AJ's TOP 10 LIST:
Fast-food giant McDonald's announced Thursday its pledge to promote only water, milk and juice as the beverages that comes with a Happy Meal. They also plan to use Happy Meal packaging to "generate excitement" for fruits and vegetables. McDonald's said these new changes will happen in 20 major markets around the world and will be fully implemented by 2020.
TOP 10: FAILED FAST FOOD PRODUCTS
1) McDLT - Packaged in a double-sided Styrofoam container that kept “the hot side hot and the cool side cool.” It was discontinued in 1990, because of the container. McDonald’s was already facing public relations problems because of the environmental unfriendliness of its standard clamshell packaging.
2) The Arch Deluxe - A hamburger intended to appeal to grown-up tastes. It stiffed. The price was markedly higher than the other items on the McDonald’s menu, and the very expensive ad campaign featured unhappy children claiming that they didn’t like the burger, a bizarre way to promote a product if there ever was one.
3) BK Burger Bundles - Despite the Burger Bundles’ popularity, preparing them was more difficult than anyone realized. Line cooks experienced “operational difficulties” when working with the tiny patties, and the undersized burgers frequently fell through the grating of the kitchen’s broilers.
4) Supersized Fries and Drinks - Phased out in 2004. The company claimed that this was part of a larger effort to make their menu healthier, however many people speculate that the decision was influenced by a lawsuit claiming that McDonald’s food had made two teenage girls obese.
5) Taco Bell Beefer - The sandwich simply took everything that’s in a taco, such as ground beef, cheese and lettuce, and put it on a bun. Taco Bell discontinued it as the 1980s drew to a close, a decision that angered the sandwich’s loyal cult following.
6) Hula Burger - The Hula Burger used a pineapple slice instead of a beef patty, and it was made even more unappetizing with a piece of cheese. The Hula Burger failed miserably.
7) Frescata - In 2006, the Wendy’s chain decided to compete with Subway restaurants and offer their own line of freshly prepared deli sandwiches. It never caught on because the made-to-order sandwiches took longer to prepare than the hamburgers that rolled off the assembly line all day.
8) McPizza - Like Wendy's Frescata sandwiches, they simply took too long to make for a fast food restaurant, and they didn't have the pull to lure people away from their regular Pizza restaurants.
9) McLean Deluxe - Claims to be 91% fat free was a good thing, but using seaweed to keep the patty staying together didn't sell well to the public.
10) BK's Enormous Omlette Sandwich - Egg Omlette, Sausage and Cheese on a big sesame seed bun was deemed too big for customers and discontinued.
