McDonald’s menu items are always coming and going. Much like the McDonald’s all-day breakfast, there are more things being shown the door at the Golden Arches. There’s a rumor that three McDonald’s bakery items will be joining the discontinued menu on July 15. These include cinnamon rolls, apple fritters, and blueberry muffins. So they’re basically wiping out the McCafe bakery line.

Cinnamon Rolls, Apple Fritters, and Blueberry Muffins are being discontinued on July 15.

According to a McDonald’s representative, the McDonald’s McCafe bakery line is phasing out at all locations. This includes cinnamon rolls (priced at $2.69 each), apple fritters (regularly $2.39), and blueberry muffins (usually $2.29). If rumors online are true, McDonald’s will stop receiving shipments of the baked goods on July 15.

However, that means you’ll still be able to enjoy the bakery treats until your location runs out of those items.

Several McDonald’s breakfast items have already been discontinued — including bagels and parfaits.

The McCafe items aren’t the only McDonald’s breakfast items to get the ax. In the past few years, they have slowly given the old heave-ho to a large number of their breakfast menu.

Here are a few of the McDonald’s breakfast itemswe hope to see again one day:

  • Bagels (discontinued in 2022)
  • Parfait (discontinued in 2020)
  • Cinnamon Melts (discontinued around 2016 – 2020, depending on your store)
  • Eggs Benedict McMuffin (discontinued around 2016)
  • Fruit and Walnut Salad (discontinued in 2013)


McDonald’s salads are no longer on the menu.

In 2020, McDonald’s got rid of several different menu items including salads. McDonald’s salads arrived on the menu in 1987, enduring several iterations. But in 2020, there were only two salads you could get: Bacon Ranch Salad with Crispy Chicken and the Southwest Salad with Artisan Chicken.

McDonald’s says they have no plans to bring salads back.


Remember these discontinued McDonald’s burgers and sandwiches?

McDonald’s has tried many different variations of their burgers and sandwiches throughout the years. However only a few of have staying power. Many of them were discontinued due to the lack of popularity. That said, you might still be able to find a few at select McDonald’s locations.

Here are the discontinued McDonald’s burgers and sandwiches put out to pasture:

  • The Angus Burger (discontinued in 2013)
  • Big n’ Tasty Burger (discontinued in 2011)
