McDonald’s breakfast menu gets a makeover as the fast food chain added three new Blueberry McGriddles at over 100 locations in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area for a limited-time test run.

Offering a fruity twist on a breakfast favorite, the new McGriddle sandwiches being tested are the Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Blueberry McGriddle; Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Blueberry McGriddle; and the Sausage Blueberry McGriddle.

The fast food giant’s move to bring Blueberry McGriddles came after customers stated that they were looking for a more craveable breakfast option on the go.

Carol Martino, Culinary Innovation Spokesperson for McDonald’s USA, said, “The new breakfast items are the perfect selection to get your day started. The Blueberry McGriddles breakfast sandwich will satisfy both the sweet and savory senses.”

“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,” Martino added.

Carlos Mateos Jr, local McDonald’s franchise owner-operator, stated, “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.”
