Szechuan Sauce back in local McDonald's

In Lexington, sauce lovers will need to go to the McDonald's at 357 South Limestone next to the University of Kentucky campus.

The chain also is giving away 1,000 limited edition screen-printed posters at each of its locations (even those not offering the sauce) that pay homage to each of its 10 dipping sauces. "The [version of Mr.] Poopybutthole with the slightly shorter hat and McDonald's vague allusions to 'Hey, you seem like someone who likes traveling the galaxy kind of through a portal sort of thing, maybe you should have some Szechuan sauce'". This year, Adult Swim's "Rick and Morty" premiered its third season with a call for the sauce's return.

Roiland, Harmon and other "Ricky and Morty" writers lobbied the fast-food chain to revive the condiment on Twitter after the release of their episode in April, praying for their cultural influence to persuade the giant corporation. I got me some Szechuan Sauce!

For the first time since 1998, McDonald's will offer its rare Szechuan dipping sauce for one day only. This is, therefore, assumed to be a direct collaboration with the Rick (and Morty) show.

"Guys, we did it", McDonald's Chef Michael Haracz said.

More fine print: You can only get it if you dine in, not at the drive through, and quantities are limited "and may vary by restaurant". "After returning with the Szechuan Sauce from the always-1998 dimension, C-1998M, we did some science and now we have a bit more sauce!"

Haracz included a link to a website announcing new "Buttermilk Crispy Tenders" from McDonald's - but more importantly, the site announces that McDonald's will indeed be bringing back Szechuan sauce to limited restaurants for one day only on October 7, along with colorful posters representing each of the 10 sauces McDonald's has used over the years, including Szechuan sauce. "I want that Mulan McNugget sauce, Morty!" Interested readers can check out McDonald's official website to see which locations will consist of this item.
