McDonald’s Is Launching a Line of Bottled Coffee Drinks

  McDonald’s Is Launching a Line of Bottled Coffee Drinks Coming soon to a retail shelf near you Look out, Starbucks: McDonald’s is now taking aim at the coffee giant’s bottled coffee beverage business, with plans to launch its own line of ready-to-drink McCafe products in 2018, the Chicago Tribune reports. Looking awfully reminiscent of Starbucks’ omnipresent line of bottled Frappuccino drinks, the McCafe Frappé drinks will come in vanilla, caramel, and mocha flavors and will be sold at retail stores nationwide. The retail launch is “part of a plan to increase awareness of its McCafe line of frappes, lattes and other espresso-based drinks,” the Tribune says. McDonald’s has long fought to compete with Starbucks in the coffee arena, last year announcing plans to upgrade its McCafe offerings by rolling out fancy espresso machines and sustainably-sourced coffee beans to stores. The chain also plans to expand its menu of espresso-based drinks later this year, adding a caramel macchiato and an Americano to the lineup that already includes lattes and mochas. The McCafe line certainly faces plenty of competition in the bottled coffee universe: Beyond Starbucks, other big coffee brands like Caribou and Dunkin’ Donuts have also launched their own ready-to-drink beverages recently, crowding shelves that also share space with more niche brands like Blue Bottle and High Brew.

Norwegian Cruise Line went to extreme efforts to allow passengers to get home ahead of Hurricane Irma, but some travelers panicked when they were left in the evacuation zone.

Two of the company’s ships, the Norwegian Escape and the Norwegian Sky, were brought back to port in Miami before the scheduled end of the cruise before Irma’s expected landfall in Florida. The choice was made to allow passengers from Florida time to return to their homes to prepare for the storm and to give others onboard the chance to return home if they wanted to avoid the storm, a company spokeswoman told MarketWatch.

Current projections indicate that Florida will begin seeing tropical storm-force winds beginning Saturday morning, with hurricane conditions coming later that evening. Should these predictions hold up, Irma could make landfall in Florida early Sunday morning as a dangerous Category 4 storm and continue traveling north across the state.

Roughly 4,000 remaining passengers who could not return home were brought aboard the larger of the two ships, the 4,266-passenger Escape, which was taken back out to sea to leave the region for the duration of the storm. “We are being forthcoming with guests that we’re not certain where or when we will be able to return back to port,” a Norwegian Cruise Line spokeswoman said.

Cruise operators’ choice to end voyages early and return passengers to Miami caused confusion, however. The Miami Herald reported Thursday that some passengers have been stranded in South Florida just days before the storm is expected to hit. Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.), questioned the move on Twitter, and county officials said they were coordinating with cruise lines to ensure that the companies helped passengers in the area find shelter. Meanwhile, family members of passengers who were left in Miami also took to social media seeking help for their loved ones.
