There is nothing more captivating in the world of fast food than the peculiar McRib sandwich. It’s as interesting to say the word McRib as it is to dare your friend to eat it.
This is what the sandwich looks like in it’s finest form. Here’s what it looks like IRL:
For some reason, the McRib seems new to me. Maybe within the past 5 years this sandwich has been all the rage and I’ve always talked about it but never really gotten it because I don’t hate myself. But guess what? it’s been around for 30 YEARS. That is mind blowing.
I think Americans are smart enough to know that ribs from McDonalds are a bad idea. McDonalds knows that as well. Which is why they have them come and go in waves every year or so. It’s called the scarcity mindset, and it’s a real thing corporations use to prey. When something is only available for a limited time, your brain explodes in the bad decisions department to convince you that buying this is a good idea.
Nobody goes to McDonalds to eat right, that’s not news. The salads have more calories than a big mac and their chicken nuggets are a mix of bones and connective tissue. But boy does salt make things taste good. The McRib though is a whole new level of gross. It’s literally flash frozen into the shape of ribs. You know you’re not eating ribs, you’re eating science. And you know what? I bet it tastes pretty good…if you hate yourself.
