If you don’t remember McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce, don’t feel bad. It was released almost 20 years ago, so it’s been a while. But the cult-fave has been trending the last few days thanks to an episode of “Rick and Morty” on Adult Swim.
We don’t want to spoil the story for anyone, but in the show, Rick “makes it his life’s goal” to get some of this Mickey D’s sauce. Now the sought after limited edition sauce was only released in 1998, to go along with the Disney flick, “Mulan.” It was discontinued after that and hasn’t returned since.
But after this episode aired, some people who’ve actually held onto this coveted McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce for almost two decades are capitalizing on the hype. And as gross as 18-year-old condiments might sound, some people are willing to pay to get their hands on some. Some packets are on eBay are going for nearly as high as $200!
And who knows, with a live-action “Mulan” movie set to come out next year, maybe McDonald’s will bring back the beloved sauce? Fingers crossed, fans.
