Cut to McDonald's wanting to get in on the joke and bringing it back for just one day last year and the resulting mayhem that caused, and thankfully the company re-releasing the sauce again for real now in massive quantities so everyone can get some. As the only McDonald's sauce I really like is the Sweet and Sour option I would surely be unimpressed with this overhyped sauce, right? Well, last weekend my Father was kind enough to buy me a big box of nuggets on his way over to our house (my family was in town visiting) and the McDonald's he stopped at had some of the once sought-after Szechuan Sauce that they were happy to throw a bunch of packets in with my order--apparently I'm lucky as some locations don't have the stuff. I tried the sauce and...it's actually quite good. Who woulda thunk-it?

I guess even if a lot of people ended up missing the point of the joke about Szechuan Sauce on, "Rick and Morty," it worked out for the best as the sauce is actually tasty. I'd encourage anyone who enjoys dipping their nuggets in sauces to give it a try, regardless of their feelings about the television show that helped get it brought back. Now, if only I could convince Baskin Robbins to bring back that ice cream flavor that tied-in with the old, "The Mask," movie I ate decades ago and loved.
