McDonald's Szechuan Sauce maybe back for good

"And instead of being one-day-only and limited to select restaurants, we're bringing more-a lot more-so that any fan who's willing to do whatever it takes for Szechuan Sauce will only have to ask for it at a nearby McDonald's", they added.

On Saturday, McDonald's apologized for the whole debacle.

So, the company made this promise: "Szechuan Sauce is coming back once again this winter". Thankfully, it doesn't look like you'll need a portal gun and a different dimension to get your wish of bathing in a bathtub of that brown gloop, but you know what they say, never stand between someone and their Szechuan.

Between the costumes, the memes and the cross-state travel, you, the fans showed us what you got.

Wubba lubba grub-grub, it looks like the world is still gripped by Szechuan sauce fever thanks to a one-off joke by Adult Swim's Rick and Morty.

McDonald's (US) addressed the situation on Monday, posting a statement on Facebook promising "lots more #SzechuanSauce and locations". Details soon. And that's the wayyy the news goes!

The sauce first appeared in the Rick & Morty season 3 premiere that aired as part of an April Fool's Day stunt on earlier this year. It was said to be a real-life promotion tied to the 1998 release of the Walt Disney Co. movie "Mulan".

"Rick and Morty" is incredibly popular, especially with the young millennial buyers McDonald's is eager to attract as its appeal with the age segment - which is demanding healthier, more transparent food options - continues to wither. But the promotion ran afoul of devoted fans of the trippy sci-fi show when supplies quickly ran out, according to The Drum.

While it was troubling to hear reports that some McDonald's employees were trying to sell the sauce under the table, that wasn't almost as upsetting as the fact that some bad apples felt this was a big enough problem to start fights, with some locations having police involved in the fallout that followed.
