McDonald's bringing back wildly popular Szechuan dipping sauce

The whole thing was a fiasco, and fans took to Twitter (and other social media platforms) to express their displeasure in posts that didn't need any more fire from the McDonald's Szechuan sauce.

The fast-food giant has also released a podcast series called "The Sauce", which looks at the Szechuan Sauce phenomenon as well as the events of October 7 when a botched giveaway turned eager fans into angry mobs when McDonald's ran out of the Teriyaki-ketchup mashup.

At lunchtime on Monday, Feb. 26, they will start releasing the crazy-popular Szechuan Sauce on a nationwide basis instead of just a handful of restaurants in every market.

Didn't have your chance to get your hands on McDonald's Szechuan sauce in October? Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland brought the little-known concoction back into the public eye in the first episode of Rick and Morty's third season, "The Richshank Redemption".

Fans had demanded McDonald's bring back the limited-edition sauce after it appeared on an episode of "Rick and Morty" past year. McDonald's Chef Mike Haracz couldn't have imagined that his innocent reply to a fan sparked headlines that McDonald's was going to bring the sauce back.

The dramatic narrative opens, "You're listening to the Sauce, an investigative podcast by McDonald's, Gizmodo and Onion Labs". The sauce saga only got more ridiculous in August when DJ Deadmau5 purchased a half-gallon jug of it for $15,000. The fast-food has even created a marketing campaign and a site called We Want The Sauce. The condiment with a cult-like following will be available at all McDonald's locations in the USA while supplies last. To obtain it, a customer must buy an item on the menu.

What do you guys think?

"FYI: We had nothing to do with this McDonald's stuff".
