Szweet Szurprise! McDonald's Brings Back a Limited Supply of Szechuan Sauce for One Day Only
October 05, 2017
Limited-edition poster and sauce will come to select restaurants on Saturday, October 7 only
OAK BROOK, IL--(Marketwired - Oct 5, 2017) - After listening to customers' enthusiasm for Szechuan Sauce over the past few months, McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) has revealed the final addition to its gig-style poster lineup designed by artists from Delicious Design League. For the most obsauced fans, McDonald's even produced small batches of Szechuan Sauce dipping packets. The savory and slightly sweet sauce with hints of soy, ginger, garlic, and slight vinegar notes will be available, along with limited-edition posters, at participating restaurants on Saturday, October 7.
Last week, McDonald's unveiled nine limited-edition, dipping sauce-themed posters to introduce the new Buttermilk Crispy Tenders made with 100 percent white meat chicken and no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, seasoned, battered and breaded to perfection. Each custom, screen-printed poster allows customers to showcase their sauce passions for Creamy Ranch, Honey, Honey Mustard, Hot Mustard, Spicy Buffalo, Sriracha Mac Sauce, Sweet 'n Sour, Tangy Barbeque and the new Signature Sauce. However, the collection wouldn't be complete without the restaurant's most talked about sauce, Szechuan Sauce.
"Guys, we did it. After returning with the Szechuan Sauce from the always-1998 dimension, C-1998M, we did some science and now we have a bit more sauce! Technology is amazing. But delivering for our customers is even better," said McDonald's Chef Michael Haracz. "I can't wait for fans to taste the savory, sweet flavor of Szechuan Sauce paired with our new Buttermilk Crispy Tenders. It's a great moment for McDonald's and our fans that I'm definitely not taking for granite."
Customers will have the chance to receive their favorite limited-edition sauce poster, including a Szechuan Sauce poster, with the purchase of Buttermilk Crispy Tenders at participating McDonald's restaurants on Saturday, October 7, beginning at 2 p.m. local time while supplies last. Select restaurants will also have limited quantities of Szechuan Sauce dipping packets while supplies last. Limited-edition stickers of the poster designs will also be available when the collectible posters and sauces run out.
A full list of the nearly 1,000 participating McDonald's restaurants and more details surrounding the posters and Szechuan Sauce giveaway on Saturday, October 7 can be found at www.buttermilkcrispytenders.com.
Fans are encouraged to show their sauce love using #ButtermilkCrispyTenders.
