McDonald’s has a new dessert item.

McDonald’s S’pore releasing white chocolate strawberry cream pie on August 29, 2019

And we faithfully went to the store to buy it.

Here’s the White Choc Strawberry Cream Pie *coughs in Hardware Zone*:

Perhaps the most important thing to note is that its crust differs from that of the usual apple pie’s.

Instead of a crisp, deep-fried exterior, you get a flakey pastry:

Which is not a bad thing, as far as personal taste goes.

However, what most people might find to be a massive downside is the fact that fillings are rather scant.

You’ll reach it in about three to four bites in.

Which is quite a stretch from its promotional photos:

But it wasn’t excessively sweet, if that’s one of your concerns.

The white chocolate strawberry tasted vaguely familiar, although we couldn’t quite put a finger on it.

On the spectrum of authenticity/artificiality, it was somewhere between Häagen-Dazs’ strawberry ice cream and strawberry Pocky (leaning more towards the latter, to be honest).

Overall a decent iteration of the dessert pie, if you’re the sort who likes pastry over filling.

How much it costs: S$1.50

How much we’d pay for it: S$1.20
