I first spied a McDonald's S'mores Pie as I passed a local McDonald's. Loving S'mores and trying strange new promotional items I made a U-turn and ordered one. Unfortunately, that particular location was sold out for the rest of the promotion.
I'd actually forgotten about it, until a week later we ended up at McDonald's for dinner. It wasn't our original plan, so don't judge! We'd walked over to a local restaurant to try it out, to find that it closed early. We hemmed and hawed about what to do until we finally decided to walk about 2 blocks to McDonald's. I ordered my meal, and as I was about to hand over the cash I inquired about the pies (they hadn't been on the menu nor were there any posters). The cashier paused, went to the back, and brought me 2 pies. One pie was for me and my DH to share, and the other was to give to my sister (she loves S'mores).
We ate our meals, brought the pie home, and split it down the center:
It looked promising. Something about the symmetry of S'mores goodness down the center of the pie made it look like it'd be delicious.
It wasn't delicious. It wasn't terrible either. The graham cracker crust didn't quite taste like one, and the chocolate tasted like pudding. The marshmallow was a bit more airy/fluffy than a typical marshmallow. It seems like it was missing a flavor, a dash of cinnamon perhaps? And it's fairly sweet. I was thankful that I'd split mine because it'd be too much for me to eat on my own.
Would I get one next summer? Probably not. I'd opt for S'mores pop tarts. Or of course, the real thing.
