Cultural preferences of different countries: The adaptation of McDonald's apple pie

September 11, 2023

It's special due to its blend of adzuki red bean paste and mochi sticky rice, creating a rich, chewy filling with traditional Japanese sweetness – perfect for moon-viewing.

The white mochi resembles the moon, and the dark red bean paste, the night sky. It's similar to taiyaki but with McDonald's crispy pie crust.

This McDonald's Japan dessert blends Japanese tradition with American pie. Every bite is indulgent, making you feel like you're savoring the moon.

The Tsukimi Pie costs 150 yen (around US$1.36), available all day and part of the morning menu before 10:30 a.m. It's on sale until mid-October. To ensure its return next year, we plan to enjoy plenty along with the decadent Rich Melty Burger!

For a brief period, individuals residing in or visiting Hawaii will have the opportunity to savor McDonald's latest dessert creation. This delectable statewide confection boasts a delightful combination of guava and a velvety vanilla crème coursing through its core, all encased within a pastry featuring a perfectly caramelized sugar crust.

Thai pineapple is renowned as some of the finest globally, and the pie was brimming with a delectable, subtly tangy, and sweet pineapple filling made from authentic, fresh pineapple chunks. I was genuinely amazed by the pie's exquisite flavor. It steered clear of artificial pineapple flavorings often encountered in lower-quality pastries and instead embraced the genuine, refreshing taste of real pineapple pieces.

The crust boasts a delightful crunchiness, setting the stage for what lies within—a vivid, almost fluorescent purple filling teeming with delectable taro-infused potatoes. The taro imparts a unique, non-cloying sweetness, distinct from the ordinary sweet potato, and its grainier texture contrasts with the smoothness of apple pie. Inside, the thick taro sauce introduces a delightful complexity of flavor without overwhelming sweetness, elevating the pie's overall taste profile. Moreover, the striking purple hue makes it a visually stunning and exceptionally rare culinary treat.

The exterior differed significantly from the usual McDonald's pie, adding an intriguing twist with its resemblance to pizza crust.
