Here at foodBlog we missed the McPizza-we did not know it even existed and now it is gone...
"All good things must end, and so it is with one of the oddest items to ever grace a McDonald’s menu: McPizza. The all-American culinary fail-safe was introduced with much fanfare in the ’80s, and two locations — in Pomeroy, Ohio, and Spencer, West Virginia, run by the same franchisee, Greg Mills — never took them off the menu. At least, that was the case until yesterday, when the era was forced to end by decree from McCorporate.
An official statement from McDonald’s explained this move was to streamline the stores’ menus, though both locations would “continue to offer a wide variety of items for our customers to try and enjoy.” Mills clearly wasn’t happy about corporate’s eighty-sixing of his nostalgic menu item. According to the local paper, the Pomeroy store posted a sign that read:
'Effective August 31st we will no longer be allowed to sell McPizza. This decision was made by McDonald’s Corporate office, Not your local staff. It was our Pleasure and Honor to be one of only two McDonalds in The USA to carry this Great product for the past 15 years. We apologize to you our valued Guest and thank you for your support of McPizza over the past 15 years.'" Get the whole scoop on the death of the McPizza at Grub Street
