In an exciting turn of events for fast-food enthusiasts, McDonald’s has announced the triumphant return of the McRib sandwich in November 2023. After bidding farewell to this beloved classic in 2022, the Golden Arches has decided to bring back the iconic sandwich for a limited-time run, leaving fans craving its delectable flavors.
Last year’s “farewell tour” left many McRib aficionados heartbroken, believing they had savored their final bites of this saucy delight. The rollercoaster of emotions reached its peak as McDonald’s tantalizingly teased, “The elusive McRib is finally back… BUT this could be your last chance to get it.” But in a surprising twist, it seems that the McRib is here to stay, at least temporarily, as it returns to participating locations next month.
“It turns out not everyone was ready to say goodbye to the McRib,” a McDonald’s representative revealed to The Post, highlighting the enduring love for this uniquely divisive sandwich.
The McRib, first introduced to menus as a limited-time offering in 1981, features a succulent, boneless pork patty slathered in a mouthwatering barbecue sauce. It’s generously adorned with crisp dill pickles and onions, all tucked between a perfectly toasted bun. With its unforgettable combination of flavors and textures, the McRib quickly became a cult favorite, with fans eagerly awaiting its periodic comebacks.
Remarkably, after a hiatus that spanned from 2012 to 2020, the McRib made a triumphant return to the delight of its dedicated fans, as reported by The Tampa Bay Times. This time, McDonald’s decision to resurrect the McRib has once again sparked excitement across social media platforms. Food blogger @snackolator’s Instagram post about the sandwich’s return led to an animated discussion among fans, ranging from joyous celebration to light-hearted jests about the impact on their diets.
“Like Cher, it’s back!!!!” exclaimed one delighted fan. “Thank the snack gods.”
Another fan chimed in, “Glad it’s not the last time we all can enjoy eating it too bad it’s not a permanent part of the menu.”
However, not everyone shares the same enthusiasm for the McRib’s return. Some critics jokingly referred to it as “McSick,” while others expressed their disdain, with one Instagrammer asserting, “Nah, you’re just nasty if you’re eating this.”
Nevertheless, the McRib’s comeback isn’t the only exciting news on McDonald’s menu this season. The fast-food giant has also reintroduced another fan-favorite item, the spicy chicken McNuggets, for a limited time at select locations. These delectable nuggets are expertly breaded, offering a crispy coating and a spicy kick thanks to aged cayenne and chili pepper. Available in four sizes – 6, 10, 20, and 40 pieces – they provide a tantalizing option for spice lovers.
McDonald’s has once again demonstrated its ability to stir excitement and anticipation among its loyal customers. With the return of the McRib and spicy chicken McNuggets, the fast-food chain continues to offer a diverse range of choices to satisfy cravings, whether you’re a devoted fan or an occasional indulger.
In conclusion, McDonald’s has delighted its fanbase with the news of the McRib’s return in November 2023. This limited-time offering promises to bring back the unique flavors and nostalgia associated with the beloved sandwich, while the reintroduction of spicy chicken McNuggets adds another spicy twist to the menu. Whether you’re a devoted McRib enthusiast or looking to spice up your fast-food experience, McDonald’s has something special in store for everyone this season.
