Food·Posted on 15 Nov 202127 McDonald's Menu Items That People Will Probably Never Get To Enjoy Ever AgainTwo words: Bubblegum McFlurry.by Isha BassiEntertainment ProducerFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. Pasta Zoo and Sipahh straws Flickr: Rinoa / Via Flickr: rinoa, McDonald's What it was: Little bits of animal-shaped ravioli, served with "goo sauce" (tomato sauce) and tongs (to pick up, dip and eat the pasta) in a hippo-shaped box. It also came with a Sipahh straw, which would flavour the milk.Why we need it back: Sure, it probably won't taste as good as we all remember, but it's all about the nostalgia and fun that comes with eating Pasta Zoo (the tongs!). Also, the kids today are totally missing out! 2. Bubblegum McFlurry Flickr: a3aanse / Via Flickr: a3aanse What it was: Soft serve, blue bubblegum sauce and marshmallows. Why we need it back: I feel personally attacked by Macca's because I always wanted to try this flavour, but never got the chance to because it was RUDELY taken away. Rumour is that this is one of the best McFlurry flavours to exist though! 3. Sweet Chilli Chicken Wrap McDonald's What it was: Crispy chicken breast with a sweet chilli sauce, mayo, lettuce, cucumber, served in a tortilla wrap.Why we need it back: Sometimes you go to Macca's and you're craving something a little bit ~healthier~, even though it's fast food at the end of the day. This is where the McWraps came in — delicious, satisfying and filled with an extra bit of salad to help you feel a little less guilty for stuffing your face. 4. McFeast Flickr: Chris Bloom / Via Flickr: bigshock, Flickr: Like_the_grand_canyon / Via Flickr: like_the_grand_canyon What it was: A beef patty, lettuce, tomato, cheese, onions, pickles, three sauces (mustard, tomato sauce and a "McFeast deluxe sauce") — all served on a sesame seed bun.Why we need it back: The McFeast has been a fan-favourite ever since it debuted on the Macca's menu way back in the 1990s. There was a reason Macca's removed this one so quietly — they knew the uproar that would follow. 5. Loaded fries (including both the gravy and truffle mayo and parmesan flavours) McDonald's What it was: Basically, McDonald's chips — but made even better with addition toppings, like gravy or truffle-flavoured mayo and parmesan cheese).Why we need it back: Late-night Macca's runs were made that much better when you were stuffing your gob full of gravy-topped chips. It was the PERFECT thing to eat after having one too many at the pub. 6. McOz Flickr: klew97 / Via Flickr: klew97 What it was: A beef patty, fried egg, beetroot, tomato, lettuce, cheese, onions, mustard and tomato sauce on a sesame seed bun.Why we need it back: I have memories of my mum ordering the McOz because she loved beetroot, so quite frankly it's rude of Macca's to deny my mum — as well as the rest of Australia — from enjoying this classic Aussie burger. 7. "The Dog" Happy Meal Toys McDonald's, Gumtree What it was: These adorable toys called "The Dog", which you received when ordering a Happy Meal.Why we need it back: I don't know about the rest of you, but I feel like Happy Meal toys have gone down the drain. Like, when I was a kid we had these super cute "The Dog" toys — and you would be so keen on collecting all of them, that you would ask your parents to get extra when ordering your Happy Meal (from memory it would cost $2 to get an additional toy). 8. Custard Pies McDonald's, @w.de.arimasu / Via instagram.com What it was: Crispy pastry with a hot custard filling. Why we need it back: Does this really need to be explained? My mouth is already salivating at the thought of biting into one of these. 9. McVeggie View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @sydney_burger_boy What it was: A vegetable patty, cheese, lettuce, mayo and pickles in a sesame seed bun.Why we need it back: It's absurd that a fast food chain as big as Macca's doesn't have a regular vegetarian — let alone a vegan option — on the menu. It's 2021, folks! Get to it. 10. Chicken 'N' Mayo Burger McDonald's What it was: A chicken patty, lettuce and mayo served in a soft bun — the sort you would get if you ordered a Filet-O-Fish. Why we need it back: Part of the "Loose Change" menu, the chicken and mayo burger was a delish and easy snack that only set people back $2. That's right, TWO DOLLARS. 11. Mocha Frappé Flickr: Willis Lam / Via Flickr: 85567416@N03 What it was: Chocolate and coffee blended with ice, served with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate.Why we need it back: I had to check the McDonald's Australia website multiple times to confirm that mocha frappés were no longer sold because it's just not right. Like, it's a staple of any cafe menu, so what's the deal McCafe? You've got regular mochas, so why can't you turn them into frappés again??? 12. Spicy McNuggets McDonald's What it was: McNuggets, but ~spicy~ and they were also served with a chilli dipping sauce.Why we need it back: As someone who regularly enjoys spicy food, I'll say it here and now that if Macca's bring these back, my McNugget consumption will go through the roof — because damn, they tasted good. 13. Shaker Fries View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @foodfindsgeelong What it was: You added seasoning and your chips to a bag, shook them up and voilà — shaker fries (or chips, as we say in Australia). Why we need it back: They were so fun and that extra bit of seasoning really took Macca's chips (already delish on their own) to a whole new level. 