To the dismay of its many fans, the McRib is disappearing from the McDonald's menu. After Nov. 14, McDonald's will no longer offer the pork sandwich nationwide (although some restaurants carry it periodically). Can

Probably because that pic was sent out showing the frozen formed mean puck that was the mcrib before it was cooked.

I don't know what it is about the McRib - nostalgia maybe - but I love them.  I grew up in Cincinnati and the McRib was only available periodically - and without rhyme or reason.  We could go three months or two years before they were back on the menu.  When they were - the McRib was available at every McDonald's in the tri-state region.

 

The other thing was you never knew how long they would stay on the menu - again, no rhyme or reason.  It could be a couple weeks or a few months.  No matter, when they were selling McRibs - you got there, fast!  You order at least a couple each time - and get back as quickly and often as possible.

 

Still to this day, I perk up whenever I hear McDonald's is selling McRibs again.  Not that they are really all that tasty - rather it's the sense of urgency from knowing it's a rare, limited "special" occasion - coupled with great childhood memories.

Don't they just wait for pork prices to hit rock-bottom and then make them?

I didn't think this was ever a "national menu" item, our local franchise owners always said it was a regional item that regions rotated when they felt like it...

yeah I dont know what they are talking about. seeing even advertisements say """ITS BACK FOR A LIMITED TIME"". I never seen a store have it all year round.

 

and the corp store down the street from me just starting selling it as it does every year at this time.

alright my neighbor who owns many mcdonalds franchises says this article is BS... here's what happened

 

the mcrib was always a regional rotation thing, last year McDonalds TRIED to nationalize it as a set time period all mcdoanalds would sell it in November to pump end of year sales.. well it didn't help so now it's right back to where it was 2years ago as a they roll it out per region when they want item not controlled at a national level...

 

thus it's not gone, it's just going to show up when your region wants to sell it
