McDonald's Big Mac Sauce is a hit with fast food fans

A few years ago a limited edition bottle of the Big Mac burger sauce fetched a whopping £65,000 on eBay after a two-week bidding frenzy, raising money for charity in the process.

Speaking at the time a McDonald's spokesman confirmed: “The Big Mac burger sauce is so hard to get hold of.”

"The bottle will be delivered to its owner in a special collector’s box, with a voucher for a free burger. trying to confirm after a two-week bidding frenzy that the “incredible” winning offer was genuine."

For now burger fans can satisfy their cravings by taking advantage of McDonald's latest offers and freebies as part of the Appy Days promotion running throughout January.

Using the My McDonald’s app, customers can exclusively access new daily deals which have included 99p Big Macs, free hot drinks and free bacon rolls.

Customers can download the app for Apple or Android for free. 

The promotion has seen 24 deals rolled out over 23 days in a bid to cheer up Brits over the most miserable month of the year.
