“The McRib has been a beloved menu item at McDonald’s since its inception nearly 40 years ago,” she in a statement to Business Insider. “There’s nothing quite like the taste of the McRib. To our customers, it’s become more than a delicious, saucy moment… it’s a season, and it’s taking the internet by storm. That’s why this year, we’re proud to serve the McRib nationwide for everyone to enjoy.”
Fans Rejoiced Over the McDonald’s McRib on Twitter
Several fans of the sandwich took to social media to celebrate the sandwich’s return. Several users posted GIFs from popular TV shows like “Family Guy” for instance to channel their excitement.

Meanwhile, another user reflected on working at McDonald’s themselves while in high school.
When I worked at Mcdonald’s in high school we kept the McRibs in a crockpot. And this wasn’t a McDonald’s issued one. It was my manager’s crock pot that she brought in. The McRib is not rooted in reality.— 🎄 America is musty🎄 (@DragonflyJonez) December 2, 2020

Not everyone is a fan though. For instance, one user compared the sandwich to a Banquet style microwaveable meal.
