The McRib debuted in 1982 to the delight of pork lovers, but by 1990 interest died and so McDonald's removed the sandwich from the full-time menu, instead offering it as a specialty item at restaurants across the country.
"The McRib sandwich is seen by our customers as one of the most legendary menu items we have to offer," says McDonald's spokeswoman Tara Hayes. "By offering it in limited time periods it keeps the product fresh in the minds of our guests and maintains the demand to keep it coming back." And gives them time to jump start a their diets.
