Review: McDonald's - New Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

Looks like McDonald's is rolling out their new Frozen Strawberry Lemonade for the summer if my local McDonald's is any indication. The drink features a lemonade ice slush with a strawberry flavored syrup swirled in.

Prices start at $1.69 for a 16-ounce small to $1.99 for a 20-ounce medium and $2.29 for a 24-ounce large.

The look of the drink with the syrup swirl in reminds me a bit of a sunset but also of a Big Stick popsicle. There's a fair amount of liquid in the cup with the ice slush floating atop.
Flavor-wise, I definitely got the aftertaste of concentrate; if you're looking for the flavor of freshly-squeezed, this is not it. The lemonade portion tasted like half-frozen Minute Maid lemonade.

The strawberry syrup was sweet but a bit weak in the strawberry flavor department. Overall, this was just "meh" for me; nine times out of ten, I'd go for the slightly pricier Strawberry Banana Smoothie instead. It's a nice look though.

For a limited-time (until June 15th), McDonald's has a $1 off coupon for any size Frozen Strawberry Lemonade, FrappĂ©, or Smoothie that's printable online here.
