Assuming McDonald’s of Northwest Florida’s tease is referring to the McRib – and we will – it appears the official McRib rollout will occur on Monday, February 20. While that may be true, it’s also true that there have been reports of McRib sightings as early as this week. I know, I’ve seen them.
When the McRib appeared at select locations last November, it was only available at half of the chain’s US franchises. If you’re planning a McRib hunt this winter, I would suggest checking out the McRib Locator for the latest McRib sightings. Alternatively, last year McDonald’s released the McRib Finder, an iOS mobile app that shows you exactly where the sandwich is being served up. No word yet if that app will be activated for the latest McRib 2017 resurrection. We’ll probably learn more on Monday.
In the meantime, get your napkins ready.
The McRib sandwich features a pork shoulder patty, barbecue sauce, pickles, and onion on a special roll.
