McDonald’s Big Mac Special Sauce

“Special Sauce.” The words carry with them an enormous weight, with decades of mystery and lore surrounding the semi-secret blend that gets spread upon each Big Mac.

OK, so it’s pretty much Thousand Island dressing, but up until now, McDonald’s Special Sauce was not for sale (we’re not counting the black market). Now though, Mickey D’s has decided to pull back the curtain on its orangeish condiment, albeit on a limited scale and only in Australia, with the profits going to charity. And what profits they will be, as bottle #1 is being auctioned off on eBay and is already up to more than $18,000. Just 200 500ml bottles are being produced, but each of Australia’s 920 McDonald’s restaurants will also get 600 containers each to sell. Once they’re gone, that’s it. [Via | Purchase]
