Fast Food Fails

There’s nothing more American than grabbing a quick bite to eat at a fast-food restaurant. Unfortunately, some fast food items became disastrous one-hit wonders instead of hitting the spot when hungry. Even fast-food champions like McDonald’s, Burger King, and Pizza Hut made some unbelievable food fails worth mentioning. Don’t worry, none of the following items are available on the menu, so your tummy has nothing to fear.

Seafood Salad

Taco Bell has been the fast-food mecca for late-night runs for burritos, nachos, and tacos since its California inception in 1962. When Taco Bell decided to launch a seafood salad in a crispy taco shell, filled with snow crab, shrimp, lettuce, tomato, cheese, green onions, and black olives, they had customers running far away from the border. Even more surprising, the release of a seafood salad was Taco Bell’s solution to competing with McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich.
