McDonald’s New Apple Pie Recipe

September 20, 2018

McDonald’s changed its iconic apple pie recipe — and customers are split on if it is a healthy change for the better or a horrific mistake.

Last week, the fast-food giant announced it was debuting a new recipe for its apple pie with less sugar and a simplified ingredients list. “Our new freshly baked Apple pie recipe is in line with other positive changes we have made,” Tiffany Briggs, a McDonald’s spokesperson, said in a statement. “We removed, for example, artificial preservatives from our Chicken McNuggets and switched to real butter in our breakfast sandwiches because those changes matter to our guests.” The pies now have a new “lattice crust” on top . . . so instead of being totally covered with dough, now it criss-crosses on top. And the pies also have new ingredients, including more cinnamon and less sugar.

However, not every McDonald’s customer has been loving the new pie. As the revamped dessert has hit menus, many customers have taken to social media to complain about the changes.
