Before: This is what McRib meat allegedly looks like before McDonald’s employees doctor it up with heat, sauce and onions.
[adsense]The McRib. One of the few holdovers from 1980s Americana Nostalgia, the iconic foodstuff from the 80’s era is arguably one of the most ‘cult classic’ foods. While people joke about how unhealthy it is, every time McDonald’s re-announces its season menu appearance, social media and lines go wild. Everyone wants their McHeartattack sandwich.
But a user on social news website Reddit.com has caused the McRib meat to churn stomachs. The image above isn’t frozen styrofoam, but rather frozen McRib meat. The meat usually has a very artificial, yet tasty, warm look as it sits beneath a slathering of BBQ sauce and a mess of onions and pickles.
In the image above, it looks like a strange bastard offspring of Voortman’s wafer cookies and the annoying stuff that’s packed into every shipped package in America.
McDonald’s apparently responded to the image:
“There are few things more legendary at McDonald’s than the McRib. It is a boneless, seasoned pork patty on a bun with slivered onions, two dill pickle slices and plenty of our sweet, smoky, barbecue style sauce. One reason our customers love the McRib is its fun and wonderful shape. Just like a burger patty is formed to be round and flat, we form the iconic McRib in the shape of traditional ribs. We then flash freeze the patty to seal in flavor and freshness, just like you freeze meat in your own freezer, before going to our restaurants. The McRib is also known for its iconic taste, which is why we use a quality cut of pork – pork shoulder – to give our McRib lovers a thicker, meatier McRib experience.”
