McDonald’s Apple Pie is one of the oldest items on the chain’s menu and for good reason. It’s delicious and only has 240 calories per serving. Not to mention cheap.
Some people have even called it the finest food on earth. Since its debut, the delicacy has been praised and widely regarded as one of the best desserts at McDonald’s. And it also may be one of the best-selling products on the entire menu, and without doubt, the people’s choice.
Actually, it’s probably the restaurant’s first dessert offering. The delicacy has been on the menu for over 50 years, according to several people familiar with the item’s history.
So I’m probably right in thinking the Apple Pie was McDonald’s first dessert.
Last year, the company changed the Apple Pie’s recipe, so the nutritional value of the product also changed, but in a good way. Now the pie has fewer calories and is free from artificial preservatives.
But even though the old recipe had more calories, it had fewer carbs, less sugar, and more protein. The updated recipe has fewer grams of fat, less sodium, and zero grams of trans fat. Sounds much healthier.
The Apple Pie is my dad’s favorite dessert option at McDonald’s. So it’s important for me to know everything about the product.
It also evokes a lot of nostalgia. Don’t you agree?
