McDonald's reintroducing beloved menu item nationwide
McDonald's is bringing back the McRib sandwich nationwide in November 2023.
This is a surprise, as the company had previously said that the McRib would be gone forever.
Some people believe that the McRib retirement was a publicity stunt, as McDonald's is now bringing it back so quickly.
The McRib is a cult favorite sandwich that has been parodied on The Simpsons.
It is made from a seasoned, boneless pork sensation, slathered in tangy barbecue sauce, topped with slivered onions and tart pickles.
The McRib was first introduced in 1980 and has always been a limited-time menu item.
There is a third-party website called the McRib Locator that tracks the sandwich's sporadic appearances.
McDonald's hedged its bets a bit in the press release for the McRib Farewell Tour by saying that they hoped the sandwich would be back someday.
It's unclear how fans will feel about the McRib's quick return, but it's sure to make a lot of people happy.
