McDonald's Szechuan sauce returns, thanks to 'Rick and Morty'

  • McDonald's will offer its Szechuan sauce for one day only at select locations following an internet sensation spurred by fans of the show

McDonald's Szechuan sauce is coming back to Chicago for the first time in almost 20 years - and fans have the popular Cartoon Network show "Rick and Morty" to thank.

McDonald's didn't stop there: To promote its new buttermilk chicken tenders, the restaurant is offering a new version of Szechuan sauce at locations across the country, including four in Chicago. Rick Sanchez, the dimension-hopping mad scientist who takes his grandson Morty on increasingly ridiculous (and dark) adventures, just wanted that McDonald's Mulan Szechuan Sauce. Each custom, screen-printed poster allows customers to showcase their sauce passions for Creamy Ranch, Honey, Honey Mustard, Hot Mustard, Spicy Buffalo, Sriracha Mac Sauce, Sweet 'n Sour, Tangy Barbeque and the new Signature Sauce. Now, though, the fast food chain is planning on bringing the sauce back in full force for one day only.

"Guys, we did it".

You'll notice that the promo page doesn't explicitly mention Rick and Morty, though each order for the Szechuan sauce is accompanied by a free poster (while supplies last) that's vaguely alien-themed. "Technology is awesome. But delivering for our customers is better still", McDonald's chef Michael Haracz wrote cheekily in a release.

Tom Petty dies aged 66
Losing Tom Petty now, during a year when the soul of the country seems wracked with uncertainty and turmoil, seems even crueler. He also formed the band The Travelling Wilburys with fellow artists George Harrison, Bob Dylan , Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne.

You'll be able to find Szechuan sauce at two McDonald's restaurants in metro Detroit and more across the USA on October 7 only, so we advise stocking up because not only is the stuff deliciously sweet and tangy, but it can also be flipped on eBay for a hefty profit.

Fans of the animated television show "Rick and Morty" can rejoice. Limit is one per customer and is available with the purchase of Buttermilk Crispy Tenders.

In its announcement, McDonald's doesn't quite cop to responding to "Rick and Morty" fan pressure by re-releasing the sauce.
