20 MILLION PACKETS. They will be available all across the USA with a qualifying purchase. The company severely underestimated the demand for the sauce, resulting in those McDonald's restaurants that received supply running out in an incredibly short amount of time, and this in turn led to a huge backlash from Rick & Morty fans.

"We did not anticipate the overnight crowds, the cross-state travel and the unbelievable curiosity, passion and energy fans showed", McDonald's said.

McDonald's knows how dark things can get when locations don't have enough sauce to meet customers' demand - specifically, the demands of "Rick and Morty" fans.

After last fall's Szechuan sauce debacle, McDonald's promised to bring back the condiment on a much larger scale.

In the show, time-traveling scientist Rick Sanchez admitted that his sole motivation in life is "finding that McNugget sauce" - and that the cult show would continue as long as it takes until he finds the sauce. Additionally, McDonald's has partnered with Gizmodo and The Onion to produce a series of podcasts documenting what happened with the first attempt to bring the sauce to the people. The diehard fans, some of whom had shown up at the locations as early as 4 a.m., were furious at McDonald's. The fast food chain released limited quantities of their beloved and desired Szechuan dipping sauce that debuted as part of a cross-promotion with Mulan in 1998 after the third season of Rick and Morty made such a big deal out of it.

When the day came, however, fans were left rejected. McDonald's is announcing the sauce's return today, February 22.

"The folks in the Bay Area will definitely be able to get their hands on it", a McDonald's brand reputation manager said. And perhaps more importantly: they will reveal how to get more sauce. And how will the sauce be made available again?
