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.

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.
