McDonald's offers a sweet surprise for "obsauced" fans

McDonald's McDonald's

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

My bet is that fans are going to demand McDonald's bring back the sauce, if not permanently at least with a frequency similar to something like the McRib (only Szechuan Sauce is good... come at me). Originally created as a tie-in promotional for Walt Disney's animated movie Mulan back in 1998, Szechuan Sauce gained a new rabid cult this last April Fool's after the surprise release of the Rick & Morty Season 3 premiere. So if you're a sauce-enthusiast, make your way to a McDonald's on October 7.

On October 7, McDonald's restaurants across the U.S. will have Szechuan sauce in "limited quantities" before the sauce presumably disappears again. (Yes, that's the Sunday of New York Comic Con). "Technology is wonderful. But delivering for our customers is better still", said McDonald's Chef Michael Haracz. "After almost 20 years (and perhaps a bit of time travel) we're even doing the impossible".

For one day only this Saturday, fans can head to four Chicago McDonald's locations to get a serving of the popular sauce. - Left: still from Adult Swim's Rick and Morty.

And it will only be at some locations (one in Lexington) and in (very) limited supply.

The McDonald's-inspired gag quickly took hold within the show's fan base and across social media platforms.

In July, McDonald's sent a jug of Szechuan sauce to the show's co-creator Justin Roiland after finding it in "a dimension where it's always 1998". "If it takes nine seasons, I want that McNugget Szechuan sauce". But I personally thought it was a sauce that was trying too hard in a world where with McNuggets sauce you just want something to taste like honey or like a BBQ sauce. "Look I'm not being sarcastic when I talk about this".

There's a full list of the almost 1,000 restaurants that will have sauce at www.buttermilkcrispytenders.com. Interested readers can check out McDonald's official website to see which locations will consist of this item.
