McRib Thu, 11/16/06 3:57 AM (permalink)
Will you miss the McRib sandwich? McDonalds is doing a rather clever campaign called the McRib Farewell Tour. Come get your McRibs since it's available for a limited time! I swear that sandwich is a guilty pleasure. It's great for the first few bites and then the salty aftertaste kills it. Has anybody tried the cinnamon melts and southern style chicken sandwich yet?

    There was a Simpsons episode that covered this. Homer went on a tour with other 'Ribheads' who went searching for the last Krustyburger joints that were selling their version of the rib sandwich.

    I have not seen the other items advertised around here. Just the snackwrap. You mentioned elsewhere that they have a lobster roll in the New England area. I have not heard of that either.

        I miss the McRib. Yeah, it wasn't even close to being "real", but you're right, it was a guilty pleasure. I haven't seen it around the DC area in ages (probably because it isn't politically correct!) Haven't had the other items (yet).

          Hello All

          Must say i liked the Mcrib, as said before you know it's not real but tasty the same. Have't seen them in the Annapolis area in quite in while.

              Hasn't McRib had more farewell tours than Streisand and Sinatra combined?

              Haven't seen it advertised in my area in years. Had one in the early 80s and I still remember it well enough that I'll never miss it.

                    You mean they put that much stuff in it and they still can't kill the taste of rancid pork fat and gristle???

                                                Hmmm. Let me think now... What was that old skit on SNL???
                                                Oh yeah. I remember now.

                                                "The Whiners"

                                                Pray tell, how is a stating of pure simple truth "whining"?

                                                  TJ, what is your input on the suggestion that... if you think a thread is in the wrong place, advise a moderator, as they have the final say, and that way there is no need to discuss this matter on the thread itself. We can discuss my run on sentances anouther time. :~)

                                                  I have never had a McRib, hmmm? I could see making my own version using pulled ( just off the bone ) rib meat maybe?

                                                            It must be like artificial vanilla extract, where they make artificial vanilla and then make an extract out of it.

                                                            What IS fungal protease???
