Taste Test: McDonald’s New Sweet Potato Milkshake

We Try McDonald’s Purple Sweet Potato Milkshake

Autumn in Japan is an exciting time for all things sweet potato! Sweet Potato and Purple Potato candy, pastries, chips, drinks, and hot roasting potato stands along the streets of Shibuya.

McDonald’s released a new seasonal Purple Sweet Potato McShake and as a toast to the new season, we had to give it a try! Kanpai! Cheers!

Swirls of purple potato and vanilla cream design the top. It’s thick and milky and everything we were hoping for it to be! It has a strong purple potato flavor but in cold and creamy form. What more could we ask for? Oh yeah, and it is only 120 yen ($1.07) for a Small and 200 yen ($1.78) for a Medium.

We definitely recommend trying it during this limited time if you’re in Japan. If not, we’re thinking some purple sweet potato snacks topped on ice cream could be pretty tasty!
