McDonald's dumps Chicken Selects from menu
The company is also booting the apple walnut salad. Is there anything good left to eat?
Judging from the outcry on Twitter, the answer seems to be no.
"McDonald's discontinued Chicken Selects. . . My life is officially over," wrote one dismayed customer on the social-media site. "I guess I'll never be eating McDonald's ever again just (because) they are no longer making Chicken Selects," another customer wrote.
The company touts its Chicken Selects as "premium finger food for picky people." They were made from chicken breast filets and ran about 380 calories for a three-piece serving.
But apparently, picky people were just a little too picky. One McDonald's franchisee said that the Chicken Selects didn't sell well enough nationally, The Chicago Tribune reports. A spokeswoman confirmed to the newspaper that Chicken Selects and apple walnut salad will be cut, and that the company is reviewing options for its Angus Third Pounder.
The Tribune speculates that the move is clearing the way for new products, perhaps a McWrap sandwich with grilled or fried chicken. McDonald's has also been testing chicken wings at some restaurants.
Which returns us to a question asked all the time by calorie-counting parents rushing their kids' Happy Meal orders through the McDonald's drive-thru: Is there anything on this menu for me to eat?
Whatever ... frozen food section ... Tyson bag-o-chicken tenders ... done.
it has been proven time and time again that MOST folk who eat at fast food places DO NOT BUY these "healthy" alternatives. the onyl reason places really have em is to appease the assanyne minority of ****s who if they have such a damn problem with fast food should just not eat there. they should keep their ****ing mouths and opinions to themselves anbd let people who like fast food eat it.
