Dunkin' has announced that they're retiring a popular item that has been on menus for 23 years. The news does not come as a surprise to some, though others have taken their complaints online over why the drink is be pulled.

And while the franchise says there is always chance it could return one day, it's another example of fast food companies shuffling their menus to keep up with demand. What is a bit strange though, is that one Dunkin' rep said the item was actually discontented last year, though many locations across the area continued to sell it anyway.

A representative told USA Today that the chain plans to "focus on innovation and finding new ways to delight guests, we continually evolve our menu in an effort to deliver a fast, frictionless experience," 

Whatever that is supposed to mean?
