McDonald bows to demand and says it is going to make more of the cult Szechuan sauce available More

According to Cleveland.com, only two stores in northeast OH had Szechuan Sauce, but dozens still showed up at non-participating McDonald's. But per Fox News, fans who lined up for hours outside the golden arches in many states were calling for a boycott after learning the outlets had only a few packets to give away-and in some cases none at all. "We agree. So we're gonna make this right".

As of now, Rick and Morty 3 has just ended, and the show made another stellar run.

McDonald's finally responded Sunday night telling fans that they would get their sauce, and plenty of it, but not until winter.

Fellow co-creator Dan Harmon spoke to Polygon about McDonald's campaign while attending New York Comic Con and reiterated that neither he, Roland or Adult Swim had anything to do with it.

Other photos on social media show customers holding up signs asking for the sauce. The sauce was a demand by fans of Cartoon Network's show "Rick and Morty".

The chain announced it would be selling a limited run of a long out-of-production Szechuan dipping sauce - which is referenced in the third season of Rick and Morty - for fans on Saturday (7 October). This time, it won't be limited to one day or select restaurants.

Eventually people started dragging Rick and Morty fans for being so rude to service workers who had no say over how many packets of sauce they received.

Fast-food fans are apparently going to great lengths to get their hands on a rare McDonald's dipping sauce - even if it means paying a huge mark-up.

In several locations, police were called in to disperse crowds. We will update the post when more information becomes available. "Rick and Morty" now dominates the attentions of the key 18 to 34 demo, according to Ad Age. (Some may come to regret paying top-dollar on eBay). The flavour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of sauce physics most of the flavour will go over a typical eater's head.
