While I don't doubt that the McPumpkin pie is shiatty, this line in TFA:

"There's no texture; the filling is just pureed stuff. "

Makes me wonder if the writer has ever had a pumpkin pie

McDonald's is like eating rat on a stick. The rat on a stick costs $0.10, the ketchup $0.90. If anyone has a problem with paying $1.00 for rat on a stick with ketchup, you ask 'em if they've ever eaten rat on a stick without ketchup. Even if they have, most would be inclined to admit it's an occasional vice, and emphatically not an everyday meal.

How do you even go cheap to ruin a pumpkin pie?

Pumpkin costs like nothing.

They aren't new, I had these numerous times last year and maybe even before that. They're not not anything sophisticated but if you like their cherry and apple pies, and you like pumpkin pie, it's a nice change to eat a couple of these during the season. Yeah it's pretty basic, but they're not horrible. I'd be willing to get another one next time I'm there, they're usually 2 for $1.

I see I'm not the first one to have that thought.  That's been the traditional pumpkin pie for generations.

Pumpkin is the worst pie of all possible pies.
And it's still a 9/10
Pie.
 
2013-11-02 04:07:23 AM
I have a hard time believing a  $1 pastry (and at some McD's 2 for $1) pastry isn't one of the best you can buy.  I would expect it to be WAY better than those foo foo cupcakes that cost $5 each.  I think that guy must be lying.

The VERY BEST pumpkin pie is made at MY HOUSE!!!!  I seriously LOVE good pumpkin pie.  According to my mother, my first solid food as an infant was pumpkin pie!  YAY MOM!!!!  So I consider myself not only an afficianodo on really good pumpkin pie, but I'm also a pretty damned cook as well!  ;)

I like McDonald's Apple Pies. There. I said it.
 
2013-11-02 04:26:40 AM
"Now, exactly what kind of flavor these pies are bursting with I'm not sure, but it sure as hell ain't pumpkin. The pies barely taste like anything distinct, forgoing America's favorite seasonal gourd for a plain, generic sweetness that's unassuming, unoffending, but also unappealing."

Pumpkin tastes like nothing distinct, until you add a shiat ton of sugar and "pumpkin pie spice."

That's kinda the point of pumpkin. It's a gourd. Gourds are bland.

They also have a goupy, blah texture.

So, is the complaint that this McDonald's offering doesn't have enough artificial flavoring?

I mean, I know it's edgy to hate on McDonald's, but really. If you can make coffee taste like "pumpkin pie," that "pumpkin pie" taste is bullshiat.

Blame goes for sausage. I remember my dear sainted mother, a vegetarian, bought some sausage seasoning. She put it on her popcorn. Damned if the popcorn didn't taste just like breakfast sausage.

So, you gotta wonder what sausage tastes like without that seasoning.

Tastes like crap, I figure.

I've lived in China. I'm fairly certain that i have eaten rat on a stick for ten cents.

No ketchup, just a shiat ton of miscellaneous, make everything taste the same, street BBQ spice.

AND I ENJOYED IT.

Ketchup is "just a shiat ton of miscellaneous."  Hence Heinz 57 - they lost count of how many things they swept off the floor to make it, and stopped at 57 ;)

Hmm, makes sense that it would. I made some recently with cinnamon and sugar in the rub, because I figured, hey, pork chops taste great with cinnamon sugar applesauce. It worked out well.

I gotta try some with pumpkin pie spice now.

If you go to McD's expecting a "pumpkin pie" to taste like anything more than crust with a dab of pumpkin-flavored filling...then I want some of what you're smoking, because you left reality a long long time ago, dude.

That's a fair point. The point of ketchup is the point of all spices. It's there to cover up bad meat.

I still don't understand hot dog purists. No, you have to cover up this strong, weird hot dog flavor with mustard! Ketchup is right out!

Fast food is so full of preservatives / fillers you should just look at it like you're getting a jump on your own embalming!  With fast food in your diet your impending death might be closer than you realize!  Double Bonus, right?!

I'm pretty picky.

I had a McDonald's pumpkin pie when on a road trip a couple of years ago. It was not bland. I was surprised at how spicy it was-there was nutmeg coming out the wazoo. Too much actually. It wasn't bad at all, though, overall.

McDonald's pies are actually pretty good. And you get two for a $1!

Starbucks (which I like) is still struggling to come out with a pastry that tastes as fresh as something you can get at McDonald's (I know the answer to their problem: Starbucks doesn't have kitchens). I tried a new Starbucks "La Boulange" pastry. It wasn't bad at all. But it wasn't fresh. They reheated it. I've been going to Starbucks long enough to know that every couple of years they revamp their pastry line-up to be "fresh" and "real." I keep telling them the problem is not their recipes. It's the fact that they ship in croissants from god knows where. Even when you bake a croissant fresh, it's gone stale by the afternoon.

Anyhow, as a vegetarian who very rarely eats at McDonald's, I've got to defend them this time. I can drive through (meaning not get out of my car) and get two, fresh, hot, good-tasting pies that I can eat with my bare hands for $1?

I'm not one of those patriots or people who gets excited about much, but I just don't think you can complain about those pies. Those are one of the good things in life.

