  • Hey Kieth M...

    Hey Kieth M I know you have a love for the McRib, so just a heads up...It's coming back, the only thing is it's coming back in your old stomping grounds, maybe some people you're cool w/ can send you some...Call and check your local McDonalds...

    The McRib is (almost) back! Now, let's read the fine print

    November 13, 2009 | 9:39 am

    Hey, Southern Californians, if you're in the mood for a patty made from pork, water, salt, sugar (dextrose to be exact) and a few preservatives -- a.k.a. a McRib sandwich from your local Golden Arches outlet -- you're in luck. Or soon will be. This just in:

    "Featuring a boneless pork rib patty topped with pickles, onions and tangy BBQ sauce served on a fresh bakery roll, the legendary sandwich, which has not been available to customers in Southern California since 2006, will be offered on the menu for a limited time at participating McDonald’s restaurants. ..."


    This was too good to resist. BLAH BLAH BLAH!.. We had to check out the nutritional information. The upshot: 500 calories per sandwhich, 26 grams of fat and 980 milligrams of sodium. To be fair, it's a better bet in some ways than the Premium Crispy Chicken Club Sandwich, with 630 calories, 28 grams of fat, and 1,360 milligrams of salt.

    That's not to say healthful food can't be had. It can. So, please, choose wisely. The Southwest Salad With Grilled Chicken seems like a fairly smart choice -- unless you're watching your sodium. And you should be. (More on sodium as it relates to blood pressure, food, labels, etc.) And salads are less likely to be ordered with a honking huge side of fries. A large size has 500 calories of its own. (We will not discuss the McFlurry.) WHATEVER!...

    For help in making smart choices when eating fast food, here's some basic advice from helpguide.org.

    And for the nitty-gritty on menu options at chain restaurants, fast-food and otherwise (all conveniently compiled in one place), there's CalorieCount.com. It's fascinating stuff. ...

    Still, we're left wondering ...

    "Legendary sandwich"?

    Thank you, SFG!

    McRib watch, on the Front Range, is now in effect. Fellow Coloradans, please report any/all sightings.

    And in other culinary news....the town of Parker has a Del Taco under construction. A mere nine, slobbering miles from the Kieth M. home for excitable children.

            I bet what Keith really misses is a Animal 4x4 from In-Out Burger.

            A interesting side note about In-Out Burger from a radio interview from a woman that wrote a book about the company. In-Out has about 250 locations in 4 states, Each In-Out location makes more money than any individual McDonalds restaurant in the world...

                I wish Colorado could have In-n-Out, Trader Joe's Market, and Yoshinoya (aka; Beef Bowl), then life would be even better, here.

                      Hold the onions, only, for me. If Mickey D's could only learn to grill them onions, I'd let 'em stay on the sandwich.

                        Many of them have Hardee's. Same food/style of store, different name.

                          Don't know if you were ever a fan of Jack-in-the-Box, Kieth, but we finally started to get those in Denver about a year or so ago - which was one of the things I missed from CA (along with a coastline...but I know that ain't coming anytime soon!!)

                            Actually, the Del Taco being built in Parker is right next-door to the Jack in the Box they built a year ago. Never was much of a JITB fan.
