Can you believe that McDonald’s has been using the McRib as a ploy to get more people to buy it for 32 years? Well, seeing that people for some reason flock to a food item that is only available for a limited time, fast-food giant Burger King plans on releasing a McRib of their own.
The BK Rib Sandwich joins the likes of other recently released summer themed sandwiches like the Memphis Pulled Pork sandwiches and a line of Carolina BBQ sandwiches and sweet potato fries. Burger King will also introduce a new BBQ Chicken Salad and line of Oreo-infused desserts.
BK’s new rib sandwich has actually been available for 10 months but was tested in Shreveport, La. The sandwich was said to have “extremely well,”. The recommended price, which will vary by market, is $3.49 a la carte and $5.59 as a meal — with fries and soft drink.
The limited-time BK Rib Sandwich will be boneless like McRib, have a tangy sauce and will come with sweet bread and butter pickles. It will be sold nationally beginning May 21
