Why You Can't Try The New McDonald's Dessert That Everyone Is Talking About

McDonald's is always rolling out new products and with blueberry season in full swing, it seems like the perfect time to roll out their newest offering that has the Internet abuzz: Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie. It sounds amazing, right? A jammy blueberry filling along side a smooth cream cheese filling, wrapped in a flaky fried pie crust seems like a symphony for your mouth's taste buds. The only problem is that in order to try this new pie, you have to be in Malaysia (via Taste of Home). If that doesn't have you feeling jelly, this will. McDonald's Malaysia is also selling a blueberry sundae and a blueberry McFlurry, both swimming in a blueberry drizzle that makes the mouth water (via Trend Hunter).

Malaysia seems to be the testing ground for customers to experience many of McDonald's sweet promotions. The international chain is also selling the McDip which is McDonald's ice cream on a cone dipped in choco, matcha, or caramel dip (via Johor Foodie). When McDonald's Malaysia first rolled out the McDip, there was also a taro and mango dip option. At the same time, they introduced sweet macarons from France (via Hype). In fact, McDonald's is famous for creating desserts that play off of local favorites like the Cadbury Crunchie McFlurry in the UK or the Strawberry and Cream Cheese Patty in Russia (via Bustle).

According to Yahoo!, McDonald's blueberry cream cheese pie made its way into the fast food chain's kitchens in Malaysia in mid-March and social media users have been snapping it up, posting photos on Instagram and Facebook, making some of us feel the pangs of wanting to dust off the passport and travel to Malaysia just to try it. Blueberries are one of the most popular fruits to bake with so it seems like a natural choice for McDonald's to select this berry to debut in its pies (via Tastewise). 

So why did Malaysia get the blueberry cream cheese pie? McDonald's generally tests new products in a region where the star ingredient is already popular. For example, if it is a chicken product, it will probably be rolled out for a test run in Atlanta where chicken is already popular (via Chicago Tribune). Still, not all pie flavors are created equal. McDonald's has also introduced some seemingly crazy dessert pie fillings like a potato bacon pie in Japan, a sweet potato pie in Hong Kong, and a cheese pie in Mexico, Panama, and Costa Rica (via USA Today)

While there is no news as to whether or not McDonald's blueberry delicacies will make their way to the United States, you can always drown your sorrows in one of their baked apple pies or Oreo McFlurries.