14. Gourmet Creations range McDonald's What it was: A burger range which had fancy ingredients, like aioli, caramelised onions and brioche buns. Included in the range was: Gourmet Classic Angus, Gourmet Angus Cheeseburger, Gourmet Angus Truffle Cheese, Gourmet Homestyle Angus, Gourmet Classic Chicken and Gourmet Chicken Caesar.Why we need it back: The gourmet creations were legitimately good and the perfect thing to eat if you felt like a fancy burger, but didn't want to pay an arm and leg for it (I'm looking at you, overpriced cafes charging me over $20 for a simple burg!!!). 15. Spicy Jalapeño Burger McDonald's What it was: Grilled or crispy chicken, shredded lettuce, jalapeños and jalapeño sauce on a sesame seed bun.Why we need it back: I've said it once and I'll say it again — more spicy options at McDonald's. The public can handle it! 16. All-day breakfast Flickr: Brian Chow / Via Flickr: free-stuff What it was: The ability to get McMuffins, hotcakes and other delish Macca's breakfast faves all day long.Why we need it back: Because sometimes you feel like hotcakes for lunch and there's nothing wrong with that. Plus, if you've had a huge night of drinking, there's no way you're making it to Macca's in time for that 10:30am breakfast cut-off. 17. McRib McDonald's What it was: A pork patty shaped like a mini rack of ribs, BBQ sauce, onions and pickles, served on a sandwich roll. Why we need it back: The last time this iconic menu item was seen on Australian shores was back in 2012 — so I would say we're long overdue for the McRib to make a comeback. 18. El Maco View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @miwa_sinner What it was: A beef patty, cheese, tomato, lettuce, sour cream and El Maco sauce, served on a sesame seed bun.Why we need it back: That El Maco sauce — enough said. 19. Chicken Big Mac View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @foodietrails What it was: Identical to a usual Big Mac, but instead of beef patties, it has two McChicken patties.Why we need it back: As someone who loves a McChicken, these were fucking awesome. It was the perfect marriage of two of McDonald's most well-known burgers, and I don't see why they can't make it a permanent thing. It's just swapping out the patties! 20. Chocolate Fudge Brownie McFlurry View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @zofisha What it was: Soft serve, chocolate syrup and brownie chunks.Why we need it back: There have been many good McFlurry flavours and this is definitely up near the top. Those brownie chunks combined with the Macca's soft serve was everything. 21. McDouble Flickr: Like_the_grand_canyon / Via Flickr: like_the_grand_canyon What it was: Two beef patties, a slice of cheese, pickles, chopped onions, tomato sauce and mustard.Why we need it back: Another staple of the "Loose Change" menu, the McDouble — priced at only $2 — gave you twice the meat without asking for twice the price. 22. Banana Caramel Pie View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @kelly_azuma What it was: Crisp pastry filled with a banana custard and toffee-caramel filling.Why we need it back: The banana and caramel combo (plus, let's not forget about that pastry!) was a match made in heaven. 23. Brownie Melts McDonald's / @urmcdonalds / Via Twitter: @urmcdonalds What it was: Brownies drizzled in hot chocolate and icing.Why we need it back: These were revoltingly sweet, but in the best way possible. 24. Shrek Green Apple-Flavoured Frozen Fanta McDonald's What it was: Green apple-flavoured Frozen Fanta! It was added to the menu to celebrate the release of Shrek Forever After in 2010.Why we need it back: For those that never got the chance to try the green apple-flavoured Frozen Fanta, it was truly something else. Refreshing, delicious, sweet and also sort of tangy — it was a god-level tier flavour that I would happily drink all through summer and winter. 25. Shrek Swamp Sludge McFlurry Reddit: u/antdancast / Via reddit.com What it was: Soft serve, chunks of chocolate fudge brownie and green M&Ms. Like the green apple-flavoured Frozen Fanta, it was a menu item to promote Shrek.Why we need it back: If you're a fan of choc-mint (hello Mint Slice lovers!), this would have been your fave McFlurry flavour. It had brownies, it had M&Ms and it tasted SO DAMN GOOD. 26. Mozzarella Sticks View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @angela_marie05 What it was: Mozzarella pieces that have been breaded in a golden crust and then fried until perfection.Why we need it back: It was always a gamble on whether or not you would get a decent cheese pull, but regardless these mozzie sticks tasted bomb. 27. And finally, BLT McMuffin View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @zebravans What it was: Bacon, lettuce, tomato, egg, mayo and cheese, served on a toasted English muffin.Why we need it back: I swear I've never seen these at Macca's before, but an old Frugal Feeds deal confirms that this mouth-watering McMuffin once existed in Australia. Besides sounding delicious, Macca's already adds bacon and egg to other McMuffins — so all this needs is some lettuce, tomato, mayo and cheese, which is surely doable. Which discontinued McDonald's menu item do you wish would make a comeback?
