You Can Now Make The Szechuan Sauce From 'Rick And Morty' At Home

You can't go on any social media or any part of the Internet at the moment without seeing a reference to Rick and Morty. Even if you don't watch it, surely you've been intrigued by the sheer amount of fans who've come out of the woodwork since the surprise airing of the first episode of the highly-anticipated third season.

In case you haven't watched it yet, it basically follows the story of the most intelligent man in the universe - Rick Sanchez. He's an alcoholic and extremely eccentric. He's come back to live with his family after abandoning his daughter and strikes up a strong relationship with his grandson, Morty. Morty is pretty much the opposite of Rick. He's a little dumb, very nervous and generally a bit of a dweeb.

Rick has a portal gun which enables the pair to travel to different dimensions and universes.

Honestly, it's brilliant. You need to check it out. However, it may be a cartoon but it's by no means something that you should watch with your young family members. Stick to Paw Patrol or something.

Anyway in the latest episode, Rick is in intergalactic prison for, well, everything. At one point, an agent is inside his memories with him in an attempt to find out how to make a portal gun.

Rick takes him to McDonald's and references Szechuan sauce, a dipping sauce the fast food giant brought out to celebrate the release of Disney film, Mulan.

Since this reference, the Internet has exploded. Everyone wants Maccies to bring back the sauce.

Well, hold onto your butts because Andrew Rea has put together a how-to guide of how to make the sauce. He wrote: "I was 9 when Szechuan sauce graced sauce pumps across the nation, so naturally, I can't remember at all what it tastes like.

"But with the help of some actual Szechuan sauce (like, the stuff from Sichuan), a redditor's diligent recreation, a fast-food-secret: mixing things together in different ways and repackaging it, we might just come close!"

The thing is, we may not need to sweat over a hot cooker in order to make the sauce ourselves. As a result of the massive reaction online, Maccies seems to be coming around to the idea of bringing the sauce back.

They told USA Today: "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 9 seasons or 97 years for."

McDonald's chef, Mike Haracz also replied to a fan on Twitter...

Also, the official McDonald's Twitter replied to the Rick and Morty Twitter account quite favourably...

With a live-action remake of Mulan due to hit our screens in 2018, surely that would be the perfect time to do it?

Who knows. All I know is that we're excited.
