If someone carried out a survey in 1998 asking people what product they thought would become most valuable in 2017, they probably would have said something like ‘gold’ or ‘stocks in a technology company’. But they would have been idiots, because the correct answer would obviously be the Szechuan sauce that McDonalds released for a short time in 1998 to accompany the release of the animated movie ‘Mulan‘.

The sauce has become a huge topic of convo ever since it was brought up on an episode of ‘Rick & Morty‘ earlier this year, and the thirst for it has only grown stronger, with a full-on bidding war for the stuff now in motion.

We knew that Maccas recently promised to send the ‘Rick & Morty guys a glorious jug of the sweet nectar, and they absolutely came through by not only doing that, but also giving away a bottle each to three fans. One of the fans, Robert Workman, immediately took to social media to share his score.

‘Rick & Morty’ Fans Are In A Huge Bidding War Over A Jug Of Szechuan Sauce

He then decided to chuck his precious cargo up on eBay (with some of the proceeds going to charity), and it has resulted in a bidding war that has even pulled in some famous Szechuan lovers, like DJ deadmau5.

The bidding is currently up to $5500, with two days left for fiends of the show (or sauce) to bid. The eBay listing says they won’t ship to Oz, so you might need to fork out a few grand more if you really want a taste of that delicious drop.
