The Cheesy '80s McDonald's Item We All Want Back
By Kalea Martin
Through the years, McDonald's has introduced many menu items that ended up flopping, but the same can't be said for the Cheddar Melt, a burger McDonald's released in 1987.
This burger consisted of a ¼-pound beef patty, grilled onions, and a melted cheddar cheese sauce. Instead of a traditional hamburger bun, the Cheddar Melt was made with a rye bun.
Unfortunately, it wasn't available for very long after it was released. Currently, you can only get it at McDonald's locations in Brazil, where it's known as the Cheddar McMelt.
McDonald's has yet to confirm whether it would bring the Cheddar Melt back. The company has previously reintroduced updated versions of some of its menu items.
Perhaps a more promising sign is the fact that McDonald's brought back the Cheddar Melt in 2014 for a limited time in select cities in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
Limited-time offerings at fast food restaurants typically last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, but the Cheddar McMelt could become a recurring seasoning item.
