I am a brand ambassador for Central Arkansas McDonalds. While I am being compensated for this post all thoughts and opinions are my own.
In my family we don’t do Christmas gifts for adults. I come from a large family and we just buy gifts for the kids. It’s just what works for us. So the only Christmas gifts I get are from my friends and we usually have a gift card exchange and one of the cards is always from McDonalds. Not gonna lie, that is usually the one I go for! There are just so many things I love to get from McDonalds whether I am on my way to work in the morning, treating myself to an afternoon snack, or I am just craving something yummy. You just can’t go wrong with an Arch Card.
So today I am here to tell you the ten things I would get with an Arch Card.
ONE Carmel Frappe. I think should just be a given. I am a frappe addict!! I have loved them since my Neenee (grandmother) introduced me to them. Now every time I am in Ohio we go for “frappy’s” at least once a day. It’s an addiction. But they are so so so so so darn good!!
Yes, that is a collage of frappe selfies. Should I be ashamed? Probably. Am I? Not one bit. HA!
TWO Pico Guacamole Grilled Chicken Chef Crafted Sandwich on an Artisan Bun. This is my favorite of the Chef Crafted sandwich combos, hands down! I get this sandwich at least once a week and I don’t feel guilty about it because it only has 360 calories and it fills me up!!
FYI- Enter here to vote on which Chef Crafted sandwich is your favorite, or if you haven’t had the chance to try them which one you think will be your favorite. Every entrant will receive a coupon for a free medium drink and fry with purchase just for entering. Then at the end of the sweeps one Grand Prize winner will be chosen to receive a year’s worth of sandwiches. It never hurts to enter right?? #ChooseYourOwn
THREE Fries. Is there anything in this world better than McDonalds fries? I don’t think so. There is just something about those fresh out of the fryer, salty goodness that just needs to be in my belly some days.
FOUR Sausage McGriddle. I think I have admitted on here that I am not much of a breakfast food fan but those McGriddles are out of this world!! Holy moly I could eat one for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and I totally can because breakfast is offered 24/7 now!! Three cheers for McGriddles!!
FIVE Vanilla Latte. When I am in a hot drink mood the Vanilla Latte is where it’s at!! I love that I never have to add anything to it and it’s not scalding hot when it comes out, meaning I can drink it immediately instead of having to wait on it to cool off. WIN!!
SIX Oreo McFlurry. Oh Mr. McFlurry how I do love you so. I really loved when the Reese’s McFlurry launched this summer but Oreo will always be my old standby. YUM!!
SEVEN Holiday Pie. I confess that I’m not a huge apple pie fan but have you even seen the description of the holiday pie? Let me share this bit of wonderfulness with you…
“Creamy smooth, vanilla custard nestled in a flaky, buttery crust glazed with sugar and topped with rainbow sprinkles.”
…it has RAINBOW SPRINKLES. Need I say more? No. Just go get one and you can thank me later.
EIGHT Double Cheeseburger. Let’s be real for a minute. Double Cheeseburgers are where it’s at. The price os on point, the taste is on point, the whole thing is on point. And I could get a lot of these with a gift card!!
NINE Southwest Salad. For when I’m trying to eat right. It also tastes pretty darn amazing!! I ove McD’s grilled chicken no matter is it’s on a salad or a bun!! YUM!!
TEN Diet Coke. I don’t drink too many cokes these days but when I do they are from McDonalds!! Did you know that the water and Coca-Cola syrup are pre-chilled before entering the fountain dispensers with the ratio of syrup set to allow for ice to melt? McD’s also keeps their fountain beverage system cold so your drink can always be at the peak of refreshing. McD’s straws are also slightly wider than a typical straw, so all that Coke taste can hit all your tastebuds. Whoa. Mind = blown.
So there you have it folks, the ten things if would get if I were gifted with an Arch Card from McDonalds this holiday season.
What would you get if you received an Arch Card as a gift??
Gift Cards from McDonalds is a great idea to give to teachers! I want to try that holiday pie I didn’t know they had that.
I just love this post! I think I need to try a Holiday Pie!

