'Rick And Morty': McDonald's To Release 20 Million Szechuan Sauce Packets

McDonald's Szechuan sauce, initially released in 1998 in a limited edition run to promote Disney's Mulan, reentered pop culture previous year when the cartoon scientist Rick obsessed over finding the elusive sauce on Adult Swim's Rick and Morty. That's my series arc, Morty!

The insane demands and tweets lead to an announcement from McDonald's that more sauce will be on the way in the winter, and that day is almost upon us.

On Wednesday, McDonald's officially confirmed the return of its much ballyhooed condiment, which will be available starting on February 26 at all USA restaurants - but only for patrons who make a "qualifying purchase".

Some customers will probably only care about the sauce itself, and that part is easy. McDonald's is bringing back its famously discontinued Szechuan sauce - again.




More information on the return of the sauce can be found at McDonald's We Want The Sauce website. "Rick and Morty", a sci-fi comedy cartoon, featured the sauce in an episode, prompting a petition signed by 38,742 people to bring back the product.

We heard you and have been working tirelessly to bring back The Sauce. It couldn't have ever imagined what it would unleash by giving into that whim. And perhaps more importantly: they will reveal how to get more sauce.

It is ridiculous to think how popular something like a nugget sauce could get just by briefly being mentioned on an animated television show. "These fans basically managed to get the world's largest restaurant chain to materialize their demands". The podcast, called The Sauce, will feature "real interviews with McDonald's corporate executives and Chef Mike, angered Sauce lovers and even electronic DJ Deadmau5 for a glimpse into what happened". It could only feasibly produce a certain amount of packets in time for the promotion it wanted to pair Szechuan sauce alongside.

"McDonald's is making it right and fans will be able to get the sauce with qualifying purchase distributed across every restaurant in the U.S., while supplies last", wrote the company in an official release.
