Rick and Morty Fans Furious Over Mickey D's Sauce Stunt

Rick and Morty Fans Furious Over Mickey D's Sauce Stunt

The discontinued Szechuan sauce became an internet sensation following the first episode of the third season, The Rickshank Rickdemption. Stores quickly ran out of their sauce supply - causing mini riots and an outpouring of complaints across social media. McDonald's said the Szechuan sauce will come back to its restaurants in winter and it will be more widely available than Saturday's promotion. In that episode, Rick (an older adult "genius") and Morty (his less-gifted grandson) seek McDonald's Szechuan dipping sauce in order to fulfill Rick's desire for it.

The sauce was a demand by fans of Cartoon Network's show "Rick and Morty".

Castellanos, Giroud & Masuluke Named as Final Three for 2017 FIFA Puskás Award
Giroud, meanwhile, makes the shortlist for his scorpion kick goal against Crystal Palace in the Premier League last season. MOUSSA DEMBLE is no longer in the running for the Puskas Goal of the Year award.


Holding a single one-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 he heard confirming the price with the seller. 1000+ people camped out to get #szechuansauce but McDonalds had 70 sauces... The winning bidder was, in fact, the DJ deadmau5 - who is apparently a huge "Rick and Morty" fan. McDonalds promises to bring it back to every location, nationwide, sometime this winter. After returning with the Szechuan Sauce from the always-1998 dimension, C-1998M, we did some science and now we have a bit more sauce! Haracz's apology led to Rick and Morty fans calling out McDonald's for the marketing stunt.

Customers at a Los Angeles McDonald's chanted "We want sauce!" after getting shortchanged during the Saturday promo, while fights reportedly broke out at numerous other locations as customers tussled over the few packets that were made available.

Facebook, Google now plans to help reconnect Puerto Rico
Nearly three weeks later, almost the entire island is still left without power, and the locals are left to fend for themselves. States, on average, typically have 57 percent of Medicaid costs covered by the federal government, according to the report.


So Rick and Morty fans who did not get their sauce probably should just wait a couple of months rather than spend $1,000 to get it now.

McDonald's responded and said their "super limited batch, though well-intended, clearly wasn't near enough to meet the demand".

Immigration demands linked to support for DACA
But the policies outlined by the White House on Sunday night are likely to push Democrats away from the negotiating table. This follows Trump's announcement last month the White House would begin "an orderly, lawful wind down" of DACA.


McDonald's eventually addressed the horde of irate customers on Twitter.
