McDonald's cult Szechuan Sauce has been trending hard these last few days and never have we wanted to try a fast food dipping sauce so badly. The question is, how much would you pay to get your hands on some?
Over the weekend, Adult Swim quietly dropped the long-awaited premiere of Rick and Morty season 3 and it was glorious. We're about to get into some spoilers, so avid Rick and Morty fans who still haven't caught the episode may want to watch it on Adult Swim before reading any furthur.
In the episode, Rick makes it his life's goal to get his hands on some McDonald's Szechuan Sauce that was released during the promotion of Disney's Mulan back in '90s for a limited time.
It seems the sauce has garnered a massive following after the release of the episode, prompting folks who held on to the item for nearly two decades to capitalize on the momentum of the hype.
Quite a few packets of Szechuan sauce packets have found their way onto eBay, some are selling for nearly as high as $200. As reference, McDonald's used to charge about 15 cents for their sauces before just giving them away for free a few years ago.
A glimmer of light in this dim world, is that the proceeds from quite a few of these listings will go towards charity.
A completely different turn of events compared to the dude who sold that bottle of Big Mac Sauce and his mixtape for $10,000.
Man, if only we knew how to make this sauce at home.
