Long time fan Evan recently sent us a photo of a McRib advertisement for the McRib at a McDonalds in Williamsport, PA.
At first, my eyes were drawn to the sandwich, then quickly to noting the always spectacular buy a 2nd McRib for only $1 offer. Of course, I then noticed the slogan for this season “We’re bringing saucy back.” and can’t get the referenced song out of my head (dang you Justin Timberlake!).
Then it dawned on me something was different. Can you spot it? This isn’t the first time we have encountered this, however it has been a long time since we have (roughly 5 years to be more precise). Here is a photo from back then where you can see the same difference:
Still can’t see it? Here it is, the bun shown in the photo is not the typical McRib bun. Instead the photo shows a ciabatta bun being used. While I don’t recall this being bad, I still prefer the standard bun. Not to worry, Evan indicated that the bun offered was not what was pictured but actually the standard bun.
So what do you think? Time for change, or leave it be? Vote below.
If you have been lucky enough to have a McRib this season, did you notice anything new?
