McDonald's S'mores Pie

rsz_1mcdonalds-smores-pie.jpgThe word "s'more" may evoke various images in a person's mind. Roasting marshmallows over a roaring campfire. Breaking apart honey-scented graham crackers into perfect squares. Watching chocolate melt as you admire your carefully-constructed creation before sinking your teeth into bliss. Fast food giant McDonald's seeks to sell their own variation of the renowned dessert in the form of a baked pie. A couple of months ago, I reviewed the Strawberry & Crème pie and appreciated it as a delightful alternative to the traditional baked apple pie McDonald's is known for. However, I came away from the S'mores Pie feeling unimpressed. The crust was still great- flaky and not too sweet- but it didn't exude much of a graham cracker vibe to me. The almost jelly-like consistency of the chocolate and marshmallow fillings was a bit of a turnoff and the flavors weren't very strong at all. I was expecting both fillings to be much richer and not so bland. I doubt I'd ever be willing to try this again, especially considering how simple it is to make authentic s'mores. The pies may be dirt cheap, but I'd say it's worth spending the few extra bucks to experience the real thing.
