The Land of Milk & Honey, But Not Marshmallows & Chocolate

I made a shocking discovery this weekend on Twitter, a discovery that conveniently continues last week's theme of s'mores and babies. Ok, maybe not babies. But the discovery could well make babies cry. American babies, that is. And it all revolves around what comes from this magical box.



Or what doesn't, depending on where you live.



No, that's not apple in my McDonald's pie, and it's not cherry either. That's marshmallow and chocolate.

Oh ya, that's a s'more. The only thing that could make these better would be if they were deep fried like back in the day. Remember those? I just had a full-body happy shudder just thinking about them. It's sad to think of all the people that will never know the joy of the deep fried apple pies.

*wipes away tear*

Anyway, write your congressman or congress woman. Write to your senator. Hell, write President Obama, my American friends, because you can only get these in Canada. And that's just wrong. Heck, that's un-American.

*burp*

    Love the deep fried apple pies. Maybe we could get them to do it again and slip a slice of bacon in there. I'll start writing.

  5. I don't think we have these in the East, or I've never heard of them, oh wait it's new, I just looked in that Pile of coupons from the mail and there it is, the S'mores Pie. I guess it will be a while. I'd rather have the apple.

  12. I do cry when I reminisce about the good old days of deep fried fruit pies. The smores pie looks good, but waaayyyyyy sweet. I would be happy just to have deep fried back.

  13. Oh, the fried apple pie. How I miss those. That was one of only 2 things I would eat from McD's in the US. The other being their ice cream cones. An apple pie AND an ice cream cone? OMG! Heavenly.
    I have to be honest and say that the s'more pie doesn't look all that good to me. It looks too sweet to me.
    The McD's here (Germany) has a McCafe with the most amazing desserts. Seriously. They don't make up for the old school FRIED apple pie, but still, they kick that baked apple pie's ass.

  14. That is so wrong.

    Down here in Texas we deep fry everthing; pickles, candy bars, and yes pie!

  15. Why don't you just rub our nose in it next time, eh?

  16. I don't go to McDonalds, EVER. Now I see the error of my ways - when will they arrive in the Northeast?

  17. It's been a few years since I've been down there but I do believe they still have fried pies in the Southeast (you know: Alabama, Georgia and such). However, it's a localized phenomenon; a local company would make them and distribute them daily to the corner convenience store or the like. Those are the best. Fresh and fried.

  18. htat was not nice to show to a pregnant lady ... no i'm craving one ... how far away is canada?

  19. The closest thing to a McDonald's fried apple pie is the Taco Bell Apple Empanada (deep fried love). A little bit of heaven from the past.

  20. That looks SO good! I'm jealous!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I feel so deprived. Like I need it (not). But I want it. So bad.

    ReplyDelete
  22. What? That fattest country in the world does not have s'mores pies at McDs? That IS un-American.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Just couldn't let that one alone could you?! You're mean.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I miss those fried pies. And french fries deep fried in lard. Mmmm... those were the days.

    ReplyDelete
  25. What??? Only in Canada??? That's a crime.

  26. Over here in Hawaii, the McDee's pies are filled with haupia (creamy coconut pudding).

  27. Taunting others with these treats is irresponsible.

    I made smores pancakes for my boys Sun. but used ice cream for filler because I didn't have any fluff. I will probably be nominated for mother of the year.

  29. For your efforts, I give you this as a reward.

  30. And those poor Americans don't get to enjoy Kinder surprise eggs, either. It's sad...really sad.

  33. In Scotland they deep fry Mars bars. I thought that was disgusting but those S'mores look much worse.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'd be jealous but my McDonald's pies are filled with bourbon. Okay. I do that myself. But still.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I can see the headlines now - Canadian border overrun by choco-craving Americans!

    ReplyDelete
  36. No… you should write to Ray Crock founder of McDonald's (wait… he's dead).

    ReplyDelete
  37. You mentioned the deep fried apple pies and my mouth watered! Those were so good. I wish they'd bring those back.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Proof is in the pie. All good things come from the Great White North.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh yummy, those smores pies are good.

  40. You had to go and give away yet another of our secrets!!!! Next you will tell them we don't get snow in the winter. Geesh!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Some of the reasons for living in Canada are becoming more clear. I would only accept them in the US if the come complete with the French writing on the side as well.

    ReplyDelete
  42. That is just wrong. I am texting Barak right now.

    Else we might have to invade to get them.

    ReplyDelete
  43. naked snow runner, that isnt fair at all

    i might have just licked my screen
    but i'm not telling

    ReplyDelete
  44. sniff...you had to remind me when McDonald's FRIED their apple pies. Those were the days. Best things.

    btw, just read justsomethoughts comment above and think he may have eaten more than an apple pie with his McDonald's meal. Just saying...

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh. My. God. I so want one of those! Are you sure it wasn't deep fried? I thought they fried all their pies.

    And for Otter Thomas... in the US they'd be written in Spanish :(

    OK, I might have to come visit, just to get one of those pies (or a case)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am very jealous that you have these. Damn you Canadians to hell!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Pure, heavenly, chocolately, marshmellowy goodness from the gods! I wonder if we have them here at the NY McD's, I will be finding out asap thanks to those pictures you posted!

    ReplyDelete
  48. S'mores pies? I think you guys stole those from us! We ALWAYS have smores when we go camping. It's as American as apple pie.

    I'm not writing to my congressman. I'm writing to MickeyD! Traitors!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I just shorted out my keyboard...too much drool.

    As an unabashed fan of new products, especially ones that are unhealthy, I am in awe of this. I will be stalking my neighborhood Mickey D's.

    All we got was the freakin' McRib.

  50. Deep fried apple pie. Yummmm. That's why my arteries are clogged now, but I wouldn't pass up a single one. Let ME wipe a tear for us Americans who don't get the s'more pie. You're right . . . it IS so un-American.

Come on, sailor. I love you long time.
