McDonald's Is Bringing Back Its 1998 Szechuan Sauce...For One Day Only


Posted on

If you're a fan of Rick and Morty, then you probably know why people have been obsessed with McDonald's Szechuan Sauce lately.

Adult Swim

The Season 3 opener of the Adult Swim show featured Rick ranting about how good the sauce was, even though it was only offered for a limited time in 1998 as a tie-in to Disney's Mulan.

Shortly after the episode aired, McDonald's sent Justin Roiland — the show's co-creator — his very own bottle of the delicious sauce.

The rest of us, sadly, were left out in the cold, sauce-wise.

To help promote its buttermilk crispy tenders, McD's is offering Szechuan Sauce in a select few of its restaurants on Oct. 7.


You'll need to check if your local restaurant is participating first, and then you'll probably need to show up early, since McDonald's is being very clear that the sauce is available on a "really, really limited," first-come, first-serve basis.
