Top 5 Items McDonald’s No longer Serves
McDonald’s is the definition of what a fast food place is supposed to be. Starting with Inexpensive hamburgers and fries, it has become an institution of American eating. However, for all the Hamburgers, Fish Fillets, and all the other things that have become staples of their menu, there are a lot of items that didn’t last long. Here are 5 McDonald’s items that didn’t last long under the golden arches.
A plain burger from 1984, it was lettuce and tomato with the top bun on one side and the hot Patty and the bottom bun in the second compartment of a foldable styrofoam container. It was rather plain and the styrofoam went out of style and quickly became environmentally unfriendly.
A side order to the roast beef sandwiches in 1980. The roast beef didn’t sell well and soon chicken nuggets were introduced in 1984 so the deep fried onion nuggets were phased out in short order and never caught on.
Roast Beef Sandwiches
An attempt to market towards adults in 1980, It came with a packet of BBQ sauce and an order of Onion Nuggets. It didn’t last long as the recipe for the roast beef was changed and the roast beef proved to be much more expensive over other menu items at the time.
Introduced by McDonald’s owner Ray Kroc in 1963 as an alternative to burgers for Catholics, it featured a deep fried pineapple slice prepared like a burger. The Hula Berger was famously replaced by the Fillet-o-Fish by one of the franchisees and outsold it right into retirement.
Introduced in 1998 in another attempt to appeal to adults, it was a burger in a pricey bun upgrade and a fancy new sauce. Eventually, it led to upscale Chicken and Fish Deluxe sandwiches. The Arch Deluxe was a huge money loser and the company fired their advertising head and replaced him in an attempt to reinvent their marketing.
