A Mr. This Little Piggy from Ames Iowa asks (Trembling)....
"Dear Mr. Knowitall, is it true? Is IT returning?"
'Dear Mr. This Little Piggy...Oui, Oui, Oui!!!
First introduced in 1982, This Heaven on a Bun, comes and goes
periodically. Because it is not always readily available, it
has developed sort of a cult following when it returns.
Mechanically separated pork (Mostly Shoulder), is chopped and
seasoned, formed into a rib mold, then flash-frozen.
The whole process from fresh pig to McRib takes about 45 minutes.
Added to the pork is salt, water, dextrose, BHA, BHT, Propyl
Gallate, and Citric Acid. The last FOUR ingredients are used to
keep oils from going rancid .
Including a sweet sauce, slivered onions, pickles, and a white bun,
it has 500 Calories, 26 grams of Fat, and 897 mg's of Sodium.
