If you're a certain age like I am, you may remember that Burger King had a rather quirky sandwich they called the Yumbo--it was a hot ham and cheese sandwich. Recently, they decided to bring it back.

According to the reports, BK removed the item from their menu in 1974, but I swear they brought it back briefly in 1979. I remember they had a commercial for it that had calypso music and a black female BK counter person singing "Have you tried a Yumbo yet? It'll take you to Jamaica." I also remember at about the same time they gave away this card game which played like Go Fish in which you had to collect sets of four matching cards, and I remember the Yumbo was one of the sets.

At this rate, how long before they revive Supertrain? :-P
