Rick and Morty: McDonald's Szechuan sauce sells for almost $15,000 following first episode of season 3

The Szechuan sauce also came with Wasabi

For non-Rick and Morty addicts, the last few weeks surfing certain Internet forums has likely been somewhat confusing.

Ever since the first episode of season three premiered, fans have been making various references to McDonald’s limited edition Szechuan sauce that was only available in 1998 as part of a tie-in with Disney’s Mulan.

Why? Because Rick reveals during 'The Rickshank Redemption' that his one mission over the next nine seasons is to bring back McDonald’s limited edition Mulan-themed Szechuan sauce.

Petitions have been signed and McDonald’s has responded, but no official Szechuan sauce has been released by the fast-food chain.

Some fans have gotten desperate. As reported by Time, one has gone to incredible measures and paid $14,700 (£11,486) for a single pot of Szechuan sauce, alongside some Wasabi sauce.

"I just bought a really old car, while cleaning it I found a packet of this sauce.," the eBay listing reads. "After watching the recent episode of Rick and Morty I went online to see if it was worth anything. Turns out it was. Also, this comes with a packet of wasabi as well.”

Meanwhile, you can check out our review of the season three premiere here. For those looking for their next Rick and Morty fix, the second episode is expected to air this summer.
