Szechuan Sauce Returns After 'Rick and Morty' Fan Outrage

12 October, 2017, 18:19 | Author: Cecil Buchanan

Developed in Singapore more than 10 years ago, the curry sauce has become one of McDonald's most popular and iconic condiments here.

Justin Roiland, the co-creator of Adult Swim's smash hit "Rick and Morty", told The Washington Post this summer, only partly in jest, that while writing the show, he has feared angering its millions of hardcore fans.

Rachel Marie, a 23-year-old graphic designer from MI, woke up at 9 a.m. and headed to McDonald's with a friend to stand ninth in line for the limited edition sauce.

Dan Harmon, co-creator of "Rick and Morty" was also displeased at the gesture since McDonald's never officially tied the promotion to the series despite taking advantage of how it popularized the extinct sauce. As those keeping track will recall the fast food chain announced that they would have the sauce available at select McDonald's for one day only along with special posters.

According to Richard Adams, a former McDonald's franchisee, "There were some stores that just had 20 packets". Packets of the sauce also quickly popped up on eBay for some pretty insane prices.

After fans of the breakout Adult Swim hit show "Rick and Morty" flocked to McDonald's locations across the nation to get ahold of the Szechuan sauce discussed in the series, one diehard fan traded his vehicle for a single packet of the sauce.

Some fans have called for a boycott of McDonald's. The famous and rare sauce will be a standard offering in McDonald's come winter, and they also assured the hungry fans that the high demand for Szechuan would be met with equal supply of the fabled sauce. Another tried to sell the tangy Signature sauce.

The sauce for McDonald's Chicken McNuggets was released on Saturday, Oct. 7.

Fans' frenzy for the sauce mimics that of the multiverse-hopping, ethically challenged mad genius Rick Sanchez in the episode in question.
