I’ve never understood the fascination with this pork sandwich that McDonald’s seems to roll out about once a year for a limited time. If it was all that great, wouldn’t the add it to the menu?
But for those of you that are fans, mark your calendar for December 2nd when this fan-favorite returns. Not familiar? It’s seasoned boneless pork, swimming in a smoky, tangy barbecue sauce. It’s then topped with slivered onions and tart pickles on the bun to round out the flavor profile.
The McRib has been a beloved menu item at McDonald’s since its inception nearly 40 years ago,” Linda VanGosen, vice president of menu innovation, said in a statement. “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.”
