Although it's been years since the condiment has been offered at the fast food chain, the limited edition sauce will finally make its return for one day only this weekend. It will only be available on Saturday, Oct. 7 at select restaurants nationwide on a first-come, first-served basis.
Szechuan sauce was originally sold as a limited-time promotion for Disney's "Mulan" in 1998. (Which, to their credit, they later auctioned off to benefit victims of Hurricane Harvey.) Eventually a whopping 44,000 people signed a change.org petition asking McDonald's to bring the Mulan-themed dip back. The episode opens up with the main protagonist, Rick, in a dream sequence in which he goes to a McDonald's within his memory to experience the taste of the Szechuan Sauce for one last time.
"Guys, we did it".
McDonald's didn't stop there: To promote its new buttermilk chicken tenders, the restaurant is offering a new version of Szechuan sauce at locations across the country, including four in Chicago. After returning with the Szechuan Sauce from the always-1998 dimension, C-1998M, we did some science and now we have a bit more sauce!

"#Rick and Morty" is one of the most famous animated TV series in the US.The show also has a huge fan following across the world.
On October 7, McDonald's restaurants across the United States will have Szechuan sauce in "limited quantities" before the sauce presumably disappears again. The posters, free with a purchase, can also be found locally at McDonald's in University Heights, Berea, Lakewood and Cleveland (Carnegie Ave. and E. 55th locations).
As it turns out, McDonald's listens to its customers.
According to a report by The Independent, Adult Swim took to Twitter on Monday, 2nd October to officially announce "Rick and Morty" season 4.
