McDonald's May Revive Szechuan McNugget Sauce Because of Rick and Morty

McDonald's May Revive Szechuan McNugget Sauce Because of Rick and Morty

People are going insane for a 90's era Szechuan dipping sauce from McDonald's after a scene in the season premier of "Rick and Morty" sparked people's interest once again.

Rick and Morty's Twitter account jumpstarted the quest for Szechuan sauce with a profane tweet that said "please let us gain enough cultural influence to force McDonald's into bringing back that [expletive deleted] sauce".

A McDonald's chef then revealed after the episode - which is streamed on Netflix in the United Kingdom - that he is looking to bringing the cult back. McDonald's replied, curiously, "McNugga Lubba Dub Dub".

Szechuan McNugget sauce to be specific, which was launched to celebrate the release of Disney's Mulan back in 1998. "That was fake. I'm driven by finding that McNugget sauce. If it takes nine season, I want that McNugget Szechuan sauce".

Ravens trade Timmy Jernigan to Eagles for draft pick
It's a deal that could work out in the Ravens' favor, but it'll take turning that draft pick into a serious upgrade to make it so. Had Baltimore sat back and let Jernigan play out his final year, they might have gotten more production out of him for cheap.

The episode soon turns to more pressing matters - Rick's escape from prison - but the subject of the sauce makes a return at the end of the episode, when Rick makes an epic rant to Morty about it once more. Rather than a flat-out denial or shutdown, Haracz has unintentionally given hope to millions of McNugget nuts around the globe with six short, but Szechauny words (I might just also name my first son after him). The best time for the nugget dipping sauce to return to would be sometime next year, when Disney's live-action adaptation of Mulan comes to theaters on November 2, 2018.

In February, Adult Swim Australia even went as far as taunting fans by posting a video titled "Rick and Morty: New Clip", which was actually a "Rick Roll", via clips of the show wording each line of the lyrics.

Szechuan sauce was only available for a brief period of time, but Rick apparently fell in love with it, so much so that even when he as trapped in his own mind and was being forced to relive his dark past he made sure to stop at a McDonald's drive-thru because the only place where he can taste Szechuan sauce again is in his own memory.
