The McRib returned to McDonald’s just a couple weeks ago, and while the company loves to hype up the return, are people really excited about it?

“They should stop making it come back. I really couldn’t care less about it coming back personally. Though I’ve never eaten it, the sandwich looks incredibly gross, which makes me not want to not even bother trying it,” said senior Jackie Lang.
