So I was invited by the lovely Miss DJ Lady Sha to the Porter Novelli’s launch party for the new McCafe Frappe.  Aka McDonald’s version of the Starbucks Frappuccino. 

Now being that I had not seen the inside of a McDonald’s in a really really…really long time (at least 8 years).. I was a bit skeptic as I threw on my high-waisted skinnies, my clogs and generously applied vast  amounts of red lipstick.  
As a mostly healthy, organic and at times vegan eater, I was at a tug of war with my three selves ( I’m a Gemini/Cancer cusp baby) about even walking through the entrance of this event.  Which was affectionately located in a big tent in a McDonald’s parking lot in Echo Park.  Kinda Cute!
Never the less, I grabbed my camera and my clutch and headed out the door.  As I drove up and spotted the tent..I had a little talk with my sometimes snobby self and said just do it!
and I am so glad I did..
Can I tell you how GOOD the McDonald’s McCafe Frappe thingy is.  IT IS SOOOOOOO GOOD!  So good in fact that in order to properly and truthfully blog about it I had to try both flavors…several times…..All in the name of research of course! 
I can’t tell you how many calories are in this thing (probably don’t want to know), or how much sugar you will be sucking up with every sip (definitely don’t want to know)..but I can tell you that if you are out and about and you spot a McDonald’s.. I recommend you taking a trip through that drive through at least once in your life to indulge in one.  You will not be disappointed!

    It was my pleasure to have your presence in that cozy tent… made my night that much better. Oh & that frappe, only 4% coffee, The rest, goodness.
    Thanks for coming darling & catching all those dope pics of our fly colleagues, & the cute ones of my godson Ja-Ra, & pseudo-nephew Michael (on the ground with dog). Oh yes… all the troops came out for Mickey D's.
