McDonald's In A Sticky Situation With Saturday's 'Rick and Morty' Sauce Promotion

People lined up outside of a Manhattan McDonald's hoping to get some Szechuan sauce. At the time this

McDonald's released the dipping sauce in limited quantities on Saturday in participating outlets across the US, CNBC reported on Sunday.

McDonald's promised to "make things right" with miffed "Rick and Morty" fans and bring back its coveted Szechuan Sauce.

There are a lot of passionate fans of "Rick and Morty", and so a reference to a long-forgotten sauce produced by a fast food chain suddenly meant that there were hundreds of people also clamoring for its return.

Bowing to public pressure MacDonald's issued a public apology to fans of the sauce and stated it would bring the sauce back in winter. The sauce, which was originally a promotional offering that coincided with the release of "Mulan" in 1998, has flown back on people's radars thanks to jokes about it on the popular Adult Swim animated series. And after all of that, McDonald's gave into customer demand-even rude and disgusting customer demand-to make them happy.


Yesterday, we were truly humbled by the awesome curiosity, passion and energy this community showed to welcome back Szechuan Sauce-even if just for one day.

McDonald's had offered the sauce on Saturday at select locations. Millenials were recently reminded of its existence when "Rick and Morty" character Rick claimed his sole motivation for time travel adventures has been to track down the condiment, calling it his "one-armed man". One fan ended up selling his jar of Szechuan sauce to DJ Deadmau5 for an undisclosed amount after an auction for more than $4,000 fell through. "The best fans in the multiverse showed us what they got today". Seriously, the police had to be called at a few locations because fans were so angry that there was no sauce.

"Our super-limited batch, though well-intentioned, clearly wasn't near enough to meet that demand", the company said in a release.

"In the last 24 hours, we've worked to opened every portal necessary", McDonald's writes in the statement.
