McDonald's Szechuan sauce returns, thanks to 'Rick and Morty'

It's most likely that the sauce will come in little packets like McDonald's other dips and getting ahold of more than a couple might prove to be hard.

Now, McDonald's across Tampa Bay - and the country - are likely to have long lines on Saturday as devoted fans try get their hands on a limited edition McNugget sauce from the '90s the show made popular.

So why all the rage?

McDonald's Szechuan sauce is coming back to Chicago for the first time in almost 20 years - and fans have the popular Cartoon Network show "Rick and Morty" to thank. To coincide with the upcoming Disney film, McDonald's released a new limited-time condiment, Szechuan teriyaki dipping sauce.

Attention All Rick and Morty Fans!

Naturally, the joke became a meme, and Mickey D's responded by literally sending the show's creators a bottle of Mulan sauce. The fast food giant will bring its Szechuan dipping sauce back to select locations this Saturday.

As it turns out, McDonald's listens to its customers. Four Tampa Bay McDonald's will start serving the sauce on October 7 at 2 p.m. Customers will also receive limited edition, individually numbered, illustrated, screen-printed posters of their favorite sauce; these are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

This promotion is a very rare thing for McDonald's to do, so it's something that everyone who is a fan of Rick and Morty should check out if they have the chance!

Only three restaurants in Colorado will be offering the sauce Saturday. On April 1st, 2017, the first episode of the third season had a surprise airing with no announcement prior to the premiere. It isn't almost as sweet as I expected, but isn't salty like soy sauce either. Later in the episode - following a prison break, multiple mind swaps and Rick's casual destruction of a galactic empire - he reveals to Morty that his only real motivation in life is getting his hands on the discontinued Szechuan sauce.
