Review: Starbucks - Petite Apple Pie

Starbucks new Petite Apple Pie is a bite-sized mini pie with an apple and cinnamon filling.

It's normally $1.50 for one but Starbucks is currently running a promotion where you can get two for $2.

These things are small. Maybe a little bit bigger than an Oreo in diameter. It's not bad for portion control though I guess. If it tasted really good, I wouldn't mind the size. Unfortunately, Starbucks Petite Apple Pie fell a bit short in the flavor department.

The crust on the one I got was a bit on the soft side. It's supposed to be flaky but it wasn't. It was more soft, a little mushy and lacking in texture. I was hoping for a bit of crispness and flakiness. You could taste the butter in the crust though. Mmm... butter!

The filling disappointed as well. I was hoping for a bright, tart apple flavor tinged with cinnamon. But what I got was mostly just sugar and muted hints of apple; the few little bits of apples seemed a bit dehydrated and lacked flavor.

Disappointment city. I would get McDonald's Baked Apple Pie over this and save myself a few cents to boot. Or better yet, one of KFC's fried Apple Turnovers (just like the old McDonald's pies!)!

  1. As typical. good pics.

    After being poked with several needles and having a horrid concoction poured into my circulatory system yesterday after the conclusion of the procedures I allowed my withered decaying decrepit self to luxuriate and treated myself to some items from the cheap part of the McD menu.

    A couple of this and that with the mayo left off to reduce carbs and one of the buns tossed aside from each burger and McCluck-type sandwich thingy to further reduce carbs and calories.

    But, the two-for-a-buck apple pie critters, smaller than ones from the past, were consumed whole.

    For an el cheapo fast-food edible they weren't bad and at 50 cents each... what the heck.

    And the planet continues rotating and revolving and moving along with the solar system and with the galaxy as a whole and with the expanding universe.

    And all this while burping within the shanty.

    Wheeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I really doubt you ate one because this is far from "lacking" in the flavor department i think you need to see a doctor my friend because your taste buds are either burnt or destroyed from some other random act
