On April 1st of this year, Rick and Morty debuted their long-awaited season three premiere, “The Rickshank Rickdemption.” In the course of the episode, Rick professes his love and desire for the Szechuan sauce Mcdonald’s used for the promotion of the movie Mulan. Afterward, the internet erupted with cries for the special sauce to return so they could use it on their McNuggets. Petitions were drawn, research was conducted, and the plea went out by the fans, “Give us the Szechuan sauce!” McDonald’s has finally heard the outcry and the sauce will flow.
The Sauce Returns
For one day only, on Saturday, October 7th, McDonald’s will bring back the sauce for one day only.Though there is a chance it will be available for more than a day, the overwhelming demand for the product will result in it going fast. Given the shows fan base and the eagerness to have the sauce return, this claim is justified. After more than 20 years (since Mulan came out) it’s impressive to see the power Rick and Morty has to resurrect a fast food promotion. McDonald’s previously sent a bottle of the sauce to creators of the show, which fans took as a sign of hope it would return to the restaurant again.
How should you prepare yourself for this event? If you’re like me, you’ll order a 20 piece McNugget, a large fry and coke, get all the Szechuan sauce allowed, and enjoy some Rick and Morty episodes while you feast on the spoils of war. Now with any luck, Rick and Morty can get Kentucky Fried Chicken to bring back their original Sweet and Sour sauce. One can only hope.
