McDonald's Sauce Promotion Disappoints Fans of 'Rick and Morty'

12 October 2017

After months and months of asking McDonald's to bring back their Szechuan sauce, the fast food company gave into our demands, well, kind of. I suppose I can empathize with the frustration of someone cheating you out of something you waited 10 hours for, but I am having trouble wondering what would motivate someone to wait 10 hours for a packet of likely mediocre sauce. That's my series arc, Morty. It might be known to some of you that hardcore R and M fans think that they are of higher intellect and that you only "get" the show if you're "smart", when, in fact, this show doesn't require advanced intellect to enjoy. As a result, McDonald's is bringing back the sauce once again. We were about to leave the restaurant at about 1:40 p.m. for the 2 p.m. start time when I checked my Snapchat. Literal temper tantrums were thrown by superfans who referred to themselves as "Pickle Ricks" and berated McDonald's employees, employees who had no control over how much fucking sauce was available. "Szechuan sauce!" as employees tried to maintain order. At one of them, he spoke with people in line who told him they had been there since 8 a.m. This time the Szechuan sauce was not explicitly tied in with any project, but anyone who watches the show "Rick and Morty" knows why they did it. He remembered eating it at McDonald's with his family when it was first released. What I will never be able to comprehend, however, is the madness that took place in some other McDonald's across the country. Even so, he wasn't willing to wait hours in line.

Tasting the sauce again would have been "fulfilling a childhood dream", he said.

Rachel Marie, a 23-year-old graphic designer from MI, woke up at 9 a.m. and headed to McDonald's with a friend to stand ninth in line for the limited edition sauce. The company later apologized to their fans on Twitter, saying "The best fans in the multiverse showed us what they got today".

To maximize its popularity, the company announced they were bringing back the "super limited" Szechuan sauce in select stores on October 7. Some of the lucky fans who managed to acquire Szechuan packets even put them up for auction, where a single sauce packet was sold for $274.99. "When we say limited, we mean really, really limited!" the website said. "I'm not gonna try it", Bogal said, "I'm just gonna keep it forever if I get it". The point the writers are trying to make is that nothing matters, which is why Rick, an amoral sociopath, would literally cause all this destruction over a formula for secret sauce.
