Many people are truly disappointed about the discontinuation of the Hi-C drink. But I am sure that people will be surprised by the Sprite TropicBerry. Its good to try new things. Do you remember other food or drink choices there were at McDonald’s and are no longer?

Some of the food items that got discontinued just either were not selling or they were just horrible ideas.  Here are just some of them:

  1. Chicken Selects – Sales did not keep up and were discontinued in 2013.
  2. Supersize Option – Was not a good idea as they wanted to promote a healthier menu.
  3. Angus Burgers – They thought this item would be a high end item on the menu but sales were down. These burgers were discontinued in 2013.
  4. Big & Tasty – Tried to be like the Whopper at Burger King. Off the menu in 2011.
