McDonald’s Is Selling Tubes Of Big Mac Special Sauce… But Only In Australia

If you’ve ever wanted to slather McDonald’s Big Mac special sauce on a home-cooked burger but didn’t have the energy or motivation to make your own copycat version, then the idea that company is now selling bottles of the yellow-orange sauce is probably exciting. That is until you find out you can only get it in Australia.

ABC News reports that McDonald’s is selling the sauce directly to consumers for the first time.

“For too long Big Mac Special Sauce has been trapped in a beautiful, delicious burger – now we’ve set it free!” the company announced.

McDonald’s restaurants in Australia began selling the 25-milliliter tubes (about an ounce) today, and will continue to do so until they are sold out.

“Big Mac sauce is one of the most iconic McDonald’s ingredients and people often ask us where they can buy it, so we’re excited to be the first country in the world to offer tubes of Big Mac sauce to our customers,” McDonald’s CMO Australia Mark Lollback says.

McDonald's in Australia is auctioning a 500-ml bottle of Big Mac sauce.

If about an ounce of sauce isn’t enough for you, then you might be interested in the limited edition large bottle listed on eBay. The sale of the 500-milliliter bottle is being auctioned to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

“With 500 ml to play with, you’ll have enough to impress your friends at dinner parties, cheat your way to cooking show fame, and get elected as Prime Minister!” the listing boasts.

The bottle has so far garnered 135 bids, the highest being $23,100.

Of course if you don’t want to shell out the big bucks – or don’t live in Australia – you can always make the sauce at home. Back in 2012, the company’s executive chef demonstrated in a YouTube video just how you can make the iconic sauce yourself.
