McDonald’s Is Giving Out Free Bottles of Their Special Sauce

But these are the 10 secret recipes we really want

This Thursday, McDonald’s is giving away 10,000 bottles of Big Mac Special Sauce for free.

Want in? All you gotta do is download their new “Big Mac Special Sauce Finder” iMessage App and see if a store near you is carrying any of the limited edition 11.4 ounce bottles. Because with over 14,000 restaurants in the U.S. alone, not every Mickey D’s is getting tossed some sauce. For those not in the vicinity, there will also be giveaways on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Of course, ol’ McDonald isn’t doing this out of the kindness of his semi-clogged heart. The free sauce coincides with the release of two new Big Mac sizes — Mac Jr. and Grand Mac.

But you might be thinking, “The recipe has been out for years! Can’t I just make it at home?”

To that: have you ever actually made it at home? Because if you have, you’d be the first to admit that it’s never as good.

Even if an “executive chef” from McDonald’s takes you step-by-step through the process, it’s not the same.

So go out and grab a bottle. But if you’re stubborn as all nuggets and wanna go at it on your own, we won’t stop you. While you’re at it, go ahead and make a full feast out of the best secret brand name recipes out there:

  1. Big Mac with Special Sauce
  2. Coca-Cola
  3. KFC Original Recipe Fried Chicken
  4. Bush’s Baked Beans (ok fine, just get a can)
  5. Chartreuse
  6. In-N-Out Animal Style french fries
  7. Chipotle guacamole (and chips)
  8. Dr. Pepper
  9. Krispy Kreme doughnuts
  10.  Sweet Martha’s chocolate chip cookies

And remember, don’t get lost in the sauce.
