Following the surprise release of Rick and Morty’s season three premiere, McDonald’s were flooded with demands for a limited edition Szechuan sauce that was only available in 1998 as part of a tie-in with Disney’s Mulan.

Why? Because throughout the episode, Rick reveals that his upcoming nine season arch is to finally bring back the amazing sauce once again.

“Nine more seasons until I get that Szechuan dipping sauce, Morty,” concludes Rick at the episode’s end, during a speech reminiscent of that seen during the very first episode. “For 97 more years, Morty. I want that McNugget dipping sauce!”

One petition set up by fans, written about by The Independent yesterday, has reached over 20,000 signatures, while McDonald’s has teased fans with a Tweet reading “McNugga Lubba Dub Dub,” a reference to Rick’s famous phrase “Wubalubadubdub”.

Now a corporate chef at McDonald’s has said “I'll see what I can do” with regards bringing back the sauce. Hopefully, by the time Disney release their 2018 live-action Mulan adaptation, we’ll be seeing that tasty McNugget dipping sauce back in restaurants.
