This Is The Full 1972 McDonald’s Menu: 17 Items. You Will Not Believe How Many There Are Today.

Reddit user sebbysir has shared with us a truly amazing discovery: a photo of a McDonald’s menu from 1972. It shows a grand total of 17 of items, and that includes both food and drink. I think I liked the Tripple Ripple Ice Cream Cone the best.

But once I saw this, I thought I should look up the most current McDonald’s menu and compare it to its 1972 version. Now, I was prepared for a big difference, but I didn’t expect it to be this huge. You know, I just quit counting at around item #54. If anyone out there is willing to go through all this, please share the current with the rest of us in the comments below. Anyway, the difference is absolutely amazing.
