Rick and Morty fans rejoice, with new release of Szechuan sauce

Szechuan-Sauce-2-Title

So it turns out that the long-heralded McDonalds Szechuan sauce, the sauce which caused a million Rick and Morty fans to go into Meltdown is finally re-released. The sauce craze got saw  bidding wars, riots, and petitions to help bring back the sauce.

On Monday, McDonald locations across the USA began serving them again, however this time the fast-food chain didn’t take any risks, distributing 20 million sauce packs across the USA in order to make sure there wouldn’t be the scenes of riots with Rick and Morty fans fighting each other to get their hands on it.

It’s fair to say that the hype surrounding the sauce was astronomical and to live up to it would be tough, especially considering police had been called previously to stop the fighting along with ludicrously high prices paid at auctions for the sauce- it was reported that the DJ, deadmau5 spent around $15,000 on a jug of Szechuan sauce.  

Along came Mondays launch date and finally the verdict on the taste test was out: It’s good, but not great- think a classic Chinese restaurant-style sweet and sour sauce with some soy and sesame and you get the idea.

So, sadly for the Rick and Morty fans who spent time going crazy over the sauce, it turns out that hyped up sauce is really, “meh”.
