Rick and Morty-themed McDonald's Szechuan sauce selling for insane prices on eBay

The fast-food chain may have underestimated the level of demand

Rick and Morty continues to dramatically expand the market for McDonald’s Szechuan sauce.

As if the dipping sauce’s unexpected one-day-only return to the fast-food mega-chain wasn’t enough, new listings on eBay are proving that fans are willing to pay top dollar for it — aftermarket price hikes which might just give McDonald’s some new product ideas.

Indeed, per the online commerce site, miniscule 0.5 ML packets of Szechuan sauce are going for anywhere from $60 to — you may want to sit down for this — $700. (One listing even goes to $1,000.) And some sellers, predictably, are running scams, a.ssuming you don’t consider paying hundreds of dollars for a pack of fast-food dipping sauce a total ripoff as well.


To recap: In the Rick and Morty season 3 premiere, Rick’s hilarious tangent about wanting that “Mulan McNuggets Sauce” — a reference to the Szechuan sauce’s debut as promotion for the 1998 Disney film — inspired the Adult Swim cartoon’s ever-expanding fanbase to call on McDonald’s to revive the product. The chain obliged last week, holding a one-day-only event on Sunday — and judging by the rapid shift to sites like eBay, it appeared that packets of the sauce ran out rather quickly.

McDonald’s confirmed the sad news on Twitter, apologizing to “the best fans in the multiverse” who didn’t get a taste. Some complained that the restaurant empire was ill-prepared to handle the demand.


Rick declared that finding more Szechuan sauce was his “series arc … even if it takes nine seasons!” As to whether he’d pay $700 dollars for a pack? That remains an open question. But one thing seems clear: Dan Harmon, Rick & Morty‘s co-creator, probably won’t be making any bids.

“I personally thought it was a sauce that was trying too hard in a world where with McNuggets sauce you just want something to taste like honey or like a BBQ sauce,” Harmon recently told EW. “It was sauce that was trying to prove it was different and in doing so it worked harder than a sauce should; it was working too hard to be a sauce …”

I remember the original Mulan dipping sauce. I disagree with the article in the OP, it was actually good, but people are really crazy paying so much for it.

But that Sriracha Mac dipping sauce...

It's free at McDonald's, they just had a limited supply that they ran out of very quickly because they were only giving it away for 24 hours. People were (are?) selling them on eBay because a lot of people who wanted it didn't get it... But McDonald's is bringing it back for the whole winter it sounds like based on the demand so not sure if these things are selling on eBay still given that there's about to be a lot more supply out there

The Szechuan sauce fiasco proves Rick and Morty fans don’t understand Rick and Morty

"It’s funny because McDonald’s is attempting to reference how Rick talks without paying the creators of Rick anything while making both brands look bad while also highlighting how quickly online fandom can turn into angry mobs in real life. OK, maybe this isn’t funny at all. Maybe the whole situation is sick, and you’re right to feel a little sick when you read about it.
"Because the fans don’t understand any level of what’s going on. If they understood Rick, they wouldn’t care about the sauce because no one in the show really cares about the sauce. It was never referenced in the show again. Dan Harmon himself explained to us that the line was put there just to rip on co-creator Justin Roiland’s love for the sauce. If they understood Morty, they would be kinder to the McDonald’s workers who didn’t ask for any of this.
"And if they understood the point of the show so far — that living only for yourself is destructive and selfish no matter how smart you are — they would be ashamed at how they’re acting."
