“Trendy nibbles,” indeed.
In some of its German locations, McDonalds has begun selling cupcakes in four flavors, each of which is named after a Manhattan neighborhood. Soho is Vanilla, Chelsea is Chocolate, the East Village is Cappuccino, and Central Park is Strawberry.
The New York tie-in was to make them more familiar to German customers, who have seen the “hip little cakes” on dubbed re-runs of “Sex and the City” but not so much in their own cities.
Of the Chelsea flavor, the McDonald’s website suggests eating them by a harbor or lake so you can “enjoy your personal Chelsea feeling.”
