For One Day Only, McDonald's Will Sell Szechuan Sauce Again

03 October 2017

It's to coincide with the chain releasing its new Buttermilk Crispy Tenders, and the fact that they're giving away 1,000 limited-edition screen-printed posters for the various sauces available to dip them in (gosh, what a prize!). That's my series arch, Morty! Ever since Rick and Morty popularized the delicious 1998 Mulan Szechuan Teriyaki sauce, it was inevitable that McDonald's would eventually cave to the enormous fan demand for this classic, forgotten flavor.

A website promoted by McDonald's corporate chef, Mike Haracz, alludes to the sauce's release being a direct result to its prominent feature in an episode of the nihilistic cult cartoon show "Rick and Morty"-which chronicles the interdimensional travels of a teenage boy and his alcoholic super-genius grandfather".

At the time, Roiland shared a photo of the half-gallon, enthusiastically announcing to his followers that "we f--ing did it" in his caption.

It's finally happening. Szechuan sauce is returning to McDonald's.

Now, McDonald's is bringing the sauce back, along with nine others, to promote its new Buttermilk Crispy Tenders.

Iran strongly opposes independence for the Iraqi Kurds, fearing it will provoke separatists among its own Kurdish population. The referendum was also held in disputed areas between Erbil and Baghdad, including the oil-rich province of Kirkuk.

The chain is also releasing 1,000 limited edition commemorative screen-printed posters to go along with each sauce, also to be available on October 7 at participating locations. One fan ended up selling his jar of Szechuan sauce to DJ Deadmau5 for an undisclosed amount after an auction for more than $4,000 fell through.

When the season premiered, the main character Rick was obsessed with the dipping sauce, and McDonald's jumped at the chance to be part of the marketing phenomenon.

For now, Rick and Morty fans should just get themselves lined up in a McDonalds this Saturday.

The sauce itself doesn't appear to have particularly szechuan roots-it's more of a plum sauce that's somewhere between sweet and sour and barbecue sauce, according to people who remember trying it in the '90s. The fast food franchise offered a tie-in deal that packed Szechuan dipping sauce in with Chicken McNugget Happy Meals. And now that Rick and Morty's third season has come to a close, we'll need all the pick-me-ups we can get. At first, the chain did almost nothing - it tweeted the words "McNugga Lubba Dub Dub" in a reply to @RickandMorty.
