In 1998, the sauce was a promotional tie-in with the release of the Disney animated film “Mulan,” according to Fox News.

In addition to the sauce itself being available in limited amounts, there are other limitations too. Customers can’t go through the drive-thru for the beloved sauce -- they have to dine in.
