|LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — To the enthusiasts who search far and wide year after year; the devotees who demonstrate their passion in poem, song and petitions, too; and the loyalists who advocate on platforms from Twitter to City Council: We hear you loud and clear. The wait is over.
Just in time for the holiday season, McDonald’s restaurants across Southern California are granting the wishes of famously dedicated and vocal McRib fans by bringing back the beloved sandwich on November 21. After a two-year absence and tireless campaigning from impassioned supporters, the McRib, along with frequent collaborator Dr. Pepper, will hit the road for the highly anticipated Pork & Pepper Comeback Tour, visiting Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties.
“Southern California McRib fans are among the most passionate, dedicated and creative in the world,” said Paul Tulaphorn, McDonald’s franchisee and association president of the local McDonald’s owner operators group. “We’re excited to reward their loyalty and join them to celebrate the return of an icon.”
The McRib is back at participating McDonald’s restaurants for a limited time. The McRib features seasoned pork, McDonald’s signature McRib® sauce—a sweet, smoky, tangy, western barbeque style sauce—dill pickles and mild, fresh slivered onions served on a bun.
