Of course, I wasn’t the only one in China excited about this. Actually, I was swept into this craze just as it arrived in China and the foreigner community here exploded with excitement on WeChat.

People were so eager about this Rick & Morty sauce being available here in China that it side-tracked a number of WeChat groups that I’m in.
The internet points (karma) on Reddit obviously means nothing. But it feels great to contribute something to the site which has offered me so much over the years.
