As you'll remember from a couple years ago I wrote a post about McDonald's Silly Nuggets. Well they are at it again. Over the holiday the commercial for the McRib was on constantly. I found a commercial form 1981 that I figured I'd share.
This thing looks GROSS and FAKE the commercial from 2012 also include an Black guy (not sure what's up with that) and the sandwich looks exactly the same!
Although I'm not a Fox News supporter I saw an article and knew I had to write about it.
Dec. 17 marked the return of the McRib to McDonald’s menus, and the Cook editors at The Daily Meal have a few bones to pick (literally) about this raved-about sandwich. While we’ve always been annoyed with the disappearing act (the sandwich is said to garner most of its popularity because of the fact that it’s only available at the Golden Arches for a limited time each year), we’re tired of everyone making a big fuss of something that’s — brace yourself! — a lie.Before everyone goes into hysterics, let us explain ourselves. The sandwich, which is a pork meat patty served with barbecue sauce and topped with onions and pickles, calls itself something it’s not. Packing in a whopping 500 calories with 26 grams of fat and 980 milligrams of sodium, the "rib" sandwich isn’t actually ribs at all. Made up of pork tripe, heart, and scalded stomach, the piece of meat served on the sandwich is processed down with water and sugar and then formed into the shape of ribs to give it a special appeal, when it’s not actually ribs at all.
Have you tried the McRib??? What did you think? After reading this will you eat it again?
Until next time...
