Earlier this year, Guava & Crème Pies were spotted at McDonald's restaurants in the Florida area. Similar to the Baked Apple Pies offered in California and the Cherries 'N Creme Pies offered in Michigan, the dish demonstrates McDonald's effort to offer more regionally inspired dishes to different markets.
The Guava & Crème Pie is a regional version of the deep-fried pies available from the regular McDonald's menu. The dish consists of a guava filling combined with a vanilla-flavored crème that is baked into the middle of a sugar-coated pie crust. The dish is likely meant to mimic a popular Latin American dessert that involves combining guava paste with cream cheese inside puff pastry dough. Considering Florida's high Latin American population, the dish is likely to appeal to regional taste preferences.
