Gone are the days when Jason Alexander danced on the streets to celebrate McDonald's McDLT, and -- SO WE THOUGHT -- gone are the days when the McPizza ("The pizza you won't believa!") was hawked to awed fast-food patrons. Because, as it turns out, there are still two McDonald's locations selling the long-since-discontinued Italian-ish treat. So maybe there's still hope for Jason Alexander.
It's not quite public knowledge how the two locations (located on the Ohio-West Virginia border in the towns of Pomeroy, OH and Spencer, WV) still have access to the McPizza; an employee at the West Virginia location has said that "it’s the same pizza as they sold when [she] started there 11 years ago and it’s presumably the same that children everywhere enjoyed throughout the 1990s," according to Canada.com.
Fans of the five-minute meal need only travel to one of the two tiny border towns to indulge their decades-old craving. Just know that -- if you do go -- you're most likely diminishing a stockpile of nostalgic food that might not ever be replenished.
