There is a shop in the center of Wolverhampton that roasts pork all day, they then sell you the basic roll filled with pork, the optional extra's are gravy, stuffing, apple sauce, crackling. I asked how many they sold at lunchtime, would you believe 2 to300 fantastic fast food.

The reason it rolls out nationwide so rarely, is that it uses specific cuts of pork, not trimmings, and when they do a national roll out, it screws up the pork market pricing because all of the meat it ...takes off the market. They can afford an LTO, but year round it would get too expensive to make.
Unlike sausage which is made from trimmings, to get the texture and bind right they use primarilly pork butts and picnics. This unusual demand cycle pulls a lot out of the retail stream and into the industrial stream which drives the price of these particular cuts up during the periods they make it. Trimmings have more conenctive tissue which can cause the product to fall apart, the whole muscle primals have significantly less connective tissues so it performs better.
Also
McD's president Jan Fields states, "It doesn't sell well all year long because people get tired of it."
People get tired of it???? But the Big Mac and Fliet O Fish have been on the menu for decades and we do not get tired of them???

I'm sure these fat loaded greasy McDonalds 'ribs, Big Macs etc work wonders for the average teenager's complexion. Not.

I bet you they end up selling more this way than if it was offered year round... but I could be wrong. When something is limited, we naturally want all we can get our hands on, and this is no exception. It is a good sandwich if you can avoid thinking about what you're eating... but that goes for all of McD's food. I eat there when most of my other options have fallen through, maybe once or twice a month.

Have you ever seen MRM being made? I hope not. McDonalds' food manufacturing contractors throw just about every part of the pig but its squeal into their stainless steel MRM mixers. And the thought of that puts me off any McD's for life.

There's a strangeness about McDonalds food. If you're not hungry and happen to be walking past one of their restaurants, their cooking smells is a terrible turnoff. But if you're starving hungry, maybe stressed a little and there's nowhere else to eat, then sinking one's face into a MacRib (figuratively speaking as Iíve never done so nor wish to) must be heaven on earth. A few times and only because my boy George was hungry, I've bought a Big Mac. Actually, two. He eats like a horse. :XD But McDs, they fill a market as well as tummies and somehow, cutomers come away happy.

Means to an end, really. Eat and be happy. But with MRM, sometimes ignorance is bliss.

I didn't say I liked the McRib, just that you were slamming the process incorrectly, and making it sound like some "mystery" meat

This is my honest opinion.

I tried these the first time around. I would rather give birth natural for the 3rd time than EVER eat another one of those!! IMO they taste like POOP!! JMO

Now on the other hand I would LOVE if McDonald's would bring back the Mighty Wings (I think that was the name) which were basically hot wings without the sauce and 10,000 times better than the ones KFC have/had.
