McDonald’s Restaurants Testing Blueberry McGriddles® Breakfast Sandwich in D.C. Metro

July 15, 2019

Washington D.C. – July 15, 2019 - A new breakfast sandwich is currently being tested at more than 100 participating McDonald’s restaurants exclusively across the Washington D.C. metropolitan area for a limited time. We’re making mornings a little better by offering a fruity twist on a breakfast favorite, the new Blueberry McGriddles®.

“The Blueberry McGriddles® breakfast sandwich will satisfy both the sweet and savory senses,” said Culinary Innovation Spokesperson for McDonald’s USA, Carol Martino. “The flavors from the real blueberries balanced with the sweet taste of maple, reminds me of the blueberry pancakes my mother used to make for us growing up. Imagine that combined with your choice of sizzling breakfast sausage or thick cut bacon nestled under a creamy slice of American cheese and fluffy egg. It’s everything you love about breakfast in one sandwich.”

Blueberry McGriddles® sandwiches being tested include:

  • Sausage, egg and cheese Blueberry McGriddles® breakfast sandwich
  • Bacon, egg, and cheese Blueberry McGriddles® breakfast sandwich
  • Sausage Blueberry McGriddles® breakfast sandwich

McDonald’s has been serving breakfast sandwiches since the invention of the iconic Egg McMuffin in 1971 and McGriddles® were introduced to restaurants in 2003. Our customers have told us they are looking for a more craveable breakfast option on the go, so we listened. McDonald’s is always looking for ways to innovate, and the Blueberry McGriddles® breakfast sandwich is the newest way to indulge in sweet and savory brunch flavors while sticking to your weekday morning routine.

“With the testing of Blueberry McGriddles®, we are building a better McDonald’s by fulfilling our customers’ desires for a little indulgence at breakfast. We’re excited for our local customers to have the first chance and opportunity to test the limited time only Blueberry McGriddles® sandwich and to hearing our customers’ response to this sweet and savory breakfast sandwich,” said Carlos Mateos Jr., local McDonald’s franchise owner operator.
