McDonald’s brings back fried pies, McCafé Social Hour BOGO

McDonald's fried apple pieBe still my pre-myocardial infarction heart…fried pies have returned to Southern California McDonald’s locations!

The ubiquitous burger chain swapped out its fried pies for a more health-conscious baked version back in 1992 (although I remember getting one at the downtown Riverside location years after that, and apparently, they’ve continually been available at the Lakewood Boulevard location in Downey), but now they’re back.

And will be through the end of the year.

The chain is currently offering apple and cherry fried pies.

The chain has also brought back its McCafé Social Hour from 2 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Through May 10, during McCafé Social Hour, guests can purchase one McCafé beverage and receive another of equal or lesser value for free at SoCal locations.

The chain is also introducing bundt cakes and petite pastries.

The bundt cakes are currently available in cinnamon coffee cake and double chocolate flavors, while cinnamon cream cheese and raspberry petite pastries are currently available. Suggested pricing for the new offerings are $1.99.

Today (April 10) and tomorrow (April 11), the chain is offering samples of the new bundt cakes from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

McDonald’s restaurants can be found throughout the Inland Empire.
