The fast food giant announced that they altered the recipe for the beloved dessert to include less ingredients and a whole new look. Though the news was announced last week, customers have just started airing their concerns on social media.
“What’s up with the new apple pies???? 😩 I like the old recipe better,” one Twitter user wrote. “Is it a seasonal thing? Or a permanent change???”
And the change is in fact here to stay.
“Our new freshly baked Apple pie recipe is in line with other positive changes we have made,” Tiffany Briggs, a McDonald’s spokesperson, said in a press release. “We removed, for example, artificial preservatives from our Chicken McNuggets and switched to real butter in our breakfast sandwiches because those changes matter to our guests.”
