Recently, McDonald's announced that their Szechuan sauce, which was an exclusive item for a short time in 1998 to promote the film Mulan, would be making a return. After cartoon show Rick and Morty campaigned for its return, McDonald's promised it would return for a single day on October 7.
That day has now passed, but it will be remembered forever as an utter disaster. Stores were reportedly under stocked on the sauce, and the promotional posters that came with them. At popular stores, cops had to be called to keep the peace.
The same thing happened across the country.
One McDonald's employee claimed that stores had only gotten 20 packets of the sauce each.
One couple were disappointed when they drove 4 hours from Canada for a chance at sauce.
Others have seen it as an opportunity to make some profit.
While many just couldn't stop laughing.
every time a group of entitled nerds gets mad a portion of them become nazis. some dipshit is becoming radicalized off the cartoon bbq sauce— jon hendren (@fart) October 8, 2017
There is some good news, though. McDonald's announced that the sauce will make a return this winter.
The best fans in the multiverse showed us what they got today. We hear you & we're sorry not everyone could get some super-limited Szechuan.— McDonald's (@McDonalds) October 7, 2017
Hopefully things go better next time.
