CHICAGO (CBS Local/CBS Chicago) — The long-rumored debut of McDonald’s Donut Sticks was confirmed on Monday, and McDonald’s said they’ll be available Feb. 20 for a limited time.

The sugary morning breakfast snack will be available in half-dozen or full-dozen orders and will only be sold during breakfast time, the chain said.

Whisperings that McDonald’s might come out with the new menu item started last month, and a spokesperson for McDonald’s confirmed Donut Sticks were tested at restaurant locations in California, Florida, Oklahoma and Washington last fall.

But the company had remained tight-lipped about the rumors, until Monday, when McDonald’s confirmed Donut Sticks would launch at U.S. restaurants next Wednesday.
