Unlike its rivals, such as Burger King, Wendy's, and Taco Bell, McDonald's doesn't change its menu as often.

Concerning the dessert menu, McDonald's has ice cream cones, sundaes, and McFlurry. And there are also chocolate chip cookies, shakes, and the classic hot-baked apple pie.

Although the company didn't provide the exact locations where it has introduced the new dessert, it noted that the new item is currently being spotted around the country.

According to a report by ChewBoom, McDonald's has brought back the Blueberry & Crème Pie for 2023 in some locations.

This decade, the company has focused on the digital side of the business rather than the menu. The main focus has been building a database by increasing app users through special offers.

Still, an app is less exciting than a new dessert menu item.

The last time McDonald's brought back the Blueberry & Crème Pie for a limited time last year in 2022. This is its first appearance on the company's menu since 2017.

The hashtag for McDonald's pies on TikTok shows videos of McDonald's pies from customers worldwide.

The number of videos for McDonald's pies is 4.4 million views strong - a lust for pies that could be too strong to ignore.

While it's unclear exactly how big a roll-out the blueberry and crème pies will be, McDonald's is making a move that will most likely delight fans on social media.

As of January 3, 2023, there were 13,281 McDonald's restaurants in the US. California has the most number of the company's locations in the country, followed by Texas and Florida.

Final thoughts

For industry insiders, it's a surprise to see McDonald's adding a new dessert to its menu at this time.
