McDonald’s announced that it will make Szechuan Sauce available at certain restaurants on October 7, 2017 following an outpouring of demand from fans and a certain cartoon…In the season three premiere of Rick and Morty, Rick 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,” he says in the episode. “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!”
In July, McDonald’s sent the 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? Read below from McDonalds:
“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!
