McDonald's bringing back Szechuan sauce again

McDonald's bringing back Szechuan sauce again

McDonald's is bringing back the beloved Szechuan sauce popularized by Adult Swim's "Rick and Morty - for at least as long as 20 million packets last".

The fast food restaurant said Thursday that it will ship 20 million packets of Szechuan sauce to all of its restaurants in the U.S.

26, the golden arches will again serve Szechuan sauce across all USA locations - and this time there will be a supply of 20 million packets.

The restaurant promises 20 million packets will go out to all of its USA restaurants, though there are qualifiers in place if you want to score one. The sauce dates back to a limited run in 1998 to promote the Disney film Mulan.

"We disappointed fans and we are sorry".

McDonald's is capitalizing on the insane popularity of its limited-edition Szechuan sauce with a new website, a podcast - and a promise to release more info (but not the little containers of the stuff itself) this Thursday.

McDonald's knows how dark things can get when locations don't have enough sauce to meet customers' demand - specifically, the demands of "Rick and Morty" fans. It could only feasibly produce a certain amount of packets in time for the promotion it wanted to pair Szechuan sauce alongside.

A press release from McDonald's addressed the pandemonium that broke out in October, saying the company had the best intentions but admitting it went very wrong.

Rick and Morty fans: settle down. The next day, McDonald's had to offer fans an apology online.

McDonald's (in) famous Szechuan Sauce has been the subject of controversy since briefly returning to restaurants in October.

As proof that McDonald's kept its sense of humor about #SauceGate, it also has a three-part podcast called "The Sauce" that is out right now on all major podcast platforms.

In one episode, Rick tells Morty that while saving the world, he wasn't motivated by rescuing his family, but rather "that McNugget sauce". Even the police were called in some situations to keep disgruntled fans at bay.
