Secret Sauce

McDonald’s has always been very secretive about the secret ingredient in their Big Mac Special Sauce but the recipe is about to be released!

The sauce goes on sale in all McDonald’s locations in 25ml takeaway pots around Australia – only 200 will be sold. A single 500ml bottle is currently on auction on eBay for $23,100 to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House.

However, if you can’t afford a trip to Australia or a bid on eBay, you can always make the sauce yourself as the franchise has been forced to release the ingredients now that the sauce is on sale.

So are you a Big Mac fan?
