"It's been 19 years since McDonald's released its Mulan Szechuan Sauce to coincide with the Disney movie's release, but thanks to fan interest and the hit television show 'Rick and Morty", McDonald's is bringing it back for one more day. There, you will be able to get limited-edition posters and stickers featuring McDonald's lineup of 10 sauce, including Szechuan.

Harmon didn't say whether or not Szechuan sauce would make a return in the show's fourth season, which has yet to be confirmed by Adult Swim.

McDonald's is bringing back its special Szechuan sauce for one day only - but if you're in the Lehigh Valley, you'll have to drive a while to get it. An Iowa City McDonald's is one of the select few, according to a McDonald's website. After the promotion, the sauce was removed from all McDonald's restaurants.

Still, despite the price increase, Netflix will remain a much better deal than cable, in terms of viewing time. The majority of subscribers will not be happy with paying $12-24 more per year to receive Netflix .


As you may have heard, McDonald's has described its upcoming rerelease of its beloved Szechuan Sauce as "really, really limited". Employees reportedly won't get official word until Friday. The sauce was given an important, if small, role in the highly-anticipated third season premiere of the animated sci-fi comedy. The fast food chain then later gave away three more containers to fans, one of whom ended up selling his jug to DJ Deadmau5 for an undisclosed amount. When Rick told Morty his sole motivation is "that McNugget sauce". McDonald's seemed to enjoy the mention, as they sent the show's co-creator Justin Roiland a bottle of the sauce. It's unclear whether this batch, or the packets soon to be distributed nationwide, are the same recipe as was used in 1998.

The savory and slightly sweet sauce with hints of soy, ginger, garlic, and slight vinegar notes will be available at participating restaurants on Saturday, October 7. Customers will also receive limited edition, individually numbered, illustrated, screen-printed posters of their favorite sauce; these are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
