I always laugh at the food snobs that are utterly disgusted by fast food restaurants, yet they will go out to any chain restaurant out there and order a meal/app that is likely much, much worse for you than McDonalds. POO ON YOU


Where's SDG when we need him?

^haha.....very true.

But it is funny when people are disgusted with "fast food" but then go stuff their face in a restaurant with equally bad or worse fare. If you are going to be anti-fast food, you better be anti-ALL kinds of unhealthy food.

But a highschool dropout that went to culinary school for 6 months and had semi rich parents probably cooked it.

I have a fairly well-earned reputation here as a 'foodie'; the only petition I've signed in the last ten years was to overturn the California ban on foie gras.

That said, I've eaten meals at so-called 'fine dining' restaurants that would blow away - absolutely shame - anything from McDonald's in terms of caloric content. Oxtail ragu, the aforementioned foie gras, bone marrow, sea urchin....... my wife and I ate at a place in Chicago called The Purple Pig, and I'm reasonably sure our meal was in the 5,000 calorie range, each.

If foodies had any real understanding of how utterly unhealthy most fine foods were, they'd never utter a peep about Micky D's. As a good food aficionado, you just have to own your space. 8-)

Blink and it's gone. The ephemeral McRib sandwich appears at McDonald's infrequently and only for a limited time. If you haven't indulged in one yet, here's what you're missing: azodicarbonamide, ammonium sulfate and polysorbate 80 — those are just three of the 70 ingredients (34 in the bun alone) that go into the BBQ pork sandwich, according to the restaurant's website.
These components are in small enough quantities to be innocuous. But it's still a little disconcerting to know that, for example, azodicarbonamide, a flour-bleaching agent that is most commonly used in the manufacture of foamed plastics like in gym mats and the soles of shoes, is found in the McRib bun. The compound is banned in Europe and Australia as a food additive. (England's Health and Safety Executive classified it as a "respiratory sensitizer" that potentially contributes to asthma through occupational exposure.) The U.S. limits azodicarbonamide to 45 parts per million in commercial flour products, based on analysis of lab testing.

I don't hate the McRib (or McDonalds itself for that matter) for nutritional reasons... I just don't care for them.

I think the azodiocarbonide is the best part. Well, that or the pickles coz they're all crunchy!

When it comes to fast food and unhealthy food in general... as with most things in life the cliche' "everything in moderation" is true
