McDonald's Dropping Angus Burgers

McDonald's is cutting the Angus burger from its menu.

The Oak Brook, Ill.-based company had said earlier this year that it was evaluating whether to continue selling the Angus Third Pounders, which were introduced in 2009 and are among the chain's priciest items. The company also said at the time that it was it was cutting Chicken Selects and Fruit & Walnut Salad.

The changes come as McDonald's looks to keep up with shifting tastes, even as it underscores the affordability of its food. The website BurgerBusiness.com, which reported that the burgers were being dropped earlier Thursday, also said that it learned from McDonald's franchisees that the company intends to expand its line of lower-cost Quarter Pounders in coming months, including an option with bacon.

    So it's dropping the one thing there that's fit for human consumption?

    Their normal burgers are so disgusting I won't eat them even if people for some reason want to go to McDonald's when I'm with them. Chicken Selects were the one kind of OK thing to eat, and people said the Angus burgers were decent.

    I actually kind of gag a little thinking about McDonald's food.

    That's too bad, those things are delicious.

    The walnut and fruit salad was great driving through California on a hot dat.

    Shame really, I did actually like both the Angus and Chicken Selects.

    Perhaps I just have "expensive" tastes.

    I concur. The Angus Mushroom and Cheese gave a renewed hope in humanity.
