The Wendy’s Co. and Adult Swim’s “Rick and Morty” are partnering again as the Cartoon Network series debuts its sixth season, offering special drinks, combo meals on Uber Eats and themed merchandise.
The Dublin, Ohio-based burger brand, which has partnered with the Emmy Award-wining series before, has created two Coca-Cola Freestyle drink flavors and is offering customer a chance to win limited-edition Rick and Morty’s-themed merchandise through the Uber Eats deals.
“Rick and Morty” is a popular adult animated science-fiction sitcom, based on a mad scientist and his grandson, Morty, that airs in the Cartoon Networks Adult Swim programming block.
The new season premiered Sunday, Sept. 4. Seasons 1 through 5 are available on HBO Max.
Wendy’s partnered with the series in season, and it is bringing back the Portal Time Lemon Lime Freestyle drink and introducing a new flavor: Froopyland Froopunch. Both flavors will be available at more than 5,000 Coca-Cola Freestyle dispensers in Wendy’s locations and on the Wendy’s smartphone app.
The limited-edition combo meals inspired by the hit show are available for delivery exclusively on Uber Eats.
Those two meals are:
- Hot Honey NOT Birdperson Combo: A spicy breaded chicken breast with pepper jack cheese, applewood-smoked bacon, crunchy dill chips and a drizzle of habanero hot honey sauce on a toasted bun with fries and a drink.
- Riggity Riggity Wrecked Combo: A quarter pound beef patty with applewood-smoked bacon, American cheese, crisped onions, bourbon bacon sauce with fries and a drink.
Starting Tuesday, customers who order the Rick and Morty-inspired combo meals on Uber Eats will be entered for a chance to win, from hoodies and sweatpants to bucket hats.
Wendy's, founded in 1969, has about 7,000 restaurants worldwide.
