Fast-food franchises are notorious for coming up with some crazy concoctions. Sometimes they’re a hit and other times they’re a total flop. We’ll give them one thing though: They sure are brave to test some funky foods in the market.
But with these launches, fast-food chains — many of which make the Franchise 500 list — had to pull the plug on some items. Wrong market, backlash or bad timing are just a few reasons to axe a food item. And as 2017 approaches, we can even be thanking them for removing some of these not-so-healthy foods, as we won’t be tempted to indulge in them while trying to commit to our New Year’s resolutions.
So for those looking to boost their health in the New Year, you won’t have to worry about any of these fast-food items getting in your way.
