The new sandwich will be rolled out with the rest of BK's summer menu in a few weeks, including sweet potato fries and a return of its pulled pork sandwich. Just like the McRib, it will stay only for a limited time with a price point of about $3.50.
Although this writer does not understand the appeal of the McRib, I do thank it for inspiring one of the most classic Simpsons episodes on record. Here again is the RibWich YouTube clip I roll out whenever I get a chance to talk about the McRib and any and all versions by McDonald's competitors.
