So, for the non-snobs out there, I had to share this since I loved these when I was a kid. These fried, scary pies, with their molten lava hot apple center and their grease-stained box. They discontinued them a few years back and tho I rarely eat at McD's, I've longed for them on occasion...a very specific craving. In Europe and Mexico you can find them, but not here.
So to my surprise, I stopped at the Downey McDonalds (the oldest one in the country) to grab a quick diet coke. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed that the photo of their apple pie was the fried, bubbly kind. I asked the kid (more like shrieked) behind the counter and he shrugged and said "yeah, they're fried."
So in case any of you have a soft spot for these - the Downey shop sells 'em! I hope I'm not the only one excited about this.
