Don't worry 'Rick & Morty' fans, McDonald's Szechuan sauce will return

According to the Washington Post, McDonald's may have used the Szechaun Sauce stunt to help promote its new chicken fingers, dubbed Buttermilk Crispy Tenders. And the backlash on social media was swift, with hashtags like #SzechuanGate and #McFail going viral.

So, in efforts to make good on their sauce promise, McDonald's said it will release the Szechuan sauce again in the Winter.

Bowing to public pressure MacDonald's issued a public apology to fans of the sauce and stated it would bring the sauce back in winter.

In a direct reference to a similar, fourth wall-breaking rant that Rick delivered to Morty in the first episode, Rick reveals that he'll do anything - from causing the chaotic, violent collapse of an intergalactic government to killing an army of alternate-reality versions of himself who have conspired against him - exclusively to get more of that sauce, which now only exists in his own memory.

McDonald's resurrected a limited-run promotional item, Szechuan dipping sauce, over the weekend to play off the condiment's popularity on the animated comedy series "Rick and Morty", where the titular mad scientist Rick Sanchez is obsessed with it. One restaurant tried to pawn off Sriracha sauce. We don't have a confirmation for when we'll get season four, but we do know that it will be in "a really long time".

On Saturday afternoon, McDonald's apologized for the problem.

It was not necessary any more to that Mcdonald's is riding the wave and taking advantage of this advertising welcome.

In a 5 October 2017 press release McDonald's announced that the extremely-limited Szechuan Sauce release would occur on 7 October 2017: "Guys, we did it".

You spoke. We've listened.

"Our super-limited batch, though well intentioned, clearly wasn't enough to meet that demand", the company tweeted, in a major understatement of events. In the video below, a crowd chanted "We want sauce". "'Not cool.'. We want to make this right".

On Twitter, McDonald's head chef, Mike Haracz, promised Rick and Morty fans that the restaurant chain was deeply apologetic and would do better.
