McDonald’s Bringing Signature Sauces to Grocery Stores This Spring

McDonald’s Bringing Signature Sauces to Grocery Stores This Spring

By Simon Hung

The Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish and McChicken are three of McDonald’s most popular sandwiches and it’ll soon be easier for you to make your own versions at home, because the restaurant has announced plans to bring their signature sauces to Canadian grocery stores this spring!

Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish and McChicken sauces will be available at launch. (via Foodology.ca)

The restaurant has partnered with Kraft Heinz to bring three sauces to grocery store shelves later this year -- Big Mac Sandwich Sauce, Filet-O-Fish Tartar Sauce and McChicken Mayonnaise Style Sauce. They will come in 355mL bottles and according to a company rep, will taste identical to the sauces used in restaurants.

No additional information was given about specific release dates, but the company will be announcing further details in the coming weeks. However, it’s fair to speculate that the sauces will be available wherever you can find Heinz products and they do not appear to be a limited-run product.

Reactions ranged from 'excited' to 'weird-but-understandable' after the announcement.

Reception has been very positive since the announcement, with hundreds of responses on Twitter and Facebook praising the company for making what appears to be a very popular product -- anyone who has attempted to replicate the sauces at home will know that homemade versions just aren’t the same.

Let us know if you’re looking forward to making your own Big Macs at home and if you’ll be stocking up on these sauces once they’re in stores!

    • Holy desperation McDonalds. I guess kudos to them for trying to halt the downward skid they have been on the past few years by thinking outside the box.

    • Mmm. Big Mac sauce. I will be trying this. Probably good to put on fish, too.

      They should think farther out and do packages of frozen McChicken patties and McNuggets, too.

      Yea, but are you really going to make a batch as big as they're offering in the bottle? Will it stay as 'fresh'? I mean alot of times, people are drunk eating certain foods. They want it asap in a bottle.

      On another note.. why? why now?!! This should have came out many many years ago. Getting older now, I can't just eat what I want. How great this would have been during my high school years.

      Sometimes you just want the real thing, and the copycat recipes are never quite right lol. I would be curious enough to at least try them.

    • This is great - we can order mcdouble and pay only for the lettuce, then take out a bottle of big mac sauce and pour it onto the burger in front of the employees. Imagine the savings!

    • President's choice already had something like this in Loblaws, and possibly No frills stores.
      It was just a matter of time before the real thing became available.

      I'm not entirely sure. I have not actually tried it. Looks like PC meant well in trying, at least.
      At one point they even sold buns with a middle bun to make a simulated big mac, but I'm not sure if they still do...

      None of those are exactly right.

      Even this won't be exactly right.
      I'm sure it'd pass but it's still not right.

      Every time I go to McDonalds when I have a bit of time to kill, I take a look through their entire kiosk.
      It's actually amazing what they have in there that you can order and/or customize.

    • These are by Kraft/Heinz. Kraft has a tartar sauce in the same bottle except the cap is blue. They also have Sandwich Spread which was the original Big Mac sauce imitator.

    • I really like their tartar sauce, especially for the fries, so this is great news to me.

      That's also wrong.
      Fruit doesn't need mayo.

      Also I just threw up a little.

    • mayo and shrimp also goes well together. Once I get some free big mac sauce i'll have to see if it is even better with shrimp!

      I know what you're talking about.
      It's actually a thing.
      Actually I'm not sure if it's a Chinese thing because I'm fairly certain that gwai los have it too.
      I vaguely remember marshmallows in it too.

    • Are these sauces already on the shelves? I'm asking because Spring has already arrived and I haven't seen them in stores and there was no mention which stores will carry them, very limited information to say the least. Do I need to contact McDonald's?
