McRib is back again

Earlier this month I noticed that McDonald's McRib.com web site had a countdown clock on it. Now the site again features McRib's Farewell Tour like it did last year, but this time it is Farewell Tour II.

The McRib Farewell Tour II is very similar to last years site with a petition to keep McRib and some iron-on t-shirt graphics you can download. But there's also an animated rock concert stage on which you can control the lights, lasers and pyrotechnics.

It was last year at this time that McDonald's tried to make us believe that McRib was being retired. This time I'll know better; McDonald's will never retire their popular boneless 'pork product' sandwich.

It was at that time that I did my McRib Deconstruction
which includes McRib nutrition data and photos of what a McRib sandwich and boneless pork product patty looks like when taken apart. Like these:

Once again, Cleveland gets the shaft. They have Rib Fests here all summer long, yet McD's doesn't have the brains to sell the McRib in NE Ohio... Idiots. I'd buy one every day while they were back...

It's back again! I love 'em! I think it's actually a good thing that they are only available during special promotions. That is what makes them such a treat. If they were available everyday, I would eat them so much, I'd certainly tire of them eventually. Like a song that's overplayed on the radio.

McRib Forever!!

I thought McRib was supposed to be gone after 2006...went in to McDonald's recently was shocked to see it on the menu....have had 4 since....have always thought it should have been on the menu year-round...had my first back in 1982...just think if Big Mac & Filet O Fish were only offered once in awhile...to the suits in McDonald's corporate offices..a Big McThankYou
