'Rick And Morty' Creator To Get A Jug Of Szechuan Sauce From McDonald's

'Rick And Morty' Creator To Get A Jug Of Szechuan Sauce From McDonald's

20 years in the waiting.

Even if you don't watch Rick and Morty you'll know there is a running theme within the show: Rick's love for McDonald's Szechuan sauce.

Ever since the third series of Rick and Morty premiered back in April there has been one hot topic of conversation: is it possible to convince McDonald's to re-release their Szechuan-style sauce?

The sauce was initially released alongside the debut of the Disney film, Mulan, back in 1998.

Ever since then, we've been left in the wilderness without it.

The fans have had a go. There was a petition, constant social media cravings, and even the big boss at Maccies to respond to a tweet.

But now, it looks like it's returning, but for one man (maybe two men) only.

Justin Roiland, the man who created Rick and Morty, says he's going to be able to sample the McDonald's special sauce after they've promised to deliver a jug of the goodness to him.

At a Comic-Con panel on Friday, he confirmed the fast food giant will bring him Szechuan-sumptuousness next week.

He told reporters that he plans to film himself, and co-creator Dan Harman, sampling the taste and will include any disappointing reactions.

(There better not be any disappointment - we've waited 20 long years for this.)

Season three of the show opened with Rick, imprisoned by aliens, declare to grandson Monty that he was going to do everything he could to get his hands on the discontinued sauce.

The full set of series will begin airing on July 30, but Roiland, apart from episode one, hasn't told us how much the sauce will feature in future episodes.

He may have kept that quiet, but he didn't hold back when telling the audience of his love for Szechuan.

"I heard they had a limited batch at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Canada," Roiland said. "I called every McDonald's in L.A. and went online.

"I even might have tried to connect with people in Canada to see if they could mail it to me - and that failed."

In April, a McDonald's spokesperson echoed the lines of their boss, and told the Huffington Post: "We never say never, because when our customers speak, we listen.

"And to paraphrase some of our most enthusiastic fans, our sauce is so good that it would be worth waiting nine seasons or 97 years for."
