McRib is Back: Celebrating 40 Years of the Iconic McDonald's Sandwich

McDonald's is bringing the McRib back to restaurants across the country starting Monday, and it's time for McRib lovers to rejoice! The iconic barbecue sandwich, which first debuted in 1981, is returning to participating restaurants for a limited time. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the McRib, and it's sure to be a hit with fans. The McRib is a boneless and seasoned pork sandwich topped with a generous layer of barbecue sauce and served on a homemade roll with shredded onions and dill pickle. It wasn't an instant hit when it first launched, but over the decades it has become a fan-favorite menu item.

Mike Bullington, senior file manager at McDonald's, said in a statement that the idea of the sandwich was “to enjoy it during the colder seasons.” The slightly sweet and sour barbecue sauce pairs perfectly with the sour pickles and the crunch of onions to create a sandwich that keeps people coming back every time news of its return comes out. On Thursday, the fast-food chain announced that the fan-favorite sandwich will return annually in November. This anticipation has been brewing once again, as the sandwich returns in time to warm us up for the fall. The McRib has had many moments of fame over the years, such as being linked to the release of the film The Flintstones in 1994 and being parodied by The Simpsons in 2003. Others suggested that McDonald's should make the sandwich a permanent item on the menu rather than offering it just for a limited time every year. Still, some people were disappointed by the news and said they would like the fast food chain to bring back other popular items instead of the McRib. Yes, it's true - after almost a year since its last release, McDonald's iconic McRib sandwich is back! The fast-food chain announced Thursday that its beloved barbecue sandwich will return to participating restaurants across the country in November.

This year marks 40 years since McDonald's launched its McRib, so there is a good chance that this year's launch will be bigger than ever. McRib fans across the country have been eagerly awaiting its return, and now their wait is finally over. The McRib will be available at participating restaurants nationwide starting Monday, November 1st. So get ready to enjoy this classic dish on the McDonald's menu - it's sure to be a hit!.
