As in years past, the item will only be around in the U.S. for a limited time. However, customers in Germany can enjoy the sandwich year-round.
The McRib made its national debut at McDonald's in 1982. Over the years, it has become a fan favorite.
The sandwich features seasoned boneless pork slathered in barbecue sauce, topped with onions and pickles.
"The McRib has been a beloved menu item at McDonald's since its inception nearly 40 years ago," said Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen. "There's nothing quite like the taste of the McRib. To our customers, it's become more than a delicious, saucy moment… it's a season, and it's taking the internet by storm. That's why this year, we're proud to serve the McRib nationwide for everyone to enjoy."
