It doesn’t sell well all year long because people get tired of it.” -McDonald’s USA President Jan Fields
Starting November 2 McDonald’s Corp will once again offer the McRib nationwide, but only for 6 weeks. Despite Fields’ statement above here’s a more facts about the McRib and its locator than you never wanted to know.
Klein “justified his craving by saying that eating McRibs supported the family business. After moving to Minnesota for college, he had trouble finding McRibs. Five years ago, he visited South Dakota and saw the sandwich at a McDonald’s near his childhood home. ‘It rekindled my love of McRibs and made me start thinking it would be nice to know where they were,’ Klein says.”
If you go to kleincast.com, depending on your internet speed, you can see a US map with little indicator popping up for the nationwide locations where the McRib has been spotted.
If you’ve sighted one you can enter the location there and apparently there have been many sightings. The indicators multiply and multiply right before your eyes in a way that lets you know odds are Americans can get more excited about a pork sandwich than midterm elections.
