McDonald's brings back limited supply of Szechuan sauce

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

McDonald's limited edition Szechuan sauce will be available beginning today, according to the fast food restaurant.

The savory and slightly sweet sauce with hints of soy, ginger, garlic, and slight vinegar notes became widely popularized through the cartoon show 'Rick and Morty.'

McDoanld’s had made the sauce available once before on Saturday, Oct. 7 at select restaurants, but some customers were angry they were unable to get any due to lack of supplies.

The company tweeted earlier last week that it has distributed 20 million packets of the sauce to select stores across the U.S.

The return of the sweet and savory sauce was due in part to a successful customer online petition.
