In similar fashion to a particular episode of How I Met Your Mother, three bros decided to embark on a legendary road trip to get some pizza from McDonald’s.
If you’re confused, McDonald’s tried selling pizza back in the early 1990s, but complications arose due to the pizzas slowing down drive-thru wait times and some fierce campaigning against the pies by Pizza Hut. The pizzas were eventually taken out of McDonald’s locations nationwide, but that didn’t stop two locations from continuing to sell a pizza pretty close to the original recipe. You can still find those pizzas in Pomeroy, Ohio and Spencer, West Virginia.
After reading an article on Canada.com about where the pizzas were still available, the guys at YouTube channel Completely Irrelephant came to the conclusion that they absolutely had to try a slice of McDonald’s pizza, and made plans to drive from London, Ontario to Spencer, West Virginia to do so. The total distance for the road trip was about 800 kilometers, or just under 500 miles.
While the actual road trip was pretty smooth, the bros did forget to see if the location they plugged into their GPS actually had the pizza, since the article was a couple of years old and there was no telling if the pizzas were still being served there.
Thankfully, the location was still selling them, much to the joy of the squad.
“Oh my God, there’s f*cking pizza!!!”
It seems that they enjoyed the pies after scarfing them down in a matter of minutes and getting back on the road.
This was definitely an iconic road trip and is making me consider trying my own for the pizza.
