Fast Food Fails

McLean Deluxe

Traveling to a fast food restaurant to grab a diet item honestly defeats the purpose of gorging on fat, calories, and deliciousness. McDonald’s didn’t mind selling the McLean Deluxe in an effort to keep customers who cared more about watching their figure than taste. The McLean Deluxe made its debut in 1991 to fit in with the craze for low-fat foods. Once word got out that the McLean Deluxe contained seaweed and was sorely lacking in flavor, it flopped hard.
