Yes, you read correctly, McDonald’s is going from a strong like to a serious love factor, because in its Australia Day marketing stunt, they’re giving us the gift of the Big Mac sauce.
From Saturday, Mickey D’s will be selling 500ml bottles of Big Mac Special Sauce in 40 of its restaurants around the country.
But they’re only releasing 4000 bottles, and once they sell out (read: hella quickly), that’s all folks.
At the very least, no less than two stores in every state will stock the sauce, so that should make things interesting for the die-hard fans hanging to go and stock up.
Throwback to 2015, and we can recall a time when McDonald’s sent a limited number of Special Sauce bottles to members of the media.
“We had plenty of Aussies ask us where they could get bottles of our Special Sauce from, so we’re extremely excited to be able to again give Australians what they want,” senior marketing director Paul Tredinnick said.
“Australians can now use our iconic Big Mac Sauce wherever, whenever they want, and on everything from sausages to steak, or even a roast.
“Given how creative people got with the tubs of sauce last year, I can’t wait to see our customers’ Big Mac Sauce experiments.”
The bottles will set you back a measly $4.95. Worth. It
