McRib fans, rejoice! The cult favorite sandwich is making its annual return to McDonald's menus in November 2021. The McRib, a seasoned boneless pork burger wrapped in BBQ sauce and served with shredded onions and dill pickles on a homemade bun, first made its debut four decades ago in Kansas City, Kansas. Since then, it has become a customer favorite thanks to its unmistakable flavor and the launch of social media solidified its status as one of the few menu items with cult followers. Last year, McDonald's gave away 10,000 free sandwiches before McRib's return with its Shave 4 McRib Giveaway. While they haven't yet responded to my query about whether the McRib will be offered nationwide or only in select stores, this will most likely be a national launch again this 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. The McRib officially goes on sale Monday, but some McDonald's restaurants have brought it soon. 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. Over the decades, the McRib has had many moments of fame, such as being linked to the release of the film The Flintstones in 1994 and being parodied by The Simpsons in 2003. On this date, the cult favorite McDonald's mcrib sandwich will return to participating venues across the country.
McDonald's has been in the habit of keeping it on the menu for a short period of time, so get yours quickly before this seasonal item disappears again. And if it brings back fond memories of trying the first McRibs in the 1980s, you can also consider it an opportunity to reflect on what you've done with your life.
