McDonalds Has Plans To Bring Back The McRib

So...Just when you set your taste buds on a McRib, McDonalds drops it from the menu.  I know, I know.  It's not easy to be a fan of the McRib. It's kinda like that non-committal girlfriend.  Once you really make up your mind to get serious and fall in love, it's gone.

The McRib has been an off-and-on offering at McDonalds for years, and its last appearance was in 2011.  And fans of that boneless pork sandwich will be happy to know it's coming back at "most McDonalds restaurants."

Can You Spread Booze On A Cracker? Apparently So.

I love a good wine and cheese party, and since I'm such a snacker, I would much rather eat some kind of spread on a cracker than a huge meal.

But booze on a cracker?  Like beer-flavored spread?  I'm not too sure about that.

Stores Know What They’re Doing With The Free Samples

Can you resist the urge to walk by the free samples in grocery stores without indulging?

Sometimes on those days when I'm starving and trying to squeeze in one more errand on the way home, I'll cross my fingers that the store will have some great free samples to take the edge off my growling stomach.  Other days I'll walk right by without sampling.  But the kids always want the free samples.  You know how it goes, parents. They'll eat anything in a store.

How much extra product do the stores sell after offering the free samples?  It's pretty unbelievable!  No wonder they're always offering that one glob of hummus on a pita chip, and the one gulp of that homemade soda.

There’s No Such Thing As Comfort Food?

Do you pack snacks for work?  I do.  Boring ones like gluten-free granola and crisp breads since I'm going without wheat/gluten and soy for the time being.  The kind of snacks that makes you fellas' eyes roll!  But pizza would normally be my favorite comfort food.  Do you have one?  Mac and cheese? Peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream?

The number one comfort food is chocolate.  But does it really comfort us?
