REVIEW: McDonald’s Cookies & Creme Pie

McDonald’s Cookies & Creme Pie seems to be saweet (is that how the youngsters spell it these days?). Not solely does it look tasty, however with an virtually toothpaste tube’s price of white creme filling, it additionally looks like it will make my candy tooth faucet out earlier than I received even midway by the pie. Effectively, my candy tooth is completely happy to report that whereas the black and white deal with seems to be cloying, it’s surprisingly not as sugary as a Double Stuf Oreo Cookie.

Earlier than opening the field, the aroma that radiated out of it dropped at thoughts any Pop-Tart with a chocolate crust, just like the Scorching Fudge Sundae and Cookies & Creme flavors. It was an indication that this deal with won’t be as candy as I believed. The crust’s taste additionally made me consider Pop-Tarts with its delicate darkish cocoa style. However there are various ranges of chocolatiness, with the crust’s seams having a taste that stands out a bit extra.

However the factor about Pop-Tarts is that whereas the crust isn’t flavorful, the filling greater than makes up for it. Sadly, the creme’s style on this pie is as delicate because the crust. There have been hints of vanilla, and at occasions I might’ve sworn I tasted a slight tang (my spouse didn’t style any), however the filling wasn’t near being as candy as Oreo creme and even McDonald’s tender serve. The mixed mildness of the crust and creme made for a barely disappointing deal with. I suppose I anticipated extra of a sugary punch due to how different McDonald’s pies are, just like the tasty Guava & Creme Pie I attempted a couple of months in the past. Nonetheless, my spouse mentioned she preferred that it wasn’t too candy, which reminded her of Japanese confections.

The creme was stiffer than I anticipated, making it cleaner to eat — no oozing with the one I chomped by. Adorning the crust had been flavorless white sprinkles that supplied a slight sweet crunch once I chewed on the tender, darkish crust and softer, vibrant white filling.

So what might’ve made this higher? Possibly the filling ought to’ve been a mixture of chocolate and white creme, very like the Guava & Creme Pie was a mixture of a guava-flavored gel and creme. Or perhaps the white creme might’ve been barely sweeter.

McDonald’s Cookies & Creme Pie was okay, however I wouldn’t repurchase it. Its taste and sweetness don’t make me yearn for one more, in contrast to an Oreo cookie or a cookies & cream ice cream/frozen dairy dessert, which I generally have self-control points with. If you need a tastier and extra satisfying cookies and creme expertise from McDonald’s, simply get an Oreo McFlurry.
