McDonald’s Hawaii offers a special menu of items you can only find in Hawaii. There are breakfast platters loaded with Spam and Portuguese sausage, a dessert menu with hot haupia (coconut pudding) and taro pies, fried apple pies (only state where you can get the pies fried in the US!), and much more. Below are our favorites, ranked.
The only time I eat fast food is in Hawaii. Fast food places here are clean, service is friendly…and the Hawaii-only menu items are a treat. There are breakfast platters loaded with Spam and Portuguese sausage. The dessert menu offers haupia (coconut pudding) and taro pies. Bonus: did you know Hawaii is the only state where you can get McDonald’s fried apple pies (not baked!) in the US?
Below, my favorite Hawaii-only McDonald’s menu items, ranked.
1. Fried Haupia (and Taro) Pies
Haupia (sometimes called “coconut pudding”) is a traditional Hawaiian coconut dessert that has a consistency halfway between pudding and jelly. At Mcdonald’s Hawaii, they stuff haupia into the pie crust and deep fry the whole thing. It’s really good, the haupia is all hot and molten, and that fried pie crust is familiar in all the right ways.
They also make Fried Taro Pies! But you’ll never find both Fried Haupia Pies and Fried Taro Pies on the menu at the same time. It’s always one or the other, and they keep rotating them back and forth…….
