McDonald's Aids Rick Sanchez's Quest for Szechuan Sauce

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

Like most Dan Harmon productions, Rick and Morty is replete with constant references to pop culture esoterica. However, Harmon confirmed that he had no idea that McDonald's was bringing back the Szechuan Sauce and while the fast food chain also never mentions Rick and Morty as the inspiration, the art on the sauce's package as well as a poster contains just enough homages that it's obvious.

The viral interest in McDonald's old Szechuan Sauce, thanks to the show "Rick and Morty", has led one local McDonald's to bring it back. The whole thing starts at 2 p.m. on October 7. (Yes, that's the Sunday of New York Comic Con). And, Szechuan Sauce and each of the traditional McDonalds sauces will receive special screen printed posters dedicated to each particular sauce. "After almost 20 years (and perhaps a bit of time travel) we're even doing the impossible".

During an unannounced season premiere on April 1, Rick devised a plan to rescue his family and destroy the "Galactic Federation", but eventually revealed his actions were driven by a personal scheme to get a hold of "that Mulan McNugget sauce".

Ex-Real Madrid defender Carvalho jailed for tax fraud
Reports have stated that the Portuguese defender has been charged for tax fraud from his time playing for Real Madrid . He departed to rejoin Mourinho under the pristine spotlights of Real Madrid to add a La Liga title to his name in 2012.

Rick Sanchez's favorite dipping sauce will return for one day only and at only one Iowa location. "After returning with the Szechuan Sauce from the always-1998 dimension, C-1998M, we did some science and now we have a bit more sauce!" Fans took to Twitter, Facebook, and other social networking sites to demand that McDonald's reintroduce Szechuan Sauce to their menu. It was only a matter of time before the sauce entered the rest of America's. In the season three premiere, Rick [voiced by Roiland] explains that he's trying to get his hands on the sauce.

The shows co-creator, Dan Harmon, recently told Polygon that the sauce mentions in the episode were meant to poke fun at the show's other creator, Justin Roiland.

Naturally, the joke became a meme, and Mickey D's responded by literally sending the show's creators a bottle of Mulan sauce.
