"Rick and Morty" Fans Will Now Finally, Finally Taste the Szechuan Sauce

This time, they've got 20 million packets heading to every single McDonald's restaurant. 20 MILLION CUPS spread across all US McD's!
Last year, McDonald's announced a "one-time only, limited-edition" run of the sauce, which was first released in 1998 as a promotional tie-in with the release of Disney's animated movie "Mulan". Fans were disappointed. People wept.
Last April, the premiere of Rick & Morty's third season featured a scene where Rick, the show's protagonist, purchased a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets with Szechuan sauce and revealed that the sauce dictated his entire character arc.
McDonald's capitalized on it with a stunt on October 7, but the sauce was only available for one day at a few locations.
But that's not all: According to the tweet, the company also launched an entire companion podcast called "The Sauce" to answer its fans' "burning" questions regarding the condiment, and to discuss all-things Szechuan Sauce. The condiment with a cult-like following will be available at all McDonald's locations in the USA while supplies last.
Another day, another trade: Rays deal Dickerson to Pirates
Tampa Bay raised some eyebrows when they designated Dickerson for assignment on Saturday following the acquisition of C.J. Dickerson posted solid overall numbers in 2017, hitting.282/.325/.490 with 27 homers in 629 trips to the plate.
That is, of course, until it was mentioned as Rick's primary motivation in the season 3 premiere of Rick and Morty, which led to a demand for its return. The limited batch was at a few McDonald's locations October 7. The next day, McDonald's had to offer fans an apology online.
At the end of the episode, he says he's driven by finding that McNugget sauce. Even the police were called in some situations to keep disgruntled fans at bay.
All of this to announce it will release the sauce to the masses starting Monday.
Given that it's a branded podcast by McDonald's, it tried to put McDonald's in the best light and argued that it had the best intentions when it made a decision to start fulfilling the call for Szechuan sauce.
