McDonald's Szechuan Sauce returns for one day

And now the fast food giant is releasing the dipping sauce today for one day only on a first-come, first-serve basis, and only at participating locations.

McDonald's will gift fans with 1,000 limited-edition posters, each celebrating one of its 10 sauces, like Honey Mustard, Sweet & Sour, Creamy Ranch, and of course, Szechuan Sauce. Following the official start of Rick & Morty Season 3, McDonald's sent co-creator and Rick/Morty voice Justin Roiland a bottle of Szechuan Sauce in July. "If it takes nine seasons, I want my McNugget dipping sauce - Szechuan sauce", the show's lead character, Rick, said in the season premiere. Though, Szechuan Sauce (a Teriyaki sauce) was reportedly a real condiment available at McDonald's in the 1990s to help promote the release of Disney's animated movie, Mulan.

We have good news and bad news for local fans of "Rick and Morty". "The [version of Mr.] Poopybutthole with the slightly shorter hat and McDonald's vague allusions to 'Hey, you seem like someone who likes traveling the galaxy kind of through a portal sort of thing, maybe you should have some Szechuan sauce".

What's the big deal about this one-time-only, one-day only, limited-edition Szechuan sauce?

So the fast-food chain made a decision to play along.

McDonald's will start serving Szechuan Sauce starting at 2 p.m. on October 7, while supplies last, according to the release.

There's a full list of the almost 1,000 restaurants that will have sauce at

Six other Dayton-area McDonald's also will offer the free posters - but will NOT be offering the Szechuan sauce itself, which will be available only at the WSU location.

McDonald's is preparing for the launch of its "Buttermilk Crispy Tenders".
