McDonald's 20-year-old dipping sauce sells for almost $15000 on Ebay

McDonald's 20-year-old dipping sauce sells for almost $15000 on Ebay

More recently however, the Szechuan sauce has risen to prominence after "Rick and Morty" character Rick Sanchez revealed in a deranged, alcohol-fueled rant that his sole objective in life will now be to get a taste of "that Mulan Szechuan teriyaki dipping sauce" one more time.

In the surprise April Fools' Day episode, Rick And Morty creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland chose to fill the episode with references to this legendary sauce, and a pack just sold on eBay-for $14,700.

McDonalds released its Szechuan sauce back in 1998, and it seemingly disappeared from people's minds-that is, until the newest episode of Rick And Morty.

The condiment, which came with a packet of wasabi sauce, was originally part of a publicity campaign for the animated Disney movie "Mulan". I want that Mulan McNugget sauce, Morty, that's my series arc, Morty, if it takes nine seasons.

The seller, who is from Ipswich, explained that the sauce packet was found in a recently purchased "really old car".

Pence arrived in Tokyo from South Korea, where he assured leaders of the "iron-clad" alliance with the United States. North Korea could potentially strike Australia if its missile program was allowed to continue, she said.

In the episode, perpetually drunk genius Rick complains about McDonald discontinuing the sauce.

The episode has inspired a Change.org petition to bring back the sauce, which has already garnered more than 35,000 signatures.

"We never say never because, when our customers speak, we listen", McDonald's representative Terri Hickey was quoted by USA Today as saying.

Then, making a "Rick and Morty" reference, she added, "And to paraphrase some of our most enthusiastic fans, our sauce is so good that it would be worth waiting nine seasons or 97 years for". I would prefer not to sell it to a collector.
