McRib is Back: The Iconic McDonald's Sandwich Returns

The moment McRib lovers across the country have been waiting for has come. The iconic McRib sandwich is back on the menu at McDonald's, and it's sure to be a hit with fans of the fast-food chain. The McRib starts with seasoned boneless pork dipped in a spicy BBQ sauce, topped with shredded onions and dill pickles, all served in a homemade bun. It's been a while since McDonald's customers were able to sink their teeth into a juicy McRib, but the popular sandwich will return to the menu once again in just a few weeks. On Thursday, the fast-food chain announced that the fan-favorite sandwich will return annually in November.

The day before, the company's Twitter account hinted that it had some interesting news to share and encouraged its followers to stay tuned for its next tweet. When the hamburger chain talked about the arrival of the McRib, many Twitter users were on cloud nine, as it has been almost a year since the sandwich was last released for a limited time. True McDonald's fans know that the McRib is nothing new. In fact, it has existed (intermittently) for 40 years. It includes a boneless pork pie seasoned with BBQ sauce that is then topped with shredded onions and sour pickles with dill, all on a homemade bun.

The slightly sweet and tart barbecue sauce pairs perfectly with the sour pickles and the crunch of onions to create a sandwich that keeps people coming back every time they hear of their return. Many diehard McRib fans came out of nowhere to declare their love for the sandwich, which is known for its boneless, seasoned pork and generous barbecue sauce topping. 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. Trying to figure out who decided this was a better idea than bringing back snack or breakfast wrappers around the clock, others suggested that McDonald's should make the sandwich a permanent item on the menu rather than offering it only for a limited time each year. It's something the company has done in Germany, where the sandwich is available all year round. You wouldn't have to “bring it back” if you didn't stop selling it.

The hype is non-existent now, there's no reason to continue this lol The McRib will be available at participating McDonald's locations across the country in the U. S. UU. For a limited time via takeout, self-service, through McDelivery and the McDonald's app. To celebrate the sandwich's 40th anniversary, McDonald's announced a contest Thursday in which it will give away digital versions of the fan-favorite sandwich, almost as spicy as McRib himself.

The contest for the first McDonald's NFTs or non-fungible tokens, unique pieces of virtual art that cannot be duplicated, starts Monday on Twitter. The nutritional information on this website is derived from tests performed in accredited laboratories, published resources, or information provided by McDonald's providers. If you have the McDonald's app, you may have received a reminder to place your McRib order shortly before it disappears.
