The year was 1998, and McDonald’s was paired promotionally with Disney once again, for the release of Mulan. As a result, they had a limited time offer of special Mulan Szechuan Dipping Sauce for their chicken mcnuggets and it was wonderful.
Then they stopped making it after the movie was done in theaters and we all moved on.
Fast forward to 2017. Rick and Morty drop the trailer for Season 3 and THIS happens:
Suddenly we all remember that Mulan dipping sauce, and we want it back! One lone bottle was found and sold on Ebay for $1400 and the internet rallied to find more. Enter David Wasman – a man who somehow had a sample of the sauce that he sent to YouTube famous Chef Andrew Rea of Binging with Babish. He hoped that Rea could recreate the sauce by using the listed ingredients and his acute taste buds.
Chef Andrew Rea did not let us down.
