McDonald's McD.L.T.

If the decade's cuisine left a bad taste in your mouth, perhaps it was a result of a new sandwich introduced by McDonald's in 1985. The McDLT (for "McDonald's Lettuce and Tomato") was, in essence, a quarter-pound hamburger served in a cumbersome double-wide polystyrene clamshell package that resembled a kitchen sink. The lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, pickles and condiments were supposed to stay cool on one side of the box, while the burger patty and bottom half of the bun stayed warm on the other, requiring the consumer to slap the two sides together before eating.
