McDonald's Rick & Morty Szechuan Sauce Stunt Backfires

Police had to restore order at some McDonald’s branches over a sauce fiasco. The limited-edition Szechuan sauce, which was only made in 1998 to promote the film Mulan, has become well known after featuring in the popular cartoon Rick and Morty.

The chain announced it would come back for one day on October 7th, but fans were left disappointed after stores ran out. In one video, police can be seen holding back people chanting "we want sauce". Officers also attended other stores because hundreds of people turned up.

McDonald's announced the Szechuan's return as a "really, really limited release" to special locations in the US. But fans online said some restaurants claimed they were only given 20 pots of the sauce per venue, while others received none.

Fans took to social media to vent their frustrations after being unable to get their hands on the out-of-production dip. One couple posted that they had driven for four hours to a restaurant stocking the sauce, but were left disappointed.

The global fast food chain apologized to fans on social media, but repeated their warning that the release was going to be "super limited".

Pots of the sauce are now listed for sale on online auction websites for hundreds of dollars. FULL STORY
