I don’t get to eat there much anymore but I won’t lie, there is always a time and place for McDonald’s in my heart… except for these items, I don’t miss (most of) them!

McDonald’s has made so many changes over the years. Some of the changes have been great (no more styrofoam containers) and some have been terrible (where did the fried apple pies go?!). Were some of their decisions good for our health, like not cooking fries in beef fat? Yes. Were they better decisions for our taste buds? No. No, they were not. But fries and apple pies aside, there are a lot of missing menu items that most of us don’t miss at all.

In theory, the idea was great. The tall cup allowed you to pour in the dressing, shake up the container to mix all the ingredients up, and then enjoy on the go. But here’s the problem, no one really buys a salad to eat on the go. They buy a salad to eat in a bowl while sitting (or maybe standing) at a table.

Again, in theory, the idea was great. But no one goes to McDonald’s to get a healthy burger. No one.

What family chooses to dine on a large pizza at fast food burger joint?! Psycho families do. If this was something you did, I probably don’t want to meet you.

I totally ate these. Don’t judge me. I ate the s%#t out of these. I’m still sad they’re gone. Let’s move on, okay?

Retro: Weird Items that Disappeared Off the Menu - McDonald's Hula Burger

Hula Burger

If there was an actual burger (beef, chicken, veggie?!) on this burger, it could’ve been something inspiring. But instead it was just pineapple with cheese on a bun. I repeat: pineapple. With cheese. On. A. Bun. Why?

Not to be confused with Doc. I didn’t know these ever existed. I think my life is better for it.

I never knew what this stood for but when I was a kid, I totally fell for the marketing campaign. My parents never understood. Looking back, they were totally right. Why does anyone want to have to assemble their fast food burger at the table or in their car. So stupid.

Why? What’s wrong with a good, old fashioned onion ring?!

McDonald’s, you do what you do so well. STAY IN YOUR LANE! Let the Filet-O-Fish be the only seafood item on your menu. The idea of your version of a cheap Lobster Roll scares the crap out of me.
