Bring It Back: A ‘Rick And Morty’ Fan Paid $14K For McDonald’s Szechuan Dipping Sauce

Rick and Morty surprised fans on April Fool’s Day by releasing episodes into the wild unannounced. The move was met with rapturous applause and notable for resurrecting a cultural touchstone many perhaps had forgotten: McDonald’s Mulan Szechuan dipping sauce.

In the show, the time-traveling scientist Rick Sanchez reveals that his only motivation is to find that coveted McDonald’s dipping sauce. Until he finds that McNugget sauce, the show would continue indefinitely.

“Nine more seasons until I get that dipping Szechuan sauce, or 97 more years, Morty!” Sanchez screams, foam spilling out of his mouth.

Well it seems that Rick and Morty has some serious cultural influence after all. One superfan reportedly paid $14,700 in an eBay bidding war in a recently discovered packet of the sauce. Here’s how the it was discovered.

Via eBay:

I just bought a really old car, while cleaning it I found a packet of this sauce. After watching the recent episode of Rick and Morty I went online to see if it was worth anything. Turns out it was. Also this comes with a packet of wasabi as well.

The seller also adds, “I hope somebody who wants to eat some 20 year old gnarly sauce gets this.. I would prefer not to sell it to a collector.”

With that kind of price, it’s at least a sure bet the buyer really, really wants that sauce. What isn’t a sure bet, however, is if McDonald’s plans to bring back the Szechuan McNugget sauce to stores. The sauce was used in a promotional package for the release of Disney’s Mulan film. With a live-action remake set to come out in 2018, the time could be ripe to bring it all back.

We never say never because, when our customers speak, we listen,” McDonald’s spokeswoman Terri Hickey told the Chicago Sun-Times. She also added, quoting Rick and Morty, “And to paraphrase some of our most enthusiastic fans, our sauce is so good that it would be worth waiting nine seasons or 97 years for.”
