McDonalds Brings Back The McRib Once Again

News

/ December 18, 2012

Mcdonalds’ savory McRib is officially back on the menu, but what exactly makes it so appealing?

Read some of the opinions on why people are so drawn to this “limited time only” meal, via Fox News:

Nutritional value

At 500 calories and 26 grams of fat, the McRib isn’t the most diet-friendly of sandwiches. For the same number of calories, you can eat two classic McDonald’s hamburgers and save 8 grams of fat. However, you don’t have to worry about the hamburger disappearing from the menu, so the indulgence may be worth it.

Cult-like following

Over the last three decades, the McRib has become something of a legend. It transcended the realm of fast food fans and made its way into pop culture, earning mentions in “The Simpsons” (as the Ribwich) and on David Letterman’s Top 10 lists.
The sandwich itself contains pork shaped like a rack of ribs that is doused with barbecue sauce and then topped with pickles and onions and served on a bun.
If you aren’t convinced that the McRib is for you, McDonald’s has put together 101 reasons why you should eat one.
