The internet is split thanks to McDonald’s Singapore’s recent announcement.
Frappé without Whipped Cream
Turns out the giant fast-casual food chain has decided to remove whipped cream from their popular Frappé beverages starting this week at all outlets with McCafé in Singapore.
It also appears that they won’t even be offering it as an option and according to reports online, the decision was made as customers were requesting to have the Frappé drinks without whipped cream.
There has been a lot of feedback (over 300 comments on the Facebook post) regarding the decision and it seems opinions are split with some applauding the move while others are appalled by it.
Technically, it’s still a Frappé since the term originates from Greece and was used to describe a cold coffee drink made from coffee shaken with ice.
This customer wonders if people really go to McDonald’s for guilt-free food.
Another netizen questions if it’s in fact a cost-cutting move instead.
This comment asking the correct question.
Is Whipped Cream really bad?
According to the internet, while whipped cream can be a tasty and indulgent treat, it is high in calories and fat. A typical serving of whipped cream contains about 50 calories and 5 grams of fat.
McDonald’s Singapore has also changed all the photos of their Frappé drinks and they no longer contain that familiar cloud of whipped cream topping.
While the photo in the announcement only shows three different Frappé, McDonald’s has a total of six Frappé drinks to choose from.
- Mocha Chips Frappé
- Caramel Frappé
- Green Tea Frappé
- Himalayan Tea Frappé
- Double Chocolate Frappé
- Latte Frappé
Here are the updated photos of the drinks.

For those who absolutely must have whipped cream on their Frappé drinks, you might want to consider bringing along a whipped cream aerosol spray (make sure it’s Halal-certified though) so you can enjoy it the way it was before.
