McRib is Back!
According to McDonalds nutritional information on the web, a McRib boasts 500 calories, 3 grams of fiber, and 26 grams for fat for a whopping 12 Weight Watcher points...more than half the points for a day and we're not even talking about french fries on the side.
The herd met me for lunch...they came on bikes.
The McRib cost $2.39 each in my neighborhood. After wrestling it out of the box (it was covered in BBQ sauce and slippery) and had a few bites, it didn't taste as good as I remember from many years ago.
In my opinion, the far superior sandwich can be found on the Dollar Menu - combine a complete McChicken sandwich, bun and all, between the patties of a McDouble. I'ts known in certain circles as the McGangbanger - it feels good at the time but sort of dirty afterwards. For $2 plus tax, this is a fantastic sandwich. If you dare, order the "McGangbanger" by name and see what happends - either you'll be kicked out of the facility or you'll get the sandwich already stacked as shown below. Since I live and eat in the same neighborhood, I've never been brave enough to order it by name - I whimp out and order the sandwiches individually. Are you man enough?
