10 Fast Food Ideas That Failed, Big Time
They say there’s no such thing as a bad idea, boy were they wrong.
No matter how much you and most of America loves fast food, not every creation can be a hit, no matter how beautiful the idea may seem. We’ve combined a list of items from popular fast food joints like McDonald’s and even Domino’s, to bring you creations that just didn’t do it for us.
1. Domino’s Oreo Pizza
Domino’s is popular for it’s delicious low-priced pizza’s. As for dessert, the company tried it but just wasn’t a hit. The base layer was a thin crust of cracker topped by a vanilla icing with Oreo cookie crumbles on top. Thank god I didn’t try this mess.
2. Wendy’s Breakfast
Breakfast from fast-food joints are always a hit or miss. Believe it or not, Wendy’s had their own breakfast menu in 2013. Though there is no set reason as to why they stopped serving breakfast, it’s safe to say they weren’t making enough cash for it.
3. Taco Bell’s Seafood Salad
Let’s be real, Taco Bell and salad shouldn’t even be in the same sentence. Mind you this was pitched back in 1989, so we understand.
Ah, another old school failed product. In the late 1980’s McDonald’s attempted to introduce their first pizza on their menu. Turns out they’re better at burgers.
5. Mcdonald’s Mighty Wings
Wings are the go to munch on meal for many of us. McDonald’s pitched this idea back in 2013. They came in a pack of three for around $3. We’re better off with the McChicken for less than the price of these wings.
6. Jack In The Box’s Frings
These were a combination of everyone’s favorite, onion rings and french fries. However, this idea proved both are better separate.
7. Burger King’s Enormous Omelette Sandwich
In 2005, this breakfast sandwich failed miserably. Leave it to Burger King to create an actual omelette sandwich for the most important meal of the day.
8. Burger King’s Satisfries
These babies were hyped! Essentially low-calorie french fries made it seem as if Burger King took a dive into a healthier menu. Customers weren’t too happy with this one, just imagine the bland taste.
9.Burger King’s Burger Shots
Fast food sliders? Hell yeah! Too bad these didn’t make the cut either. These were mini-burgers introduced in the 80s.
10. All Things Supersize at Mcdonald’s
If you haven’t watched the documentary “Super-Size Me” stop reading this article and watch it now. Way back before Netflix was a thing, McDonald’s had a “Super Size” feature that gave you the option to buy portions of food items and drinks that were way too huge for anyone. Proving to be dangerous, Morgan Spurlock even created a documentary on the craze.
