Tears are watering out of my eyes, the McDonalds Dollar menu is going away and is going to be replaced.

ABC news is reporting that the dollar menu will be replaced by the "McPick 2" menu.

The menu will allow patrons to choose two of the following items for $2.

  • The McDouble
  • The McChicken
  • small fries
  • mozzarella sticks

Yes, mozzarella sticks will soon debut at the golden arches. I can't wait.

The menu changes will will take effect on January 4th. According to ABC News:

The offering has gained the necessary votes from franchisees to make it onto the national menu, and will be available in U.S. restaurants for a five-week run starting Jan. 4. After that, McDonald's said it may change the details of the offering, but that it plans to stick with the "McPick" concept and name.

 

It's just the latest effort by McDonald's to revive slumping sales with bigger moves, such as making breakfast items like Egg McMuffins available all day. The chain has also been trying to find a new way to attract deal seekers after moving away from the Dollar Menu, which was introduced more than a decade ago.

If you do the math, it still amounts to a dollar an item. You just need to decide on two items.

I'll take all four for $4.00.
