Thanks to Rick and Morty, McD's Brings Back Szechuan Sauce

The chain is also releasing 1,000 limited edition commemorative screen-printed posters to go along with each sauce, also to be available on October 7 at participating locations.

At the end of the episode, Rick reveals to Morty that his entire raison d'être is to taste that sauce once again.

But what's also amusing is how this is not a direct Rick and Morty tie-in, so they can only drop winking references to the show by nonspecifically mentioning mad geniuses and portals.

In other words, it still won't be easy to get your hands on the sauce.

It's not very often that we can thank a cartoon for a real-life windfall.

But even if he's able to keep a clean sheet this time around, there's still a decent chance we see a missed FG in this one. Ingram, with 5½, is second in the National Football League and Bosa is coming off a rookie season in which he had 10½.

A few months later when Season 3 kicked off in earnest, McDonald's held a contest that concluded with three lucky fans getting their own bottles of Szechuan sauce.

The IRL history of McDonald's Szechuan sauce dates back to the late '90s, when Disney's Mulan released.

The demands of "Rick and Morty" led to a massive online campaign to bring the sauce - a delicious mix of garlic, chili peppers and Szechuan peppers - back to the present day.

The move may seem odd for those who haven't been paying attention to Rick and Morty or Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland's Twitter account. It's a ploy to get us sucker consumers interested in the launch of their new Buttermilk Crispy Tenders.

But unlike its original 1998 run as a tie-in to the animation Mulan, the Szechuan Sauce will accompany the fast-food chain's Buttermilk Crispy Tenders instead of its classic Chicken McNuggets.

Right around the show's third-season debut in April, McDonald's Szechuan Sauce became something of a cult item among fans of "Rick and Morty" after the character of Rick - a mad scientist - admitted to having an obsession with the discontinued sauce.
