With Season 3 of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty underway, there has been much buzz surrounding a discontinued McDonald’s sauce referenced in the first episode. McDonald’s even gifted Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland a bottle of the sauce packaged up in a special Dimension C-1998M travel case.

One savvy eBay seller was able to seriously cash in on Rick’s obsession with the McSzechuan sauce from 1998, successfully selling it for a whopping $15,000.

TIME reports that author Robert Workman first got his hands on the sauce thanks to a recent contest McDonald’s held at the end of July. He then sold the 64 oz bottle of sauce for $15,000 on eBay, writing that he would use the proceeds to "help out others and pay a few bills."

According to the eBay listing, 10 percent of the money raised from the sale of the sauce will go to Extra Life, a charity focused on ill and injured children, with another 10 percent going to other causes.

One of the bidders was Canadian DJ Deadmau5, according to a tweet he posted earlier this week.

Despite the bidding war involving around 100 McSzechuan sauce hopefuls, Workman said there’s been no response or payment from the auction winner.

Revisit the McSzechuan sauce-referencing clip from Season 3 of Rick and Morty below.

If you don't have $15,000 to spare for McDonald’s Szechuan sauce, here’s how to make your own.
