Rick And Morty Fans Get McDonald's To Bring Back Szechuan Sauce

Rick And Morty Fans Get McDonald's To Bring Back Szechuan Sauce

Following the Rick And Morty joke, fans mounted various online campaigns urging Maccy D's to bring back the 20-year-old dipping sauce. That's my series arc Morty!

Fortunately, fans in the United States will at least be able to quench their pain with the sweet, tangy taste of McDonald's Szechuan dipping sauce, with the fast food chain confirming that Rick's favourite condiment - which he ranted and raved about back in the season three premiere - is returning to their restaurants for one day only.

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. As it turns out, fans won't have to wait that long after all. The promotion is being couched inside another promotion for a new kind of chicken tenders with buttermilk batter, and Szechuan is just one of nine sauces from the past McD's is resurrecting for one day. Although McDonald's did not respond to Polygon's question about whether the sauce was brought back because of Rick and Morty, the company did call the treat "the year's most talked-about dipping sauce".

The dip's life span was brief and largely unexciting: McDonald's rolled it out in the summer of 1998 as a tie-in to Disney's new animated movie Mulan.

Reaction to the move has ranged from "Wubba Luba Dub Dub!" to "Tiny Rick!" because Rick and Morty fans like to talk about smart they are but then just spout mindless catchphrases. When these people set goals (or make outright demands), they tend to achieve them, ' McDonald's say.

As revealed during the Rick & Morty Season 3 premiere on April Fool's Day, Rick is apathetic toward most things and existence in general. It was all but forgotten until the season three premiere of Rick And Morty, when Rick told Morty: "I'm driven by finding that McNugget sauce".
