In the popular animated TV show Rick & Morty, Rick – a crazed mad scientist – has memories of the day that McDonalds released a special edition Szechuan sauce to promote a movie, and then discontinued it.
He craves the special sauce, and fans of the show started asking McDonalds to bring it back!
Well, they listened.
McDonalds decided to bring the sauce back after a 19-year hiatus, and now Rick & Morty fans are freaking out.
McDonalds locations in the United States had long line-ups as fans tried to get their hands on packets of the sauce.
Some locations such as the one shown below, only had 70 packets of the sauce available, and 1000 people lined up to get one.
