I miss the Burger King 'burger bundles'.

They came in 3s and were tiny little burgers in a box. They were fun - I used to order them all the time when I was younger.

They've recently added "Burger Shots" to the menu.

Yeah, and they're crap.  They don't separate the meat or the buns properly.

Whataburger's A-1 Thick & Hearty Burger (less the grilled onions).  A-1 has apparently signed up with BK on the Steakhouse burger, which has the sauce with crispy onions and mayo!   puke  Either/or would be fine, but both is just wrong.  So it's unlikely that I'll see my A-1 Whataburger ever again.

The Thick & Hearty Burger is back at Whataburger!  W00t!  Unfortunately, the sign tells me that it's leaving after December 21st ... FOREVER!   crybaby

Hey! Just wanted to say to fellow McDLT fans -- Burger King has in a way dredged the idea back up as a way of delivering burgers without them getting soggy. Check out this Wash. Post impressions piece of a delivered Burger King order (they are test marketing the idea in a few areas):

Having it your way at home: Taste-testing Burger King delivery
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/rosenwald-md/post/having-it-your-way-at-home-taste-testing-burger-king-delivery/2012/01/17/gIQA1Dpx5P_blog.html
Quote
I opened the burger container but only saw the lower half — the patty topped with pickles, onions and ketchup. The other half, with the bread top and lettuce and mayo, was hidden behind a trap door. The reason should be obvious to even amateur burger eaters: putting the whole sandwich together for even a five-minute drive would result in a soggy mess.

Nice move, Burger King.
Familiar, eh?  icon_smile

Now it's probably an ecological nightmare of black plastic that most places likely can't recycle. It's basically like a typical plastic burger container with a third panel folding in between that separates the bun/burger/various toppings from the bun-top/lettuce/mayo. So, different than the McDLT's famously long styrofoam container, but a somewhat similar concept.  icon_smile

If it interests you, you can check out here to see if your area is among the initial test markets:

*If you're worried about using your street address (junk mail etc.) there, maybe try a work address or just some local business in your area.

I still miss the Kewpee Deluxe. Kewpee's was big in MI until Mr Fables took over most of their locations.

Dog n Suds made a helluva hot dog, too, but the real attraction was the roller-skating carhops.

For a short time, Burger King had both sourdough burgers and some kind of taco-like thing, and I loved them both.  Then, they cruelly took them away, never to return again  crybaby

I haven't had one since childhood, but it was my favorite burger way back when. Their sauce had green olives in it, IIRC. The wiki tells me that there was very little standardization from one Kewpees to the next, though, so it could have been a local thing.

The A&W chain pretty much ate Dog n Suds's lunch, although there are still a few hanging on...including one in Lansing, MI. I must seek it out if I ever go back there. I remember it for its root beer floats and footlongs.

Theres 2 items I miss dearly.

1. McDonald's McDLT. A hot/cold burger you finished yourself. The bottom bun and meat was hot on one side of the container and the veggies and top on the other cool. They say it was dumped because of it's special styro container. Now the hot/cool thing wasn't a big deal and I could care less about it's container. The burger though had a very unique taste that no other McD burger has ever matched. It was special. I dont see why they cant bring it back in their current packaging.

For some reason, we never looked up the McDLT ad videos....

McDLT 1985 TV ad
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zL2c6NSVAvA
*I do remember a lot of "why wouldn't you put the cheese on the hot side?" harumphing. I dunno. It didn't bother me back then.  icon_smile

McDLT TV ad with a hilariously hairy, jumpy, dancing and singing (!) Jason Alexander ('George' in Seinfeld)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTSdUOC8Kac
*Since the 1985 TV ad above was apparently the first one, in late 1985, this one's probably from early 1986.
===============

Saw some other priceless videos and ads there, like:

first Chicken McNuggets ad, featuring The McNuggets Song! (they were fried with beef tallow fat back then, which provided amazing flavor but pretty nasty fat, as I recall)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nY1CCCydhSM&feature=related

1983 Chicken McNuggets ad
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7cZRZp-BfU&feature=related

McSpaghetti (tested, presumably didn't catch on)

McD's had a burger that was made with seaweed (carageenan) to cut calories -- ah, google tells me it was the McLean Deluxe and that it was the chain's most dramatic failure. I didn't think it was that bad...although I wouldn't go so far as to say that I miss it, either.

Oh, gawd, yes, I remember that tasting like cardboard.   icon_smile Koreans use seaweed as tasty wrap as does most sushi. But clearly it doesn't belong in a burger.

It's only in France, but would you grow to miss the...

McBaguette?
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204778604577241312286387028.html
Quote
For six weeks starting April 18, the 1,228 McDonald's restaurants across France will feature the McBaguette, with a burger topped with French-made Emmental cheese and mustard. It will replace the chain's current special offer here: three limited-edition burgers featuring locally produced cheeses.
...
McDonald's foray into baguette sandwiches could give it more pricing power. The McBaguette will be sold for €4.50, more than a euro above the average price of a sandwich in France and within the range of McDonald's premium burgers like the Big Tasty. McDonald's said it could introduce the baguette burger again if the initial six-week run is a success.
Sacribleu! It looks a little long to me. There's got to be more than one burger on it. Price seems to be about U.S. $5.96.

