McDonald's offers a sweet surprise for "obsauced" fans

McDonald's first released its Szechuan teriyaki dipping sauce as a limited-edition promotion for the premiere of the Disney movie "Mulan" in 1998.

The new chicken tenders and sauce are now available at all area McDonald's and UberEats.

Badger State Szechuan sauce chasers can also find it in Beloit at 45 State St. and in Milwaukee at 1614 E. North Ave., 2455 W. Wisconsin Ave. and 6631 W. North Ave. They are using this mysterious "Signature Sauce" as a ploy to get its customers interested.

The chain also is giving away 1,000 limited edition screen-printed posters at each of its locations (even those not offering the sauce) that pay homage to each of its 10 dipping sauces. The tenders on their own are perfectly acceptable (and will no doubt taste phenomenal at 3 a.m. after a Friday night out), but become exceptional when dipped in Szechuan. That goes for the fries too, which I used to scrape every last ounce of sauce stuck to the container.

Szechuan Sauce is a former Chicken McNuggets condiment.

The release comes at an unfortunate time for one Szechuan Sauce fan. According to the Eater, a person made a bid worth over $14,000 in April to buy a pair of the 19-year old sauces. But make no mistake, I care and obsess about food so much that I would never let that cloud my judgment.

If you're like Rick from "Rick and Morty" and have an unhealthy obsession with that "Mulan McNugget Sauce" that McDonald's discontinued in 1998, well, dreams do come true. It will be available at only four McDonald's restaurants in South Florida on October 7, starting at 2 p.m.

Ohio University students can get their hands on some of that sweet sauce at the Mcdonald's on Richland Avenue.

Those who don't watch Rick and Morty, or at least follow along with the fan base on social media, may find it unusual that McDonald's has chose to bring back the rare sauce after nearly two decades, but it's something that will undoubtedly be welcomed by all.

Oh...did-did you guys want this?
