UPDATED: Mystery promotion coming to Southern California

About a week ago we were tipped off to a unique billboard in Southern California alluding to an upcoming promotion in the region.

Now that promotion is live, we see that the McRib Tour is a promotion where McRib fans can grab some McRib Swag at various meeting points between now and December 11, 2016.

There are a few different options for shirt, or perhaps for what type of pig you relate to. On the website users can generate three words describing their “role” on the tour. Presenting this badge at one of the sanctioned events results in the user grabbing some swag, which appears to be at a minimum shirts that match with the badge assignment.

Original Post:
After visiting the webpage for this billboard, we noticed that there is a countdown clock, with at the time of this post, a 5 day countdown until some type of promotion with the McRib and Dr. Pepper begins. For a region that skipped the McRib last year, this appears to be a potential reward for the wait. Requests for more information were not returned at the time of this posting. We will updated this post with more information as it becomes available.

Central America McRib Update

It appears that our original report of the McRib returning in El Salvador was a bit underestimated. We now note that the McRib has also returned in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua.

The offering here is very much like that earlier reported for El Salvador with the Potato Wedges (McPatatas). It is worth noting that the yellow sauce they are offering with the McPatatas at some locations is actually a cheese sauce called McQueso. The are also offering a wide range of retro toys within their promotions, although we do not note these toys elsewhere for purchase. Based on the Facebook pages for the McDonalds in these countries, it appears that they often pool together on promotions such as this.

If you find a McRib make sure to report it http://mcriblocator.com/report.html and send us a photo of your receipt (showing location and date purchased as well as your McRib order) to photos@mcriblocator.com . Thank you!

While we haven’t seen much activity out West, we are optimisitic somewhere will get it. Earlier rumors were that part of California would get a chance to grab a McRib, so we await to see if this comes to fruition. We also received an earlier rumor that the McRib will not be back in Florida until March.

If you find a McRib make sure to report it http://mcriblocator.com/report.html and send us a photo of your receipt (showing location and date purchased as well as your McRib order) to photos@mcriblocator.com . Thank you!
