I can NOT get behind the McRib. It’s like mystery meat coated in jelly. So, yeah. No thanks. But, I know a ton of people who love the McDonald’s sandwich, including my  grandpa. If you’re one of them, I have good news for you. Starting Monday, October 29th, you’ll be able to grab the McRib in over 9,000 locations in the U.S.

For those who don’t know, the sandwich consists of seasoned boneless pork, barbecue sauce, onions and pickles on a hoagie-style bun. It’s been off menus for about a year, and it was first launched in 1981.

“While McDonald’s has ushered in many new items this year – such as fresh beef in our quarter-pound burgers – we know our fans love this limited-time classic,” McDonald’s chef Mike Haracz said in a statement.

A McRib has 480 calories, 24 grams of protein, 45 grams of carbohydrates, 22 grams of fat and 890 milligrams of sodium, according to the company. If you have the newest iOS on your phone, you can download the McRib Finder app. I do not, and will not download it. So, hopefully there are some McDonald’s locations servin’ it up near Sacramento.
