McDonald’s to give away 10,000 bottles of special sauce

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    A McDonald’s restaurant in East Palo Alto, Calif., as seen in April 2012. The chain is giving away 10,000 bottles of its trademark special sauce for people to use at home.

SAN FRANCISCO >> To get you come into McDonald’s and buy new versions of its Big Mac, the chain is giving away 10,000 bottles of its trademark special sauce for people to use at home.

The move is to celebrate the introduction of the Mac Jr. and the Grand Mac, two different-sized variations of the classic sandwich.

The giveaway is a first in the United States.

McDonald’s introduced the Big Mac in 1968. In 1975, the special sauce got its own callout in the signature Big Mac commercial, touting the burger’s components—“Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.”

The bottles will be available Thursday at participating locations nationwide.

Additional details on how and where customers can get their hands on a bottle are expected to be released later today.

  • Isn’t their “special sauce” just 1,000 Island dressing watered down with mayonnaise? Or, as “The Simpsons” said, just leave a jar of mayonnaise out in the sun.

  • Don’t know if adding the spaces will allow this to post, but THIS is what the Star-Advertiser sends to moderation:

    I s n ’ t t h e i r “s p e c i a l s a u c e” j u s t 1,000 I s l a n d d r e s s i n g, w a t e r e d d o w n w i t h m a y o n n a i s e? O r, a s “T h e S i m p s o n s” s a i d, j u s t l e a v e a j a r o f m a y o n n a i s e o u t i n t h e s u n.

  • What should they call their Big Mac now? Anyone who has purchased this will see how small it really is compared to other comparable burgers from other chains. It should really be called Mac. It surely ain’t BIG.
