10 Cancelled McDonald’s Items That People Still Talk About (Part 4)

As far as fast-food chains are concerned,
McDonald’s has been part of  the global food psyche for decades now. But not everything
the fast-food giant dishes out has been a total success. So without further ado, let’s
dig in. Here are 10 Cancelled McDonald’s Items That People Still Talk About (Part 4). McStuffins The fast food game can be a difficult and
well, fast paced, industry to be involved in. With the constant demand and need for
new products and innovative combos, it can be a very challenging business. When you’re
a world renowned company such as McDonald’s, especially as they are primarily known for
their burgers, it can be difficult to come up with new food items that will please the
customers. Back in the early 1990’s McDonald’s tried to really rock the boat and bring out
something completely different with the McStuffin. The idea was actually a good one; Baked French
bread stuffed with fillings of your choice. You could have Cheese, Pepperoni and even
Chicken Teriyaki! The idea was truly a bold move for a brand like McDonald’s, but unfortunately
the McStuffin never took off. After market-testing the product, which didn’t go so well, McDonald’s
decided to launch the product anyway, hoping that the public would take to it better. But
they didn’t and only a year later this item was taken off the menu for good. We think
it’s a shame; with a re-branding, and maybe a name change, we hope to see the McStuffin
back on the menus in the future. Spanish Omelette Bagel We all know that McDonald’s is at the foreground
of fast food when it comes to burgers and fries, but they also lead the way with breakfast.
With hash browns, many varieties of McMuffins, and coffee, McDonald’s has been a staple for
many people’s breakfasts for years. We’ve all had those days when we’re rushed for work,
miss breakfast and therefore have to go into our nearest McDonald’s for something fast
and tasty to start our day. McDonald’s has cornered the market on this. Spending years
crafting out the perfect breakfast menu can be difficult, and it took McDonald’s a few
tries to really get it right. We know, it’s hard to imagine the world without a Sausage
and Egg McMuffin, but there was a time when it didn’t exist. So you can forgive McDonald’s
if they’re tentative to change or to introduce new items to their now popular breakfast menu.
However, back in the early 2000’s, The Golden Arches decided to add an extra breakfast choice:
the Spanish Omelette Bagel. In theory, this was actually a safe choice for the breakfast
menus, as it was essentially a bagel with egg. Of course there were extras like ham,
onions and spices, but the Spanish Omelette Bagel should have been a real winner. Unfortunately
it wasn’t. We don’t really know why the public didn’t take to this but shortly after it was
released, the Spanish Omelette Bagel was taken off the menu. Eggs Benedict McMuffin As we’ve seen from this list already, it can
be very difficult to introduce new products to a popular and well established menu. Sometimes
those products really fly with the public and quickly become part of our regular take-out
routines, and other times they bomb so hard that they quickly disappear from the menu
as if they’d never existed. With that in mind there can be a lot of pressure on those who
have to make the choice on what to include and what to pass. So, when those people are
thinking of new breakfast items and ideas, what better and safer choice than Eggs Benedict?
This classic dish has been a staple giant in the breakfast world since its creation
over a hundred years ago. Is there any better item to add to a breakfast menu? And it should
be simple, right? Unfortunately for McDonald’s, the answers to both of those questions were
“no”. In principle this should have been a real winner; you take the McMuffin, poach
an egg, and cover it in Hollandaise sauce, then just add in some bacon or ham. The first
problem that McDonald’s had was the very simple poached egg. Because of the specific timing
that was needed to poach the perfect egg, McDonald’s couldn’t cook them fast enough
in testing, so they used their egg from the traditional McMuffin. The public didn’t respond
well to this and the Eggs Benedict McMuffin was taken off the menu. McDonald’s should,
however, be given praise for making their own Hollandaise sauce, which is not an easy
thing to do on such a mass scale. Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry It wasn’t just breakfast that fell victim
to the unfortunate experimentations of the McDonald’s chefs. The fast food chain turned
its attention to its dessert menu, too. Trying to revamp and add to its already popular items,
McDonald’s came up with a new McFurry. It was called the Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry.
Although McFlurry’s are already a well established and popular desert, the public always wants
more flavors. Each holiday brings out a special, limited edition, which of course we love!
But how about a permanent new flavor that we can enjoy again and again. Unfortunately
the Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry wasn’t the answer. While the idea of that fresh strawberry
taste mix with crunchy shortcake sounds amazing, the public didn’t take to it, and the Strawberry
Shortcake McFlurry didn’t stay around for long. Triple Double Burger When you release a new menu item to coincide
with the release of a new superhero movie, you better hope not only that your product
is good but also that the movie itself becomes a hit. In 1995 Val Kilmer was chosen to play
the titular hero in Batman Forever. Nobody knows why Warner Bros had made that peculiar
decision, unfortunately for them it wasn’t the most popular of choices! On the other
side, McDonald’s was trying to cash in on the expected stunning hit that was to be Batman
Forever. It was probably the presence of Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carrey as the villains that
