On Saturday, October 7, Rick and Morty fans lined up outside their local McDonald’s in hopes of getting some of that delicious, extremely limited-edition, Szechuan sauce. The announcement for the sauce was released shortly after a joke in the Rick and Morty season 3 premiere.
Apparently, McDonald’s announced that they would be selling Szechuan sauce, in addition to their other dipping sauces, for one day only. Eager Rick and Morty fans began lining up before McDonald’s was even selling it.

There’s already a line at University/McClintock McDonalds for the Szechuan sauce and they won’t give out the sauce until 2 p.m. pic.twitter.com/F7eB5ZyjGy

However, fans were disappointed to find that the sauce was sold out almost immediately.
Not very happy with @McDonalds right now… they weren't even supposed to give out the Szechuan sauce yet and they're already out…

It might be in Mickey D’s best interest to keep making Szechuan sauce as a dipping sauce option.
