Don't stop at McRib; bring back McDLT
by Todd Franko (Contact) | 340 entries
McDonald's announced today that the McRib sandwich is coming back.
It launched in 1982 and came off the national market in 1994. There’s apparently a fan club for it, with Facebook pages and such. So congrats to them.
I want the McDLT to come back: “The hot stays hot and the cool stays crisp.”
Actor Jason Alexander touted in a commercial that it could be the greatest hamburger ever. I believed him back then in 1985. Then McD’s moved on to other varieties of the stoic lettuce, tomato and cheese burgers — Big N’ Tasty, Big Xtra, The Boss and others.
Apparently, it was the novel two-compartment packaging that did it in as America discovered granola and green living in the 90s.
But the McDLT always stuck with me. Perhaps it was Jason Alexander dancing in a “Miami Vice” jacket.
Please come back ...
