For fast-food aficionados attempting to recreate the Big Mac's majesty inside a home kitchen, there is one thing that is always missing. And no, it's not a ball pit, a pimply teenage cashier, or 40 screaming toddlers. It's the Golden Arches' legendary special (or "secret") sauce, which has somehow stayed secret (well, mostly). Now, for the first time, Americans have a chance to snag a whole bottle of the salmon-colored wunder-condiment. McDonald's is literally giving it away, notes Mashable.
The fast-food mega-chain toyed with giving away bottles of special sauce in Australia in early 2015. It released 200 bottles to massive customer interest. Some of the bottles ended up on eBay, selling for almost $20k. That's about 5,000 Big Macs, for reference.
This new special sauce giveaway will see the release of 10,000 new bottles of special sauce in the States, released in conjunction with the unveiling of two new Big Macs (a Big Mac Jr. and a Grand Big Mac). Details of the promotion -- most important, how to snag a bottle of the Big Mac sauce -- will be made available to the public on January 25.
