Turns out the guys at the Golden Arches are seriously schwifty…and big fans of Szechuan ‘Mulan’ McNugget Sauce.
The search is over – Rick has finally got his Mulan McNugget sauce.
Back in 1998, McDonald’s released a limited edition Szechuan dipping sauce to promote the Disney movie Mulan. It was, apparently, very tasty but was understandably left to the confines of history as another long-forgotten promotional item at the golden arches.
But, after the sauce got name dropped several times in the first episode of season 3 of Rick & Morty back in April, an online campaign began to bring back Szechuan to McDs.
And now, as the rest of season 3 kicks off on adult:swim, series creator Justin Roiland has received a very exciting package in the mail:
McDonalds literally sent us a bottle of the Mulan sauce with a Rick & Morty label. This is insane. https://t.co/7kee9VJ5ux

Don’t use it all at once dude!
But, most excitingly of all, McDonald’s have also implied that “a few lucky fans” will be able to grab their own taste of the sauce very soon:
Could a full scale comeback be on the way? Disney is working on a live action Mulan after all…
