Most of us have probably been to McDonald’s enough times to know the menu by now. After all, the fast-food chain thrives on keeping things simple, with a handful of staple items sold alongside the odd limited promotion. But over the years, everything from McPizza to McHotDogs have been tested, rolled out and subsequently thrown under the Golden Arches, often never to be heard from again. And these menu items are frequently so crazy that we can’t believe anyone ever took them seriously.

In 1998 McDonald’s launched a tie-in promotion for Disney’s then-new film Mulan, adding Szechuan sauce to the menu. Nineteen years later, the sauce was featured in the hit animated series Rick and Morty, and so McDonald’s ran a one-day return in October 2017. Unfortunately, though, supplies were so limited that police were called to at least one restaurant to quell angry fans as they collectively chanted, “We want sauce!”
