McDonald's Aids Rick Sanchez's Quest for Szechuan Sauce

According to a report by Den of Geek, McDonald's posted a special "Szechuan Sauce" poster on its official website a few days back. McDonald's hasn't acknowledged that Rick and Morty has anything to do with this one-day return, but the extraterrestrial cover certainly feels like a nod to the show's role in all of this.

In a statement Thursday, the fast-food giant describes it as a "savory and slightly sweet sauce with hints of soy, ginger, garlic, and slight vinegar notes".

Getting a taste might not be easy, though. Well, it looks like Rick, Morty, and all of their fans will soon be able to sample the once-forgotten Szechuan Sauce.

Rick and Morty fan Tony Kowalski of St. Clair Shores, 39, has never tried the sauce but plans on making a trip to McDonald's this weekend to score a packet. Four Tampa Bay McDonald's will start serving the sauce on October 7 at 2 p.m.

In this case, telling your Home "where's my phone" will ping the nearest Android device paired with your Google account. If they don't see the male voice option, they should make sure they have updated the Google and Home applications.

Starting at 2 p.m. Saturday, select McDonald's locations will offer packets of the sauce while supplies last. "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!"

"Guys, we did it", said McDonald's Chef Michael Haracz.

McDonald's will gift fans with 1,000 limited-edition posters, each celebrating one of its 10 sauces, like Honey Mustard, Sweet & Sour, Creamy Ranch, and of course, Szechuan Sauce. In the third season Rick and Morty premiere episode, "The Rickshank Rickdemption", Rick is interrogated by a member of the Galactic Federation (as voiced by Nathan Fillion), who wants to know what the secret to Rick's portal gun is.

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. I want that Mulan McNugget Sauce. "If anyone from McDonald's is reading this, I don't see anything wrong with what they're doing and clearly neither does their legal department".
