I got a little nostalgic when I heard that Taco Bell was bringing back its volcano menu from 1995. I also got a little misty when I saw KFC bringing back the Double Down. Who needs bread when you can have two fried chicken patties surrounding your bacon and cheese? If that doesn't make you yearn for the good old days, then I don't know what does.
I never understood why fast food places come up with these great sandwich ideas, which have us coming back for more, only to cut them off and leave us salivating and disappointed.
Once upon a time, Dunkin Donuts, which is a huge culprit in the world of discontinuing sandwiches, had a pork roll, egg, and cheese on a croissant. It was heaven in a wrapper, and I looked forward each morning to get it on my way home from doing my overnight shift in Philadelphia. Then just like that, one morning it was gone.
But what if you could bring them back? I asked my listeners and social following, if you could bring back a fast food sandwich that no longer exists, what would you want?

Bring back the normal size again. I haven’t had a McDonald’s cheeseburger in years. Bought one with my Shamrock ☘️ water aka shake. The burger was 1/4 inch thick and the size of a half dollar. SMH John Skinski
