McDonald's bringing back Szechuan Sauce for one day

Well, that was until McDonald's made a decision to cash in on just how much fans love Rick and Morty.

An image from one episode of Rick and Morty featuring the Szechuan sauce.

A search for 4500 University Ave., Madison, on Google Maps shows two results: one for McDonald's and another for "Szechuan Sauce Place". (Yes, that's the Sunday of New York Comic Con).

The Szechuan Sauce comes in your standard Sweet and Sour/BBQ Sauce sized packet, with the same alien art that is on the limited edition posters they're also giving out on Saturday.

"Guys, we did it", McDonald's Chef Michael Haracz said. "After almost 20 years (and perhaps a bit of time travel) we're even doing the impossible".

It looks like fans of Adult Swim's Rick & Morty and/or "the year's most talked-about dipping sauce" will need to mark October 7th on their calendars.

Essentially it's a promotion for McDonald's new buttermilk chicken tenders.

"It's really amusing because if you're going to get robbed, get robbed by McDonald's". "And if McDonald's is going to be so generous I don't want to lure them in and then take a crap on their product". In the episode, Rick had told Morty that he has tried to get his hands on the sauce for a long time and that it was the motivating factor behind everything he has done on the show. "After returning with the Szechuan Sauce from the always-1998 dimension, C-1998M, we did some science and now we have a bit more sauce!" The same page contains a description of the Szechuan sauce "personality type" that is filled with vague references to Rick and Morty, but nothing that directly mentions the show or any of its characters. "If it takes nine seasons, I want that McNugget Szechuan sauce". It was created to mimic traditional Chinese Szechuan Sauce, and it came complete with Happy Meal Chicken McNuggets and one out of a set of eight Mulan toys. "Look I'm not being sarcastic when I talk about this".

In April, a Ebay seller made almost $15,000 after he sold a bottle of the dipping sauce that he found in an old auto. Interested readers can check out McDonald's official website to see which locations will consist of this item.
