Brace yourselves as McDonalds brings back the iconic McRib (but only in the US)

It was last seen in the UK in 2014 (Picture: Twitter)

McDonalds cant seem to stop treating its customers to new and innovative products.

Last week, it was announced that the UK would soon get the chance to try an Indian chicken burger with a naan bun and over in Canada, people can munch on the recently launched PLT (Plant Lettuce Tomato) – a plant-based burger.

The fast food chain is now at it again, but this time its all about that throwback feeling.

Please say hello, once again, to the McRib.

It has been reported that the product will make a grand return to 10,000 locations on Monday 7 October – but sadly, these are all in the US.

The burger – which is filled with a pork patty, drizzled in Western BBQ sauce – first launched in 1981 and has been making sporadic appearances on menus across the globe every couple of years.

We last saw it in 2014 when it was added for a limited time of five weeks, and before that wed waited 12 years (why do you tease us so, McDonalds?).

The McRib is so popular that it has even inspired its own website, dubbed McRib locator, which includes sightings of the rare item.

If social media is any indicator, there are many people who love the dish but also a fair few people who loathe it.

One person suggested that its the hype, not the flavour, that fires people up:…“McRib is back!” has basically become a meme.

I dont think people actually like it.

Someone else said: I need to know who keeps asking for/buying the McRib bc like??? Why is it always back, wheres my turtle coffee, wheres my white chocolate mocha??

Those popcorn chicken things they had??? [sic].

Others were upset that the product isnt available in more of the chains stores.

Ive lived on this earth for 20 god damn years and never had a chance to taste the forbidden fruit, wrote one person.
