McDonald’s Pumpkin & Creme Pie is back for 2022, according to Brand Eating. The beloved fall treat has made its seasonal return, at least in some locations. In 2021, one Instagram user,¬†@junkfoodonthego, posted that they got the pie in Los Angeles.

The pie is coated in sugar, baked turnover-style, and filled with pumpkin pie filling in one half and creme filling in the other half. It’s kind of like being able to hold a perfect slice of Thanksgiving dessert in a perfect little pocket of pie crust. As usual, the pie isn’t available at all McDonald’s locations and won’t be around for long. With McDonald’s keeping mum on official return locations for the menu item, for now, it will require a bit of your own sleuthing on the McDonald’s app to see if locations near you carry the coveted treat. Depending on your location, the price may vary. In LA, you can get one for $1.19 and two for $1.89.

Can’t find them? At least there are some other sweet options on the menu. Try the ’80s throwback cheese danish, which was also just reintroduced to the menu.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
