McDonald's Big Mac Special Sauce Dipping Pots Will Be Available Tomorrow
We're all lovers of the McDonald's Big Mac sauce - which makes the news about them selling 50ml pots of the stuff all the better.
That's right, as of tomorrow the fast food fave will be flogging dipping pots of the 'Special Sauce' for 50p a pop.
So, as of 5am on Wednesday 12 February (tomorrow, if you needed to be told again) the sauce will go on sale in restaurants across the UK.
If you just can't possibly wait that long and happen to be close to a central London McDonald's, it might be your lucky day. The fast food restaurant is giving away 250 bottles of the stuff for free from 3pm today.
The numbered bottles, a must for any Big Mac fan, will be the first to get their hands on the sauce outside of a Big Mac itself since 2016 when a Big Mac Special Sauce cartridge and gun reached bids in excess of £65,000 on eBay for charity.
To find out where these bottles will be given out follow McDonalds UK on Instagram at @McDonaldsUK and keep an eye on its feed and stories.
The ingredients and quantities of the Special Sauce have always been a closely guarded secret. With millions of people trying to recreate the taste at in their own kitchens - you can now take the taste of McDonald's home with one of the 50ml pots.
You'll have to be quick though! The Special Sauce pots are only available for six weeks and are expected to quickly sell-out.
The sauce will have a seven-day shelf life - not that they'll last that long, I'm sure.
While they'll be available 24 hours a day from restaurants that are open that long - once they're gone, they're gone. You'll have to act fast if you want to nab some for yourself.
Once the 50p pots are no longer a thing, you can always follow one chef's recreation of it from your very own kitchen.
Miguel Barclay is known for his 'One Pound Meals' series on Instagram, which last year included a homemade Big Mac. The 35-year-old says his doppelganger of the classic burger takes only minutes to makes and tastes just as good.
According to the McDonald's website, its special sauce contains a fair few ingredients: 'Soybean Oil, Sweet Relish (Diced Pickles, Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Distilled Vinegar, Salt, Corn Syrup, Xanthan Gum, Calcium Chloride, Spice Extractives), Water, Egg Yolks, Distilled Vinegar, Spices, Onion Powder, Salt, Propylene Glycol Alginate, Garlic Powder, Vegetable Protein (Hydrolyzed Corn, Soy and Wheat), Sugar, Caramel Color, Turmeric, Extractives of Paprika, Soy Lecithin'.
Barclay's version may not taste exactly the same, but it sure is simpler to recreate yourself, as it uses mayonnaise, mustard and his very own secret ingredient: a pinch of tarragon.
