Skip to comments.11 Amazing Facts about the McDonald's McRib (Reader Reactions Are HILARIOUS!)
Posted on 12/28/2012 5:55:19 AM PST by PJ-Comix
The McDonald's McRib is back, hitting restaurants nationwide today. The legendary boneless pork sandwich, famously molded to resemble a rack of ribs, is both a feat of modern engineering and shrewd marketing.
It garners almost as much attention for its pseudo-meat shape as its impermanence on restaurant menus.
The barbecue-sauce-smothered sandwich was supposed to return at the end of October, but was pushed back to help boost end-of-the-year sales.
Better late than never.

Can I pay with restructured money???
Eat the box.It's better for you.
So if one of the ingredients is the same one that is in yoga mats, does that make it healthier?
Sounds like this is a flatten out hot dog.
When i saw the picture of the sandwich i thought this was another Kim Kardashian story
When I get a craving for a McRib, I just slather barbecue sauce on an old shoe - tastes EXACTLY THE SAME - YUMMMM!!
It's a heart attack on a bun - with bonus gym-mat ingredients!
"Excuse me Miss, i dont mean to be rude, but you have a little yoga mat stuck between your teeth".
You sure have to give credit to the guy who came up with the name McRib. I wonder how many they would sell if it was called a 'tripe, heart, and scalded stomach sandwich'.
Restructured meat technology. Sounds delicious!
Yummmmy! A slab of congealed pork scrapins and slurry, slathered with chemicals, adhesives, coloring, salt, and the sort of gelatinous goop that one normally associates with waterproofing a roof. My mouth would be watering if it wasn't for the fact that I just threw up in it.
After reading the list of ingredients, I think I just McBarfed.
So much compressed goodness one wonders if this is the food of the gods.
No ribs were used in the making of this sandwich.
RIB: Restructured Intestinal Byproducts
take some duct tape and just attach this sandwich to your butt
Restructured meat? Soylent Green is People! Soylent Green is People!
The Supersize Meal comes with a defibrillator.
Good luck eating McRib containing the whole periodic table.
Monica Lewinsky’s tounge wouldn’t even touch one of those things.
I like them.
I have a pretty high tolerance for horrible food but when I tried it for the first (and last) time years ago, I had to put it down after one bite and then spit out what I bit. I actually couldn’t believe such a horrible food product would be marketed. Actually the most surprising thing is they continue to try to re-market it. Oh, and glad to know that the same ingredient that goes into making Yoga mats goes into McRibs. Does that make it healthier?
You savor Yoga mats?
Good news! Here is the thing that you can avoid for Lent. Such a sacrifice!
No but I like tripe, heart and other pig offal.
I like them too. I tend top think most of the comments come from Michelle Obama fans. She’s a food grabber, he’s a gun grabber (among other equally heinous things). Don’t ruin my decadent indulgence just because other morons depend on fast food for most of their meals.
There was once a time, many eons ago, when Arby’s used REAL roast beef in their sandwiches. And then their cost accountants had their culinary input.
The McRibb is no better or worse than anything else on their menu.
I don’t care what’s in ‘em. I love them. I also love head cheese, fried pig’s ears and pickled pigs feet!
You don’t have to be a food snob to hate McRibs. I have a high tolerance for lousy food and even I can’t stomach that stuff. I would like to see a TV episode where Andrew Zimmern eats a McRib sandwich.
"...there's a dog next store that hasn't poop the same since I fed him two a year ago
THe point made about MickyDs bring a commodity trader was interesting. I woder how much in physical reality the McRib differs from Soylent Green.
I remember those days, I was in college 40 years ago! Haven’t eaten at Arby’s since!
I’ve never had a McRib nor will I ever eat MvNuggets again. I watched Jamie Oliver make some on TV!
It’s kinda like “ I hate martini’s, but I LOOOOVE olives.” to justify drinking the gin/vodka. I love the sauce on the things, better than most rib houses, but don’t care for the meat product. And yes, I’ve had the had NC and SC barbecue sauces. Not hot enough.
These should be bought in bulk and stored with other non refrigerated prepper items. Shelf life is beyond that of the Twinkie.
when Arbys used REAL roast beef in their sandwiches. ....Only reason I go to Arby’s is to steal the Horsey Sauce packets.
