Late Nite Adobo

Typing out thoughts on a website… when the cravings hit you in the late nite…

Eight out of ten Facebook statii agree: The hiatus is over, and the prodigal son has triumphantly returned home. Ladies and gentlemen, the McRib…is back. And this time, not in pog form.

So you may be asking yourself, “Bananaketchie? Whatsa McWib?” Awww, I’m glad you asked little girl! The McRib is a McDonald’s sandwich comprised of a pork-based patty (molded to look like a rack of ribs), tangy BBQ sauce, pickles & onions, and a standard bun made of bread. The mystery meat was moist, with a teensy hint of smoky, grilled taste that will fool your brain into believing you’re eating something that once oinked on a farm.

I don’t know if my palette is more sophisticated now and doesn’t respond to anything but the finest sous-vide fois gras, or if McDonald’s trimmed down the sandwich to conform to the cruel, transfatless society we live in….but something was missing. The McRib just didn’t have enough flavor, as if it needed to be given a hickory flavored hookah pipe to smoke with the Hamburgular or something.

At the end of the day, I left my McRib experience like a high school reunion. Yeah, it was great seeing the homecoming queen again, but she’s not as hot as I remembered…and she slightly reeks of onions. Now if only we can lobby for McDonald’s to release a McRib Double Down – Two McRib patties as the bread, with bacon & cheese as the meat. Ouch, my heart just skipped a beat…or five…
