Remember the McDonalds Chocolate Pie that was released in South Korea last year, that sent everybody into a frenzy? This year, McDonalds Korea is back again with a vengeance and this time with their latest dessert pie, the Raspberry Cream Cheese Pie! Here’s a picture of the pic in its full, oozing glory.
Although the combination of cream cheese and raspberry jam might rub some people off the wrong way, the unexpected pairing, warmly enveloped between two sheets of chocolate pie crust, is a delight for the taste buds. The tanginess of the raspberry and the creaminess from the cream cheese is like a match made in heaven.
Although this humble pie has received its fair share of criticism from the public (e.g. the crust isn’t chocolate-y enough, the raspberry tastes too artificial, etc) since its release on 19 November, it doesn’t stop Koreans from heading out in this freezing cold weather to buy themselves a piece of this ₩1,000 pie (~S$1.20)!
In other news, McDonalds Korea has also released a new line of Happy Meal toys for their tiny customers! From now till the end of December, take home your very own Super Mario toy with a purchase of any Happy Meal!
There are a total of 8 different designs for you to collect. The first round of toys will be given out from now till 29 November, and the second round of toys will be given from 30 November till mid-December. So what are you waiting for, quickly ask someone you know in Korea to get them for you before they all run out!
PS. A Happy Meal in Korea starts from ₩3,500 (~S$4.20)!
