Failed Food Launches

ShortList Magazine put together a list of foods that didn't catch on. Do you recall the McLobster? I don't. I remember EZ Squirt, but I never tried it. Never wanted to.
Last time I checked (lie: I never have) people have always been happy with the colour of ketchup. Tomatoes are red. Ketchup, made from tomatoes, is also red. Move on. Heinz, the people who should really know about these things, decided that it would be necessary to bring out green, purple, blue and 'mystery' coloured ketchup turning a popular sauce into a terrifying experiment. Children and the colour-blind were nonplussed. The rest of humanity wept.

Read about these and more, and be glad these things are not on your menu today. Link -Thanks,  Ben!

I gotta stick up for Dasani. The best water I ever tasted came from a well in the mountains in Colorado. Delicious. Clean. I loved it.

Dasani tastes exactly like that water.

Yup they still sell the McLobster in Nova Scotia during lobster season. McDonalds has lots of regional menu items, like Poutine in Quebec
