An Orlando McDonald's will have Szechuan Sauce for one day only

McDonald's announced on October 1 - the day the Rick and Morty season finale aired - they would resurrect the now-famous Szuechuan dipping sauce at select restaurants for one day only: Saturday, Oct 7.

The limited-release sauce is only available at select McDonald's restaurants on Saturday - including the one at 1800 Prescott Road in Modesto. Customers who order the new Buttermilk Crispy Tenders will receive the sauce and will also potentially score a poster featuring the returning condiment.

You can get the limited-edition sauce packets and posters with purchase of Buttermilk Crispy Tenders at participating McDonald's locations in the Kentuckiana area, starting at 2 pm on Saturday. At the end of July, just before the "official" airing of the season three premiere after a surprise livestream of the episode ran for 48 hours on Adult Swim, McDonald's sent a large container of the sauce to Roiland. It was a big hit for McDonald's in 1998, when it was available as a promotional tie-in to the Disney movie, "Mulan". You can find the sauce at the McDonald's at 3050 Carnegie Ave. and 1540 E. 55th St. The same page contains a description of the Szechuan sauce "personality type" that is filled with vague references to Rick and Morty, but nothing that directly mentions the show or any of its characters. "Technology is fantastic. But delivering for our customers is better still", said McDonald's Chef Michael Haracz.

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. After the promotion, the sauce was removed from all McDonald's restaurants.

The McDonald's-inspired gag quickly took hold within the show's fan base and across social media platforms.

Well, you lovely, fast-food-loving weirdos, it worked.
