McDonald's McRib Sandwich

mcrib.jpgThe elusive McRib has come to achieve immense popularity since its introduction to the McDonald's menu in 1981. I never completely understood why it has developed such a cult-like following, but I've always been willing to try them out whenever I happen to stop by McDonald's at the right time of year. It's worth mentioning first of all, that the McRib is definitely a unique item. If you've never heard of it before, it's essentially a pork patty slathered with BBQ sauce and topped with pickles and onions. Oh yeah, and it's also served on a sandwich roll. While trying to pick up the McRib, my hands were immediately covered in sauce. Speaking of the sauce, it was of fairly decent quality. I found it to be a good balance between sweet and tangy. The pork patty was spongy and gelatinous, all whilst carrying a distinct fattiness to it that pork is known for. 'Juicy' is the key word here. The pickles contributed an appropriate amount of sour flavor, but the flavor of the onions was a bit muted. Overall, I can't say that this is exactly worth all of the hype surrounding it, but this is definitely a great tasting sandwich that's worth trying out at least once as it's only available for a limited time.

I barfed after eating a McRib once. I still get queasy when I see commercials for it.
