You Asked, McDonald's Answered: Szechuan Sauce Is Coming Back for a Limited Time


This is not a drill!

When we say limited time, we mean it. McDonald's is giving all Rick and Morty fans what they asked for, and will have its Szechuan sauce in stock... but only for one day.

On Saturday, October 7, participating McDonald's locations will be giving out Szechuan sauce in collaboration with the launch of its buttermilk crispy tenders. While you can find a McDonald's in every neighborhood, only two San Antonio locations will hand out the sauce (with Rick and Morty-inspired artwork on the peelable cover) and posters with saucy artwork (like Szeuchuan sauce, that is).

The obsession with Szechuan sauce comes after Rick, everyone's favorite grandpa on television, says that his motivation in life is "finding that McNugget sauce."


But here's the catch: you have to purchase an order of the buttermilk crispy tenders, and you'll only be able to get a single packet of Szechuan sauce, because McDonald's is notorious for being stingy with sauce.

Participating locations, 4331 Vance Jackson / 10950 Hwy 151, 2 p.m.,
