After four long months, the promised sauce is on its way my fellow Rick and Mortians!
A bit of context for those who may not know or lost faith along the way. Last year after the long-anticipated release of season 3 of Rick and Morty, fans excitedly tuned in to find out about the misadventures of their favorite grandpa grandson duo. Especially after what happened to Rick after he turned himself in.
Rick, as well as his interrogator, go into his memories to get the formula for the portal gun. Only to be derailed, in traditional Rick and Morty fashion. They end up at a McDonald’s drive through and purchase their promotional dipping sauce for their Mc Nuggets, in honor of Disney’s 1998 film release of Mulan.
After the episode premiered Rick and Morty inadvertently resurrected the discontinued McDonald’s product. McDonald’s, noticing the buzz it received from fans on social media, made plans to have a limited-edition release of the sauce in October of last year. However, they under estimated the amount of fans that really wanted to try this sauce. Leading to a bit of a sauce shortage fiasco.
Fast-forward to now, McDonald’s made an announcement on its twitter February 20th letting fans know when and where the famous and sought after Szechuan sauce will be available to the public. McDonald’s also announced a podcast dedicated to the burning questions revolving the mysterious illustrious Szechuan sauce and the process of getting it to the hungry masses.
The sauce is coming people!
