Burger King is reportedly saying goodbye to one of its classic treats.
The restaurant confirmed to FOX Business that it will no longer serve its Dutch Apple Pie in the United States, which stood apart from other fast-food pies since they came in slices instead of pockets.
“Burger King restaurants will no longer be offering the apple pie as part of our dessert menu since our supplier is no longer producing the product," a company spokesperson said.

The pies may still appear on some menus until supplies run out nationally, according to Chewboom,
The chain, owned by Restaurant Brands International, has been feeling the effects of the coronavirus pandemic with slower-than-normal demand. Many businesses have been leaning heavily on takeout, delivery and drive-thru sales as in-store dining remains suspended.
Same-store sales fell 3.7 percent at Burger King, Restaurant Brands’ first-quarter earnings show. In addition to Burger King, the company owns Popeyes and Tim Hortons.
CEO Jose Cil said in the report: “Our teams have taken thoughtful and immediate actions to protect and serve our guests and our restaurant owners have shown great resilience in overcoming the challenges we all face. In particular, we have worked very closely with our restaurant owners to help them and their team members weather this global crisis."
"We are fortunate to have drive-thru, take-out, mobile order and payment, curbside and delivery options in many of our restaurants that have allowed us to be a safe, trusted and convenient choice for millions of guests who have had to change their routines or stay at home in these extraordinary times.”
