McDonald’s Flavors of Asia: Bringing the best of both worlds in a tasty comeback

The epic flavors of Japan and Korea are finally back for a limited time 

The main thing that crossovers have taught us is that they are always exciting, out of the ordinary, but most of all, rare. It’s not always that we get to see our favorite music artists partner for an epic duet; and it surely never gets old when we witness crossovers in superhero movies.

Now, McDonald’s is jumping into that crossover world with the most satisfying and delectable collaboration of flavors and cultures possible – with the Flavors of Asia, bringing you the best of both worlds of Japanese and Korean flavors!

Flavors of Asia also actually serves as a comeback – fans of Japanese cuisine will remember McDonald’s Flavors of Japan, served all the way back in 2019; while McDonald’s served a treat once more just last year with the Taste of Korea. But to make things oh-so-satisfying, this exciting crossover is here to let everyone enjoy the best of both worlds.

Mom’s got your back: Iya Villania treats kids with fam fave Red Ribbon Triple Chocolate Roll

The saying that moms always know best has always been true for generations. Whatever the family needs—especially the kids—moms always give those that pass their strictest and most stringent standards.

Iya Villana-Arellano, TV host and mom of three (soon to be four!), is no different. She gives her all in all her pursuits, but no matter how busy her schedule gets, she always makes sure that her family only gets the best. Whenever Primo, Leon or Alana crave for that chocolate-y goodness, Iya most definitely chooses the Red Ribbon Triple Chocolate Roll.

A sweet and chocolate-y bonding moment is the highlight of the latest digital video of Red Ribbon’s Triple Chocolate Roll, where Iya makes sure that her family gets only the best experience by saving the day with her supermom flexes, speed and intuition and of course treating the family with the Red Ribbon Triple Chocolate Roll.
