    It's about time...too. Late in the year vs. the normal run.

      I could handle it if they put some decent BBQ sauce on the thing.
      It's so sweet and goopy it makes my teeth hurt.

        Not ever going to give that sweet, sticky, sponginess another try.

          That's what they use the back end of the pig for, sanitize it, flavour it and slap it on a bun. Yum.

            Never saw any point in the McRib, wasn't it started as a promotion with Michael Jordan?

              It comes with pickles on it.

                  If I wear my "McRib is Back!" sweatshirt when the McRib is not actually back...people are disappointed.

                  You don't have to eat the McRib to like it. It's like the Shamrock Shake. People who dislike that...need help. A big McHug.

                    At every Amish farmer's market I visit, they have pig tails at the butcher stand.  Now I know a good use for them!!

                      You do need lots of napkins with it though

                        Last year I decided I had to finally try the McRib. SURPRISE! I liked it. I did have them leave the pickles off.

                          You could order it without sauce, then apply your own, same with pickles, and you will wait a minute, but get a fresher product.

                            ...but by that time you could drive to a real BBQ.

                              This clearly defeats the purpose of McRib.

                                Not ever going to give that sweet, sticky, sponginess another try.


                                I thought that more than a decade or so ago when I had my first and last McRib. 
                                 
                                Today, I thought "What the Hell" and tried it again thinking that they may have improved it.
                                 
                                McDonald's is nothing if not consistent.  So, I'm good for another decade or so!

                                  I never tried one and probably never will.  I haven't eaten at a McDonald's since I was 5 years old.  But I am a big fan of their blueberry pomegranite smoothies.

                                    And that product would be?  I'd be afraid to see what is underneath that deep red sauce.

                                          The McRib is 30-0 in naked title matches.

                                                It gave me heartburn.  Not worth it even if it tasted better.

                                                  In a pinch.about once every 18 mos or so.......I'll go have a McRib or Big Mac..........but I gotta take the pickles off of both.  Actually had a Whopper in the Netherlands when my wife was feeling famished.  Took 3 bites and the whole side of my face swelled up for a day.  That was the first foray back into BK in over 20 years......never again

                                                      Along the same lines, imagine my dismay when I saw this sign in eastern Nova Scotia...
                                                       

                                                       
                                                      And no, we didn't stop and try one. We ate the real thing on Cape Breton.

                                                        I stand corrected, it would be better if it was just made out of the pigs ass.

                                                            Do they still have those "lobster rolls?" I remember seeing them about 15 years ago in Connecticut.