I'm envious. I can't even get Swiss cheese at a Subway.  icon_razz

I sometimes consider drive-thrus to embody the epitome of laziness, but now people too lazy to even step out of their vehicle to stuff their maw with processed food can now have it delivered to their very home.  I wonder if we'll see an associated increase in the incidence rate of having to remove people through the walls of their homes. 

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the occasional round of fast food, especially when drunk or hung over, and fast food delivery would certainly be a safer alternative to intoxicated road trips to the local BK's, but ultimately I can't help but consider this yet another discouraging indicator of our society's ongoing health demise.

Really? 

That's the basis of your reasoning to accept this newest fast food development?

Outside of eating an entire meatapalooza pizza solo, yes, this is worse than pizza delivery.  Odds are the people taking advantage of fast food delivery aren't opting for the granola or salad options.  Or ordering a pizza to share.

Sure, it's a stereotype, but our culture does little to dispute or discredit it.

"Substantially" is an arbitrary term.  Pizza is a healthier alternative to Burger King, within reason of course.  But you can make anything unhealthy if desired.  Regardless, the point isn't comparing existing delivery options, but addressing the addition of yet another unnecessary and unhealthy option for the already lazy and likely obese.  We move yet another step along the already embarrassing downward spiral of American gluttony combined with instant gratification.

It's a poor direction for a society already losing the battle against obesity.

Still, this is an unnecessary digression away from lamenting the loss of past favorites once featured on fast food menus.

Inherent dietary perfection is not indicative or even necessary to achieve a healthy lifestyle.  Nor is perfection a measurement of one's knowledge or success in the area.  While you may find my lifestyle "interesting", I find your misinformation merely amusing.

I find the interesting thing is many places considered "better for you" are generally NOT, from nutritional standpoint. I love Panera, but a lot of folks will buy like a full size steak panini or italian sandwich or something, and then the nutritional values (sodium especially) just go entirely out of orbit. I finally got into the habit of getting a half sandwich with a salad of some sort.

A few years ago I saw this obviously unhealthily overweight teenaged guy order two footlong meatball subs for himself. I won't even guess at the nutritional value there.

Most burrito places (Chipotle, Qdoba, Moe's etc.), if you actually eat an entire full size burrito, it's insane. It's sometimes 2,000 calories, and enough sodium for two days, etc. But I see people stuff their faces with that all the time, assuming cause it's not a fried burger, that it's "good" for them. It's really not that simple.

There's stuff I loved at McDonald's that I just won't eat anymore (the 1/3 lb. Angus burgers for example) cause the sodium, cholesterol, saturated fat is out of control. Which isn't to say a Big Mac or Filet O' Fish is health food cuisine, but I think it's fine as a once a week treat.

As for BK Delivery, I just think it's fun, and I had earlier mentioned here that Wash. Post blogger's try of it. And the packaging really is about as close as I've seen to the McDLT that we've been nostalgic here for (not that anyone suggests bringing back gloriously unrecyclable styrofoam packaging icon_razz)

As for BK nutrition, best bet is probably getting something kinda smaller (Whopper Jr.) and skip the sauces, mayo etc:

Most burrito places (Chipotle, Qdoba, Moe's etc.), if you actually eat an entire full size burrito, it's insane. It's sometimes 2,000 calories, and enough sodium for two days, etc. But I see people stuff their faces with that all the time, assuming cause it's not a fried burger, that it's "good" for them. It's really not that simple.

Do you even research some of the stuff you talk about when it comes to food?  A full size Chipotle et al. burrito is nowhere near 2000 calories.

I do find it interesting that you're vilifying society for poor ideas when it comes to food when you aren't exactly perfect when it comes to healthy food/drink choices, but as you said, we're digressing from the topic at hand.

Inherent dietary perfection is not indicative or even necessary to achieve a healthy lifestyle.  Nor is perfection a measurement of one's knowledge or success in the area.  While you may find my lifestyle "interesting", I find your misinformation merely amusing.

Meh.

No benefit to be had from refuting misconceptions you feel obliged to cling to.  As long as it helps you sleep more soundly, as rest is an important element in overall quality of health, and ignorance is said to be bliss.

Thanks for the confirmation of a long held suspicion.

Pork donuts at Dunkin D's?
Quote
Pork donuts may not sound good to you, but in China, Dunkin Donuts is hoping they'll be a hit.

"Doughnuts are a very flexible product," Dunkin's CEO Nigel Travis told Reuters. "You can do savory doughnuts, you can do shredded pork ... we also have a range of other savory products that we have been testing and introducing country by country."

Plus, anyone who has ever feasted on a pork bun or, heck, uses cream cheese for both breakfast and dessert knows the line between sweet and savory is only as limited as your imagination.

To really drive the new snacks home, Dunkin has recruited a formidable spokesperson: Miami Heat star Lebron James. You may laugh, but James reportedly has a huge following in China.
Mmmmmmmm.... I think I just vomited in my mouth.  drool icon_razz
