McDonald's Szechuan Sauce set to return after 19 years

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

Rick Sanchez, the not-quite hero of Cartoon Network's Rick and Morty, can access an infinite number of universes, but there's only one thing he really wants: the special Szuechuan dipping sauce for McNuggets that McDonald's made to promote the 1998 Disney movie Mulan.

This Saturday, the sauce will make its return to participating locations - inducing 2 in Portland - as a part of McDonald's unveiling 9 limited-time sauces to go with its new buttermilk crispy tenders. "If it takes nine seasons, I want my McNugget, Szechuan dipping sauce".

Getting a taste might not be easy, though.

McDonald's announced this afternoon that it will be offering 10 types of sauces alongside the new Buttermilk Crispy Tenders on Saturday, October 7.

Szechuan Sauce is back at McDonald's. - Left: still from Adult Swim's Rick and Morty.

An Omaha restaurant is expected to have only 40 packets, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

Badger State Szechuan sauce chasers can also find it in Beloit at 45 State St. and in Milwaukee at 1614 E. North Ave., 2455 W. Wisconsin Ave. and 6631 W. North Ave.

And now for the disclaimer: I think Rick and Morty is the best show on television right now, and was indeed desperate to get my hands on some Szechuan Sauce because of its association with the show (with one of the show's best gags, to boot).

In July, McDonald's sent a jug of Szechuan sauce to the show's co-creator Justin Roiland after finding it in "a dimension where it's always 1998".

Roiland, Harmon and other "Ricky and Morty" writers lobbied the fast-food chain to revive the condiment on Twitter after the release of their episode in April, praying for their cultural influence to persuade the giant corporation. One of the lucky winners put their jar up on eBay, where bidding reached excesses of $15,000. It was only a matter of time before the sauce entered the rest of America's.

The Fairborn location also will be giving away very small quantities of hand-numbered, screen-printed posters for all of McDonald's sauces - including Szechuan sauce.
