PRNewsFoto/McDonald’s(CHICAGO) — Fans of the popular McDonald’s McRib can stock up on their favorite seasonal sandwich in time for Christmas. 

According to a memo obtained by Advertising Age, McDonald’s plans to bring back the McRib starting at the second half of December.  McDonald’s planned to unveil the sandwich in mid-October, but the date was pushed back in an effort to boost year-end sales.

The McRib is a 500-calorie rib sandwich with barbecue sauce, pickles and onions. It hasn’t been available in the United States since last October.  In March, restaurants in Austria unveiled the McRibster, a jazzed-up version of the original.

Two new menu items will be unveiled this fall: a cheddar bacon onion angus burger and a chicken sandwich. Fish McBites are scheduled to appear on the menu in February, after the McRib is taken off.

A representative from McDonald’s could not be reached for comment.
