’90s Food Crushing it on eBay


TIME – A 20-year-old dipping sauce from McDonald’s sold for nearly $15,000 after a mention in the show Rick and Morty.

A listing for the Szechuan sauce, which was released as a promotional product for the Disney movie Mulan, closed with a winning bid of $14,700.
Back in January I said “the hassle to mail a bottle of salad dressing didn’t seem worth the fifty-odd bucks I’d probably pocket after fees and shipping,” after scoring a bottle of Big Mac sauce. I may have misunderestimated.

I’m reluctant to buy groceries on eBay. I can’t forget what happened to the dude who drank the 20-year-old bottle of Crystal Pepsi. But after all the research that’s been wasted conducted on McDonald’s burgers and fries that don’t rot, I’d be comfortable making an exception for McDonald’s food on eBay.

All that being said, $15k on McNugget dipping sauce is asinine. I’ve got a half empty bottle of teriyaki sauce in my fridge right now that I’d be happy to part with for $4500. I could even draw the golden arches on it with a Sharpie if you’d like. I’m sure my grandmother has some sugar packets hanging around from the late ’90s too. I’ll throw a few in just as a bonus.

But the bottom line is that any food product that was even halfway decent in the ’90s will get brought back at some point. Wonder how this guy will feel about coughing up $15k when this stuff hits stores again next fall. And I thought the Weymouth McDonald’s charging 25 cents for sauce was a crime.
