McDonald’s is reviving their beloved Szechuan sauce in honor of Rick and Morty (again).
“Try, for a moment, to remember what 2017 was like. It was a simpler time, a simpler Rick, if you will, when you could stand in a crowd full of people at McDonald’s without anxiously eyeing a guy wearing his mask as a chin diaper. It was back then that Rick and Morty kicked off its third season of TV (and one of its more famous episodes) with Rick revealing that his entire motivation in life was based around McDonald’s Szechuan dipping sauce–a sauce which was released in 1998 as a limited promotion for Disney’s Mulan.”
