'Rick & Morty' Fans Wreaked Havoc on McDonald's All Weekend

When McDonald's faced a shortage in 2011, fans of the McNuggets dip went into a frenzy, with some calling for a boycott of the fast food chain.

Szechuan sauce obtained from the one-day promotion has already popped up for sale on Ebay, with new and sealed packets selling for thousands of dollars.

Holding a single 1-ounce portion of the sauce in his hand, the enterprising young man handed out pre-dipped nuggets amid a mob of onlookers, some of whom can be heard confirming the price with the seller.

In April, Adult Swim's hit anime series Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland has expressed his love for McDonald's "the year's most talked-about dipping sauce" - Szechuan sauce - by incorporating it into a Rick and Morty's plotline. The premiere revealed that Rick, the show's alcoholic supergenius inventor, is motivated not by the promise of world domination or scientific inquiry or getting laid and/or drunk and/or revenge or any of the other goals that usually motivate supergeniuses.

Customers got their first taste of the condiment in 1998 when it was given as a limited-time release for the promotion of Disney's Mulan.

Fans of "Rick and Morty" can celebrate after McDonald's announced it will bring back its special Szechuan sauce this winter.

As claimed by several reports, the quantity of the sauce was insanely limited which resulted in stores running out of stock in a minute.

It was reported this week that some customers in the United States staged a protest after McDonald's outlets ran out of the popular Szechuan sauce.
