23-Year-Old Trades McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce For 2000 VW Golf

Unless you’re a diehard fan of either McDonald’s, the animated film Mulan or TV show Rick and Morty, this story may confuse you greatly. It certainly left us scratching our heads.

The story all starts in 1998 when McDonald’s released a limited-time condiment, Szechuan teriyaki dipping sauce, to celebrate the release of Mulan. After the film, the sauce disappeared into obscurity until a 2017 episode of Rick and Morty featured Szechuan Sauce prominently.

Immediately following the release of the episode, fans called for McDonald’s to bring back the dipping sauce and on October 7, 2017, it did just that. A selection of restaurants across the United States received the sauce but in most cases, just 20 packets were distributed to each restaurant.

Given the extraordinary demand for the sauce and the tight supply, some people have gone to extraordinary lengths to get their hands on a packet. Yes, that even includes trading an Mk4 2000 Volkswagen Golf for the sauce.

Speaking to Huffington Post, 23-year-old graphic designer Rachel Marie revealed that she got offered the opportunity to trade the sauce for a car by a dedicated fan of Rick and Morty.

      But it’s a car. In exchange for some crappy sauce.

    When I hear Szechuan sauce, I think back to that idiot who made a fool of himself at McDonalds. Still, though, Szechuan sauce for a Golf?

    Ok, to be fair, it’s nothing to write home about but sauce?!

    Blue hair and trouble glasses. Stay away men.

      Care to post a pic of your hideous visage? Your comments have a distinct “swipe left” about them steeped in douchebaggery so I’m guessing that you’re all kinds of handsome.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Sounds like she wins.

  • Is that a diesel? I think the girl got scammed.

  • Shobin Drogan

    If only people give half as much attention to the mass shootings and other serious problems around the world…

    • Auf Wiedersehen

      Attention is one thing…the news stations border on obsession. Why not a little lighthearted silly story to break up the anxiety and depression that most news brings to people?

      • Shobin Drogan

        I find this more sad than light-hearted to be honest. The extent people would go to for this pos sauce is just so pathetic. Good for the girl though.

    She’s going to get a Check Engine lamp…

    • LWOAP

      Nah, I think she traded the car for the sauce.

  • thunder bolt

    I’d assume she doesn’t need a ride to ‘work’.
