McDonald’s Chef Says He’s Considering Bringing Back Szechuan McNugget Sauce Following ‘Rick And Morty’

by 2 years ago

Nothing in pop culture won April Fools Day like Rick and Morty. The season three premiere of the Adult Swim cartoon threw the world into a tailspin, mostly because of Rick pleading with McDonald’s to bring back the limited edition, promotional “Szechuan McNugget” that the Golden Arches debuted with Disney in 1998. U

s ’90s kids remember that the fast food item existed for a hot second to promote the movie Mulan almost 20 years ago. In the wise words of Rick:

 “I’m not driven by avenging my dead family…. I’m driven by finding that McNugget sauce. I want that Mulan McNugget Sauce … That’s my series arc, Morty. If it takes nine season, I want that McNugget Szechuan sauce.”

On Twitter, the show asked McDonalds for the sauce to make a comeback. The result was promising:

Meanwhile, a petition has over 22,000 signatures. And this is even more promising… A corporate chef at McDonald’s tweeted that he’ll “see what he can do” to bring it. So the wheels are in motion, people.

What a wonderful time to be alive.
