McDonald’s Adds Donut Sticks to Breakfast Menu

McDonald’s is adding cinnamon sugar-dusted doughnut sticks to its breakfast menu, as it faces increased competition from other fast food chains. The long-rumored items will go on sale Feb. 20 for a limited time.

Technically called Donut Sticks, the addition is McDonald’s take on Dunkin’s popular ‘Donut Fries,’ a limited-time menu item that made its debut at the competitor last July. Rumors about the menu addition began circulating toward the beginning of the year.

‘We initially tested them in select Illinois restaurants in early 2018, and then again in October 2018,’ said Linda VanGosen, McDonald’s vice president of menu innovation, in a statement. ‘We looked at several donut shapes, tested a variety of doughs and even worked to get the amount of cinnamon sugar just right for the recipe.’
