Fans of the McRib will have to wait a little longer this year to chow down on McDonald's specialty sandwich. McRib won’t be hitting shelves in October, but do expect to see it by the end of the year. 

A memo obtained by Ad Age says "after looking at ways to strengthen the fourth-quarter 2012 OPNAD calendar," it will be on the menu in time for the holidays in late December.

The memo also said that in place of the McRib this fall, the chain will market two new products: the Cheddar Bacon Onion Angus burger and a similarly dressed chicken sandwich, positioned as premium items with higher prices.”

For those that don’t remember the McRib is made of boneless ribs, smothered in a barbecue sauce and topped with pickles and onions on a toasted bun.

So not only are we going to be chowing down on McRibs later this fall, but we get a new cheddar bacon burger? That’s incredible news!

Do you remember this McRib commercial?
