The McRib is back, ladies and gentlemen! That’s right, America’s favorite mystery meat is now being served up “fresh” at McDonald’s restaurants around the country. And to make sure you don’t miss out, Mickey D’s launched a new app – The McRib Finder.
No, this isn’t a joke.
Of course, the official McDonald’s app has been out for quite some time now, and it also helps you find restaurant locations, so I’m not quite sure why this app even exists.
I get it – not every store sells the McRib, but still – did we really need a full-blown goddamn app for this? Would it not have made more sense to just include some type of indicator inside of their existing app?
And humorously enough, there seems to be quite the backlash in the app’s review section on Google Play. Check out Frank M.’s review:
One McDonald’s in the entire state of Arizona has McRibs. What a waste of time this app is. The McDonald’s is not even in a metropolitan area.
I’m not sure if that means the app isn’t displaying all of the restaurants that have the McRib, or if there’s really just one of them in the entire state of Arizona serving them. Either way, it’s kind of funny. I checked the stores around my hometown, and it seems to display them properly, so who knows?
At any rate, if you want a good chuckle, head over to the Google Play Store using the link below and give the McRib Finder app a try. Then make sure to troll McDonald’s in the review section. You can poke fun at them for this story about a hilarious Black Friday tweet gone wrong, or one of the many others the world has to offer about the Golden Arches.
