All good things must come to an end even $1 ice cream cones.

McDonald’s reps have confirmed that they will be eliminating the Dollar Menu at the beginning of next year. As a replacement, the fast-food chain is launching the “McPick 2” menu, which will allow customers to pay $2 for two items, including the McDouble, McChicken sandwiches, small fries and new mozzarella sticks, according to Fortune.

“These new McPick 2 offers are just the start and are part of a broader value platform grounded in what our customers are looking for—choice and flexibility,” McDonald’s spokesperson Lisa McComb said.

The Dollar Menu’s phasing-out has been a long time coming. In 2014, McDonald’s shifted to the “Dollar Menu and More,” which included options costing more than a dollar.

We just hope that, in the midst of all these changes, all-day breakfast remains a constant, because now that 4 p.m. Egg McMuffins are part of our life, we can’t imagine existing without them.

The McPick 2 menu debuts on January 4th and will run until February 8th.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Guest on

For those of you who demanded $15 an hour to work at McDonalds…thanks a lot!

Katy on

I haven’t been to McDonalds in months and this just confirms I will not be going back anytime soon. Sometimes you just want a SINGLE sausage biscuit or SINGLE cheeseburger. Trying to force me to buy more food than I want??? No thank you!!!

Ghic Chic on

To the person who is upset about not being able to buy one sandwich, you’ll still be able to buy single items; they’re just going to give an option to get two items that normally cost slightly over a dollar each for two dollars. Stress is bad for the soul, breathe🙂

Jj on

I can’t believe people still eat at McDonald’s! Google their ingredients… Disgusting!

VKB on

In my neighborhood they’ve already gotten rid of the ice cream cones. I was truly bummed.

Kristen on

So now everyone can get McFatter.

Chi on

I prefer Wendy’s and have for a long time.

mc fuck it on

2dollor menu because you put your minimum wage to $15 an hour.

McScrooge on

So, now you are getting rid of the dollar menu of things that cost .10 cents to make. Bye Bye

PH on

Food is trash at McDonalds. You should make your meals whenever possible. Avoid places like this and cook!

Chris on

Everything changed over the last several years with this company. I could care less to tell you the truth. Burger King got better burgers anyhow and prefer them over McDonalds. To all the workers that want $15 an hour and can’t even get the order right.. You can go screw yourselves! Seems like every time I turn around, I’m having to go back inside cause you morons missed something or screwed up the order. I’m taking my business elsewhere!

No fast food within 25 miles, so I guess it won’t affect our HS kids too much… At least until a team drives out of town and doesn’t have the A.D. with them…he won’t let them stop for fast food. I don’t mind it once in a while… but like any kind of food… everything with moderation. The same goes for alcohol.

J.Rider on

Profits down for mickey D’s in 2016. Some folks don’t see the value in the value meals. Or $5&$6 sandwiches!

False statements it’s two for three dollars at Oklahoma turnpike not 2 for 2 dollars

Stop over reacting I am a manager at McDonalds and we are selling more food and actually losing money compared to before the mc pick and I make 12 as of now and crew starts at 9.75 not 15 you are all nieve about this situation

McWhat on

But beware if you order “2 McChickens” and say nothing more they will ring it up as about $2.60 because YOU have to say “Pick 2” etc. when you order, otherwise by default you’re ordering 2 $1.30 items. Sneaky tactics. Buyer beware.

Roll my eyes. on

The hilarity of McD’s money. When the dollar menu came out, the foods on the menu actually cost ONE dollar. Then over time, they raised the prices (like they do with everything else on the menu) and things went from $1 to like $1.49 or $1.89 and we morons whined about it for a second and then paid it. But dumbasses will blame min. wage workers for the raise in prices? LMFAO. God, these billion dollar corporations really have so many of you bent over and taking it up the butt.

As inflation has gone up, so have the prices. I watched Big Macs go up by DOLLARS while people were earning $7 or less and living in poverty and not even making a living wage.

Now they take the dollar menu away, that wasn’t even a true dollar menu and you dips blame the workers for it? God. It’s no wonder rich corporations are getting away with despicable actions when they’ve got morons thinking that the price of their fast food is going up because workers are earning just enough to be in the poverty level (since to earn an actual living wage in America that allows you to not be in the poverty range should probably be closer to $20-$25/hr. or more). Uhhh no.

And then so many of us wonder why this country is going down hill and losing its place as a quality country that others look up too from other countries around the world.

James R on

Get RID of the Entire Menu….McDonald’s is NOT real food. It’s FULL of GO’S and Snnthetic crappie that will Harm your body!

David on

First of all, I don’t care what the price is, you couldn’t force feed me that crap. Second, for all you people complaining about the price, it’s no different than it was. As a matter of fact, the Mcdouble was already over a dollar. So now you get two for even cheaper. That’s good for you, you can stuff that extra one in your mouth and maybe it will shut you up long enough to think about the fact that the minimum wage increase is only in New York. Do you have any idea what the cost of living is there? Regardless, people shouldn’t have to scrape by when they’re trying their best so that you can stuff your face with garbage that the company is making a killing off of.

Anonymous on

Boo! Why not have both.

Nicole on

Who cares, McDonald’s is nasty. I haven’t eaten at a McDonald’s in idk how long. Id rather cook for my family.

Kelly on

After Feb 8th they switched the McPick 2 and its now 2 items for $5…so what used to be a dollar or maybe slightly more is now $2.50

Pete on

Your food is gross and should be eradicated entirely as its barely even what u claim it to be. Fraudulent capitalists

Not that I ever buy anything but breakfast at McDonalds, but eliminating the dollar menu isn’t going to encourage me to buy anything else.
