The McDLT was a stupid idea. What's so great about keeping the burger hot and the garnish cold? I've never heard anyone complain about all the ingredients of a sandwich being served at the same temperature. The gimmick packaging must have cost more than the food.

Sounds like a great meal. I'll be getting you one of these for your birthday.

The McDLT as a sandwich was a good idea, but the packaging didn't work.

I have a defibrillator on my Christmas list.

A few years ago they tried out McWings. Good stuff, but apparently didn't sell.

The best thing on the menu is the original Cheeseburger. Small, but tasty. I've heard these referred to as "fun size."

According to the latest reports, that is now Mexico.

No, I'm not from Mexico.

Too true. Long John Silvers for one, though all the ones around here are paired with an A&W, KFC or another Pepsico brand. And I love LJS fish & chicken.

Where I've actually gotten food poisoning from is Popeye's & Pizza Hut. Not sure if I've ever tried the McD's fish sandwich.

Filet O Fish has cheese because cheese is awesome. And it hides the taste of the fish.

I'm pretty sure i got a clogged artery just from reading this.

I worked at both McD's and Pizza Hut in high school, back in the dark ages.

All the food was delivered frozen, to ensure uniformity and price point, I'm sure. The exception was the pizza crusts at the Hut which were made fresh every day. But that was then.

It wouldn't surprise me if nowadays the McD fish is partially or even fully cooked before being frozen to avoid the gastric anomalies.

Re: Why does the Filet O Fish have cheese?

I have never eaten a Filet-O-Fish, nor would I ever, but I don't see the big deal about putting cheese on seafood. I've seen it put on chicken, why not fish?

Now cheese on APPLE PIE, however, that's another matter.

As far as McDonald's goes the Filet-O-Fish is one of their better sandwiches, as far as the cheese just order it without.

Re: Why does the Filet O Fish have cheese?

I've never talked to anyone who didn't like it. Still not sure why it vanished. Too low of a profit margin maybe? Too expensive? I was a kid so I barely remember it other than ordering it every time and giving up the option of getting a kids meal (and a toy!)

I ate almost every night during play practice in high school, or when I stayed after to work on the paper. I think they got rid of it because it was just too expensive to produce vs. how much they were selling. I don't recall what the price-point of it was but it was obviously a bit higher than everything else on their menu. But, man, it really was a good sandwich.

Wikipedia says the failure was a combination of an ill-advised marketing campaign and the burger being too expensive.
