Fans call for McDonald's 'boycott' following Szechuan sauce snafu

McDonald's was either incredibly incompetent in not understanding the demand for the sauce, or deeply cynical in that they knew this would more or less be the result and garner them plenty of media attention.

But instead of slathering the sauce on a Big Mac or fries, Marie kept hers to see what she could get for it. Marie posted the sauce on Pin Nation, a Facebook group popular with festival goers and "Rick and Morty" fans where users can trade different pins and jewelry. Now McDonald's is speaking out and trying to make things right.

McDonald's Szechuan sauce frenzy has left numerous "Rick and Morty" fans angry and disappointed after the fast-food chain failed to deliver the promised sauce and free posters in some of its outlets.

European Union says Brexit talks 'deadlocked' but progress possible
Mindful that the clock is ticking, Barnier reaffirmed that parting with "no deal will be a very bad deal". Around one third of the negotiating time has already elapsed.

You spoke. We've listened. And, this time they have promised to bring it back in more locations and with lot more of stock. And for its part, the fast food chain minimized the availability of Szechuan sauce on its website in favor of promoting the chicken tenders.

The statement didn't provide an exact date for the sauce's return, but it should go a long way to ease some of the anger fans had after Saturday's sauce fiasco.

McDonald's announced last week that for one-day only, the fast food restaurant would carry the Szechuan sauce for customers at participating locations.

Southwest Airlines Announces Intention To Serve Hawaii
However, the ETOPS certified 737-800 airplanes will initially fly the routes so that the launch date can be accelerated. Southwest says its capacity plans for 2018 remain unchanged with the Hawaii announcement.

Rick and Morty co-creator Roiland took to Twitter to share his concern over the issue and urge the fan base not to create any kind of rampage at McDonald's stores.

According to Richard Adams, a former McDonald's franchisee, "There were some stores that just had 20 packets". On eBay, packets of the sauce are going for hundreds of dollars, but he probably paid the highest price as a good condition Golf can probably fetch around $2,000 even without a clean title.

Hopefully this second coming of the second coming of Szechuan Sauce will go much more smoothly.
