There is a website called listverse where there are a myriad of different lists that you can browse through. It’s pretty entertaining and can fill some boredom time if you’re looking for something interesting. Lists vary from things like trave,l to ufo mysteries, to food topics. That’s where I stumbled across the list of the Top 10 Failed McDonald’s Products. Here they are with my commentary:
1. Mc Gratin Croquette
This gag me concoction consists of fried macaroni, shrimp, and mashed potatoes served on a bed of cabbage. Really? GAG GAG GAG. Don’t get me wrong. I like all of those things but not mixed together. That’s is f’in gross.
2. The Hulaburger
This was prepared like a regular burger but instead of a beef patty they substituted a slice of pineapple. Um….no thank you I’ll take mine minus the pineapple add meat please.
3. The McDLT
This was a burger that they halfway prepared and by this I mean they gave you the burger with the condiments on the side so they could slack off and you would have to prepare the rest of your own food. Um… I order fast food because I’m lazy and thus would like for it to be ready to eat. Also, how am I supposed to dress my burger while I’m driving. Not that I do that….. okay I do.
4. The Arch Delux
THis was supposed to be a burger that only adults would enjoy. I’m no economist or advertising exec but I would think that if you were going to spend $100 million on a product that you would aim for kids since they are probably your biggest target audience. I could be wrong about this, but that’s just my opinion
5. The McLobster
No way am I ever ordering Lobster from McDonald’s. Enough said.
6. The McHotdog
I’m not sure why this one failed. Maybe something to do with how nasty it looks???????
7. The McPizza
Um…… who goes to McDonald’s for pizza when you can just have all that yumminess brought right to your door? Poor thinking McDonald’s…poor thinking.
8. The McPasta
The McPasta choices included lasagna, fettuccine alfredo, and spaghetti with meatballs and came with a side dish of your choice of mashed potatoes with gravy or a vegetable medley. Yeah……. Again, when I go to McDonald’s it’s not for it’s Italian cuisine. Also, I can’t eat spaghetti and drive people. It’s just too hard. Then I get sauce all over my shirt. Wait, I get crap on my shirt anyways. So, nevermind about that argument but still who wants pasta from McDonalds? Not me, I’ll pass.
9. The McAfrica
THis is my favorite. Really McDonald’s? Who came up with the name for this one? Did you really think that was going to fly? Hmmmm… I wonder how much in famine relief McDonald’s had to pay to cover their hides (get it… I’m funny- hides- cowhides?)
and last but not least
10. The McLean Delux
This was a low-fat burger that they advertised. Again, McDonalds we are going for fast food. Do you really thing that when this product first came out it was going to be a huge hit. Also, you replaced the fat with seaweed. EW EW EW! That is not comparable. They don’t even remotely taste the same, and, also, I don’t want seaweed with my fries and coke.
