OMG, You Can Now Buy McDonald's Secret Burger Sauces

But there's a catch.

Posted on

In the world of fast food, Big Macs are the unmatched burger champs.

Everything from their soft, sesame-speckled buns, to their thin beef patties, to the melted cheese slices always hit the spot...

And of course, there's that inexplicably perfect, creamy sauce that goes into every burger and brings all the ingredients together.

No, it's not just Thousand Island dressing. McDonald’s Director of Global Media Relations Becca Hary told USA Today earlier this year that "The Big Mac Sauce is unique to McDonald’s and includes a classic combination of ingredients.” In other words, IT’S A SECRET.

Well, good news: Starting this spring, McDonald’s special sauces will be available at grocery stores. The bad news? Only in Canada.

The line-up will include Big Macs' proprietary sauce, as well as the special Mayonnaise and Tartar sauces.

But “hopefully” they’ll be available in the US soon, too.

Last time McDonald's made the sauces available to the public, they were auctioned on eBay for up to $100.

For a chance at snagging one of the bottles, customers at select U.S. locations were required to speak the code phrase, "There’s a Big Mac for that."

So naturally, people are flipping the eff out:

As for the exact release date, McDonald's is keeping it under wraps.

If you can't do the wait — or the whole Canada thing proves too big an obstacle — you can try and whip up a batch of the sauce yourself via McDonald's YouTube tutorial.

You can also find an easy copycat recipe on Todd Wilbur's Top Secret Recipes that, according to the comments, comes pretty close to the real flavor.
