After one Rick & Morty episode, McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce, or “Mulan Sauce,” as described by the cartoon, went viral. The sauce had been discontinued and, at one point, was bid up to thousands of dollars on eBay.
McDonald’s saw this reignited demand for the sauce and decided to bring it back, so we got our hands on their Szechuan Sauce and took it out to the real Sichuan to see if it would pass the authenticity test. We invited a few locals to try the sauce with us to see how they'd react.
