McDonald's Ditching Its "Extra Value Menu" For One That Has $5 Items

Categories: Chain Reactions

McDonald's is reportedly going to retire its "Extra Value Menu" a year after its introduction because, well, people just weren't biting. The pricier "Extra Value Menu", which featured items costing closer to $2, was instituted to get customers to switch over from its more popular "Dollar Menu." The failure was explained by a McDonald's spokesman who said that they "didn't deliver on simplicity and clarity."

Now a so-called "Dollar Menu & More" will be rolled out as soon as this year. It's still being tested and tweaked right now at several outlets, but it is believed that the pricing structure will now be three tiered, with $1, $2 and $5 options. The new menu will include more chicken items as well as burgers with extra patties and bacon. A 20-piece McNugget pack will also retail for $5, reportedly.

That last bit might make the woman in the following video either happy or finally allow her turn into her "ultimate form."

Mcdonalds needs to hire Rayon McIntosh to properly train these employees on how to deal with such situations.

As has been widely publicized, Wendy's recently did the same thing, i.e., pricing the discount items all over the place.  And I have to say, it's not as fun to order at Wendy's anymore.  En route to Westminster on Tuesday, JBinOC needed to stop for a quick, cheap, late lunch, and exited the 405 to visit the Wendy's on Brookhurst Street in Fountain Valley.  Seeing the Caesar Salad priced at $1.79 didn't prevent him from ordering it, but it was a lot tastier when it was 99 cents or $1.19.

But the bright side...

the Monterey Ranch Crispy Chicken Sandwich is back on the menu, and at 99 cents!!  

Don't know if it tasted great 'cause it's great, or because of the price!!
