As previously teased, the official condiment ofRick and Morty is back. That’s right, the sweet and spicy delight known as Szechuan sauce has returned to McDonald’s locations nationwide. The fast food chain confirmed via Twitter on Monday that 20 million Szechuan cups are up for grabs. Hopefully that’s enough to keep sauce-hungry Rick and Morty stans at bay.

The condiment was originally introduced in 1998 to promote Disney’s film Mulan. The Adult Swim cartoon brought it back with a reference to the discontinued sauce in the first episode of Rick and Morty’s third season, “The Rickshank Redemption.” After the latest season aired, McDonald's gifted series creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon with gallons of Szechuan. In October, the fast food chain teased fans with a limited supply that people went crazy for. McDonald’s reassured customers that the sauce would be making a bigger comeback this winter, and it looks like they are following through with that promise.

"Last October, we truly meant well when we brought back a super-limited batch of Szechuan Sauce, but it quickly became apparent we did not make enough to meet the expectations of our fans," McDonald's said in a statement. "We did not anticipate the overnight crowds, the cross-state travel and the amazing curiosity, passion and energy fans showed."

Szechuan is still only available for as long as supplies last. Twenty million sauce cups seems like a lot, but if you’re really crazy for this Asian-inspired dip I suggest you head over to a McDonald’s ASAP and stock up—people are already selling the sauce on eBay.
