Can you simultaneously be happy and sad at the same time? Because I think that's what I'm feeling right now.

Because the season 3 premiere of Rick and Morty brought McDonald's 1998 Mulan Szechwan sauce back into the forefront of our minds, ("Oh yeah, that was a thing...") everyone has been trying to get their hands on some. Even though the only szechwan sauce you potentially could get your hands on would be over 20 years old and waaaaay beyond consumable. Ew. It became a glorified 21st century "Golden Ticket". If you had some, you were special.

 

 

But since it's increase in popularity these past few months, McDonald's has been working to get the sauce back on the market, and fans have been anxiously awaiting any news on when their sweet, sweet nug sauce would maybe come back.

Well, wait no longer! McDonald's has announced that Szechwan sauce is BACK for ONE DAY ONLY. And there are going to be limited edition collectible szechwan sauce themed posters while supplies last.

Now, don't just think you can go and hoard all the Szechwan sauce and then sell it back on eBay later for a ridiculous price. McDonald's has some rules and regulations attached to this 'one day only sauce':

-The sauce will only be available on Saturday, October 7th, starting at 2p (in whatever time zone you are in)

-The sauce is available for DINE IN ONLY. NO drive-thru orders. NO McDelivery or Mobile Order Pay, and NO getting your Uber driver to pick it up for you.

-The sauce is only available with the purchase of a 4, 6, or 10 piece Buttermilk Crispy Tenders meal.

-One collectible per customer. (I'm not sure if this means one sauce packet per customer, or one poster and one sauce packet per customer or not. Ask for two sauce packets and find out...)

-Quantities are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis.

-NOT ALL McDONALD'S WILL HAVE THE SZECHWAN SAUCE AND COLLECTIBLE POSTERS. You can go to ButtermilkCrispyTenders.com to check and see where the nearest McDonald's near you will be selling Szechwan sauce. But to save you some time, I checked and...

SZECHWAN SAUCE WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT EVANSVILLE McDONALD'S.

IT WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE IN HENDERSON EITHER.