Oh, Arch Card, I love you! I love McDonald’s and I always end up with quite a few Arch Cards for Christmas.
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
I would just buy as many fries as I could get HAHA! Oh, and an apple pie because they are the bomb!
We recently moved and have been visiting McDonalds a lot more than we use to.
I recently tried their newest Chicken Sandwich. It was ok, but I wouldn’t get it again. My usual meal is the Filet of Fish.
And yes, they have really expanded their Coffee Bar with all kinds of drinks. I am guessing to compete with Starbucks.
I didn’t realize that McDonald was making a holiday menu!! That Vanilla latte sounds delicious!!
Liz Mays says
I’d definitely use an Arch card for some treats too. The holiday pie and the Oreo McFlurry would be on the top of my list.
Erica Brooks says
I’d definitely go for an Oreo McFlurry. They’re a delicious treat. My kids would go for the fries.
Holy! That’s a holiday pie?! THERE ARE SPRINKLES?! I need this to get to Canada….
Ann Bacciaglia says
These are all great things to buy with your Arch card. I will have to try a Frappe.
That Southwest salad looks tasty! I can’t wait to order a burger from McDonald’s ! It’s been a while since my last visit
I would go for an Arch Card, too, because of all this yumminess. McDonald’s is my go to store when I need a fast meal.
Nancy @ Whispered Inspirations says
WOW I have never seen a pie like that. Looks tempting! Great choices by the way!
Ok, that holiday pie looks really good! I didn’t know they had that. I love all of the McDonald’s coffees!
I love the McFlurrys. Those are my favorite. That and the fries. That holiday pie looks really good. I haven’t seen any of those around here. I’ll have to check to see if we have any.
Annemarie LeBlanc says
I am a meat lover so I would definitely go for the Sausage McGriddle! It has been a staple order for me everytime I am at McDonalds. This Christmas season, I’d want to try their holiday pie too.
Mimi "MimiCuteLips" Green says
I love McDonald’s fries, sweet tea and milkshake. The kids love everything. lol
Bonnie @wemake7 says
Arch cards are so awesome. I would get a lot of different things. I love their food.
I have yet to see the holiday pie but those spinkles are just ADORABLE! I will take all the frappes please and thank you! ;)
Up Run for Life says
You pointed out a ton of my favorite things from Mcdonalds. I love the caramel frappe, m&m mcflurry, double cheese burger, fruit and maple oatmeal, diet dr pepper, and the southwest salad is the best. :)
Sadly, there isn’t much options for me since I mostly eat vegan. I do love their french fries, though.
Kelly Hutchinson says
I had no idea you could get a gift card from McDonalds. I would get a coffee and an egg mcmuffin every day for breakfast!
Amanda || Growing Up Madison says
I’m not a huge fan of McD but I do however love their iced coffee so if I ever get a card, that’s definitely what I’m going to get.
I had no idea McDonalds had lattes! That sounds like something I would like to get with an Arch card.
I’ll get Oreo McFlurry! Yum! It’s my fave at McDonald’s. I’ll get me some coffee too. Now I’m craving for those. Wish I have an Arch card now.
Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly says
I swear I am the only blogger on the planet not fueled by coffee. I actually don’t drink coffee or tea. When I need a warm up from cold NYC winter I have hot chocolate. My fave sammie from McD’s is the sirloin third pound burger with mushrooms and swiss and have them add some bacon to it! :-)
I always hate admitting it, but I do love me some mc Donald’s!!!! Now you have me craving there fries!
SusieQTpies (Susan B) says
I would get coffee, coffee, and more coffee if I had an Arch Card! Love your selfies, too! I would also consider sharing it with my teens so they could have a meal out! lol
Renee @ Gettin' Fit Fab says
I would so get all those Frappe’s! I would totes gets them, but I don’t have a McDonald’s in my area that’s on my way to work. Boo! I love the collage it’s really the best.
I would probably spend most of the card on chicken nuggets and French fries. They have the best French fries of any fast food restaurant. Chick-Fil-A has slightly better chicken nuggets, but they are sometimes bad about giving me ridiculously small pieces. The nuggets at McDonald’s are always a good size.
