Thanks for the sauce, McDonald's - even if it's a few months late

Thanks for the sauce, McDonald's - even if it's a few months late”

"20 MILLION CUPS spread across all US McD's", McDonald's announced in a tweet.

McDonald's is bringing back Szechuan sauce (again) and this time, the company appears to have learned from last year's ugly sauce debacle.

Starting Monday, Rick and Morty fans may finally be satisfied. "Between the costumes, the memes and the cross-state travel, you, the fans, showed us what you got", the statement read.

In or around October 2013 to October 2017 Sanchez stole and used the identifies of seven immigrants for his own financial benefit. Sanchez is charged with one count of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft, both are felonies.

McDonald's apologised for the botched promotion and confirmed that Szechuan Sauce would return, and now it's announced that it'll be next week on 26th February. Fans were disappointed. People wept. In October, McDonald's released the sauce for one day, prompting lines. As you might recall, the sweet and sour condiment caused a stroke of trouble across the country back in October when locations didn't have enough supply to meet the demand. "To fully make amends, we felt it was important to not only bring back much more sauce this time, but to also admit our mistakes, answer questions and give fans access to the story behind the story". The company noted it would only be "while supplies last (which this time around, we hope is a while)". Twenty years later, the sauce has a fan following, which was referenced in an episode of "Rick and Morty". Even the police were called in some situations to keep disgruntled fans at bay.

To commemorate this announcement, McDonald's has launched a new website called We Want the Sauce detailing the announcement, along with a podcast that looks into the odd way a sauce released almost 20 years ago has had such a big impact. The fast food chain released limited quantities of their beloved and desired Szechuan dipping sauce that debuted as part of a cross-promotion with Mulan in 1998 after the third season of Rick and Morty made such a big deal out of it.
