HL: The McRib is set to return to McDonald’s restaurants throughout Canada
Attention meat-eaters! After a ten-year hiatus, the McRib is returning to Canada.
The beloved sandwich will be available at participating McDonald’s restaurants nationwide for a limited time, starting on Tuesday, Jan. 30.
The boneless pork patty is dipped in BBQ sauce, topped with onions and pickles, and served on a homestyle bun.
Originally introduced to the McDonald’s menu in 1982, the sandwich was removed in 1986, and then temporarily re-introduced to Canadian restaurants in 2014.
McDonald’s Canada says the growing demand for the McRib’s return became difficult to ignore.
“In the last year alone, our team received thousands of inquiries on social media from very passionate Canadian McRib fans asking to bring it back here,” said Alyssa Buetikofer, vice president and chief marketing officer at McDonald’s Canada, in a media release.
“The McRib is truly a fan favourite. It appeals to guests of all ages—from loyal followers who have patiently waited a decade for its return, to our newer fans who have only heard the legend,” she said in the release.
