In Numbers Sauce stunt
Number of packets of Szechuan sauce that some McDonald’s restaurants had in stock last weekend, while others had none. This proved too few to satisfy angry fans, leading to protests and police involvement – all in the US, obviously.
Years since this dipping sauce last made an appearance in McDonald’s as part of a tie-in with Disney film Mulan. It has been since been given cult status by animated television show Rick and Morty.
Price on eBay earlier this week for an unopened packet of McDonald’s “really, really limited” edition Szechuan sauce. The fast food chain now says it will bring it back again.
