“Hey, you say you’re gettin’ tired of lettuce and tomato hamburgers in this town that don’t quite make it?”

We’re not sure about you, but whenever we went to McDonald’s, we’d get pretty ticked off when the lettuce in our Big Mac was limp and luke warm. Seriously! It’s not like McDonald’s is some run-of-the-mill fast food joint, it’s a–– oh, right. It is.

On one hand, you can’t fault the Golden Arch geniuses for coming up with the idea of a burger served in such a way that the hot (clap! clap!) stays hot, and the cool (clap! clap!) stays cool. But if we really cared that much about our ‘lettuce and tomato hamburger’ (like anyone calls it that), we wouldn’t frequent a McDonald’s, for heaven’s sake.

Still, Constanza was pretty peppy back then, huh?

The McDLT was launched in 1984, and by December 1990, it was gone. Mickey D’s said it was because of their decision to phase out the styrofoam packing (which was crucial to the McDLT’s success), but we think people just preferred Big Macs and Quarter Pounders to a ‘lettuce and tomato hamburger’.

We ♥ the McDLT.