emboldened them to hitch a ride on the Batman train. The brilliant idea they came up with
was the triple-double burger. It had three patties and two slices of cheese. And just
to make sure everyone didn’t miss the connection with the movie, they called this mammoth burger,
the Superhero Burger. Ok, so Batman Forever, and later Batman and Robin, didn’t do so well
and almost ended the Batman franchise for good. But the Superhero burger was a great
addition to the McDonald’s menu, in our opinion at least. McSoup One of the interesting things about fast food
is that they don’t really offer a lot of soup. Which we find quite a strange thing. After
all, soup is fairly easy and cheap to make. Plus it’s popular. So why don’t they do it? 
The honest answer is that we don’t know. There are some restaurants out there that offer
great takeout soup, so why can’t fast food restaurants mass produce it? Unfortunately
a lot of fast food chains may have been put off by McDonald’s attempts to do it. The idea
was brilliant and so very simple: serve a cup of hot and tasty soup to the people. The
results were disastrous for the fast food giant, so much so that many people regard
the McSoup as McDonald’s biggest failure ever! It’s not surprising then that it was very
quickly swept under the rug. The real reason for its ultimate failure was probably down
to the fact that it actually WAS Campbell’s soup just poured into a McDonald’s cup. A
fact that McDonald’s didn’t try to hide too much. However, with a big rebranding, and
care in preparation, the McSoup could really make a big comeback. Especially in the winter
months. Sweet Chili Sauce If there’s one distinguishing feature about
fast food menus, it’s their exquisite sauce. Without the dip, you end up eating practically
the same thing in every outlet. This is why McDonald’s R&D budget has a big chunk devoted
to the sauce department. Right this very moment, there is a small army of chefs and their minions
working around the clock to come up with new sauces. We have seen it time and time again.
When the company needs to introduce a new menu item in a hurry, they dig up an old item
and serve it with a new sauce. It works every time. So now we know the importance of the
dip in the fast-food world and we know the resources put into developing new flavors.
So why would there be something called sweet chili sauce? Considering the attention given
to sauces, such a dip shouldn’t even have existed. Basically this “new” sauce was
just your regular duck sauce with an ample amount of chili flakes thrown in. There was
nothing new or original about it. That’s why when it first appeared in 2010, it failed
to impress anyone. Hot Mustard Sauce Unlike the previous sauce which fell flat
on the palates of the foodies, this one was different. The hot mustard sauce started a
little fire in your mouth every time you introduced it to your tongue. It made every morsel you
dip into it a delicious bite to devour. It was simply a hot item on the menu and customers
couldn’t get enough of it. So why was it discontinued? There’s no satisfying answer
for that question. Back in 2015, McDonald’s decided to pull this hot mustard sauce off
the menu, much to the dismay of loyal clients. Even today you’ll still find people going
into an outlet and ordering the canceled item in the hope it might have been reintroduced
again. There are even rumors that certain outlets still offer it. As we said, it’s
just a rumor and we couldn’t verify it. Still, hope springs eternal. Supersize There’s a forgotten rule of marketing that
goes: if your customers like something, give them more of it. OK, we made that up. We’re
not sure if it’s a marketing rule or not. We never studied marketing. We only used our
great skills of speculation and deducted that this must have been the logic behind McDonald’s
starting a campaign called Supersize. In simple terms, the fast-food chain gave the customers
the choice to upgrade their orders of fries and drinks to an extra-large size. Shortly
after the supersize option hit the street, a documentary called Super Size Me hit the
theatre, TV stations or wherever people watch documentaries. In it, a person named Morgan
Spurlock claimed to eat only McDonald’s food for 30 days, and he would only supersize
a meal when asked. Spurlock’s body, health, and wellbeing underwent some awful changes.
Eventually, his dishonest practices with the documentary came to light – he was eating
over 5000 calories a day and not exercising; anyone would be in poor health with those
sorts of choices, no matter where the food was coming from! Still, despite the documentary
being over-dramatized at best, what the people saw convinced them that having too much of
McDonald’s fries and beverages weren’t such a good idea after all. The company came
to the same conclusion and discontinued the campaign shortly after. McJordan Special In the early 1990’s there were two names that
seemingly ruled the world; McDonald’s and Michael Jordan. Imagine if those two giants
came together to give us something special? Well, imagine no more as that’s exactly what
happened. The NBA legend and fast food giant came together to give us the McJordan Special.
A 1/4 pound beef patty with cheese and bacon topped with barbecue sauce, mustard and plenty
of pickles. Many may say that the McJordan is just a fancy Quarter Pounder with bacon,
and that may be the case, but the Quarter Pounder doesn’t have Michael Jordan! For those
out there that are too young to know who Jordan is, then you’re in for a treat. Jordan was
a hall of fame basketball player who also played baseball after his retirement. Where
Jordan really made his mark in the NBA was with the Chicago Bulls. Winning six NBA championships,
including a ‘three-peat,’ Jordan very quickly became the most famous, and richest, sports
star on the planet. With his use of slam dunks, he also earned the nicknames ‘Air-Jordan’
and ‘His-Airness.’ Unfortunately, this team-up didn’t last long, which is a shame! We’ve got a lot more great videos for you

