I read on RocketNews24 that McDonald's Japan has removed the Quarter Pounder and the Double Quarter Pounder from its menu as of today and people are not happy about it. In Japan, there are many seasonal items that are available for a short time, but this is a standard item on the McDonald's menu. I don't know the reason for this and it doesn't really matter to me because I don't eat quarter pounders, but it does seem strange that this sandwich is no longer available.
Is the Quarter Pounder disappearing from McDonald's around the world, or only in Japan? Would you be upset if it were no longer available at your local McDonald's? I love living in Japan, even though I don't understand what is happening much of the time!
