And now you have the answer: US$14,000 (NZ$20,940).

The infamous dipping sauce worth - apparently - $20,940.

The seller, who is from Ipswich, explained that the sauce packet was found in a recently purchased "really old car". After watching the recent episode of Rick and Morty I went online to see if it was worth anything. Turns out it was. Also this comes with a packet of wasabi as well.

Several more auctions have popped up since, and there are also several petitions circulating online to bring back the sauce; at least one has garnered nearly 40,000 signatures. I would prefer not to sell it to a collector.

McDonald's has made no official announcement regarding the craze over the McNugget companion, instead only jokingly paraphrasing a "Rick and Morty" catchphrase on Twitter by tweeting, "McNugga Lubba Dub Dub".
