McDonald’s just announced that they’re bringing back the tasty fan favorite McRib sandwich for a limited time, and I couldn’t be more excited for this.
My love affair with the McRib started more than 35 years ago when I first bit into this delicious sandwich, a seasoned boneless pork slathered in tangy, delicious barbecue sauce, topped with slivered onions and tart pickles on a hoagie-style bun. It was love at first bite.
Sadly, my love affair with the McRib was short-lived, as McDonald’s pulled it from their menu shortly thereafter. But thankfully, they tend to bring the BBQ sauce-oozing sandwiches back for limited engagements every few years.
Now, the the iconic McRib is making it’s saucy return starting December 2, and this time they are offering it NATIONWIDE (for the first time in 2012), so you won’t have to use some clunky app or website to see if your local store is carrying them or not, because all of them will. As if the quarantine hasn’t already made me fat enough, this will be even worse for my waistline..
“The McRib has been a beloved menu item at McDonald’s since its inception nearly 40 years ago,” said Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen. “There’s nothing quite like the taste of the McRib. To our customers, it’s become more than a delicious, saucy moment… it’s a season, and it’s taking the internet by storm. That’s why this year, we’re proud to serve the McRib nationwide for everyone to enjoy.”
Man, all this talk about the McRib has got me really hungry, December 2nd can’t get here soon enough! But don’t wait too long to get your hands on a McRib, as they’ll only be available for a limited time.
Who else is excited about the return of the McRib??
