Top 10 McDonald’s Menu Items We Wish They’d Bring Back

The first McDonald’s was opened on May 15, 1940, by brothers Richard and Maurice McDonald. When it first opened, McDonald’s was a barbecue restaurant and in the early days, they had 25 items on their menu. However, at the end of World War II, the brothers realized that 80 percent of their sales were hamburgers. So they shut down the restaurant for a few weeks, and reopened with a smaller menu that had just nine items: hamburgers, cheeseburgers, three soft drink flavors available in 12-ounce cups, milk, coffee, potato chips, and pie. The idea behind the new store was to focus on speed and lower prices.

McDonald’s pizza was great and affordable. I can still remember the taste and texture. We had it in BC, Canada up until the late 90s.

Alec Sabin says:

For your Mega Tamago you are over complicating it, as they will still make it for you as a secret menu hack. ask for a quarter pounder with bacon and lettuce, and have them add an egg and you have the mega tamago enjoy

A Ripley’s Believe It Or Not comic book from the seventies said, the snack bar of a movie theater in Iowa sold more pizza in one hour than all McDonald’s combined in 25 years.

I remember, as an early teen in Canada, the promotional campaign for McDonald’s Pizza. The ads talked about how they tried many types of cheese, etc. until they found the ideal recipe. Needless to say I had high hopes. And boy, was I disappointed. I think I only had it once.
