Can't say I'm surprised after seeing the pink goo they make McNuggets from.

Well I'm encouraged it has pork. I was worried about that. I confess I like these. They really should breed pigs to have the intellect of fish, so I can feel less guilty about their horrible lives. Cause really even if I don't eat a lot of McRib, I do regularly eat pork. Mmmmm pork.

I hear human flesh tastes like pork...

Even when I was fat and ate pretty much anything, I wouldn't have considered getting one of those.

Just really gross.

Before I started caring about my health I used to eat them quite often. That's when they first came out. It sounds pretty disgusting.

I'm still going to eat them, because they are tasty and on limited offer.

This. This very clearly illustrates the problem with our eating as a society. I'm not trying to single you out, this is a very normal attitude these days.

If we only listen to our taste buds, and we ignore everything else- our eyes, our sense of reason, our health, how our bodies feel after we eat something, where the food came from, etc- if we ignore all of that because something is "tasty". Then we are doomed to poor health and obesity. We need to use all of our senses when we choose what to eat. And we also need to use our brains. Our taste buds are not going to keep us healthy and eating something yummy is not worth the negative consequences. I'm sorry, but if you can look at that picture of grey meat goo and say "but I'm going to eat it anyway because it is tasty" your priorities are royally screwed.

I have always detested anything remotely BBQ flavored and I'm Jewish so even when I used to eat meat I never ate Pork. I'm very that this has caused me to never attempt to eat a McRib. Yuck!

The whole process doesn't seem that bad to me. Pork Shoulder is good, I might prefer that over rib meat anyhow. There are a bunch of chemicals in it for preserving the food but that is expected from frozen processed foods anyhow. My advice, make your own McRib from fresh meats. It takes a bit longer but your body will thank you. Too many people eat fast food on a daily basis. Every once and a while for a treat is fine but more than that is just plain doing your body injustice. Everyone is on this site because they are somewhat self concious about what they are consuming so take the right roads to success and don't pay any attention to gimmicks like this.

It reminds me of something I once saw on an episode of Dirty Jobs Mad

K8yk - you and I agree on most things, but dammit, I have to draw the line on this! DON'T MESS WITH MY McRIB! They're only around for a limited time! Some people like grey goo (with bbq sauce)!

As far as your main point, once again I agree about letting our taste sense overrule our brains. My main problem is sugar. Everything that is "good" needs to contain 50% sugar for some reason. Even "healthy" granola bars are chock full of the stuff.

I do however allow for exceptions. A McRib now and then is one of these. The sandwich by itself is within my calorie range, and that is my primary concern right now.

As far as how it is made, I trust that McDonald's wants to make as much money as possible, which includes not serving items that are not edible in small doses.

I agree that our food animals are treated horribly, but until society is willing to pay more, I'm afraid it will continue to be this way.
