from Cattle Network:
McDonald’s is dumping the McRib sandwich following a last chance for its fans (editor's note: both of them) to "savor" the pressed and formed pork patty topped with pickles, onions and BBQ sauce on a special (editor's note: not sesame-seeded) McRib bun.
Select cities in California, Kansas, Missouri, North Carolina, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia are hosting the McRib Farewell Tour, the company said. (Editor's note: Was this voluntary?)
The McRib made its debut twenty-three years ago as an occadional promotional item - some say the occasion was spurred by an excess of pork trimmings that could be had at a cheap price. The McRib will disappear from the McDonald's menu at the end of the "McRib Farewell Tour."
