McRib is Back!

McRib is Back

Many years ago, Kathy and I lived in Central Asia for an entire year.  At the end of that year, when we returned to the United States, our first fast food stop was at McDonald’s where I ate my very first McRib sandwich.  To someone who had been out of the country far from the golden arches, it was marvelous.

Little did I know that it was all a big tease.  Later when I was craving that boneless pork patty on a bun with barbeque sauce, chopped onions, and pickles, it had been removed from the menu.  I was crushed.  However, my spirits revived a year later when it returned to McDonald’s.  But, by the time I actually visited a McDonald’s, it was once again off the menu.

Today, it returned.

“Look!” I cried out to my friend Stephen from Zimbabwe, “McRib is back!”

“What’s a McRib?” he asked.

“It’s a pork sandwich from McDonald’s.”

“Is it made of ribs?”

“Not exactly.”
