Continuing its efforts to offer more regional fare, McDonald's is now selling cherry turnovers made with Michigan-grown cherries. Similar to the chain's Garlic Fries made with California garlic and its New England Lobster Rolls, the new dessert helps McDonald's better cater to regional taste preferences.

The new Cherries 'n Creme Pie is Michigan-specific offering made with locally grown cherries. Similar to the seasonal Strawberry and Creme Pie, the new turnovers will consist of a flaky pastry crust stuffed with both a cherry filling and a rich creme filling. The pies will be available for just 89 cents, making them a budget-friendly dessert or snack option.

With three-quarters of the tart cherries grown in the US coming from Michigan, McDonald's new cherry turnovers perfectly celebrate the state's abundant harvest.
