The McDonald's Pie That's Only Available In Hawaii

Ah, McDonald's, those golden arches that so many love. As the highest-grossing fast food company in the world (via Investopedia), Mickey D's is scarfed down all over the globe. And what's really cool about the McDonald's menu is that, depending on where you are on Earth, you can taste different items that are only available locally and reflect the cuisine of the regional culture. In Hong Kong, for example, you can indulge in spiral pasta topped with ham and eggs; in Italy, turnovers stuffed with tomato and mozzarella are a thing; and in India, you can order a spicy paneer wrap (via Eat This, Not That!).

Even within the United States, McDonald's varies its menu regionally. In the South, for example, some locations serve biscuits and gravy at breakfast. And if you live in or visit Hawaii, you can hightail it to your local drive-thru to pick up a very intriguing menu item that's only available in that state.

Find haupia pie at McDonald's in Hawaii

If you love McDonald's apple pie – and the tropical taste of coconut — then you might be interested in trying out the haupia pies only available at McDonald's locations in Hawaii. According to Onolicious Hawaii, a haupia is a traditional Hawaiian coconut dessert whose texture is "halfway between pudding and jelly." At Mickey D's, they stuff this creamy coconut mixture into pie crust and deep-fry it. "It's really good, the haupia is all hot and molten, and that fried pie crust is familiar in all the right ways," the blog notes.

According to Taste, haupia is often found at luaus, potlucks, and other events. It's made of sweetened coconut milk and whole milk that's thickened with cornstarch, and the haupia is then typically chilled, cut into squares, and served sprinkled with toasted coconut flakes.

All of that piled into a fried pastry? Hold on while we book a flight to Hawaii.
