McDonald's forced to remove 'iconic' item from menu due to demand
The return of an iconic McDonald's breakfast item has gone a bit too well.
The fast food chain brought back the fan-favourite Breakfast Wrap on February 7. However, the hype seemed to be more than the chain could handle after announcing it has had to temporarily remove the Breakfast Wrap from store menus due to the risk of running low on eggs.
The decision was announced on Friday in order to avoid risk of not being able to serve other breakfast items that contain eggs, such as the McMuffin. McDonald's highlighted that the item is only being removed for a small amount of time and will return shortly.

"We understand that it's no yolk to have your breakfast plans disrupted and realise this may have left you feeling a bit shell-shocked. We'll soldier on, working tirelessly to bring it back.
"Hopefully next week. We thank every single fan of the Breakfast Wrap for your egg-ceptional patience and understanding."

A second said: "There were tears this morning!!!" While a third said: "So I have been calling for it back for years then had to wait all week for the weekend so I’m free from work to get one and now
