The History of McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish

How did a bunch of staunch Catholics and their Lenten diet help create one of the most popular fast food dishes of all time? Why did McDonald’s ever consider a pineapple sandwich? Do you really even want to know what was on a “Hula Burger?”

In this episode, we explore the struggling business and divine intervention that inspired the Filet-o-Fish, and the bonkers one-day competition between the Filet-o-Fish and the Hula Burger that led to one menu item being permanently installed in Mickey D’s Menu. This basically counts as going to Church… just so you know. Hallelujah!
