McDonald’s is bringing back Szechuan sauce after an outcry from “Rick and Morty” fans.
McDonald’s announced that it will make the famous sauce available at certain restaurants on Oct. 7.
In the season three premiere of the Adult Swim sitcom, Ricky ranted about the condiment:
“That’s my one-armed man. I’m not driven by avenging my dead family Morty, that was FAKE! I’m driven by finding that McNugget Sauce. I want that Mulan McNugget Sauce, Morty. That’s my series arc Morty! If it takes nine seasons, I want my McNugget dipping Szechuan Sauce, Morty!”
At the end of July, McDonald’s sent show creator Justin Roiland a 64-ounce jug of the sauce, which debuted in the summer of 1998 as a promotion for “Mulan.”
But how can you get your hands on Szechuan Sauce? McDonald’s says:
“We’re giving away 1,000 limited-edition, hand numbered, screen-printed posters for all 10 sauces in our legendary lineup—including Szechuan Sauce. That’s right, collectible art, worthy of the pop-culture status fans have given their favorite sauces.
In addition, after nearly 20 years (and perhaps a bit of time travel) we’re even doing the impossible…
On Oct 7, together with the collectible sauce-themed posters, we’re also giving away a one-time only, limited-edition, run of Szechuan Sauce in select restaurants. And when we say limited, we mean really, really limited!
