McDonald's McRib sandwich is back

McDonald's McRib is back on the menu

The McRib pork sandwich returns to McDonald's menu again this year. The health-conscious are appalled (it has 500 calories, 26 grams of fat and 980 milligrams of sodium, according to a Reuters story), but McRib fans are ecstatic. It seems the barbecue-sauce-smeared boneless pork patty molded into the shape of ribs just can't stay away — remember the 2005 "McRib Farewell Tour"?  

Last year the McRib returned to McDonald's nationally for the first time in 16 years, and the company's sales rose 4.8% in November.  

This year it's available at all McDonald's locations through Nov. 14. Read Twitter reactions to the McRib at Money & Co
