The McRib is back.

This morning, McDonald's announced via its official Twitter account that its storied pork sandwich would return to locations nationwide in a few weeks.

"Turns out we're not good at keeping secrets. The rumors are true. McRib returns Nov. 2 for a limited time," the post read.

In another Twitter post, McDonald's noted that this marks the first time McRibs have returned to restaurants nationwide in 16 years. The sandwich has made encore appearances in different McDonald's markets in the past few years.

Yes, I do remember the McDLT. Not bad at all and a shame that it was discontinued.

What I really wish they would bring back are edible French Fries. Ever since they made them “Healthy” they really suck.

Other than that: God Bless McD’s, may Gov’t leave it alone.

Has it really been 16 years? I can remember the McRib like it was yesterday!

And November 2? The day the Republican / Conservatives come back and the McRib comes back. Can life get any better?

Hasn’t McRib been on and off since about 1975. I remember Arsenio Hall making a joke about them being gone that I can’t get away with repeating because I’m not black so that had to be about 1986.

McRibs are probably made from this stuff:

Mechanically separated chicken (and pork)

I happen to believe they are made from recycled footballs and bowling shoes.

Aren’t clam bellies sort of ... gritty?

(Or maybe the clams are supposed to be “purged” in a bucket of cornmeal prior to cooking.)

Y’know, the McRib was one offering I could just never get into. The one I tried didn’t have much flavor other than the pickles.

Now, the sandwich I *do* miss was the Cheddar Melt. A good sized patty topped with grilled onions and cheddar sauce in a rye bun. Mmmm!

I recall a few years ago... well more than a few... this was in 2002-2005, here in NJ they offered a Philly Cheesesteak. I remember looking up the ingredients... for the bun they listed it as a “McRib bun”.

azodicarbonamide, mono- and diglycerides, ethoxylated mono- and diglycerides, monocalcium phosphate

The anti bloating agents added during the heating process basically help neutralize the aftertaste these compounds and ingredients can produce.

Burger King had a hot ham ‘n cheese sandwich called the Yumbo years ago; that disappeared too.

The McRib is one of the more disgusting things I’ve ever had, dont even want to think what went into it. The Shamrock shake isn’t gone, I had a few around St Patricks Day 2010. I don’t know where you live but I see them at every McDonalds in the area during that time period.

The "grittiness" of clam bellies is due to the grains of beach sand that is in them. I actually prefer gritty clam bellies as it tells me that these clams are fresh and not overly processed. Reminds me of the days we used to go clam-digging and then steam the clams that very evening in a large pot over an open fire (with a few lobsters thrown in).

After a good night sleep, I remember a little more about the McDonald's clam roll. It was actually called the "McClam Belly Roll" on the menu and I'm now pretty sure it was summer of 1979 that these were available as I remember driving there to get them and I had gotten my drivers license for the first time in April of 1979.

Argh...The "shamrock shake". Very good when the McDonald's you purchased it from made it from mint ice cream. But some communist McDonald's made it out of vanilla ice cream and green food coloring! Horrible! And there was never any warning as to what you'd get-some sites sold the REAL shamrock shake, others that dyed pseudo atrocity.

I still get a shamrock shake every time St Patrick's day rolls around...Mercifully, our McDonald's uses mint ice cream, as God and nature intended.

I’ve dug clams (and cooked and eaten them) and know what it’s like to have “a bit of beach” in each clam. Cape Cod restaurants that served fresh fried clams (whole clams, strip plus belly) had that bit of grit in each bite.

WSJ had a story about this earlier in the week.
Apparently McRib availability rotates around the country but this is one of the rare times McD’s is offering it nationwide.

Apparently there are websites where afficionados post geographic availability during the year.

The clam roll might have just been a regional New England offering. McD’s does a few of those sometimes to try to cater local tastes, but they usually don’t last. Here in the South, they came up with the Southern style chicken sandwich to compete with Chik-fil-A, but I think it’s been discontinued. I actually think it could have been popular in areas in where they weren’t in direct competition with CFA, but they were never going to win on the sandwich CFA invented.
