  • McDonald’s has brought back its colorful holiday pies for a limited time.
  • The pies are covered in a sugary glaze and rainbow sprinkles, with a vanilla custard filling.
  • McDonald’s says that the pies will only be available at participating locations, and that there’s no nationwide release date.

McDonald’s has found a new tradition in bringing holiday-themed pies to its menus in the last couple of years, with 2018’s holiday season being no exception.

McDonald’s holiday pies are made in a similar way to its ever-popular apple pies, but, rather than a fruit filling, they come with vanilla custard inside and a sugar-glazed shell on the outside, covered in rainbow sprinkles.

The pies will be only be available at participating McDonald's locations.

Chew Boom reports that the holiday pies may also be substituted with pumpkin and creme pies when supply of the holiday pies runs out.
