If your mouth has been watering in anticipation of a free sample of McDonald's Real Fruit Smoothie, which

the company was planning to offer July 22 through 24, you'll have to suffer without for a little while longer. The company announced late yesterday that it is delaying, or perhaps even canceling, the promotion to make sure it has adequate supplies to meet the anticipated demand.

"The McCafé Real Fruit Smoothies are an absolute hit with our customers and we're experiencing unprecedented demand for this delicious new choice on our menu," said Neil Golden, Chief Marketing Officer, McDonald's USA in a press release.
