12 McDonald's Menu Items That Failed Spectacularly

Who knew they even had all these items? I would have liked to tried the McGratin Croquette. I've only remember these....

Arch Deluxe
McLean Deluxe

never knew about these......

Big N' Tasty
McPizza....(like Hot Pockets
)Hula Burger
McGratin Croquette

I miss the Super-Size option......

  1. The McLobster didn't fail everywhere; it's a seasonal item I some parts of Canada, including Nova Scotia where I am, but only during the summer. If its back every year, and for a few months, I'd have disagree with the failure part. The rest of the list though...

      1. I always loved the McDLT. I liked the crispier lettuce on the "cold" side!

            1. I have no idea what a Big and Tasty is but weren't they still advertising it like last week?

              And they still do the lobster thing here, too

              1. McAfrika, Hula Burger and McGratin Croquette sound like they are from out of the US. Who knows if they were failures.

                  The Hula burger was actually an American invention by Ray Kroc ( the guy that originally franchised McDonalds), they were trying to come up with a meatless burger for Fridays for Catholics. It lost out to the other tested product the filet o fish.

                  Can you tell I was bored one day this weekend and watched the rerun of a special on McDonalds behind the scenes?
