“Rick and Morty” fans and others who have craved McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce for nearly 20 years are in luck.
The fast-food chain is bringing back the popular dipping sauce that customers fell in love with.
BuzzFeed reported that the sauce is part of the restaurant's promotion of their buttermilk crispy tenders, but it will only be in a few select locations Oct. 7.
“(W)e’re also giving away a one-time only, limited-edition, run of Szechuan Sauce in select restaurants. And when we say limited, we mean really, really limited,” the company said.
In 1998, the sauce was a promotional tie-in with the release of the Disney animated film “Mulan,” according to Fox News.
In addition to the sauce itself being available in limited amounts, there are other limitations too. Customers can’t go through the drive-thru for the beloved sauce -- they have to dine in.
