Umm, wherever the McRib went, let's hope it goes back there real soon. You might like eating a yoga mat, but I don't. Read on:

I think we all know McDonald's isn't the healthiest place on the planet.

Many of you folks must feel the way I do. How does a mediocre burger chain come into a Barbecue mecca like Texas and in my case Memphis and sell those who know better this mass produced thing on a bun and refer to it as rib?

Because it's

#1 cheap
#2 tastes purdy darn good (yes, subjective, I know, but I love the thing)
#3 immediate gratification

that may not be the PC answer, but it's the truth. On top of all that, McDonald's has created quite a market for it with its "limited availability". Pavlov's dogs and all.

McRib... 26 grams of fat + 980 mg's of sodium.

Certainly not the worst on their menu... but still
not very good for those thinking about their health.

I saw that. I had one for ole times sake since it's something my brother and I would get when we were kids. When he first got his car that's the first place we went to. Good ole Micky D's. It's something I certainly wouldn't eat everyday but one won't kill anyone.

Anyways, has anyone tried the "spare ribs" entree in the MRE's ? I forgot which batch number but when I first tasted it, it tasted like a McRib. Just an observation.

I think it has been said on this forum before, people who go to McDonald's are not overly concerned with the nutritional value of their meals.
