McDonald’s Is Releasing A Podcast About The ‘Rick And Morty’ Sauce Riots

The company miscalculated demand for the sauce in October 2017, when it played into a popular Rick and Morty joke and reproduced a 20-year old sauce, causing havoc at McDonald's restaurants across the country.

The fast food chain has announced that the sauce will be available at all southeast MI locations starting at lunchtime Monday, February 26.

However, McDonald's quickly ran out of its extremely limited supply of packets of special Szechuan sauce, creating outrage from long-waited fans of the animated sci-fi comedy series "Rick and Morty".

Rick and Morty fans: settle down.

Thomas Calls Second Amendment High Court's 'Constitutional Orphan'
The Ninth Circuit, Thomas wrote, applied the wrong standard of review in weighing the constitutionality of the waiting period. The court's order comes at a sensitive time as the country is reeling from the latest school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

"We did not anticipate the overnight crowds, the cross-state travel and the unbelievable curiosity, passion and energy fans showed", McDonald's said. The three episodes of the podcast delve into the backlash on that fateful October day, featuring interviews with McDonald's corporate executives and Chef Mike, angered Sauce lovers and electronic DJ Deadmau5.

"We disappointed fans and we are sorry". And we're excited to announce that starting Monday, February 26, 20 million packets of Szechuan Sauce will be available across all US McDonald's restaurants with a qualifying purchase, while supplies last (which this time around, we hope is a while). We all have our Szechuan sauce-for some, it's a comic; for others it's a Comic-Con Funko Pop. By the end of the episode, he seems to go insane as he tells Morty that he will one day get more of the precious Szechuan sauce.

The "Szechuan Teriyaki Dipping Sauce" was first introduced as a limited edition Happy Meal item to support the release of Disney's Mulan in 1998. Even the police were called in some situations to keep disgruntled fans at bay. And how will the sauce be made available again?
