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.
