Default Do you like the McRib?

I know I might be 1 of the few but I like the McRib.

I don't absolutely love it, but I like it...I would give it a 7/10

I like the Filet-O-Fish the best and the Big Mac comes 2nd and then the Southern Style Chicken Sandwich. Those are the top 3 for me from McDonalds.

How about you? do you like the McRib? What are your favorites from McDonalds? Or any other fast food places?

Used to LOVE the McRib until I read about it on this forum. Actually haven't had one in years, don't really do much fast food any more. Personal faves are Popeyes (pigeon, I mean) Chicken and everyone's favorite dutch oven inducing, sleep on the couch inspiring secret weapon, White Castle.

I used to LOVE white castle..but then I got it too often and the craze went away.

I get it once a month and it is good.

It's not even a real rib, and the bun has chemicals in it used to make gym mats. Ughh!

I ate these in the early 80's after a night smoking hash from a water bong. If I knew what the ingredients were back then I'd have eaten two.
How many ingredients are there?
At face value, the sandwich contains just pork, onions, and pickle slices slathered in barbecue sauce and laid out on a bun. But the truth is, there are roughly 70 ingredients. The bun alone contains 34, says TIME’s Melnick. In addition to chemicals like ammonium sulfate and polysorbate 80, the most egregious may be azodicarbonamide — “a flour-bleaching agent most commonly used in the manufactur[ing] of foamed plastics like gym mats the and soles of shoes.” According to McDonald’s own ingredient list, the bun also includes calcium sulfate and ethoxylated mono- and diglycerides, among other chemicals.
Bleaching agents and the stuff that makes the soles of shoes? Where your feet go? Really?
What’s the meat made of?
Pig innards and plenty of salt. Typically, “restructured meat product” includes pig bits like tripe, heart, and scalded stomach, says Whet Moser at Chicago Magazine, citing a 1995 article by Robert Mandigo, a professor at the University of Nebraska. These parts are cooked and blended with salt and water to extract salt-soluble proteins, which act as a “glue” that helps bind the reshaped meat together.

I believe cigarettes have Formaldehyde in it but people still smoke them.

I like it. Considering what is in most of our food it really doesn't matter anyway. Do you realize what half the stuff in sugar substitutes are? One day eggs are good for you, then they aren't. Just enjoy!!! Our pollution and depleting ozone will probably be the end of us anyway.
