McDonald's bringing back Szechuan sauce after Rick and Morty reference

The savory and slightly sweet sauce with hints of soy ginger garlic and slight vinegar notes will be available at participating restaurants on Saturday October 7. The promotional dipping sauce was originally released in 1998 for the Disney movie

SzeChuan sauce is making a brief return to McDonald's restaurants across the country. But in the age of memes and super-fandom, Rick and Morty viewers have kept the joke alive online, even starting a petition asking McDonald's to bring back the sauce. That is, until the season 3 premiere of Adult Swim's "Rick & Morty", where a ticked-off Rick goes on a constant tangent about how good the sauce was.

While there, fans can also pick up one of 10 limited-edition, custom screen-printed gig-style posters, each inspired by one of McDonald's dipping sauces. It will be available at only four McDonald's restaurants in South Florida on October 7, starting at 2 p.m.

In 1998, McDonald's released a special ginger and soy flavored sauce to promote Disney's animated film Mulan. It was only available for a limited time and disappeared quietly, that is until it became a punch line in the "Rick and Morty" show two decades later. "Technology is fantastic. But delivering for our customers is better still", said McDonald's Chef Michael Haracz. Other than the now cult favorite Szechuan Sauce, McDonald's will be serving up Tangy BBQ, Sweet & Sour, Sriracha Mac and plenty of other unique combinations.

Simona Halep defeated Shaparova for the first time în her career
In the quarter-finals, she meets the victor between 11th-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland and Russian Daria Kasatkina. After not playing Maria Sharapova in two years, Simona Halep played against the Russian for the second time in six weeks.

"Rick and Morty" follows Rick, a frequently intoxicated, nihilistic mad scientist, and his grandson Morty, a perpetually anxious teenager, on their adult-themed adventures across planets, universes and dimensions. "And if McDonald's is going to be so generous I don't want to lure them in and then take a crap on their product".

Select restaurants will have limited quantities of Szechuan Sauce dipping packets while supplies last. One St. Petersburg and three Tampa McDonald's will carry the sauce, according to the fast-food chain.