  3. The girl who does these videos narrated my dream last night breaking down a first date I was one with T-Boz from TLC. Must of had auto play on when I passed out

  4. Wasn't Spurlock also a vegan/vegetarian health nut? I would assume going from that to McDonald's three times a day would have a huge impact.

  5. Ive only ever tried mcdonalds once and that was once to many times. Cardboard burgers in buns ways to sweet and these skinny anemic soggy things they call fries. Disgusting place it is burger kings much the same.

  6. McDonalds meat is actually human meat. All the missing children are catholics who have been kidnapped by jews and sold for their flesh. Not trolling, this is real. They have even admitted it, knowing nobody will ever believe it.

  7. Yes you only asked one McDonald's person…. Awful video. Do your research ffs. The sauces come and go along with the burgers and mozzarella sticks and cheese bites! It's a cycle. Big tasty is avaliable for a month along with certain dips. However your making McDonald's workers look bad in the 🇬🇧 UK

  8. You forgot about the Szechuan sauce for the Chicken McNuggets. It came back a couple of years ago only to disappear again.

  9. Have you heard the news that McDonald's is bring back 40 years of happy with it some beloved mascots but from November 7 to november 11

  11. Strawberry shortcake McFlurry sounds delicious! But I guess the machine was probably yuck right? O always get confused about which fast food shake machine is gross. Oh but I really want a strawberry shortcake McFlurry……Oh yeah, it's been discontinued haha. Oh well. Damn.

  12. … … you don't have hot mustard sauce anymore? It was discontinued in Canada, and with the public outcry it was back within the year. I just had some nuggets (and fries, of course) with hot mustard sauce a few weeks ago. Wouldn't go to McDonald's if they didn't have it.

  13. most people go too McDonald's for burgers and breakfast if they keep there menu simple it's less things too screw up takes more time too order it's fast food

  14. Believe it or not, hollandaise is easier to make the MORE egg yolks you use. God only knows if they were using only eggs butter and seasoning though…

  15. You guys suck wasting 6 minutes before you say the first item. But it’s ok bec we all skip that stupid shit anyway

  16. Since moving to Charm City I have only been to McDonald's one time in three weeks. I had a coffee and a fruit parfait but no double cheeseburgers or fries that I love. I miss those fried foods but my heart doesn't!

  17. Wow for the years I ate here, from kids meals to full large meals, I have never heard of so many of these things here. Then again the majority of these items came out before/around the time I was born. I wish I could have tried the McStuffin. Even though its basically a hot pocket and those things at Costco that are almost the embodiment of it.

  18. I live in meridian, Mississippi. And can confirm that McDonald's hot mustard is not discontinued and get it regularly here

  19. My local McDonald’s stopped serving the Hot Mustard Sauce and I wasn’t too happy about it, because its’s my favorite kind of sauce but it was only a couple of weeks and they brought it back and I’m so thankful lol 😆

  23. Please bring back the Super Size! Who cares what that idiot documentary guy does! No one that I know of would be stupid enough, to eat three meals of McDonald's EVERYDAY. That's not even realistic. If Americans want to over eat, it's their money, let them have it! Bring back the double Filet O'Fish and Ranch McWraps also, please.

  24. Feel bad for ya childhood McDonald's discounted Food's people from the comments. But at least be glad that some foods are out there today! They might be gone on the future.
