McRib Sandwich Returning From McExile On Nov. 2

Nope, this isn’t a hoax like those McRibble stories from early summer. Fans of McDonald’s sorta-rib-like McRib sandwich will no longer have to drive hours out of their way to find a Golden Arches that carries the saucy delicacy; the fast food chain is bringing it back (for six weeks) nationwide on Nov. 2.

Writes the Wall Street Journal:

On Nov. 2, for the first time in 16 years, McDonald’s Corp. will offer the McRib at outlets across the U.S., but even then, only for six weeks or so. “It doesn’t sell well all year long because people get tired of it,” says McDonald’s USA President Jan Fields.

Let’s just hope the internet doesn’t spoil everyone’s good time by photographing what McRib meat looks like before it is formed into a McRib.
