McD Tropical Pie

I started off with the taro pie in 2014. Then it was the blueberry pie, followed by the spinach pie and lychee pie in 2015. Just recently it was the pineapple pie and now when I noticed a new pie on the menu, I just could not help myself knowing full well I may not like it, I proceeded to buy it.

This time McD has redesigned the packaging. Now there is a perforated strip in the middle of the packaging for us to easily tear the packaging into half. I forgot to take a photo of it and straightaway break the pie into two and ate one part. The other half I gave to my spouse. As can be seen from the photo above, the pastry is a bit white (doughy) on the inside which I like.

This Tropical Pie has fillings made of Red Dragon Fruit (the purplish pink colour), Pineapple (I could not detect any such taste) and Nata De Coco Bits (I did come across very few pieces of these bits). Overall this is a pleasant pie to eat as there is no overpowering taste, just a mildly sweet taste.

  1. What an interesting pie invented by Mc D's. Look like a dessert pie more.

  3. So far I only had the apple pie...a long long time ago. Nice, best when it was hot.

    1. Wah you are so familiar with their promotional items. No I didn't try the pie with sundae though I did saw it on the advert.

  7. I have yet to try any pies from McD... no small kids now so seldom go inside, not like last time when they were young, I used to go to KFC to get the mashed potatoes for them... Yes, I think I could only eat half of that pie only... one is definitely too much for me. :)

    1. Half is just right but no need to go for this specifically.

  8. Hmm...the inside again looks very different from the promotional ad. The pies I've tried (banana and apple) are way too sweet for my liking but since you said this is mildly sweet, perhaps I can try.

    1. I think may still be too sweet for you since like RG says the fillings are mostly gooey syrup.

  9. Well, you satisfied your curiosity and at least it was pleasant to eat.

  10. My older boy likes the Apple pie. He tried the spinach pie and didn't like it. I think apple pie is no more in production? For me, it is too sweet ( apple pie).

    1. I didn't like the spinach pie too. The apple pie is a regular on the menu so it is always there.

    1. Not all of them at once. At one time, McD would have the regular apple pie and one special flavour pie on promotion.

    1. I don't quite like that taro pie. The promotion for it has ended so it is no longer available.

  16. Oh oh. This is so right up my alley. :)

  17. Hmm, with the picture comparison, looks like the promote picture has much different than the actual one.
