Thanks in part to the Adult Swim show's popularity and its lead character's never-ending quest for that elusive Szechaun Sauce - he calls it his "one-armed man" and his "series arc even if it takes 9 seasons" - the fast food chain is bringing it back for one day only. The episode opens up with the main protagonist, Rick, in a dream sequence in which he goes to a McDonald's within his memory to experience the taste of the Szechuan Sauce for one last time.
It was exactly the kind of off-the-wall, out-of-left-field gag the show does best... meaning, naturally, that fans have been frothing at the mouth for the sugary sauce nearly as much as their animated hero ever since. This is, therefore, assumed to be a direct collaboration with the Rick (and Morty) show. The sauce is expected to be available for tasting, starting 7th October.
McDonald's is using the tie-in to help publicize its new Buttermilk Crispy Tenders.
About McDonald's USA McDonald's USA, LLC, serves a variety of menu options made with quality ingredients to more than 25 million customers every day. Orlando isn't the only place getting Szechuan'd; a few other Central Florida locations will also have it.
Participating McDonald's locations are also giving away collectible sauce-themed posters highlighting all ten of the restaurant's sauces, including the limited-edition Szechuan.

NBC News reported that Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines last week, but NPR has not independently verified that report. Lombardo later said the 62-year-old woman was located and not believed to be involved in the shooting.
McDonald's is preparing for the launch of its "Buttermilk Crispy Tenders".
The only Triad McDonald's location offering the limited-run Szechuan Sauce on Saturday is at 2241 Martin Luther King Jr.
Fans even started a Change.org petition for McDonald's to re-release the sauce, originally meant for McNuggets, since the "Rick and Morty" Season 3 debut in April.
So, if you're on a quest to get the sauce, good luck!
