The 10 Biggest Missteps In Fast Food

Fast Food in and of itself is nothing but one big misstep...for western society.
 
Stupid work restrictions, can't read!

Maybe a summary?
Hot on the heels of another McDonald's burger flop, the utterly flavorless "McLean", The Arch Deluxe was hyped up as the adult fast food alternative. A more mature burger for a more mature clientele. Sadly for McDonalds, it was overpriced and tasted like a swamp. It was essentially a Big Mac with a fancier bun and -- in the place of special sauce -- someone ate asparagus and peed on it.
Naturally, what made the Arch Deluxe a colossal failure wasn't the fact that it didn't sell (although it didn't); as mentioned, the McLean couldn't get off those heated steel shelves, either, as has been the case with countless failing fast food items. No, the Arch Deluxe's place in ignominy was secured by a massive accompanying advertising blitz. Not only did McDonald's manage to conceive a bad idea and watch it sink, they had the poor fortune to pay over $100 million dollars in advertising to do it. That's staggering, especially considering that they could have hired me to pee on their Big Macs for free.
 
The arch deluxe was McDonald's attempt at the real King of Burgers, the Whopper.
 
I did eat the Arch Deluxe a couple times. What's the one that's out now...the big 'n tasty? Same thing.
 
I've never heard of either one. What the hell is the McLean? I obviosuly got the description of the Arch Deluxe, be it a very aberrant one, but a description nonetheless.

I agree. I ate alot of it in college before realizing it was the devil. I feel so much healthier overall, both physically and mentally without out it. If I want a burger I make it myself or I get one at a nice restaraunt.
 
Well, when you don't give a rat's ass about your health and your metabolism is high, you normally eat whatever. When you get up in age, like about late 20's you start watching what you do.

It's still not good for you irregardless. No matter how high your metabolism is, you're still f***ing your system to high hell.

Ah, so the Arch is like the Big N Nasty? I see. Eck, no thanks...well, I don't really eat fast food anyway, so, nevermind.

But seriously, what the hell is the McLean!?

The line was first introduced in 1991 with the introduction of the McLean Deluxe, the Arch Deluxe was introduced in 1996 and the others in 1997. Except for the McLean Deluxe, all sandwiches were developed by McDonald's executive chef Chef Andrew Selvaggio.

All sandwiches were served on a bakery style roll and featured better quality ingredients such as whole leaf lettuce.

  • The McLean Deluxe was marketed as a healthy alternative to McDonald's regular menu. It was released in the United States in 1991. It had a reduced fat content compared to other McDonald's hamburgers. This was achieved through the addition of carrageenan to the meat. Despite performing well in taste-tests, it did not sell well, and was dropped from the menu in 1994.[3]
  • The Arch Deluxe was another product to compete against the Burger King Whopper sandwich. It had onions, tomato, ketchup, lettuce, American cheese, and a Chef's sauce which was a Dijon mustard and mayonnaise blend.[2]

When Burger King got rid of the Whopper. People freaked out. "Get me a whopper!"
 
That **** that's out now...Baconater from BK....I don't care, that's like suicide eating that thing. Call me what you want, but I will never eat one of those, even if it makes me less of a man. :o

I believe that was Wendy's:o
 
surprisingly enough, I enjoyed the Arch Deluxe...
 
I didn't like the Arch Deluxe because I always pictured it as a sawed of arch of someone's foot - sandwich. :(
 
When you get up in age, like about late 20's you start watching what you do.

That's cause when you start working full time you barely have any time for exercise and sports. Back in high school and college I worked out every day and played sports two or three times a week. Nowadays I rarely do either. So in order to stay in shape I have to watch what I eat.
 
i'm suprised the hula burger never caught on , the should try again , throw it on the dollar menu , it will sell.
 
krispy kreme didnt die because of the atkins diet, but it was because they ****ed themselves out. it was no longer a kirpsy kreme only thing, you can get them in sheetz, or any gas station for that matter, and all sorts of places. if they had stayed at only in the stores, then the demand for stores would have gone up, but instead sheetz gets the profits. idiot business planning by the top heads.

otherwise funny stuff.
