In addition to the standard apple pie, McDonald's in Hong Kong also serves a red bean pie. I had to try it. More

American Classics: How to Make a Homemade "Shamrock Shake"

American Classics Alexandra Penfold 4 comments

Though the version at McDonald's is a bit of a dissapointment, something about Shamrock Shakes captivate me—perhaps I'm just sucker for marketing and/or alliteration—which is why I wanted to make a Shamrock Shake that would live up to the minty goodness I had built up in my mind. More

We Try the Holiday Mint McFlurry from McDonald's

Todd Brock 2 comments

The red and green bits dotting the top of my McDonald's Holiday Mint McFlurry weren't immediately identifiable to me, but they were not the candy cane shrapnel I had assumed I would be seeing. I can't tell you what the hell these things are. That's not to say I don't like them. More

Chain Reaction: McDonald's Rolo McFlurry

Gracie Dulik 15 comments

We missed out on writing about this delectable, candy-filled concoction when it was first introduced last summer, so when McDonald's decided to bring back the limited edition flavor, we jumped at the chance to try it. More

Chain Reaction: New Pies from McDonald's and Popeyes

Gracie Dulik 7 comments

Just in time for summer, McDonald's introduced a S'mores Pie, and Louisiana-style fried chicken chain Popeyes has followed suit with a Southern Peach Pie. We gave both a try at Serious Eats Headquarters. More

So You Miss Deep Fried McDonald's Apple Pies?

J. Kenji López-Alt 30 comments

In 1992, the unthinkable happened: McDonald's replaced their beloved fried apple pies with the vastly inferior, modern baked version. Pale and doughy, they simply don't compare with the apple pies of my youth. What to do? Just fry'em ourselves. More

Fast-food junkies, proud or ashamed, we've got some good news for you: Mickey D's is currently offering a limited time only variation on its venerable Apple Pie—this one is stuffed with Strawberries & Creme. More

6 Off-Menu Dessert Mashups at McDonald's

Erin Jackson 19 comments

Years ago, a friend introduced me to a mildly hilarious unofficial off-menu dessert at McDonald's: an apple pie and a vanilla ice cream cone, smashed up in a cup together to make the best McFlurry McDonald's doesn't know about. This concoction doesn't have an official name (yet) but it got me thinking: if it was that easy to improve upon the pie, there must be other undiscovered treasures hiding within plain sight. The only logical next move was to find out. More

BraveTart: Make Your Own McDonald's-Style Eggnog Shake

BraveTart Bravetart 4 comments

Maybe it's the PTSD (that's Post Thanksgiving Sobriety Disinclination) talking, but any dessert that can accommodate a few ounces bourbon seems like the very definition of Happy Holidays to me. Not that McDonald's Egg Nog shake is alcoholic. Just that, well, it should be. More

Fast Food Dessert Battle: Wendy's Twisted Frosty vs. McFlurry vs. BK Sundae Shake

John M. Edwards 21 comments

The big three fast food chains—McDonald's, Wendy's, and Burger King—are all offering some type of blended dessert. At McDonald's, of course it's the McFlurry, a soft-serve ice cream with toppings mixed in. Burger King has introduced the BK Sundae Shake, a choice of shake—chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry—with Oreo topping, whipped cream, and a dash of hot fudge. And not to be outdone, Wendy's is offering a Frosty Redux called the Twisted Frosty—a chocolate or vanilla Frosty base with toppings "twisted" in. Which is the sweetest? More
