Is McDonald’s McRib Canada Coming Back?
On Friday, McDonald’s Canada put out a social media announcement saying that a menu item that fans have been asking for is arriving on August 31, 2021. Could it be the McDonald’s McRib sandwich?
While the company merely just hinted about the item launch, people have started to guess what the item could be.
McDonald’s McRib History
It was first introduced to the McDonald’s menu in 1981 but was taken off the menu due to lack of sales.
The McRib made a comeback in 1989 and remained on the menu in many countries where the sandwich was popular.
From 2006 – 2020, the McRib return to the menu for limited time around the world.
In December 2020, the McRib made a prominent comeback to the McDonald’s USA menu.
Although it was meant to be again another limited time offer, the McRib can still be found in select McDonald’s USA menus in 2021.
What’s in a McDonald’s McRib?
The McRib starts with seasoned boneless pork dipped in a tangy BBQ sauce, topped with slivered onions and dill pickles, all served on a toasted homestyle bun.
