Year it was introduced: 1984 What was it: The McDLT, which stood McDonald's Lettuce and Tomato was a burger sold in a specially designed two-sided Styrofoam container. The meat and bottom half of the bun were placed separately from the lettuce, tomato, American cheese, pickles, sauces, and top half of the bun. Customers then combined the hot and cool sides. It was discontinued in January 1991 due to environmental concerns with the Styrofoam container.

Year it was introduced: 1988 What was it: The Cheddar Melt was basically a Quarter Pounder that was topped with onions (sauteed in butter and teriyaki), then topped with cheddar cheese sauce, it was also offered a few times in ‘90s, and most recently in 2004.

Year: 1991 What was it: It was a healthy reduced fat hamburger created to appease critics and appeal to the health conscious. How was it made? “To make the burger so low-fat, the company replaced the fat content with water. The recipe called for carrageenan -- a seaweed extract -- to bind the water to the beef. Beef made up only 90 percent of the patty, and water and carrageenan made up the remaining 10 percent. The result was a dry failure of a burger that was later called ‘the McFlopper’.”

Year it was introduced: 2000 What was it: An entire salad shoved into what appears to be a Frappuccino cup? The McSalad Shakers were only around for a short time and were replaced by their Premium Salads in 2003.

Year it was introduced: 1989 What was it: McDonald’s attempt at entering the pizza market. It started off in a few select markets, before growing to over 500 locations. Eventually the McPizza was discontinued all together due to the amount of time it took to cook.

Year it was introduced: 1991 What was it: A chicken fajita wrap, with a packet of sauce. Although, I don’t know if I would trust buying Mexican food from McDonald’s.

Year it was introduced: Mid-‘70s (in select test markets) What was it: Chopped onions shaped into small solid pieces, dipped in batter and deep-fried. Apparently, before stumbling onto the idea of making chicken nuggets, they thought onions would make better nuggets.

I Want to Live in This Retro Future Animation of Life on Mars Created by Czech designer Lukas Vojir, this animation is a retro-futuristic short commercial for a make believe life on Mars. The style of the animation is wonderful, I just love how everything unfolds on the geometrically shaped red planet, and the world is imaginative and perfectly rooted in our past thought of what the future would look like.