I...I kind of want to try their pumpkin pie now. I can't explain it. I know it's tasteless dreck, but it's like hearing about something you'v never heard of before--you inexplicably want to get it out of your head, so you do it.

Had a similar problem with hard pretzels last weekend.

McDonald's had some sort of custard pie-like thing last year. It was a hell of a lot better than their apple pies. And I love me some apple pies.

I'd go right now, except I just came from McDs.

Took them fifteen minutes to figure out how to give me a breakfast sandwich, fries, and a coffee.

Late night crew, what can you do?

So, I'll have to try the pie later.

Who would want to live forever?  I hardly can tolerate the people around me on any given day!  I don't avoid fast food because i'm a douchy douche foodie, I avoid fast food because I care about what I'm eating and where it comes from and because I have functional taste buds.  If you can honestly say that a fast food mcquickie meal tastes good then you've never had a good meal.

Hey, I prefer mustard! I love it. I eat my fries with mustard. Sometimes with mayo and mustard.

Spicy brown, chicken mcnugget hot, even French's yellow. Any mustard will do.

But I also understand that it exists to have a strong, concealing flavor. No different than ketchup.

I avoid fast food late at night. If I'm jonesing for a food fix at 2am, I prefer the local IHOP. If you go in Friday through Sunday at 2am, you get dinner and a show (aka, the hooker and drunk parade). My friends and I will sit in the back and just laugh our asses off. And since we tip well, the waitresses love us and sometimes slip us extra stuff--extra pancakes, ice cream, stuff like that.

McDonald's, though? Not after 11pm or before 6am.

Just about every meal I've ever had was good. Some better than others, sure, but I don't hate food. I love food.

I pity those that can't even enjoy 90% of food because its "not good enough." Only for a second, though. Then I laugh at their sad lives.

I worked at Mickey Ds back in high school, and was a vegetarian then, too. I'm not sure if it was true or not, but they told us that there was so much grease in the air that we shouldn't wear watches because the grease from the air would get into them and muck things up.

Anyhow, after every shift we were allowed to buy one meal at cost (33% of the price). I would get one of the meals with the burger on the side, eat some of the sandwich without the burger, have the fries and drink, and brought the burger home to my dog.

Once the manager found out about this, she was quite upset. They started a new policy that any employee meal had to be entirely consumed on the premises. I guess it may have been insulting that I fed it to my dog. Probably didn't make me a great vegetarian, either.

I had some friends who worked at Carls Jr. They said they had something just called "steak sauce" that made anything you put it on taste like steak. (they experimented)

But for some reason that struck them as gross. I'm thinking great way to get cheap steak. Pour it on your oatmeal. Pour it on rice crackers. Pour it on cheap bread. Mmmm steak.  Pour it on shaved ice. mmm. steak granita/granite.

Then there was the kid in the dorms who got a whole bowl of ranch dressing with lunch/dinner. Dipped his sammiches in it. dipped his meat entree in it.  poured it over his rice.

I want McD's to bring back that steak bagel...mmmm. greeezy ass flap of meat on a bagel with melty cheese.  Even better because you know it's damaging you permanently every time you eat it.

I'm not one of those patriots or people who gets excited about much, but I just don't think you can complain about those pies. Those are one of the good things in life.

You realize, a a vegetarian, that everything a McDonald's is covers in bacon and beef grease, right...? Even the salads have it.

/Bacon grease makes everything delicious

I worked at Mickey Ds back in high school, and was a vegetarian then, too. I'm not sure if it was true or not, but they told us that there was so much grease in the air that we shouldn't wear watches because the grease from the air would get into them and muck things up.

Anyhow, after every shift we were allowed to buy one meal at cost (33% of the price). I would get one of the meals with the burger on the side, eat some of the sandwich without the burger, have the fries and drink, and brought the burger home to my dog.

Once the manager found out about this, she was quite upset. They started a new policy that any employee meal had to be entirely consumed on the premises. I guess it may have been insulting that I fed it to my dog. Probably didn't make me a great vegetarian, either.


It doesn't make you a bad vegetarian. It make your dog a bad vegetarian.

Vegetarians get an undeserved bad rap. I don't get it--you guys just choose not to eat meat. As long as you don't proselytise about it and make a huge deal, go on with your bad self.

Just remember that some of us like eating a big, juicy steak.

It's no like being gay.

RidersOfLohan: I had some friends who worked at Carls Jr. They said they had something just called "steak sauce" that made anything you put it on taste like steak. (they experimented)

But for some reason that struck them as gross. I'm thinking great way to get cheap steak. Pour it on your oatmeal. Pour it on rice crackers. Pour it on cheap bread. Mmmm steak.  Pour it on shaved ice. mmm. steak granita/granite.

Then there was the kid in the dorms who got a whole bowl of ranch dressing with lunch/dinner. Dipped his sammiches in it. dipped his meat entree in it.  poured it over his rice.

I want McD's to bring back that steak bagel...mmmm. greeezy ass flap of meat on a bagel with melty cheese.  Even better because you know it's damaging you permanently every time you eat it.


I agree with everything you said there.
