Apple Pie

Mc Donald's style.

Taken for the benefit of my American friends who may not have seen the Aussie Mc Donald's apple pie (which from personal experience is nothing like the US version).

    Interesting.... 'cause the one I had in California in '99 definitely looked like a slice of baked apple pie. So maybe it's just a Californian thing ?

    That looks like what is served up here in Canada too.

    Must be. That's definitely a McDonalds pie, except ours have a red box... :)

    I couldnt tell you what they look like in the Uk as I never buy them, looks nothing like apple pie though ! more like strudel !! was it nice ?

    Ours used to have a red box Donna, many many moons ago, but were rebranded when the Mc Café's opened.

    Thanks Melissa. I'm really thinking it was a Californian thing now, as I don't think I bought McD's (or at least without apple pies) anywhere else in the US on that trip.

    I hate to say it Helen, but yes, it was nice. The deep fried outer shell is crispy and mildly caramalised, the filling is hot, sweet and apple flavoured (supposedly it is actually apple, but who knows). ;-)

    Well, they are as nice as you can get at Mickey-Ds :(
    Dave seems to have a taste for them ;)

    There's no accounting for some people's taste. :-P

    Looks the same as the last time I bought one at a McDs too.
    Filled with liquid-magma filling which is guaranteed to burn the roof off your mouth.

    hehehehe yep that's the stuff. Luckily my mate James who went to the US at the same time I did also recalls the baked apple pies we got. Maybe it was just a promotion while we were there or maybe it was a California / Nevada / Texas thing.

    Ahh yes.. had many a burnt roof eating those things! The strangest tasting McD's Ive had was in Japan.. different kind of flavour....
  • David de Groot said:
    Yep, dangerous when hot, although I've noticed in recent years they're rarely hot enough to burn ones mouth anymore.
    I've not been to Japan but McD's isn't somewhere I'd think of going if I was there ;-)
