February 22 Podcast to Reveal Condiment's Return

Fans had demanded McDonald's bring back the limited-edition sauce after it appeared on an episode of "Rick and Morty" a year ago.

The fast food chain has announced that the sauce will be available at all southeast MI locations starting at lunchtime Monday, February 26.

"McDonald's is making it right and fans will be able to get the sauce with qualifying purchase distributed across every restaurant in the USA, while supplies last", wrote the company in an official release.

After last fall's Szechuan sauce debacle, McDonald's promised to bring back the condiment on a much larger scale.

Many fans were left disappointed on October 7 after the long-awaited return of the savory sauce was so restricted that there simply wasn't enough to go around. Then, around April 2017, interest in the sauce piqued after a character on Cartoon Network's "Rick and Morty" cartoon series professed his love for the discontinued sauce, and cited it as the impetus for all his time-traveling actions. Hear @deadmau5's story, our mistakes and more in our new podcast series w/ @StudioAtGizmodo/@OnionLabs: The Sauce. McDonald's is trying again with more szechuan sauce on February 26.

A press release from McDonald's addressed the pandemonium that broke out in October, saying the company had the best intentions but admitting it went very wrong. The next day, McDonald's had to offer fans an apology online.

After the Szechuan wars resulted in plenty of complaints being thrown at McDonald's, the fast food chain vowed to make it right by making infinitely more Szechuan sauce available so that everyone could get their hands on it. Even the police were called in some situations to keep disgruntled fans at bay.

The sauce will be available starting at lunchtime on Monday. We all have our Szechuan sauce-for some, it's a comic; for others it's a Comic-Con Funko Pop.
