I tried and compared the limited-time "hot strawberry pie" and the standard "hot apple pie" sold by McDonald's! Which is "adventure" or "stable"?
■ Hot strawberry pieThe "Hot Strawberry Pie" for a limited time is a pie filled with a generous amount of strawberry filling containing strawberry pulp. The cut strawberry fruit is boiled down and mixed, and you can enjoy the sweetness and moderate acidity. The price is 120 yen (tax included, same below), which is 20 yen higher than hot apple pie.
The package is designed so that the red color of the strawberry filling shines on a black background that expresses the taste of "adventure". The puff pastry is also slightly dyed red.
When you grab it, it's crispy! A puff pastry that makes a pleasant noise and crumbles. The filling is thick and thick, as if you were eating rich strawberry jam as it is. You can enjoy the rich sweetness of strawberries.
■ Hot apple pie"Hot apple pie" has been sold since the establishment of McDonald's Japan and has been popular for its stable taste for about half a century. It features a generous amount of apple filling and crispy puff pastry, and is also popular because it is reasonably priced at 100 yen each.
A familiar green regular package that expresses the "stable" taste. The fragrant puff pastry has plenty of smooth apple filling! It also contains dice-cut apple pulp, and you can enjoy a crispy texture from time to time. This is stable and delicious!
There may be individual differences, but I wonder if the "hot apple pie" has a stronger filling feel. The "hot strawberry pie" had a tightly packed filling and had a fluffy texture. Will the impression change if I warm it up a little with a toaster before eating?
McDonald's "Hot Strawberry Pie" and "Hot Apple Pie" are easy to buy for 220 yen even if you put them together. If you are interested, why don't you try and compare them?
