McDonald’s had been the innovator of fast food for decades, and while they’ve created some clunkers, the Golden Arches have also created some true gems.

McDonald’s, the legacy fast food chain that is either loved or loathed, no in between.

Throughout its history, the Golden Arches has certainly been an innovator in the fast food marketplace, from its burgers to its knick-knacks such as the McCafe.
