For a long time, McDonalds dominated the fast food breakfast game, but as more and more competitors improve their morning offerings, McDonalds has struggled to keep up. Now, the fast food chain is looking to get back to their dominate ways, adding three new items to their breakfast menu.

On Wednesday, McDonalds unveiled their new apple fritter, blueberry muffin and cinnamon roll as part of the McCafe menu. It is the first time McDonalds has added new breakfast items to the menu in nearly a decade. To give customers a sample of the new offerings, the fast food chain is offering any of the new items free with a purchase of a hot or iced coffee on orders placed through its app.

The promotion will run from November 3 to November 9, and can be used by customers once per day at any time. With breakfast being the most important meal of the day, there is plenty of competition for customers in the morning hours. Hopefully there new items don't lead to another fast food war.
