McDonald’s has brought back their Strawberry and Creme Pie for a limited time. The Strawberry and Creme Pie is filled with half strawberry and half vanilla flavored creme filling inside a famous McDonald’s pie crust. I picked up one of the limited-time pies for $1.00.
How Does it Taste?
Like all McDonald’s Pies, they come in a sort of “pie pocket”. The pie crust itself is crispy without being too hard. I thought it struck a nice balance of textures. The pie was firm, but also gave way easy enough when bitten into. It also appeared that the top of the pie was covered in sugar crystals
The filling in the Strawberry and Creme Pie consists of two separate strips of filling. One half is a strawberry kind of goop, and the other is what appears to be a cream cheese filling. McDonald’s uses this configuration for several other pies, including their recent Smore’s Pie.
The strawberry side of the Strawberry and Creme Pie contains an all too familiar goop of sweet strawberry filling. A word of warning, these pies can be hot, and when they are this is the part of the pie that will make you utter terrible things out of your mouth while you can’t taste anything for the rest of the day. Fortunately, by the time I got home it had cooled off plenty.
The vanilla creme side of the pie tasted more like cream cheese filling than vanilla filling. I liked the creme side over the strawberry side, and I would actually like to try an entire pie with just the creme filling. When combined with the strawberry filling, the flavor unsurprisingly resembled that of a strawberry cheesecake. It did lean a little more towards the strawberry side though. The combination of all the flavors of the pie worked out pretty well.
McDonald’s Strawberry and Creme Pie is a fair little pie that provides a nice balance of strawberry and creme. The strawberry filling was a little on the sweet side, but it balances out with the rest of the pie. For a quick, warm treat, I’d say it’s hard to beat something like this for only $1. I wasn’t blown away, but it did hit the spot.
Pros: Tastes vaguely like a strawberry cheesecake, creme filling was yummy, satisfaction for $1
Cons: Strawberry filling was a bit sweet, easy way to add 300 calories to your McMeal
