The McChikenator thread got me nostalgic for some fast food items I've enjoyed that are no longer with us, or distribution is isolated(see #3).

1. Burger Buddies - from Burger King, two little cheese bugers 'stuck' together on one bun - like the figure "8" from above.
2. Sante Fe Chalupa - from Taco Bell , corn/black bean relish and a 'special' sauce they no longer carry on anything.
3. Chili Cheese Burrito - also Taco Bell, at a stop in Savannah Georgia a couple years ago they had this elusive burrito, but they stopped serving it in FL a looong time ago(by my 26 year-old standards). It's what it sounds like, chili and cheese with onions in a shell. High school cafeteria sold these and got me hooked.

If I had to bring one back it would be #2, I loved those things! I don't eat fast food that often, but it has its place. My favorite meal is probably Vietnamese summer rolls and pho, if I had to eat one meal for the rest of my life that would be it. But late night, or on the road, fast food has a place in my stomach. And to all those that think McD's and the like are evil, I say this: they only sell what we choose to buy.

So, what are your favorites that are no longer available?

Can you still get the McRib? I used to love the McRib.

I read a blog post a few weeks ago about the 10 Worst Items on fast food and one listed there was the Arch Delux from McDonalds. Fine... But I liked it.

Not exactly on topic, but am I the only one who HATES that Taco Bell puts a ton of good things on their "special" menu to have them ripped away and never return? I thought the Cheesy Beefy Melt was one of the best menu items AT Taco Bell. At least McDonalds is routine. :P Everyone knows the McRib will be back some time in a year...

EDIT: Didn't see Bird's post... So I guess ALMOST everyone knows it comes back each year. :P

They have em here in the Midwest for a limited time (again).

They go away. They make a breif appearance and everyone lines up.

Don't they do that up "there"? Maybe cuz St. Louis is ranked one of the top-5 "fat" cities in the US...they figured it's easy pickins.

H. Salt's cole slaw. I used to buy a two piece dinner and an extra pint of slaw. Last time I had it, it was really bad. The chain is about dead.

Oh yeah, this thread is right up my alley!


1. Crinkle fries from Carl's Jr.
2. "Wild" sauce from Taco Bell.
3. (not really 'fast food' per se, but sadly missed) The Silver Goblet Milkshake from Bob's Big Boy. It was real with the consistency of butter and you ate it with a spoon.


Why must they change the things we love?

Hell yeah on the Chili Cheese Burrito from Taco Bell. Those things ruled!!
Luckily they have the 1/ 2 pound Potato and Beef Burrito. They taste even better the next day after you microwave them. I guess they need to age a little, just like a fine wine.

The McRib was my favorite "altered mental state" food. I haven't seen them around here in a few years though

They still have Wild sauce here in Chicago.

I miss the Cheddar Melt (or whatever the hell it was called) from McD's.
