S’mores Pie: 3
S’mores Sundae (my own creation): 4
Recommendation/Tasty Twist Idea: Make a S’mores McFlurry or sundae and add nuts if you wish
So I finally tried it! I had tweeted (Twitter: followmefoodie) about this about a week ago after driving by a McDonald’s advertising “S’mores Pie 2 for $1.39”. Since then I’ve been meaning to try it. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it too…mix it with ice cream!
I usually do my apple pie McFlurry. I’ll get them to blend an apple pie up in my ice cream. They might look at you like “what the heck?”…but just ask them and they’ll do it. It melts fast, so you need to eat it fast, but that’s no challenge for me. I decided to make a S’mores sundae rather than a McFlurry because I wanted to try the S’mores alone too.
One of the best S’mores I’ve had was at Earls over the summer. Surprised? I was! I usually would never order S’mores because it’s such an easy dessert to make at home and most of the time I find them too sweet. However I’m so glad I tried the one at Earls. It was a special feature dessert for summer ’09 so too bad it’s not offered anymore. It was a gourmet S’more with this homemade graham cracker cookie/cake and it came with chocolate and vanilla gelato. I introduced 4 friends to it and none of them were real fans of S’mores (for the same reason I’m not)…and ALL of them liked it.
On the table:
S’mores Pie – 3/6
**S’mores Sundae (my own creation): 4/6
- A standard McDonald’s pie, but filled with chocolate and marshmallow
- 2 for $1.39
- You need to take it as it is…it’s McDonalds, it’s 2 for $1.39 – it does the job, even if it doesn’t your loss really isn’t that bad…
- The marshmallow is more like a marshmallow cream
- The chocolate is almost like chocolate sauce, kind of reminds me of their chocolate sundae sauce
- Chocolate isn’t very thick and obviously it’s not high quality…it’s McDonald’s, what do you expect right?
- Together it’s all quite ooey gooey
- I think it worked, it was sweet, but that’s a given
- Eat it with ice cream, it offsets the sweetness
This is a great post! lol! I will definitely have to try it…i was at McD's yesterday (first time in months) and noticed the pie, but was hesitant to try it.
I still have yet to try your apple pie mcflurry idea but I like it! So glad you did a review of the s'mores pie because I wasn't sure whether to try it or not. I have personally, never had s'mores, ever. It's weird, I don't know why. I guess the opportunity was never there. So to this day, I still remain s'more-less haha. But this looks good enough to try, given that my expectations aren't overly ridiculous, but of course, why would they be? It is McDonald's after all. lol, great review and that sundae looks good! I'll probably try it that way because it looks really sweet on its own already.
Yeah a lot of people are hesitant to try this pie for some reason…it's really just marshmallow cream, chocolate syrup like sauce in a standard McDonald's pie crust. With ice cream almost ANYTHING is good lol!
Nicole – OMG I can't beleive you've never tried S'mores!!!! Really?!? Ok well now I'm nervous…because if you're a S'mores virgin then make sure you don't let this one represent the scope of ALL S'mores…because they are usually better than this.
Thanks for posting ladies!
LOL you are hilarious! and so thoughtful! Thanks for looking out for your fellow foodie patrons! hahaha ok I will make sure to lower my expectations significantly and not use McDonald's S'mores as the standard to which all other S'mores are compared to, ok? 🙂
Yum that looks really good! I can't say I've seen this in LA but I would like to try it if I ever come across one. BTW have you tried the deep-fried apple pie? McDonald's has been phasing them out in place of baked pies (not as good).
Wow do you guys NOT have S'more Pie in the States? We actually haven't been introduced to the deep-fried apple pie! Baked is never as good as fried is it? I'm sure you guys have some wicked trailer selling deep fried pies though.
