The official website of the sauce lists the McDonald's at 804 S Riverside Dr as the only Iowa franchise where fans will be able to get it.

McDonald's will also be giving away limited-edition posters celebrating all ten of their dipping sauces. "The [version of Mr.] Poopybutthole with the slightly shorter hat and McDonald's vague allusions to 'Hey, you seem like someone who likes traveling the galaxy kind of through a portal sort of thing, maybe you should have some Szechuan sauce'".

Rick and Morty reminded viewers of the sauce in a the season 3 opening episode. McDonald's announced that on October 7, 2017, the Szechuan sauce will be reintroduced to select restaurants for that day only (

Customers will be informed once the number of tickets for the sauce run out, she said, and extra staff will be on hand. Haracz tweeted, including a low-key reference to another Rick and Morty episode in which a giant floating alien head demands Earth's inhabitants "show me what you got" in the form of a musical competition.

While there, fans can also pick up one of 10 limited-edition, custom screen-printed gig-style posters, each inspired by one of McDonald's dipping sauces.

"That's right, collectible art, worthy of the pop-culture status fans have given their favorite sauces", McDonald's says. "After returning with the Szechuan Sauce from the always-1998 dimension, C-1998M, we did some science and now we have a bit more sauce!" The sauce will be available dine-in only, on a first-come, first-serve basis with the purchase of McDonald's Buttermilk Crispy Tenders beginning at 2 p.m., while supplies last.

Naturally, the joke became a meme, and Mickey D's responded by literally sending the show's creators a bottle of Mulan sauce. "If anyone from McDonald's is reading this, I don't see anything wrong with what they're doing and clearly neither does their legal department".
