It's always a special time of year when the McRib goes back on the menu and Micky Ds. It's a fan favorite for sure, but if you strip away the bun, BBQ sauce and toppings - what does the McRib really look like?

I tried the McRib a long time ago and it was the most disgusting thing I've ever tried. It didn't taste right and it had a weird texture.

A poster on the web sharing site Reddit recently posted a picture of a frozen uncooked McRib patty...if you want to call it that.


So what exactly is McRib meat made out of? It's something called "restructured meat product." That is code for pig bits like tripe, heart, and scalded stomach. Mmmmm.

I eat fast food, and there's no doubt that most of it is not made from "top quality products." But, the McRib and even McNuggets have never really appealed to me. We've all heard about what McNuggets are made of. It just falls into the "there's just something not right" category.
