Nearly 20-year-old McDonald's sauce sells for $14,700 USD

A packet of McDonald’s Szechuan dipping sauce from 1998 sold in an online auction after a $14,700 (€13,732.54) bid.

The sauce was released as a promotional item for the Disney animated film Mulan and recently became the subject of internet obsession after being referenced on the show Rick and Morty.

Fans of the cartoon series have called on the fast-food chain to re-release the sauce, with one online petition amassing over 35,000 signatures.

According to the listing from a UK-based seller, they bought an old car and found the nearly 20-year-old sauce and corresponding wasabi sauce while cleaning it out. The auction closed after 187 bids.
