Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

We hate when our favorite fast food spots remove items from the menu that we love and McDonald’s is no different in this regard. That’s what makes this story such a happy one.

The Oreo Frappe was a beloved menu item, until it vanished eight years ago. Now, it is making its triumphant return and fans could not be more thrilled, according to the Fast Food Post.

If you are anything like us, you can understand exactly where they are coming from on this one. Of course, there are disclaimers that need to be provided here. As the Fast Food Post reports, the Oreo Frappe is not going to be making a permanent return. It will only be available for a limited time. Anyone who is looking to grab one needs to make sure that they are acting quickly.

The Oreo Frappe is only going to be added back to the menu during the spring and summer months. Fortunately, we are providing you with plenty of advance warning. It will be back on the menu as of May 17th. Select locations are going to have the Frappe available, so be sure to ask around in your area. We would drive out of our way for one, though.

Some people refer to these beverages as “dessert in a cup” and we could not agree more. Even the description that McDonald’s has to offer is a pretty awesome one. “A refreshing sweet treat made from mocha, a hint of coffee and Oreo cookie pieces. Blended with ice then hand topped with whipped cream and a few more Oreo cookie pieces for good measure,” the product description reads.

This is the first time that the drink is going to be available after being discontinued back in 2015. According to the Fast Food Post, a general manager who spoke about the return said some of the locations that are participating are going to get “a whole Oreo cookie, and it will even come with a little blue spoon so you can scoop it like ice cream.”

The anticipation levels are already high in our house and if we have to drive to the next town over for one of these bad boys? That’s just what we will do.
