The McRib returns to a drive-thru near you


(You know you want to. (AP))
The McRib — the odd little McDonald’s sandwich with a cult following — has made its return to a drive-thru near you.

The sandwich, first introduced nationally in 1982, consists of pork patty, onions, pickle slices and barbecue sauce. Its active fan base constantly yearns for its return on Facebook and Twitter. And it’s slightly better for you than the restaurant’s signature sandwich. (McRib clocks in at 500 calories and 26 grams of fat; Big Mac logs 540 calories and 29 grams of fat.)

I had my first McRib yesterday and today I want a breakfast version. That is a dangerous sandwichTue Oct 25 13:30:27 via web

If you were wondering where to find a sandwich in the D.C. area, don’t worry: The sandwich is in wide release across the chain until Nov. 14.

But if you ever need help finding the elusive meat treat, there’s (sort of) an app for that: Behold, the McRib Locator., developed by a hungry Minnesotan named Alan Klein. You can show your gratitude for such a tool by donating a McRib to him or sharing your McDonald’s promotional sandwich love story on his blog.

Is the McRib the mightiest fast food sandwich of them all? Or is it just plain disgusting? Where does it rank, say, in relation to the KFC Double Down, the Taco Bell shrimp taco or the Burger King Enormous Omelet Sandwich? View this master list of grossness then tell us in the comments below:
