Last May, the Jollibee Choco Mallow Pie was relaunched in the market. Everyone kept talking about it. Even my Facebook Newsfeed was flooded with ads and posts about the all new and improved choco-mallow pie. I remember that they offered this when I was way younger, but then it got phased out. I never really got to try it before because my Mom always chose the peach mango pie or the chocolate sundae for dessert. Thanks to the quite convincing ads and the crazy number of people talking about it, I decided to give it a try as well (and also because it had CHOCOLATE! Hehehe).
Jollibee Choco Mallow Pie “Improvements”
Compared to the older version, the crust of the new Choco Mallow Pie is infused with chocolate. Because Jollibee decided to be all generous, apart from making a chocolatier crust, they also doubled up the choco filling.
Price: ♥♥♥/♥♥♥♥♥ (32 pesos
The Jollibee Choco Mallow Pie is sold at 32 pesos, a fairly typical price range for fast-food chain desserts in the PH. If I would be asked to spend my 32 pesos on another Jollibee treat, I would definitely switch to the Peach Mango Pie or their Chocolate Sundae instead.
I was quite disappointed when I first tried this new pie. Because I tend to be so forgiving, I tried to give it another shot. Sadly, I still felt the same after the second I ordered it.
Although I love chocolate to death, there is barely marshmallow inside the pie. Why else should they call it Choco Mallow Pie if there are not enough mallows in the first place? Second, it would have been way better if they just used the regular crust instead of the chocolate-infused one, that way there would be a contrast of flavors.
I do love Jollibee. I often call for delivery since they are the nearest fast food resto at my house. However, their new pie simply doesn’t work for me.
