Season 3 of Rick & Morty came to a close last night on Adult Swim, but fans can ease the pain by chowing down on McNuggets with Szechuan Sauce real soon! Season 3 opened with Rick Sanchez revealing an insane obsession with the sauce, which was only available for a short time in 1989 as a tie-in to Disney’s Mulan. After the episode, nostalgia for the sauce hit a fever pitch and now, McDonald’s is officially bringing back the Szechuan—but for an extremely limited time.
Check out the video below for a more thorough history of McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce.
Official Synopsis: What is the McDonald’s Mulan Szechuan dipping sauce? Rick and Morty season 3 premiered earlier this month and along with it they resurrected a classic dipping sauce from 1998 with one of its jokes.
McDonald’s announced today that it’s bringing back its famous Szechuan sauce for one day only on Oct. 7. McDonald’s has made it very clear that the sauce isn’t going to be available for long, and it’s going to go fast. In a press release, a company representative confirmed the sauce would be available in “limited quantities for a limited run available in restaurants for one day only.”
