The Most Disastrous Fast Food Menu Fails of All Time


In many ways, fast food chains are like reality TV celebrities: we cheer for them when they succeed, but when they fail miserably we secretly have a chuckle at their expense. Here are 14 of the most embarrassing failures in the history of fast food.

The Most Disastrous Fast Food Menu Fails of All Time (Slideshow)

When a fast food chain’s executives decide to introduce a new menu item, a lengthy, expensive process is set in motion. It’s not like somebody pushes a button at headquarters and the new item just appears on menus system-wide; millions of dollars need to be spent on market research, development, ingredient sourcing, recipe testing, staff training, and product rollout, not to mention marketing and advertising. Every new item is a gamble, and it’s not always one that pays off.

Some chains, like In-N-Out, are perfectly content to stick with a simple, unchanging menu, and some customers are perfectly content to not try anything new. But at some point, every chain gets the itch to roll out something different, something that might tap into the zeitgeist at just the right moment, and fly out of the kitchen.

Sometimes chains strike gold with a new release; just look at Taco Bell’s now-legendary Doritos Locos Tacos, which generated more than a billion dollars in revenue for the chain within months of its release. But for every Doritos Locos, there are 10 Pizza Hut Priazzos. Read on to learn about 14 fast food items that those chains probably wish you would completely forget about.

This is an interesting choice but maybe we should call it the champagne of lunches?

This molten ball of fire and starch is supposedly a baked potato. It's kind of terrifying but we also can't look away. Neither could the Reddit user who posted it, apparently: "All I wanted for lunch was a baked potato."
