KUSA - Did you know McDonald's was about to start offering 'Buttermilk Crispy Tenders' this Saturday? Or that their limited-edition Szechuan sauce was making a return to select stores about the country.
The sauce, originally released as part of a promotion for the Disney animated classic, Mulan, it existed for only a couple months. But earlier this year, the popular show Rick and Morty used it as a punchline (the main character said his only goal in life was getting more "Mulan McNugget sauce").
Little did anyone know, that joke started a firestorm. The sauce was back in vogue, and requests for the sauce to return were constantly pelted at the fast-food giant.
So now, for one day only, on October 7, certain Colorado McDonald's will actually offer the sauce - but also collectible sauce-themed posters.
With the release of the new tenders and the restocking of Szechuan sauce, McDonald's is also debuting a brand new sauce: Signature sauce - meant to compliment the taste of the tenders.
You can get a poster or, if the restaurant is offering it, Szechuan sauce with an order of tenders beginning on October 7 at 2 p.m. It's first-come, first-serve, so get yours quick!
