McDonald’s Hot Apple Pie – Fried Edition
Image by Mouthful of Sunshine
Why back in 1992 McDonald’s removed the delicious fried pie and substituted it for the far less superior baked pie. While the baked pie may be a slightly healthier choice than its former pie, but if you are eating dessert anyway, why not go for the one that tastes better. I personally was a fan of the cherry pie.
McDonald’s Arch Delux
They tried to upgrade the burger, and we weren’t interested. They spend 100 million dollars on trying to tempt us with this upgraded burger and it’s own secret sauce, but we were still reaching for the Big Mac’s and the Quarter Pounders. No fancy stuff for us.
McDonald’s Hot Mustard
They pulled this sauce along with two others, and people have revolted, this addition may need to be yanked, I have heard reports that this sauce is making its come back out on the street, and if not, I have a copykat McDonald’s Hot Mustard for you.
Long before we cared a great deal about the environment excess packaging was in abundance. Here a clever concept was born, keeping the hot food hot, and the cold food, well cold. Here no veggies were in endanger of becoming cooked before their time. Ah, those were the days when food was made to sit under the heat lamp. Modern advances in technology, or assembling the burgers after they are ordered help with this ordeal.
McDonald’s Salad Shakers
Taco Bell Bell Beefer
So it was around in the 1980s. It didn’t last long, but it is a tasty take on the burger. This sandwich is filled with seasoned taco meat and cheese. For a bonus you can add some fresh tomatoes and some shredded lettuce. Add a little Taco Bell sauce, and you are in business. Get the copycat recipe for the Taco Bell Bell Beefer.
Taco Bell Frito Burrito
Oh yes they did. Fritos made it into a wonderful burrito at Taco Bell. Red Sauce, cheese, seasoned ground beef, Frito corn chips, and sour cream. Why in the world they took this one away we don’t know. You can even join the Facebook Fan Page to help bring this one back.
Wendy’s Salad Bar
Denny’s Fried Cheese Melt
Oh yes friends, they put fried cheese sticks inside of a grilled cheese sandwich. One can only hope only those who are lactose tolerant enjoy this sandwich. Oh and if you want a recipe for this one, check out this copycat Denny’s Fried Cheese Melt, just in case you want to make one for yourself.
Burger King Chicken Fries
Burger King Satisfries
We will remove the Chicken Fries, and put the Satisfries in their place. It seems like these failed it satisfy even though they were 40% less in fat, and 30% lower in calories than the standard French Fries that have been served everywhere. These are in the process of being removed from the stores during the fall of 2014.
