UPDATE: McDonald's Calls McRibble A "Hoax"!

Anyone whose mouth was watering after hearing the rumor that McDonald’s was going to release the McRibble, a bite-sized version of their sorta-meat product the McRib, prepare to be disappointed. We checked with the folks in Oak Brook and they tell us this is all just wishful thinking.

When contacted by Consumerist about the purportedly leaked McRibble ad, a rep for the company replied:

This is a hoax. This is not something that we are testing, nor is this something that will be made available. However, the famed McRib will continue to make an appearance on our menu in the future!

This news will be sad to some, a relief to others.

What is truly sad: The news of the Angus Snack Wrap is 100% true.
