Burger King Rib Sandwich Nutrition

Since the early 80s, The McDonald's McRib has had the fast food rib sandwich market cornered, but that's about to change. Burger King has just announced their new Rib Sandwich, a seasonal item clearly modeled after the McRib.

Like the McRib, the Burger King Rib Sandwich features a boneless rib patty. And since there's no such thing as a boneless rib, it means that this is really just some pork pressed into a rib shape. On top of that rib-shaped patty you'll find tangy BBQ sauce and butter pickles.

If Burger King's Rib Sandwich sounds pretty delicious to you, you might be wondering about its nutritional value. Can you make the BK Rib Sandwich a staple of your summer diet and still fit into that bathing suit? Let's examine the nutrition facts and find out!

McDonald's Premium McWrap Nutrition vs Subway

Recently, McDonald's created headlines when a leaked internal memo outlined the company's plan to attract Millennials to the golden arches. According to the McMemo, Millennials (aged 18-32) prefer healthy foods with high quality, fresh ingredients.

The memo proudly calls the McWrap a "Subway buster" and claims that a full 22% of McWrap customers would have gone to Subway had the McWrap not been on McDonald's menu.

For a limited time, Arby's will be serving up their famous roast beef on King's Hawaiian sweet roll buns.
