Deep fried apple pies

If you are one of those people who misses the deep fried apple pies from McDonald's, Harveys has brought back their version!
I just happened to notice them at the Harvey's in the Home Depot in Leaside and was thrilled.
I know that Full Tummy is a fan so I wanted to get the word out.
Also, I called the customer service line to tell them how thrilled I was to see them back on their menu. Hopefully they will keep these on the menu for good.
Thanks for the tip! I used to love these as a kid, but haven't been to Harvey's in ages. Guess this is a good time to revisit.
Doesn`t Burger King carry those pies also? A & W does as well, except it is covered with cinnamon sugar.
Diamond Pizza on Danforth has them, I think they're Mcain

this is in a different realm from the fast food ones and would likely require a special order... but i would strongly suggest getting rachelle's from beast apple pie. it's a refined but hits all the important points of the mcd's deep fried pie and with a really thick and luscious dulce de leche. i had it while she was still at the wine bar and think of it fondly. will have to see what i can do about getting it again...
Yep they;'re back at Harveys and .50 cents if you add it to a combo. But hasn't A&W been doing these with cinnamon on the outside since forever? Sonny's in Brampton too
LovelyAsia, I had Hubby bring one home for me today. Pretty good replacement, though not quite the same. I remember McD's being more flaky with more bubbles on the surface of the pastry. Still, it satisfies the craving. Here's hoping someone comes out with a cherry pie!! Btw, thank you so much for alerting us.
Will also have to try the A&W version.
re: Full tummy
Your welcome Full tummy! I know what you mean, they are not quite the McD's pie but close...
I have had 2 of them at Harvey's since my original sighting, and I noticed that one time they were kept in the deep fryer longer and had more bubbles on the surface and being well done made the crust tastier... the other was a little lighter in colour, so I guess if they leave them in the minimum amount of time the crust does not get crispy enough, but the filling is always hot lava!
I agree a deep fried cherry pie would be wonderful!
Thanks to the other posters who mentioned other versions, but for me, I am trying to find as close a substitute to McD's original pies.
in fact, I used to go to Pizza Hut for their mini version which was also dusted with cinnamon sugar but it was never quite the same... and I believe Pizza Pizza sells the McCain apple pies but they always tasted awful... at least at Harvey's the only other thing going in the oil is fries, not chicken wings!
