McDonald's is releasing Szechuan sauce-for real

It's been nearly 20 years since the sauce saw the light of day.

The Szechuan sauce is being released with its Buttermilk Crispy Tenders and they're also giving away 1,000 limited-edition screen-printed posters for the sauces to mark the occasion.

Adult Swim's Rick and Morty has created a buzz unlike any other animated show in recent years, and perhaps its buzziest moment ever was Rick's heartfelt rant about his love of McDonald's Mulan promotional Szechuan sauce from the 1990s.

McDonald's didn't mention Rick and Morty in their announcement, but we think Justin Roiland and Dan Harmom had something to do with making this dream a reality.

The striker worked tirelessly, pressuring the opposition defence and was as selfless as ever on the ball. ROMELU LUKAKU is a doubt for Manchester United's clash with Crystal Palace.

At the time, Roiland shared a photo of the half-gallon, enthusiastically announcing to his followers that "we f--ing did it" in his caption.

In addition to the Szechuan Sauce, fans can also get a limited-edition, hand-made poster commemorating this special occasion. The Szechuan Sauce is only available on a "first come, first served basis" when you buy a four-, six-, or 10-piece Buttermilk Crispy Tenders "starting at 2:00pm local time on October 7, 2017". Well he doesn't have to go very far, bcause McDonalds is bringing the sauce back.

A petition to bring the sauce back has almost 50,000 signatures.

This Saturday, fans will get their own taste.

The Dolphins , meanwhile, did not take an offensive snap beyond their 40-yard line the second half until the final minutes. Less than four months later, the Saints returned to the same stadium and defeated Indianapolis 31-17 in Super Bowl XLIV.

McDonald's first issued Szechuan sauce as part of a marketing campaign with Disney's 1998 movie, Mulan. "If it takes nine seasons, I want that McNugget Szechuan sauce".

The sauce itself doesn't appear to have particularly szechuan roots-it's more of a plum sauce that's somewhere between sweet and sour and barbecue sauce, according to people who remember trying it in the '90s.

There have been petitions to bring it back, including in the third series of adult sci-fi cartoon Rick and Morty earlier this year.
