McDonald's fried apple pie [Moved from L.A. board]

So, for the non-snobs out there, I had to share this since I loved these when I was a kid. These fried, scary pies, with their molten lava hot apple center and their grease-stained box. They discontinued them a few years back and tho I rarely eat at McD's, I've longed for them on occasion...a very specific craving. In Europe and Mexico you can find them, but not here.

So to my surprise, I stopped at the Downey McDonalds (the oldest one in the country) to grab a quick diet coke. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed that the photo of their apple pie was the fried, bubbly kind. I asked the kid (more like shrieked) behind the counter and he shrugged and said "yeah, they're fried."

So in case any of you have a soft spot for these - the Downey shop sells 'em! I hope I'm not the only one excited about this.

  1. For several years now, Kentucky Fried Chicken has been selling what appears to be the same fried apple pie that McDonalds used to sell - delicious!

      Subway has started carrying them as well. (Confirmed sightings at SFO Terminal 3 "Baggage Claim", and in Western Chicago area.

          Not on the locator list, but the McD's inside the Fox Hills mall carries fried apple pie too.

          It's a guilty indulgence...hehehe

            Sad to say, it looks like that web page has not been updated since 2003 unless I'm looking at it wrong. I love those apple pies and am going to start looking in the Wal-Marts around here. All it says for Missouri is various locations. Guess it is up to me to find those locations!!

          2. They have them at Popeye's. Sometimes 2 for $1.
