McDonald’s Is Reintroducing One of Its Cult-Favorite Sauces!

McDonald’s Corporation – McDonald’s, is an American fast-food chain, which is also one of the largest and most popular in the world. It is commonly famous for its hamburgers, especially its Big Macs. The company has its headquarters in Chicago. The first McDonald’s serving restaurant was opened in 1940 by two brothers Maurice (“Mac”) and Richard McDonald in San Bernardino, California, USA. In 1975, it opened its first drive-thru feature in Arizona, USA, which quickly became ubiquitous. Now it has several branches all over the globe. The reason why it expanded so quickly was its successful franchising business model and its sauces and seasonal dressings. McDonald’s first franchise opened in 1967 in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. In the early 21st century, McDonald’s had more than 34000 branches in 115 different regions of the world. It is said Mcdonald’s opens its new branch every 5 hours in some corners of the world.

McDonald’s Has Withstood the Test of Time

Initially, McDonald’s had very limited items on its menu, including hamburgers, potato chips (French fries), pie, and drinks. The aim was to make huge quantities of food at cheap prices. But with the time, McDonald’s evolved its product offerings and it currently has unlimited fast food offerings from kids to Adults, from appetizers to dessert, considering the taste of every region it is operating in, different food options and tastes suitable for respective regions.

Although many other fast food retailers entered and failed in the market, McDonald’s is successful in maintaining its position as a market leader. The reason is not just its addictive taste, which keeps on bringing customers back, but also its marketing strategies, which do not let customers forget about it, but also keep on bringing more and more new customers every day.

To keep the customers engaged and maintain their excitement. McDonald’s keeps on introducing a limited-time share menu. This time it was speculated that it’s bringing back the McRib. However, McDonald’s disclosed that this time it is bringing back its historically most popular and unique dipping Szechuan Sauce.

How the Sauce Tastes

Szechuan sauce is a sweet and spicy sauce, making it desirable for both sweet and spicy lovers. It is made up of a unique, appetizing combination of fresh soy, traditional Chinese garlic, flavorful ginger, and fine mild vinegar with the hint of sesame. Does it not seem mouthwatering?

History of the Szechuan Sauce

It was originally formulated by a Chinese-American student at Cornel University. McDonald’s introduced this sauce in 1998 as a tie-up product with the Disney cartoon ‘Mulan’. Though it was truly loved by the majority, it faced some extreme criticism also due to racial discrimination and stereotyping in its promotional campaign. It was a time when Chinese people were extremely discriminated against the Americans. However, due to its addictive, mouthwatering flavor, it became intensely popular around the world in no time.

The Sauce Made a Comeback in 2017

Due to its fame and continuous demand, Szechuan had its first come back in 2017. This time, McDonald’s promoted it with an entirely different cartoon to eradicate the image of discrimination that happened back in 1998.

McDonald’s had to reintroduce the sauce after it was mentioned in an episode of the well-famed program – Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty in April 2017. Realizing that people were missing the sauce, McDonald’s gave fans a very limited opportunity to taste it in October of that year.

Then again, in 2018 the chain produced nearly 20 million packets of the famous Szechuan sauce over the nation, to satisfy the intense desire and demand of customers.

The reason why McDonald’s always introduces it in limited quantities is to secure its worth and significance in the sight of its customers.
