While I have tried very hard to watch what I consume (ever since they started posting calorie counts on the menus), I’m usually a sucker for specialty sandwiches and limited time only deals that seem to be McDonalds working modus operandi. I’m a fan of the 2 for $2 Filet-O-Fish deal during Lent, big fan of the Shamrock Shake, and will occasionally cave the There are few things in the fast food world that can bring me as much joy as the annual return of the McRib to the McDonald‘s menu.
So imagine my absolute pleasure when I saw that it had returned to my local McDonalds!!!! There’s just something about that sauce… those onions… that unnatural rib flavored chunky meat patty… it just makes the world a little bit less obnoxious. I have ALWAYS been a McRib fan, and was devastated when it disappeared from the menu when I was but a wee child. Now that they bring it back nearly annually, I’m okay with it… because really there is only so much “wished it was pork in a patty form” meat that one person can consume.
The 2012 McRib release date was originally scheduled for December 17 according to this article. It seems we may have gotten it a bit early, and I am very okay with that! If you need to see where McRib is available, check out this McRib Map or if you have an Android phone, you can download the McRib Locator App so you don’t waste time driving around and drooling.
