Enjoying your seasonal Shamrock Shake and some of the newly-widespread Fish McBites (or even the still-in-testing Chicken Wings?). With some new succesful treats, it naturally falls to the Golden Arches to take away a few items; their menu isn’t limitless, after all.
To keep up with the times and a rotating menu, they’ll be taking out the Chicken Selects and the Fruit & Walnut Salad, while keeping an eye on their Angus burgers. The Chicken Selects are their premium chicken tenders, effectively an adult variation on the Chicken McNugget, while the Fruit & Walnut Salad is just slices of green and red apples, candied walnuts, grapes, and yogurt.
McDonald’s doesn’t seem to be adding anything to the menu, despite the addition of a post-midnight menu. The removal of the Chicken Selects seems to take away a few options from their Australian menu, and the Japanese-led shrimp and pork burgers don’t seem to be stepping up to replace the possible loss of the Angus burgers.
Huffington Post reports that the Angus Third Pounders are currently safe, but they are “evaluating options.”
While these menu items were nice at rounding out McDonald’s menu with some more premium, theoretically healthier options, they never seemed to fully catch on with the fast food populace like the Big Mac or Chicken McNuggets. Will you bemoan their disappearance, or will it just give you an idea to try something else on the menu?
