I cannot swallow pressed and processed meat. It will just not go down. I've never seen a McRib much less eaten one but your descriptions sound even worse than I imaged.

Then you must be "really pleased" with the majority of "turkey" sandwiches sold in USA, Jan!

I used to have some friends who owned a MickeyD's franchise.... That was back when McRibs first came out, and they told me how gross it was...

They made a lot of money on that store, but they didn't eat there. Tells you something, doesn't it?

To be honest, I can't quite understand how McDonalds stays as popular as it is. Granted, the milkshakes are ok, not as good as a frosty, and the fries are good, so long as they are hot. The burgers are way subpar in my opinion. Though they are making a small attempt at the "Healthy" foods, they too seem iffy at best. I really think it is in large part to kids begging thier parents to go there, that they stick around. I don't think I have any friends that say, "hey, imma go to McD"s, but my frieds with kids seem to almost frequent it(not good for the kids, imo).

It has to be the kid factor; I don't know any adults without children who ever go to McD's except maybe for a cup of (careful! it's hot!) coffee on the way to work. Even their "breakfast platter" is substandard unless you're just fond of cold pancakes.

Well, my husband and I like McDonalds. We do not have any children, either.
For my husband, it is comfort food.
And, I went to McD's yesterday and was excited that the McRib was back. I wanted to order it so badly, but they were still serving breakfast :(

Why save it. Isn't just another addicting fat filled food?

I went on the site, and looked at the studio game... or w/e it is, and I got in trouble cause I'm at school.
