Jazzy McDLT


We all know the deal, a huge container made out of Styrofoam, to keep the hot side hot, and the cool side cool. The package was unwieldy, why would I want to buy a burger and have to assemble it myself, and when McDonald’s started moving away from Styrofoam, the McDLT would be no more, until a few years later it would be called Big n Tasty. Nothing sells McDLT’s like Jason Alexander and jazz hands…


Full blown child of the 70's and 80's...

    I liked it. After you had it a few times you could easily just fold one side of the packaging over to do the assembly without actually touching the burger first. But it did suffer from too much mayo.

    My wife misses those burgers, since they didn’t have that horrible “cheese” of the quarter-pounder and Big Mac.

    BTW, I read somewhere that McDonald’s only began using styrofoam when an earlier generation of environmentalists complained about all the trees being cut down to make paper packaging
