Re:Favorite Fast Food Menu Items Discontinued
Wow, what a terrific thread, I am glad it has been "re-activated" with recent posts to have it come back onto page one. I went through the entire 7 pages worth of posts to get up to speed on this provocative journey down memory lane
I am with Westlay from Charleston-IL and my So Cal colleague Cat Tracks, the Carl's Jr California Roast Beef sandwich was dynamite and when they went corporate eliminating them back in the late 70s or ealy 80s, it teed me off so much that after years of being a regular consumer of their Cali roast beef, burgers and hot dogs-which they also stopped serving, I have never returned.
As also mentioned, I miss the original Jack in the Box breakfast croissaant sandwich and their Spanish omelette
The original Mickey Dee fries were so much better, they ranked 2nd in my book after In n Out fries, now they are kaka
The previous Coca Cola was far superior to the current "classic" which although they want you to belive is their previous formula, it is not. My best pal worked at the Coca Cola Botttling plant in Downtown L A when the change over occurred so I got the inside scoop of their plans ahead of time and purchased several cases of Coke before the changeover
I also miss Wendy's birch beer, no longer offered, theirs was a fruity-redddish color style,
as Ricky asked Lucy-"waaaaa appaned" to the Wendy's fish sandwich they had about a year ago?, it as a very tasty and hearty fish filet sandwich that should be returned
When traveling to visit relatives in Metro NYC in the 1960s and 70s, I always enjoyed drinking Nedick's orange drink out of a paper cone container placed into a metal holder and munching a frank with their "Boston" style bun.
I miss Pabst's premium beer, Andeker-far better than Michelob
Bring back Helm's Bakery........
Finally, although not food or drink related, I miss the original Van's canvas sneakers with their legendary ground-glass soles, the onliest sneeks I have ever worn that would have the tops wear out before the soles-even when using them to play basketball on outdoor courts. When Mr Van passed away in the late 70s and the children turned over the firm to corporate America franchises after being a local So Cal phenom, they stopped making the ground -glass soles, what a shame!
