|The boring box|
|Ontario HST = 13%, not sure why I was charged only 5% tax|
At first, it had the same bland, non-item specific box as older promotional pies that I've had at Canadian McDonald's and it still disappointed me. The pie was served quite hot, and generally that's a good sign, except I feel the strawberry pie would have been better off chilled. The strawberry filling was nearly identical to a low-quality strawberry jam (jelly) that you would get in a jar to spread on a sandwich or possibly some toast. So if you can imagine how that would taste if you threw the jar in the microwave before spreading it on your sandwich, you can imagine the taste of this pie. Though I usually prefer the baked pies over the fried one, the strawberry filling probably would have fared better with a crispy fried crust. Disappointed over the price increase, but very happy I didn't get sucked into buying two to decrease the unit price.

I know a few years back McDonald's in Canada had a Peach Pie, but when I was there everytime I tried to order it, they were sold out, so it must have been pretty good. If anyone tried that, leave a comment below, or start a conversation on our Facebook page.
