Just in case you need another reason to want dessert.

Find all the reasons you should be sweet on our sweets here.

Do you use real apples in your apple pies?


Absolutely—real diced apples. The exact variety can vary from season to season, but we look for apples that are sweet and slightly tart. Read a full ingredient list for our Apple Pies.

What is your soft serve ice cream made of?

You'll find ingredients like milk, sugar and cream in our reduced-fat vanilla ice cream. Our vanilla soft serve—featured in our popular vanilla cone, McCafé® Shakes and McFlurry® desserts—is made with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Still curious? Learn more about our reduced fat vanilla ice cream.

Why don't you call your 'shakes,' 'milkshakes'?

Great question. Our shakes contain milk from our reduced-fat soft serve, which makes them thick and creamy. Dairy regulations actually vary from state to state on what can officially be called a 'milkshake.' We like to keep it simple and refer to them strictly as 'shakes.' Get the full list of ingredients for all of our shakes.
