Have they changed the BBQ sauce for the McRib (circa Nov. 2012)?

Is it more tart this year?

I recall it being sweeter for some reason.

Also the pork patty was crunchier than I remember in years past.

    Thank you.

          I just read in this morning's paper that they'll be a seasonal item for the holidays. The source of the article is listed as USA Today, so it seems that it might hit most locations.

            I think it'll go national in December.

            Some markets are getting them a bit early.

                I love the McRib and McD's in general. But the Fish McBites in that article sound so scary. The Filet o Fish is all the fish they need to offer. It's magic on it's own.

        You said you would still respect me in the morning ...

      2. I haven't found one yet. Funny because I was just on the McRib search site looking to see if it was out yet this year. We have had them in December for quite awhile now. The site says they are out in the big city near me but my local McDonalds isn't showing any ads for them last I noticed.

        1. Not available near me yet, but hopefully soon. I'm so excited for my first McRib of the season! I may cry if they don't turn up over here (in Oregon).

            I'll have to start watching the signage on my way by the two near me here in Salem.

              I was successful in finding them at the McD's in downtown Corvallis. I rejoiced, although my friends all turned their noses up and stuck to plain old cheeseburgers (their loss). I'll have to make another McRib run before they go away again...

              Edit to add: OT, but I've been showing everyone that I saw McRib earrings (and necklaces) on Etsy... Genius.

              1. re: calmossimo

                I figured that by the time I noticed them in Salem, everyone else would have already, so I didn't update. Well, that and the fact that I don't think I've ever eaten a McRib!

          2. Saw the McRib at our local store a few days ago.
