If you aren’t an American over the age of thirty, you probably won’t appreciate this so much; but for those who are, check this out:
Look at that.
Yes, that’s right. A McDonald’s Fried Apple Pie.
A little closer?
Sure…..here ya go:
Yeah. It has been a long time, hasn’t it? But you remember how they tasted, don’t you? Much better than the baked pies they serve up now, wasn’t it?
Well, not to make this sound like it’s all good news…they shrunk them! The pie you are salivating over is only about 2/3 the size it used to be. But it only costs Php20…that’s roughly 50 cents.
For all of you Americans under 30: If you haven’t been to a McDonald’s outside the US to experience one of these, you simply won’t understand. Go. Do it now. Hurry. Then you can leave a comment here thanking me for introducing this treat to you. Of course, at the same time you’ll be cursing me for the very same thing, because now you’ll be craving one….just like those over 30 have been for over 15 years now. Yes, it’s been that long!
You could always move.
The McDonald’s Fried Apple Pie Locator site http://www.ccytsao.com/friedapplepie.htm (Don’t you appreciate all the research I go through for you?) can direct you to your nearest McDonald’s serving up the beloved pastry. There aren’t many locations in the US as you will see from the list, but if you miss them enough, maybe this will become your dining guide on your next vacation in the US or abroad.
And no. I did not move to the Philippines for McDonald’s pies! Let’s just get that cleared-up right now….
