McDonald's Sweet Potato Pie

Mc Donald's Sweet Potato Pie - Hong Kong
I am a huge fan of sweet potatoes, despite the old Indonesian belief that sweet potatoes are just for the poor.

Anyway, I am not exactly a rich bitch yet ;) and can be considered rather poor :D
...and I am an easy victim of advertising.
So when I saw an ad for this sweet potato pie on TV, I rushed SC to buy it for me.
Yes, advertisers...
Target me, I'll most probably buy :D

How was it?
Mc Donald's Sweet Potato Pie - Hong Kong
It's the pie (or turnover?) crust that I love love LOVE...with creamy and sweet filling.
I wish that there's more sweet potato flavors (which will have to be chemically "enhanced" I guess)...and some hint of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg would be nice...although I am not sure if it would fit the Hong Kong market.

The verdict? Not bad!...at least it doesn't look like the green bean pie, which reminded me of green baby poo (opps, sorry for ruining your appetite, guys~)

Haha, I love the mental and creative stuff Maccy D does in HK! Every time I'm over I go and see what they've dreamt up this time... still haven't managed to try Shake-Shake Fries, though, which my good friend Rina tells me are mind-blowingly good.

Love it.

I love sweet potato too! Although the sound of sweet potato pie does sound a little weird.....
*sigh* we only have apple pies here =S so boring! Although still really really yummy =) I'm easily influenced by advertisements too! I know it's bad but I can't keep myself from doing so! haha.....

Yum! Did you know in the US, most McDonald's restaurants don't fry the pies anymore? They're baked, and that doesn't produce the same crust at all. :( Plus, we only have apple and cherry flavors. I always try to eat at a McDonald's when I travel so I can try all the different things other countries have.

I loved sweet potato pie, I would definitely prefer this than the apple pie sold here. Why the MacDonald in US lacks creativity, same old menu all the times! :(

Think the chemically enhanced flavors is to preserve the filling more than anything else? I am thinking with sweet potato, cinnamon and nutmeg, it is already so tasty - why need other chemicals? :O
