McDonald's Holiday Pie Is Coming Back

McDonald's has stated that the pie will only be available in a few places for a brief period of time while supplies remain.

"Creamy smooth, vanilla custard nestled in a flaky, buttery crust coated with sugar and topped with rainbow sprinkles," is how McDonald's describes the pie.

The reintroduction of the 260-calorie pie may make it easier for customers to say goodbye to the cherished McRib on November 20.

The first appearance of the limited-time sweet was in 1999, and it is customarily added to the menu during the winter season.

When McDonald's introduced a blueberry pie for a limited period, it cost $1.29, however keep in mind that pricing vary by area.

McDonald's has yet to clarify the specific locales or whether the holiday pie would eventually be available nationwide.

The holiday pie isn't the only seasonal item on the McDonald's menu. On November 21, the Smokey BLT Quarter Pounder and Oreo Fudge McFlurry were introduced.

The burger is a twist on the conventional quarter-pounder, but with Applewood smoked bacon, Roma tomatoes, and smoky sauce.

And the McFlurry is an Oreo McFlurry with a hot fudge twist. McDonald's recommends pairing the two for "cuffing season."

Using the McDonald's app is one way to save. Customers get free medium fries every Friday and a free Big Mac when they download the app.
