No Chopsticks This Time

Chicken McNuggets with Szechuan Sauce
McDonald's (2018)
I'm not at all a fan of Rick and Morty, but I'm happy that it helped inspire some interesting fast food.  McDonald's originally had szechuan sauce in 1998 as part of their Mulan promotion.  I didn't try it back then, but this new sauce reminds me of the Asian-themed McNuggets that came out when I was six years old.

In 1986, McDonald's sold Shanghai McNuggets.  They came with chopsticks and a McFortune Cookie, and your choice of three dipping sauces: Hot Mustard, Sweet & Sour and Teriyaki.  I remember that the Teriyaki was my favorite, and it was fun to eat McNuggets with chopsticks, but they sadly haven't come back since the 80's.
