Amidst the chaos going on in the world, our favorite Golden Arch company has brought light to the darkness by announcing something very exciting.

The future is now

This crystal ball has reveled the best possible news we could have hoped for: McDonald's announced that the McRib is coming back and everyone is freaking out.

It's about time

The McRibs are now live and you can officially tell people that there is still hope in this world.

Cancel your plans

This is too important to miss so clear your calendar and grab some napkins because it's about to get saucy.

Stay calm

Clearly, some people have been waiting a long time for the McRib and they are McFreaking out.

This is not a drill

Some fans thought it was too good to be true, but McDonald's was clear in saying that this is the real deal. Don't be a Reynolds, people. Believe the good news.

History repeats itself

The very first McRib was introduced in 1981 on the McDonald's menu. It has been a long awaited delicacy ever since.

The first McRib commercial

Here's the very first McRib commercial, aired in 1981 and it quickly became a sandwich sensation.

Never had a McRib?

Well my friend, you are not living your best life then. There's a reason why people get so excited about this delicious meal coming back to McDonald's and that's because it's absolutely fantastic.

What's so great about it?

McDonald's describes their creation as "made with 100% seasoned boneless pork, McDonald's signature McRib sauce — a sweet, tangy, barbecue-style sauce — and served with dill pickles and mild, fresh slivered onions on a toasted hoagie-style bun." Hungry yet?

Better than Christmas

Is the McRib coming back more important than the holiday season? In short, yes, it really is.

Rush hour

I'm telling you, people will be rushing out the door and headed to their nearest McDonald's to get their hands on one of these babies.

Get in line

McDonald's will be serving the McRib at 9,000 locations across the United States, which is very exciting. Keep in mind that there are over 14,000 McDonald's in the United States, so your closest McRib may not be around the corner.


People are used to the McRib being on and off of the McDonald's menu, but are always loyal when it decides to come back into their lives, unexpectedly but always gracefully.

Siri, where is the closest McRib?

Not sure which McDonald's is participating in bringing back this tasty goodness? Well look no further because McDonald's has thought of everything. All you have to do is download the McDonald's Finder App on your phone or go to the McRib Locater website.

Too easy

This guy is only three minutes from tasty goodness. He is truly #Blessed.

Send me your location

Not everyone can be that lucky. Looks like if you live in Colorado you might have to make a serious road trip to get your McRib. Love knows no distance.

Stay humble

Remember, not every city is blessed with the presence of a McRib. So if you are close to one, consider yourself lucky.

Keep it together

Try your best to stay calm if you don't have a McRib near you. It might be tempting to go crazy or start a riot or blame the government, but there's no need for that. Okay, maybe blame the government.

Dedicated McRib fans

Alan Klein, the creator of the McRib Locator, told Entrepreneur magazine in 2013 that he "nearly drove four hours last year to get one" but "found there was one closer as I prepared to leave." That's a true fan right there.

Too lazy to go to McDonald's?

This year, McDonald's has also partnered with Uber Eats to offer McDelivery on the food delivery app. Now you can get a McRib ordered to your crib with no extra effort.

The McRib will find you

Uber Eats is very excited to be able to deliver your McRib to you and they made this sultry video to get you excited, too.

Not all heroes wear capes


Shoutout to all the Uber Eats drivers who will be delivering miracles from door to door. We see you and we love you all, from the bottom of our McHearts.

Missing McRib

Since the McRib doesn't typically return every year or to every McDonald's location, it's no wonder why people get so excited. The last time the McRib was being sold was over a year ago.

Changing it up

The McRib has gone through three farewell tours in 2005, 2006 and 2007. Their explanation? "We like to change up our menu throughout the year by offering some limited time only items, like our Shamrock Shake in the Spring," they said on their official website. "The timing of the McRib's return can vary from year to year, but most recently, it's made its appearance in the Fall."

Date night

Grab some wine, a nice candle, a couple of flowers and as many McRibs as you can get your hands on for a perfect night in with your sweetheart.

True romance

If you love the McRib, share it with the one you love.

So many feels

The McRib brings out a different side in everyone and we're here to say it's okay to get emotional over a sandwich.

All in moderation

Don't get too excited and get in over your head with a McRib overload. Take it easy at first so your body can adjust to the holy goodness that it is about to experience. This guy is right; you don't want to get a McHeartAttack.

Truly inspired

This guy felt so excited about the McRib, he had to paint about it. What a beautiful work of art.

It's a family affair

Even Family Guy gets excited about the McRib. They've been practicing and preparing for this moment and are an accurate representation of some of us.

The famous McScuse Me Lady

Also, we get to bring back this iconic video. This woman may be the most passionate McRib fan in the world. Don't get in the way of her and her love for McRibs because she will throat punch you.

Be happy

Wherever you are, no matter the distance, go get your McRib. You deserve to be happy and experience a delicious, one of a kind, limited time savory sandwich.

Sharing is caring
