    Some of these I don't even remember or remember hearing about. Some of these I just have to shake my head that a table of executives thought they were a good idea. :snicker:


    THE McLobster

    [​IMG]
    I'm shocked that no one wanted to go to McDonald's for seafood.

    The McSpaghetti

    [​IMG]

    The McPizza

    [​IMG]
    McDonald's tried to expand to an Italian menu but failed as customers waited too long for the items to be made and rather go to established Italian fast food places.


    The Hula Burger

    [​IMG]
    The Hula Burger replaced a meat patty with a grilled pineapple slice. It was meant for Catholics who didn't eat meat on Fridays. But the Filet-o-Fish was much more popular, and the Hula burger died.


    McLean Deluxe

    [​IMG]
    The McLean burger was introduced in 1991 and advertised as 91% fat-free. McDonald's replaced fat with seaweed and water. Customers didn't like the taste.


    The McHotdog

    [​IMG]
    The McHotDog was just a basic hot dog. But consumers preferred ordering burgers, and the item was pulled.


    The McAfrika

    [​IMG]
    The McAfrika had beef, cheese, and tomatoes on a pita sandwich.

    The sandwich caused a spate of negative publicity in 2002 after it was released during famines in southern Africa. McDonald's apologized and pulled the item.



    The McDLT

    [​IMG]
    The McDLT was introduced in the 1980s. The burger came in a styrofoam container that kept the lettuce and tomato separate so the veggies stayed cool. The item was popular but then was squashed by environmental concerns about the packaging.



    Christ, what a commercial....:snicker:

    The McDLT was a great sandwich. The hot side stayed hot, and the cool side was......well, it was cool. What, do you need a diagram or something?

    I would like the lobster roll, I think. But I doubt if it's real lobster.

    Taco Bell was the only restaurant to survive the Franchise Wars. Now all restaurants are Taco Bell.

    I only saw them once and that was in Maine. Maine, the best place on earth to sell fast food lobster because, hey, it's Maine and they can't get any.
