Why is the McRib so darn tasty?

I know that it shouldn't be, but damn that McRib is McTasty! Something about that pork loaf with extra sauce and pickles and onions on a long roll just does something for me. It definitely should be on the menu year round, rather than only coming out every year or two.

McRib used to be my favorite thing in the world. Until I got one that wasn't quite "boneless." That kinda ruined it for me for years. I had one last year when they came back out and it was good though. I don't think they have it here this year yet, but it's been a while since I dropped by McD's. Stupid healthier lifestyle.

I've never had one. I was always suspicious of the shape.....still am. And, especially, after watching super size me (and enjoying sex) I don't go near fast food.

OMG, the exact same thing stopped me from eating these too. I ate one with a bone (or bone-like thing.... you never know with McD's...) in one sandwich many many years ago, and I've never eaten another one since. I'm guessing its a lot better now, but I didn't even know that they still made these anymore. :P

The one I had last year was much better, like their improved chicken meat. Come to think of it, it probably is their improved "chicken" meat.

A bone in a McRib?

McRib - It's PEEEOPLE.

Try Morningstar Farms Riblets. There ain't no bones in it. Ain't no meat either.

Mmm...Krusty ribwich

to the tune of Chevy's "Like a Rock"
Like a rib,
it tastes like liberty.
Like a rib,
with a bun of sesame.

We start with authentic, letter-graded meat, and process the hell out of it, till it's good enough for Krusty.

It's because of the secret ingredient: Crack cocaine.

I don't know why they are so tasty, but they are awesome! I love it when ever they bring them back.

Krusty: Look... about the ribwich... There aren't gonna be any more... The animal we made them from are now extinct...
Homer: The pig?
Otto: The cow?
Krusty: You're way off... think smaller... think more legs!
Crowd: Ewww...
Krusty: People, we went through something magical together... And it's not important who got rich off of whom or who was exposed to tainted warts... And because you believed in my dream, I want you to fight over the last Rib-wich ever made...

Good point. Those with an abnormally low libido should probably stay away from it. j/k


Actually, I agree on the shape. Not only is it suspicious, but I dislike when a place that fries and nukes their food "paints" grill marks on it for my benefit.

Besides, how old to you have to be to have seen America's Funniest Home Videos, anyway. They replay them all the time.

Never had one. Why do they go away sometimes?

So they can shore up the numbers of the animals used to make the things. Those eggs need time to hatch, you know.
