Default McDonald's is Bringing Back Szechuan Sauce for 1 Day Only due to "Rick & Morty"

McDonald's Brings Back Szechuan Sauce after "Rick and Morty" Reference
by Christian Holub
Oct 2, 2017



Like most Dan Harmon productions, "Rick and Morty" is replete with constant references to pop culture esoterica. Earlier this year, the Adult Swim cartoon’s season 3 premiere delivered a masterstroke example of this tendency with an extended digression about Szechuan sauce, a special chicken nugget dipping sauce that McDonald’s once issued for a limited time as promotion for the Disney animated film Mulan.

The bit inspired the show’s devoted fans to pressure McDonald’s to bring back the sauce.




Chef Mike Haracz, who is listed as the “manager of culinary innovation” at McDonald’s, tweeted at "Rick and Morty" co-creator Justin Roiland on Sunday that their prayers had been answered.

Your fans showed us what they got, now we got to bring it back. Super limited-run Szechuan Sauce, only on 10/7!




Haracz included a link to a website announcing new “Buttermilk Crispy Tenders” from McDonald’s — but more importantly, the site announces that McDonald’s will indeed be bringing back Szechuan sauce to limited restaurants for one day only on Oct. 7, along with colorful posters representing each of the 10 sauces McDonald’s has used over the years, including Szechuan sauce.

"We Want Sauce!": Police Called after McDonald's "Rick and Morty" Promotion Heats Up
by Anna Livsey
Oct. 8, 2017



A McDonald’s public relations stunt has ended in chaos and acrimony after the fast food chain promised fans of the TV show "Rick and Morty" a limited edition, long out of production Szechuan dipping sauce and then swiftly ran out.

Police were called to at least one outlet after people in queues for the sauce began getting angry and chanting “we want sauce!





Fans of "Rick and Morty", a hugely popular US science fiction cartoon that riffs off the Back to the Future films, descended on McDonald’s restaurants in cities across the US on Saturday after the chain announced it would be selling a limited run of a long out-of-production Szechuan dipping sauce that is referenced in the show’s third season.

However, things turned sour when fans, who according reports had queued for hours in some places, were told there was no more sauce.




While at a restaurant in Newark, angry customers held up protest signs to demand the sauce they had come for.

In some parts of the US, fans encountered stores that had not received the promised sauce and staff who were not aware of the promotion.

In other places, stores reportedly only got 20 packets of sauce.





McDonald’s, which in its press release for the promotion said that the sauce release would be “really, really limited”, has apologised to fans that missed out.

"The best fans in the multiverse showed us what they got today. We hear you & we're sorry not everyone could get some super-limited Szechuan."

Ultimately, the fallout from the stunt did not dampen demand for the sauce, with packets and limited-edition posters currently listed for hundreds of dollars on Ebay.

"Rick and Morty" Fans Rejoice! Szechuan Sauce Returning to McDonald's
by Nick Romano
Feb. 22, 2018



The powers that be at McDonald’s severely underestimated the blood lust "Rick and Morty" fans had for “The Sauce,” a.k.a. the tangy Szechuan sauce from the 1990s. They don’t intend to make that mistake again.

Starting Monday, Feb. 26, the golden arches will again serve Szechuan sauce across all U.S. locations — and this time there will be a supply of 20 million packets.



We did not anticipate the overnight crowds, the cross-state travel and the amazing curiosity, passion and energy fans showed,” read a statement from McDonald’s.

Our super-limited batch, though well-intentioned, clearly wasn’t near enough to meet that demand. We disappointed fans and we are sorry.

Just wondering if anyone got the chance to try the Szechuan Sauce yet? I went today; tastes very sweet.
