Not everyone can compete with McDonald's breakfast. While it's not the classiest breakfast, people love it and Wendy's has proven many times it can not compete. After putting many breakfast items on the menu over the years, Wendy's has pulled all of them.
The Breeze was Dairy Queen's attempt at a low calorie blizzard. It was made with frozen yogurt instead of ice cream. The breeze did not go over so well and in fact, the frozen yogurt would often spoil before it was ever used.
While wings may seem appetizing, wings on a fast food menu do not. The McDonald's Mighty Wings were too expensive, too spicy and definitely were not perceived well by customers. They were taken off the menu in November 2013.
Satisfries were a lighter version of their regular fries. While you may think low-cal fries are a genius idea, Burger King customers didn't think so. They would have rather had the real deal.
While we do live in a world of super sized everything, customers didn't want an over-sized omelette sandwich. The Enormous Omelette Sandwich was just way too big and ultimately didn't last long.
Just like wings, hot dogs don't go over well in a fast food restaurant. We can only imagine how much cooking actually went into these hot dogs. The McHot Dogs were quickly pulled from the stores. The McHot Dog was actually put on the breakfast menu in Japan.
This seafood salad just doesn't sound appealing. In the 1980s Taco Bell introduced the Seafood Salad trying to diversify their menu. But, after many reports of food poisoning (which we aren't surprised about,) it was pulled from the menu.
Fried pickles are delicious, but Sonic's version didn't appeal to many customers. We guess Sonic should just stick to tater tots.
McDonald's should stick to burgers and let pizza chains stick to pizza. The McPizza was offered in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It was made to order and customers were not found of the long wait lines. They chose to get their pizza elsewhere, surprise, surprise.
Wendy's tried to go healthier with these Frescata sandwiches. They resembled Subway sandwiches and needless to say, they didn't go over well.
McDonald's apparently wanted to include every food group on their menu. The McSpaghetti was introduced in the late 1970s. Overall, McDonald's customers were not pleased with the McSpaghetti, but it is still sold in some countries.
When a taco chain tries to make a burger, it usually doesn't turn out right and that is exactly what happened with Taco Bell's Bell Beefer. Customers chose to getting their tacos, and only tacos, from Taco Bell and their burgers from somewhere else.
While a box that contains fries and onion rings sounds amazing, the frings didn't do amazingly at Jack-In-The-Box. It was introduced in the 1970s and discontinued shortly after because people wanted one or the other.
Burger King has been trying, and failing, for a while to duplicate the White Castle sliders. They came out with the burger bundles in the late 1980s, the burger buddies after that and then the burger shots. None of their slider ideas have taken off.
While McDonald's salads now are a big hit, the salad shakers did not go over well. They were simply shakeable salads, but no one wanted to buy it. At least they have their salads now!
McDonald's came up with the Hula Burger as a way to offer an option for Catholics during lent. The sandwich consisted of a grilled pineapple and topped with cheese. Obviously people would rather have the Filet-O-Fish instead.
The McDLT was simply a burger with lettuce and tomato. The burger came in two styrofoam packages, one containing the burger and the other containing the lettuce and tomato to keep the freshness. Of course, many people weren't happy about the styrofoam containers and having to assemble their own burgers.
When McDonald's sells a lobster sandwich for only 7 dollars, you know something has to be wrong. The McLobster, while it claimed to have 100 percent real lobster, was not a win for McDonald's.
We're pretty sure no one goes to McDonald's if they're on a strict diet, so it's no wonder the McLean Deluxe didn't go over too well. The patty was said to be 91 percent fat free and infused with water and seaweed extract.
While this idea may have been good in theory, it definitely didn't play out well. You would shake up fries in a bag of powdered cheese. It may sound good but customers didn't think so.
The Priazzo was the pizzas of all pizzas. Made to imitate a Chicago deep dish pizza, it had two layers of crust and a lot of meat and cheese. Customers didn't like how long it took for it cook so it was discontinued.
The Big 'N' Tasty was made to compete with Burger King's Whopper, but didn't prove to be successful. If customers wanted a Whopper they would go to Burger King. It was later discontinued in 2010.
McDonald's McAfrika was a pita filled with beef, cheese, lettuce and tomato. It was released in Norway during a famine in southern Africa, so needless to say it was a huge disaster.
