As I mentioned in a previous post, this summer is the “Summer of Chocolate” at McDonald’s. Last week, I reviewed the Chocolate Dipped Cone which is available for a limited time. Up next, the S’mores Pie.
I was very excited to try this dessert with my family. The ice cream cone was fun, but I’ve never had a pie that was supposed to taste like a s’more. Plus, it’s been a long time since I’ve had an actual s’more, so this test came at the perfect time.
The first thing I noticed about the pie was the date on the box. Now, I don’t usually buy pies from McDonald’s, so maybe this is a standard procedure. Still, it was nice to know that I was getting something hot and fresh.
The pie itself is the perfect size for a dessert. It’s not tiny and leaves you wanting more, and it’s not so big that you can’t eat it all. I sometimes like having just a few bites of a sweet treat right after a meal, and this pie was great after Spaghetti Night in our house!
The chocolate and marshmallow fillings taste delicious together, and I loved the graham cracker crust. It’s softer than a real graham cracker, but the three flavors combined made me think about roasting marshmallows and constructing s’mores like I used to do as a kid.
Sawyer really liked the s’mores pie. He immediately reached for it when James pulled it out of the box. He had his half gone in just a few minutes. It wasn’t as messy as ice cream and other desserts he gets, so that was a nice plus. The inside is far from thin, but it isn’t so thick that the pie is gushing out everywhere.
My family really liked the s’mores pie, and would recommend it for those that want just a little bit of a chocolate dessert. It’s only available for the summer though, so make sure you don’t wait too long to try it!
