McDonald’s brings back a favorite sandwich for a limited time
McDonald’s plans to announce Monday that the McRib, usually available when individual restaurants feel like making it, will be sold at all U.S. locations through Nov. 14.
The barbecue sandwich made without bones has been one of McDonald’s more popular features. A Facebook group called, “Bring Back the McRib!!!” as well as Twitter tags and blog posts have been devoted to the return of the McRib.
The boneless patty is dressed with onions, pickle slices and barbecue sauce. It was introduced nationally in 1982, after the company’s then-president decided to add pork to the menu.
The sandwich contains 500 calories and 26 grams of fat, only slightly trimmer than the restaurant’s Big Mac, which has 540 calories and 29 grams of fat. While it is usually up to the local franchise owner to decide whether or not to sell the McRib, last November marked the first time in 16 years that McDonald’s made the sandwich available at every U.S. restaurant for about three weeks.
It is not yet known if the McRib will make a comeback next year.
