McDonald's Discontinued Menu Items

Hulaburger: A Ray Kroc invention, it featured a slice of pineapple instead of meat. Originally intended for Roman Catholics who were not allowed to eat meat on Fridays during Lent. It was test-marketed in 1963.

McFeast: A hamburger with a slice of ham and cheese, in certain markets in the late 1970s. The name McFeast lives on though in the Nordic countries, where a McFeast has been served since the mid-1980s in Sweden and later introduced to the rest of the Nordic countries, the McFeast in Sweden contains a quarter pounder patty, lettuce, modified mayonnaise with lemon juice, onion and tomato. In the rest of the countries, the McFeast also contains ketchup, but not in Sweden. The same burger was sold under the name Mega Feast in New Zealand for several years during the 1990s, but has since been discontinued. The McFeast was sold in Australia until late 2009 and contained: mustard, ketchup, large onions, McChicken sauce, lettuce, 1 tomato slice, regular cheese and a 4:1 quarter pounder patty served in a Quarter Pounder/McChicken Bun.

McDLT: The McDLT (McDonald's Lettuce and Tomato) was sold in a novel form of packaging.[20] The McDLT was introduced in the fall of 1984 as the Lettuce and Tomato Special. The meat and bottom half of the bun were prepared separately from the lettuce, tomato, American cheese, pickles, sauces, and top half of the bun. Both were then packaged into a specially designed two-sided styrofoam container. The consumer was then expected to finalize preparation of the sandwich by combining the hot and cool sides just prior to eating. It was discontinued in 1990 due to environmental concerns with styrofoam.

Onion Nuggets: introduced at the same time as the Beefsteak Sandwich as the side item for the Dinner Menu. Onion Nuggets were chopped onions shaped into small solid pieces, dipped in batter and deep-fried.

Triple Ripple: A mixed cone with strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate, topped with a plastic top.

Big 33 or McJordan Special: A quarter pound burger with bacon and special barbecue sauce named after basketball players Larry Bird and Michael Jordan, respectively.

Dinner Menu: After testing pasta in the South in 1989, McDonald's began testing a pasta-based menu at 40 units across Rochester, N.Y., in September 1991, including lasagna, fettuccine alfredo, and spaghetti with meatballs.[22] In the early 1990s, a new Dinner Menu was tested for 6–12 months at two locations in New York and Tennessee. It consisted of the above mentioned pizza but also included lasagna, spaghetti, fettuccine alfredo, and roasted chicken as entrees. The side dishes included mashed potatoes and gravy and a vegetable medley.[citation needed] For the dessert, it included a brownie à la mode.

Kiwi Burger: New Zealand periodically sold a burger called the 'Kiwi Burger', reflecting their national icon the Kiwi, during the '00s. The packaging had many classic kiwi quotes, kiwiana, and kiwi sporting icons.
