McDonald's fans thrilled over return of nostalgic item from childhood

McDonald's has announced the return of an iconic item that you may remember from your childhood.

The global fast-food giant recently teased on social media that its retro Coca-Cola glasses would be one of the prizes included in its new Winning Sips promotion.

The can-shaped glasses were a household cupboard staple for many of us growing up, which is why it is exciting to see the return of the iconic product, even if it just part of a promotion.

The food chain shared a snap of the new colourful Cola glasses and captioned its tweet: "Something iconic returns....Question is, will your sip be a Winning Sip? Coming March 29th."

Shoppers were quick to flock to the comments, with one saying: "They’re not a want but a need."

A second excitedly wrote: "Right, I better get sipping those drinks then!"

While a third exclaimed: "I love the can shaped ones, love that these glasses are coming back!"

A fourth joked: "My Dad threw away the last lot we had and I still haven't forgiven him x."

Officially kicking off next week on Wednesday, March 29, the Winning Sips promotion is a peel-to-win game that is similar to the iconic McDonald's Monopoly that usually runs later in the year.

Only available to those who are over 18, the new Monopoly-like game will see millions of instant win and app prizes up for grabs over a four week period, including the iconic Cola glasses.

Other prizes that players can snap up include £10,000 cash, menu favourites and limited-edition merch including bucket hats and towels.

To take part in the new game, all you have to do is purchase a medium or large soft drink or milkshake and peel back the sticker to reveal either a Instant Win prize or App play game piece.

For those who win an App Play game piece, you will need to download the McDonald's app and scan your code to be in with the chance of winning.

Anyone who does peel to play will automatically be entered into a prize draw for the opportunity to receive one of ten cash prizes of a whopping £10,000.

While the new promotion is bound to be popular with fans, it is the retro cola glasses that has got everyone excited after McDonald's teased them on Twitter.

The McDonald's Winning Sips promotion will be available from Wednesday, March 29 until Tuesday, April 25. You can view the full list of prizes on the McDonald's page.
