McDonald's Szechuan Sauce

A MCDONALD'S PR stunt has backfired and sparked chaos at restaurants around the United States, after the fast food chain brought back a rare Szechuan sauce not seen in store since 1998.

McDonald's customers are fuming after an extremely limited re-release of its 1998 Szechuan sauce on Saturday left most fans empty-handed.

McDonald's restaurants across the country were inundated Saturday by fans of Adult Swim's "Rick and Morty" looking to complete to their own series arc by obtaining the long discontinued "Mulan McNugget sauce" during the one-day only giveaway.

'Return to your homes, they do not have the sauce, ' cops announced on a bullhorn to one crowd in Philadelphia, one witness said. Rick admits to have developed an obsession over it and vows that "in 9 seasons or 97 years I'll receive more Szechuan sauce." . By Sunday, a single packet of the sauce had apparently sold on eBay for $300.

" we had my step-dad go to Salt Lake to find the sauce, and right when he gets in line he's told that there is no sauce", she said, adding "I was very disappointed".

He explains to another character what the sauce is and his love for it being the reason the McDonalds is perpetually stuck in 1998.

The sauce was brought back to life thanks to a push from "Rick and Morty".

Tweet from McDonald's: The best fans in the multiverse showed us what they got today.

After months and months of asking McDonald's to bring back their Szechuan sauce, the fast food company gave into our demands, well, kind of.

The manager there informed visitors that they had only received 18 packs of the sauce, and that by 11 a.m., they already had a waiting list of more than 40 people.

But on Saturday, it appeared McDonald's had underestimated just how popular the dipping sauce had become.

You're getting more damn Szechuan sauce.

"Szechuan sauce is coming back once again this winter", a statement from the company reads.
