Rick and Morty fans are an obsessive bunch and I should know. After their surprise season three premier on April Fools Day all I could think about was that sweet Mulan McNugget dipping sauce. See, in 1998 McDonalds ran a promotional tie-in for the Disney animated film Mulan, where not only could you get chicken nuggets in a Chinese food container, but you could also get a limited edition Szechuan sauce. Rick revealed in the closing moments of the season 3 opener that not only was end game 9 more seasons, but to once again taste the limited edition dipping sauce.
After the episode McDonalds was besieged to bring back the sauce and there was even a change.org petition that got 22,000 signatures; but one Philly fan has taken it one step farther. Brettzo, who is no stranger to Geekadelphia and works at Condiment in Reading Terminal Market has given fans his own take The Schwifty Sauce. Pulling from McDonanld’s own list of ingredients, Youtube how-to videos and pairing that with his condiment expertise he has given us a delicious tangy sauce that tastes more like we would probably imagine the sauce tasted like. Like any true Rick and Morty fan Brettzo made the sauce because thanks to that episode he simply had to have it.
After picking up a bottle, and pairing it with a fresh 20 piece I could totally see how this would be Rick’s endgame.
