File under "Mac Sauce in my bag, SWAG." Tomorrow, burger fans who want to feel special all the time, not just at the McD's counter, can score the magic nectar of specialness: a free limited-edition bottle of McDonald's super-secret Big Mac Special Sauce*.
Starting at 11 a.m. tomorrow (Thursday, Jan. 26), an undisclosed number of bottles will be given away at the McDonald’s at 224 E. Altamonte Drive (aka State Highway 436) in Altamonte Springs. This is the only official location for locals to get in on the sauce giveaways. Only 10,000 bottles are available nationwide.
No purchase is necessary, but Mac-Sauce-wanters must say the words “There’s a Big Mac for that.”
The giveaway spotlights McDonald's new Mac Jr. (smaller!) and Grand Mac (bigger!) versions of the Big Mac. These twists on the sandwich that famously consists of 🎶 two-all-beef-patties-special-sauce-lettuce-cheese-pickles-onions-on-a-sesame-seed-bun 🎶 will be available through March 20.
* McDonald's spokeswoman Becca Hary says in an email, "The Big Mac Sauce is unique to McDonald’s and includes a classic combination of ingredients. The Big Mac Sauce remains timeless and customers around the world continue to enjoy its signature taste,” although we can't be sure Hary is a human person and not a robot based on that statement. (Also: The Big Mac Sauce? It's Thousand Island dressing.)
