Attention All Rick and Morty Fans! The Sauce Is Back!

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

Like most Dan Harmon productions, Rick and Morty is replete with constant references to pop culture esoterica. Harmon said the inclusion of the Szechuan sauce joke began as a way to rip on co-creator Justin Roiland, who was obsessed with the sauce, but he's amused that McDonald's pushed forward with bringing the sauce back. "If it takes nine seasons, I want my McNugget dipping sauce - Szechuan sauce", the show's lead character, Rick, said in the season premiere.

Well, now you might be able to get some new Szechuan sauce even without a time machine.

As it turns out, Rick may not have to wait that long, because McDonald's is putting a (limited) supply of Szechuan Sauce in locations this October 7th.

The chain also is giving away 1,000 limited edition screen-printed posters at each of its locations (even those not offering the sauce) that pay homage to each of its 10 dipping sauces. "After almost 20 years (and perhaps a bit of time travel) we're even doing the impossible". The entire list of restaurants that will have the sauce can be found. To get one, you have to order the buttermilk chicken tenders.

The promotion is part of McDonald's launch of its new Buttermilk Crispy Tenders and Signature Sauce. "And if McDonald's is going to be so generous I don't want to lure them in and then take a crap on their product". "After returning with the Szechuan Sauce from the always-1998 dimension, C-1998M, we did some science and now we have a bit more sauce!"

The sauce, which ran as a limited-time offer to promote "Mulan", was later glorified on Cartoon Network.

McDonalds responded to the craze on Twitter, and in late July, sent the creative team behind Rick and Morty a personalized bottle of Szechuan sauce.

If you're not familiar with how this current Szechuan Sauce craze got started, here's a breakdown.

In fact, according to the fast-food chain, 200 locations nationwide will have the sauce.
