Couldn’t get your palms on a limited-edition bottle of Special Sauce? Bring the Golden Arches to you.
Recently, McDonald’s made its well-known Special Sauce on hand for purchaseby way of the bottle. But before you get your hopes up Big Mac fans, there is a catch: The bottles had been onlysold in Australia, and there have beensolely 4,000 bottles available, for a confined time. And that “limited time” turned out to be 15 minutes, due to the fact it really is how long it took them to promote out.
Of course, it didn’t take long for the “secret sauce” to give up up on public sale web sites like eBay, with prices surging upwards of $100. (This is surely the second time McDonald’s has sold a limited run of Big Mac sauce in Australia; in 2014, the agency auctioned off limited-edition bottles on eBay, with bids starting at $18,000, to benefit Ronald McDonald Charities.) But as delicious as the sauce might also be, spending that variety of cash on condiments is not simply in our budgets—especially on the grounds that the sauce isn’tactually a “secret.
According to McDonalds.com, these are the ingredients:
Soybean Oil, Pickle Relish (Diced Pickles, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Sugar, Vinegar, Corn Syrup, Salt, Calcium Chloride, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Spice Extractives, Polysorbate 80), Distilled Vinegar, Water, Egg Yolks, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Onion Powder, Mustard Seed, Salt, Spices, Propylene Glycol Alginate, Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Mustard Bran, Sugar, Garlic Powder, Vegetable Protein (Hydrolyzed Corn, Soy and Wheat), Caramel Color, Extractives of Paprika, Soy Lecithin, Turmeric (Color), Calcium Disodium EDTA (Protect Flavor).
Since we’re inclined to guess you don’t have ‘Xanthan Gum’ or ‘Sodium Benzoate’ in your pantry, there are a lotless complicated (and slightly healthier) ways to replicate the recipe. (Thanks, YouTube!) In 2012, McDonald’s Canada genuinely posted a demo of how to make its Big Mac sauce:
