McDonald’s Has Changed A Popular Menu Item and Customers Aren’t Pleased
Say it isn't so. A favorite McDonald's item tastes a lot different these days and the customers are throwing a fit over it.
According to WQAD, the chain recently re-formulated their apple pies to make the treat healthier. McDonald's is now using 100 percent American grown apples, along with fewer (and may we speculate, less junk-filled) ingredients. They're also baking the pies instead of frying, which I can imagine gives the dessert a different texture.
The recipe change is not going over well on social media, with public outcry coming from Twitter and Facebook. Apparently, better quality apples do not equal a better pie.
Just a few of the gems I spotted on social media:
"PLEASE return the 1970's era ORIGINAL apple pie."
"Pies are not health food! Bring back the original fried pie!"
And, perhaps the most dramatic statement:
"My entire childhood is gone."
Here's hoping the pie devotees can come around to the new look and taste.
