    I think anyone that watched the show would know the sauce flavor was inspired by Disney's "Mulan" and not R&M.

    So anyone try it yet? Did the local McDonald's have adequate supply?

    Seems fair to say that the sauce was inspired (cross-marketed) by Mulan, but that the recent revival of the "Mulan" sauce was inspired by Rick and Morty.

    I was worried because I forgot about Monday. Went yesterday for lunch and placed my order. The lady knew about the sauce, but had no idea about its origin/fame. They had plenty and there was no mad rush.

    Anyway. It was edible. Not great. Not bad. It was a fun adventure, but I wouldn't time travel for it.

    I saw someone describe it as corn syrup with Worcestershire sauce. Still I want to try it. I'd be interested if anybody remembers what the original tasted like and if this compares.

    How is that misleading?
    The sauce do-over is directly due to Rick and Morty.
    Sure the original sauce was a cross promotion with Disney for Mulan, but if Rick didn't mention it in a Rick and Morty episode there would have been no fiasco last October and they wouldn't have the 20 million packets now. So the inspiration for this is Rick and Morty. It's a do-over for the last botched attempt.

    A great big meh. Definitely not worth time traveling for. It's purpose was best served as a plot device for Rick and Morty. It definitely was not worth all the hoopla.

    I definitely got a bit of (American?) traditional sweet Chinese flavor. I'm not great with identifying flavors, but I think it was like a plum sauce or a duck sauce just not as good.

    Still I'm glad I tried it.

    Yeah, I just tried it and it's rather nondescript. Just kinda of sweet with no strong flavors.

    Glad I at least tried it but I won't be going back for seconds.

    If you didn’t yell Pickle Rick like a frothing at the mouth fanboy and act asinine in other ways while eating it, then you weren’t doing it right.

    I like it, i'll go back for more. Better than glow-in-the-dark sweet'n'sour, not as sweet as teriyaki, now you have me wishing they really would do plum sauce.

    My McWorker asked me if I would be selling my packets on eBay. I assured her that, nope, I really did want to eat the sauce.

    I tried the sauce Sunday night. It won't replace my favorite sweet and sour sauce.

    Nobody seriously thought it would be any good, did they?

    I didn't know what to expect, but I definitely thought it would be better than what it turned out to be. Yes, I was slightly disappointed.

    If it were good the first time, they would have kept it.

    It was just a movie tie-in. I think it would have to have been tremendously popular for them to keep it permanently.

    I remember it then. It was ok, not great. It’s Chicken McNugget sauce. None of them are great. They also had a Cinnamon Apple sauce for A Bug’s Life that I remember liking.

    I have a sweet tooth. I liked it, but can understand why others don't. I'd ask for it again if still available.

    Or that Dan Harmon just liked it enough to make it a plot device.

    I think the deep fried apple pies were fantastic but they went away too.

    Finally tried the Szechuan Sauce- didn't hate/like... just was a blander sweet and sour with a little brown thrown in. No garlic, no chili peppers, not pungent or spicy- there's nothing Szechuan about it.

    And millennials rioted for this?
