Rick and Morty Season 3 Premiere

The third season premiere of Rick and Morty got everyone talking about the Mulan Szechuan sauce that McDonald’s once had during a 1998 cross-promotion with the Disney animated movie. McDonald’s had to deal with a petition signed by thousands asking them to bring it back after Rick revealed his life’s goal was to get the sauce back, no matter how many seasons it took him. But rather than satisfying everybody by reviving the sauce at their restaurants, the fast food chain decided to keep things a bit lower key by sending a big bottle to series co-creator Justin Roiland.

As the letter that accompanied the mythical sauce indicated, it was just the first bottle they were sending out, and a few other fans would have to chance to dip chicken nuggets in this precious condiment soon enough. It turns out McDonald’s gave away three more bottles of the sauce to fans who retweeted them during the return of the third season a couple weeks ago. One of the recipients decided that selling the elixir was better than dipping some Chicken McNuggets in it. So how much did the Mulan Szechuan sauce sell for? Find out below. Read More »

Mulan Szechuan Sauce

Tonight brings the highly anticipated continuance of the third season of Rick and Morty after the season premiere caught everyone off guard on April Fools’ Day earlier this year. And just in time for the return of the Adult Swim animated series, co-creator Justin Roiland, who also voices both of the title characters, got a special package from McDonald’s.

If you watched the first episode of the third season, then you know that Rick revealed to Morty that his life’s goal is to get back the limited edition Szechuan sauce that McDonald’s released as a cross-promotion for the release of Disney’s animated movie Mulan. Since then, there have been rumblings that McDonald’s might actually bring it back, and Roiland himself said the fast food chain promised to send him a batch of it in the near future, after he himself made some desperate attempts to track it down himself. Well, the future is now. Justin Roiland has received McDonald’s Szechuan sauce. See it in all its glory below. Read More »

Rick and Morty Season 3 Premiere

This past weekend, Adult Swim surprised everyone on April Fools’ Day by debuting the long-awaited third season premiere to Rick and Morty, both online and on Cartoon Network. It was a welcome return for the brilliant animated comedy series, though it has caused some debate among fans as to whether what is actually going on in the episode (you can find out more about that here). But beyond having fans coming up with theories about the direction of the show, there was one other way Rick and Morty worked fans into a frenzy.

In the episode, we learn that Rick has a potentially unhealthy affinity for a special Szechuan sauce that was given out with McDonald’s chicken nuggets for a limited time as part of a cross-promotion with the release of Mulan back in 1998. Despite demands by fans in various petitions online over the years, the sauce has remained hidden away. However, it sounds like there’s a chance its appearance in Rick and Morty may have convinced the fast food chain to bring it back. Read More »
