In a rather sinister tweet made by McDonald’s Canada on Friday, the fast-food mammoth is promising “the thing you have been asking for” making a return this Tuesday.

It didn’t take long for Twitter to begin hounding the brand about the McPizza, which feels like a sacred relic from decades past.
Never heard of it? You’re not the only one.
First introduced in the 1980s, the McPizza was a full-sized dish offered alongside the burgers, fries, and nuggets we all know and love today. Perhaps, unfortunately, it downsized into a personal pizza with time.
At the turn of the millennia, the product was almost fully scrapped from the menu because it took too long to prepare. The box also struggled to fit through the Drive-Thru window. Presently, only one location still serves it, and it’s in Orlando, Florida.
TIL McPizza failed in part because the size of the box was too big to fit through the Drive-Thru Window lmao pic.twitter.com/pFvDLShKzZ— Ted Buddy 🤖 (@TedBuddy8) August 27, 2021
Following the McDonald’s tweet, “McPizza” started trending on Twitter, and seemed to become less of a food item and more of a meme.

Anything short of McPizza will be a disappointment… people have been asking for it during the pandemic… give the people what they want! pic.twitter.com/dGzRJGpVCu— Mango Tango (@UnboxedCrayon) August 27, 2021
Unfortunately, dreams were dashed, and many were sorely disappointed: on Sunday, the brand confirmed that it was, in fact, not McPizza. It looked to be Spicy McNuggets instead.
Thus, the frenzied clamoring for the nostalgic cheese-sauce-bread-topping menu goodness will be lovingly memorialized as “what could’ve been.”
