The chain will also give away 1,000 screen-printed posters showing its full dipping sauce lineup.
'Szechuan Sauce fans are typically incredibly motivated, born winners that combine a sweet disposition with a slow burning heat. In the company's words, the roll-out is "really, really limited". Looks like it has finally worked, as the fast food chain announced that the sauce will be back for one day only. According to the SF Gate, it's also very likely that the chain is bringing back the item in response to a Change.org petition organized by fans of the Cartoon Network series "Rick and Morty" earlier this year. Chef Mike Haracz, who is listed as the "manager of culinary innovation" at McDonald's, tweeted at Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland on Sunday that their prayers had been answered. "They truly put the "I WANT THAT SZECHUAN SAUCE" in "Buttermilk Crispy Tenders".More news: Giants end sour season with a win, lose first pick

To recap, in the premiere of the now-complete third season of Rick and Morty, protagonist Rick went on a rant about how his goal in life is to once again taste the limited-time McDonald's Szechuan McNugget dipping sauce that was released in 1998 as a promotional tie-in for Disney's Mulan.
"Customers will have the chance to receive their favorite limited-edition sauce poster at participating McDonald's restaurants on Saturday, October 7, beginning at 2 p.m. local time in select restaurants while supplies last, with the purchase of Buttermilk Crispy Tenders".
In August, one of the lucky recipients of the jug of Szechuan sauce sold the package on eBay for $15,350. The call to bring back the long-discontinued sauce began when TV show "Rick and Morty" called out the sauce in its season premiere.
