The McDonald’s McRib sandwich is a favorite among many fans of the restaurant, even if it does look like a frozen piece of styrofoam.
An unknown employee of the franchise chain recently posted a frozen McRib patty online. The “before version” of the sandwich is far from the yummy looking piece of meat that is heated up and covered in sauce before being photographed for advertising purposes.
We have known for a long time now that the McDonald’s McRib is made up of many “left over” parts of a pig, specifically the “trimmings” and intestine. Yet none of that seems as disgusting as THIS photo:
Which is turned into this:
Of course McDonald’s McRib fans would never worry about such petty things would they? Judge for yourself:

There is of course the frozen McRib jokesters among us:
I’m sorry, I know some feel otherwise, but the picture of the frozen McRib made my mouth water. Bring it back soon @McDonalds

Somebody get that last guy a nice hot meal, he is obviously starving!
I personally have to compliment McDonald’s for magically turning that frozen block of freezer dried meat into something edible and delicious.
The Daily Globe posted a response from McDonald’s which officers no excuse for the flash freezing process:
“One reason our customers love the McRib is its fun and wonderful shape. Just like a burger patty is formed to be round and flat, we form the iconic McRib in the shape of traditional ribs. We then flash freeze the patty to seal in flavor and freshness, just like you freeze meat in your own freezer, before going to our restaurants.”
Are you surprised by the look of the frozen McRib sandwich?
