McDonald's beloved Szechuan dipping sauce is coming back

McDonald's beloved Szechuan dipping sauce is coming back”

After hearing about the sauce's renewed popularity thanks to Adult Swim's Rick and Morty, McDonald's produced three more bottles of it that were randomly given away to a trio of fans via Twitter, much to the chagrin of everyone who didn't manage to snag one. That's my series arch, Morty!

McDonald's has hinted at bringing back the dip after it was name-checked in Rick and Morty's season three premiere, first aired on April Fool's Day this year.

At the time, Roiland shared a photo of the half-gallon, enthusiastically announcing to his followers that "we f--ing did it" in his caption.

"Ready to celebrate? We're giving away 1,000 limited-edition, hand numbered, screen-printed posters for all 10 sauces in our legendary lineup-including Szechuan Sauce".

You can search which McDonald's locations near you will be giving out Szechuan sauce on the company's Buttermilk Crispy Tenders website. It promotes a collectors'-edition poster and the rollout of a brand-new Signature Sauce (merely described as "Unique, Stylish, Tasteful") that customers can try while they're at a store for the "really" limited run of Szechuan. Social media played a huge part in this obscure condiment becoming available again - so never doubt the power of Rick and Morty to change the world, if only for a day. That includes the Szechuan sauce, which has its own appropriately trippy poster.

"I'm driven by finding that McNugget sauce", Rick said in the "Rick and Morty" season premiere.Adult SwimMcDonald's is bringing Szechuan McNugget sauce back to the masses.

For now, Rick and Morty fans should just get themselves lined up in a McDonalds this Saturday.

Have we just witnessed the first-ever successful campaign by a cartoon to bring back a fast food product? At first, the chain did almost nothing - it tweeted the words "McNugga Lubba Dub Dub" in a reply to @RickandMorty.
