It’s 2018, and I tell you what. There are some fast food items that I am severely missing. Often times a Fast Food franchise will come out and offer us something new that’s exciting and great. However, sometimes they take them away. This is when it becomes unacceptable.
I am sure there are many things that people wish came back. There are times when companies just did not give something enough time, or never listen to the fans that love it.[su_quote]This post may contain affiliate links.

Here is a list of 5 things that I wish would come back in 2018 and stay.
Wendy’s Original Fries
While they have been gone for some time now. I think I can still imagine how they tasted. When they were hot and fresh they were just magic waiting to be eaten. They had that softness to them. That “mushiness” level that just was so irresistible. I knew a few people who enjoyed dunking them in their frosty, but that was not my thing.
I am not asking them to get rid of the ones they replaced them with, just bring them
Why not take time and click to tweet the message below. Let Wendy’s know how you feel.

McDonald’s Original Apple Pie
Ah! The original apple pie at Mcdonald’s. Remember when you would burn the roof of your mouth or your tongue when you bit into it? I remember, but I didn’t care. If you took your time and ate it right, it was one of the best-tasting desserts at any fast food restaurant.
While there are a couple places that you can get something similar to the apple pie at McDonald’s check out Arthur Treachers if you have one, or the fried pie at Rally’s.
Burger King’s Original Chicken Tenders
Okay, I remember when you could get a box of 5 of these for a $1. One whole dollar. Fast Food Goodness. I would actually go inside to get these. I would get 4 orders and ask for them to be made fresh. I didn’t mind the wait because I knew how they would taste when they finally handed me the bag. Nothing has come close for me in taste from them for some reason. Oh well, I will just have to keep dreaming that they will come back.
Taco Bell’s Strawberry Frutista Freeze
I have to admit, other than the original taco, and maybe the original chicken taco without pico sauce, there was not much at Taco Bell I liked except for this. The Strawberry Fruitista Freeze. It had pieces of strawberries in it as well. When it comes to fast food and hot days, this was one of the few things I used to desire on a daily basis. I know they probably won’t bring it back, but I wish they would.
Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Original Recipe Chicken Tenders
Okay. For me, I saved the best one for last. This has been one that I still tweet about to KFC to this day. Fast Food Gold is what this was. When these first came out, I went nuts! To order a 3-piece with mashed potatoes and a biscuit was one of the most enjoyable things I could order and have it be a “comfort” food for me. Then they did what they always do, they got rid of them.
Why? I know the crispy ones are great for those who dip, but for those of us that don’t. The original recipe chicken strips were such an amazing addition. Here is my question to KFC. You have the original recipe seasoning ready to go for your chicken, why can’t you just make tenders for those of us that want them? Offer both, and see what happens. Why not click to tweet the following below, and let’s get their attention! ~Tom
