Darnit- the McRib is Back!

on November 1, 2011

All of us have some guilty pleasures- one of mine is the Mc Rib from Mc Donalds.  Just when I think it will no longer tempt me, I see this:

Agggh…. I have been trying to stay away but that tasty meat (?),  pickle, and onion sandwich is calling out to me.  In an effort to convince myself that I don’t want one, I looked up the nutritional information…read it and weep

450 Calories, of which 216 are from fat.
24 grams of fat, of which 8 grams are saturated.
890 mg of Sodium.
2 grams of fiber.
24 grams of protein.

In terms of calories and fat, it isn’t as bad as the Big Mac which boasts 540 calories and 29 grams of fat, but this is still pretty bad as sandwiches go.  33% of the fat is saturated and 890 mg of sodium is 33% of your quota for the whole day. 

And….who can go to McDonalds and not have fries?  Not me!  Even a small fry has 230 calories, 11 grams of fat, and 160 mg of sodium.  Yikes! 

I think I have to plan my day around not driving past a Mc Donald’s until that darn Mc Rib goes away.

I'm not the only one with a Mc Rib Fetish!
