September 14, participating McDonald's restaurants nationwide will begin serving the Cheese Danish. This rare addition to the McCafé food lineup will be available all day and offer an enticing blend of pastry, cheese, and vanilla.

The flakey pastry is filled with sweet cream cheese and topped with a buttery streusel and a light drizzle of vanilla. And while it's a novelty for many of us, the Danish is actually a remixed, fresh take on a pastry McDonald's first added to its menu in the 1980s.

If your mouth is already watering, don't wait too long. The Cheese Danish will only be available for a limited time.

Historically, McDonald's has been very hesitant to add new baked goods to its menu. In fact, prior to launching the McCafé Bakery lineup in 2020 with the Apple Fritter, Blueberry Muffin, and Cinnamon Roll, the McDonald's menu hadn't seen a new pastry added in over a decade!

The Golden Arches are clearly more willing to consider new pastries in recent years. Last year saw the introduction of the limited-time Glazed Pull Apart Donut, but customers loved the item so much McDonald's decided to bring it back earlier this year. If customer response is positive enough, the Cheese Danish will likely make a comeback as well.

An absolute juggernaut in the quick-service industry, McDonald's didn't sell any breakfast items at all for decades. The chain's foray into the morning daypart started when a Pittsburgh-based franchise owner Jim Delligatti decided to start selling doughnuts and sweet rolls at his McDonald's restaurant in 1970.

The baked goods were a local success, setting the stage for a nationwide breakfast menu rollout in 1977. Less than 10 years later, McDonald's was serving one in four U.S. breakfasts not prepared at home.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
