The McDonald's McRib: It's back. For now.
Our McRib expert in residence is back at BlogPost to decipher the return of the McRib. Thanks, Liz Kelly!

Don't let this new report about the actual contents of a McDonald's chicken McNugget (anti-foaming agent dimethylpolysiloxane, a form of butane, pulverized chicken skin and 47 other things) scare you away from the awesomeness that is McRib season.
Starting yesterday, the elusive McRib -- which we discussed in this space last month -- is back on Mickey D's menu, but will only be available through Dec. 5. So eat up, McRibbies. Unless, that is, you plan to head to Germany, where -- according to AdAge -- the McRib is available year round. Also big in Germany? David Hasselhoff's music. I'm just saying.
As part of the "Legends of McRib" promotion, McDonald's is prepared to send YOU to Germany with $10,000 in hand (which will buy many McRibs) if you can submit the most "compelling story or adventure that best exemplifies the spirit and excitement a McRib fan feels, and that is conveyed in a submitted video that is a contestant's own original or fictional McRib story or adventure."
Somehow that strikes me as a bit more motivation than usually exhibited by the typical McDonald's consumer. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
If you aren't up for crossing the Atlantic, take heart. According to my husband, who just returned from Guatemala, the McRib is also currently available there.
