2014 US McRib Release Month confirmed

We just a received a forwarded email from McRib fan Bill (thank you Bill!) which contains a correspondence with McDonalds regarding the return of the McRib.

The key take aways from the email are that the return will be October and that it will be available at participating locations nationwide!

With Monopoly season spinning up, history shows the McRib will not appear before the Monopoly finale. This hints to a late October McRib return.

If/when you find a McRib, please mark your sighting at McRibLocator.com and be sure to send us a photo (photos@mcriblocator.com) of your receipt showing the purchase so that we may mark it as confirmed.

McRib to return in the United States Fall 2014

Our sources revealed this weekend that McRib patty production is just getting under way! The past two years production began mid August and resulted in the McRib returning to menus starting anywhere between October to December. With production starting a month later, it seems more likely the McRib will be back late November/ December. No word yet on if this will be a nationwide release or if it will see a limited release like last year.

If you haven’t had a chance to yet, now is an excellent time to go check out our revamped website. Check our previous post on what is new, and be sure to let us know what you think.

Website Update

We are pleased to announce that we have recently completed an overhaul of the website. Let us know what you think.

Highlights:
1) Easier to find the nearest McRib using our find page. If your browser supports geolocation and you opt to share that with us, we can search for the nearest 5 sightings to you. Your location is only used at the time of lookup, you will need to refresh the page as you move about.

2) Reporting a McRib Sighting has moved to a dedicated page. We had too much going on on the map page before, so we have simplified this. Alike the find page, the reporting page can use geolocation data to simplify the reporting process.

3) Embedded search and legend for map. Again, to help simplify what content goes with what, we pulled the map off to its own page. When the map loads, you will see a “Legend” button at the bottom of the map. Click it to be reminded what the color and icons shown represent. There is also a search button at the top of the map allowing you to filter your search or to look back to see where the McRib had been reported. In the past.

4) The webpage now has a mobile friendly viewing experience. That pesky menu bar is now available in a mobile specific layout that allows easier navigation of the site. The new find and report features should work great too.
