Does anybody want McDonald’s McSpaghetti tonight? … yeah us neither.

Sometimes ideas sound way better in your head than when you say them out loud, but sometimes bad ideas follow through. Fast-food chains have a ton of them that totally flopped and they don’t want you to remember them. Luckily for us, we have a full list of fast food failures just for you. So make sure to grab some Pepto-Bismal, cause you might need it after reading these.

McDonald’s Hula Burger – This one’s an oldie. It came out in 1960, and it was a pineapple-and-cheese burger, but without the beef. I didn’t even know that pineapple goes well with cheese. I mean, does it? Just because you can make pineapple pizza work, that doesn’t mean you can just put that tropical fruit on whatever you want. Come o, guys.

McDonald’s McDLT – Brought down by environmental activists, this burger had the lettuce and tomato come in a separate styrofoam container for “maximum freshness.” Sounds pretty wasteful to me, and it also sounds like way too much work for fast food.

McDonald’s Arch Deluxe  – This is considered one of McDonald’s most expensive flops of all time. The burger featured Arch sauce, a mayo-mustard combo, and… well that’s it. I guess it was suppose to be some kind of secret sauce, but no-one seemed to be into it.

McDonald’s McSpaghetti – Oh boy.

Taco Bell Waffle Taco – Ah, Taco Bell. Now, these guys have come up with some ideas that lived on, like those Doritos tacos. But sometimes it takes some bad ideas to eventually come up with the ones that work. The Waffle Taco came out in 2013, and it was basically a waffle with egg and sausage inside of it. Seriously, what are these people smoking?

Taco Bell Seafood Salad – Here they go again. It was meant to compete with McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish, but customers didn’t seem to crave the shrimp, whitefish, and snow crab mix. Taco Bell, guys, stick to the tacos, please.

Burger King Enormous Omelet Sandwhich – This one got in bid trouble because of its plethora of health concerns. This bad boy had 330 milligrams of cholesterol and 1,940 milligrams of sodium. So next time you stop by Burger King and ask for one of these bad boys, I’m sorry, I’m afraid you can’t have it your way.

Burger King Satisfries – The name of this one is so silly that I would honestly be interested in trying it. Burger King wanted to create an a new batch of french fries to replace their fattening fries, but they didn’t sell.

Dominos Oreo Dessert Pizza – Some of you might actually remember this bad boy. It came out in 2007, but it got dropped because it was waaaay too sweet. Oreos work as a milkshake, they work as a batch of ice-cream, but pizza? …mmmm, how about no.
