McDonald’s announced earlier this week on social networks that « the mcrib returns on 10.31 but it’s his farewell tour ».

Does that mean this will be the last time the McRib graces McDonald’s locations?

Or does that mean that once you have a McRib, you won’t eat it again because it’s so terrible?

One person posted a photo from the promo that says “McRib Farewell Tour. This could be your last bite.

She captioned it, « That’s one hell of a catchphrase. »

She’s right, considering it almost sounds like a threat.

Since the announcement, people have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the final(?) return of the boneless pork sandwich after someone posted a video of one being made.

« Can this even be considered food? » Mike Sington captioned the video.

Rex Chapman explained, « McRibs are primarily ground boneless pork shoulder emulsified with water, spices, dextrose sugar and preservatives to refine its flavor and texture. »

He added: « The smoky flavor of the meat comes from liquid smoke, a mild distillate of smoky vapor. »

It’s unclear where the footage was taken as there are still days until the McRib returns, but many people have weighed in on the sandwich.

While some were also disgusted, calling it « nasty » and saying it looked like « a fried kitchen sponge soaked in BBQ sauce », there were more McRib defenders who simply asked, « what did you expect- you? »


We apologize, but this video failed to load.

« I’m not saying this is fancy food or anything, but…this is what frozen ground meat tastes like, » one person tweeted. “Yeah, it’s shaped and molded to look like (more like) pork ribs, but I don’t mind that. McRibs taste pretty good for what they are.

Another person added: « As someone who really doesn’t like McRib, I’ve been watching this whole video waiting for a time when they like… milking bbq sauce from a living genetic experiment or something , but frankly after watching this, I’m *more* likely to eat one than before?”

A third person, dripping with sarcasm, asked, « Did you get the feeling they smoked and boned ribs there? »

The company did not respond by press time, so it’s unclear if McRib’s farewell tour will come to Canadian restaurants.
