If you’re old enough to remember when you could go through the drive-thru at McDonald’s and get a piping hot pizza, then you know the joy these three dudes from Canada felt when they tasted the deliciousness.
In the late 1980’s, McDonald’s began toying around with the idea of offering pizza on their menu. It began as a full-sized pizza, but they eventually offered the pizzas in a personal size. At the peak of the McPizza craze, it was offered in more than 500 locations, but due to the company wanting to maintain their reputation as a fast food restaurant, the pizza began to disappear from menus nationwide. However, they weren’t pulled from all locations. There are two locations in the United States that still offer the tasty treat, in both family and personal sizes. McDonald’s in Pomeroy, Ohio and Spencer, West Virginia can still boast that they serve McDonald’s pizza and nearly follow the original recipe.
When the fellas over at the Completely Irrelephant YouTube channel read an article mentioning the two remaining locations serving the pies, they knew they were destined to give it a try. They drove from London, Ontario to the Spencer location, which was nearly a 500-mile haul.
Upon further investigation, I discovered that the Pomeroy location is only a mere 143 miles from my house. It looks like I’ve found my next road trip adventure.
