Certainly not. I am saying I'd rather eat the Omelet MRE than a McRib though.

Salsa Chicken was the first MRE I was ever issued, 6 weeks into BMT. Nobody knew which were the good ones and which were bad. I thought I got hosed unitl I started digging in. Every MRE after has been judged against the Salsa Chicken, and they all pale in comparison.

Pot Roast was good.
Sloppy Joe was good.
Chili Mac was good.
Chicken Fajita was good.
Spaghetti With Meatballs was disappointing because I couldn't get the heater to activate. Mmmm, cold pasta.
Tuna was great to break the repetition of tomato-based ground beef dishes.

Omelet MREs were always strangely plentiful in the pile after the first meal. I watched my buddy figure out why that was.

IMO, the mcrib had to have been developed by someone that either had zero concept of decent bbq, or really hated pork so completely that they decided to make that thing on a patty. It's culinary toxic waste by-products at best. It baffles me that people actually like it. But I suppose, if you dump enough advertising dollars at something people will believe it's good.

I'd rather cook up a rat and eat it.

I'd say a Rolling rock or a Mickey's Big mouth.

Yes all that stuff is not good for you, but once in a great while it's a good chow down. IME if I was to throwdown on some junkfood i'd get me into a 20 piece of chicken nuggets (love those things) or 4-5 of them Arby's roast beef sandwiches smothered with globs of that white horsey sauce. College memories of 5 for $5.

re: MRE's - Have had plenty of them myself, but that was back in the mid 90's, they seem to have a wider selection now. Corned Beef wasn't too bad, neither was the breakfast sausage or the bean/weanie one.

@Golddiggie - I don't like McRibs because of media, I like them because IMO they are tasty. The media / marketing circus would like me to believe in Santa Claus too... wait I still do and that SOB is bringing me a grain mill this year. Come to think of it I haven't seen an ad for the McRib since like 1980 something...

I'd rather go to Taco Hell for a double decker taco or a beef burrito supreme (no red sauce though )... At least those aren't made with pressed, formed, pig parts (of unknown origin).

Yes, I was eating those during my college years. Not sure if the DD taco was offered (it was more than a few years ago now) but the burrito was.

If I were to find myself on some sort of "Iron Beer Geek" show where I was being judged by Sam Calagione doing his best Gordan Ramsey impression on my ability to match an obscure beer style to unexpected dishes?
