Being a food blogger, I occasionally get items from various companies promoting their latest offerings. Today I got one from the folks at McDonald's of Southern California. However, they delivered it to the old Sun building in north San Bernardino. Kudos to the folks at the San Bernardino City Unified School District for tracking me down and keeping my special delivery safe! If you want your own bottle, be sure to follow @mcdonalds_socal for info where to get yours on Thursday. The announcement will be made tomorrow.
In celebration of the launch of two new variations of its iconic Big Mac hamburger, McDonald’s will give away 10,000 bottles of Big Mac Special Sauce today (January 26).
Here in Southern California, 300 bottles will be given away from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. (or until supplies last) at the McDonald’s at 201 W. Washington Blvd. in Los Angeles.
In addition, the first 100 fans will receive a free Big Mac of their choice.
It’s the first time the sauce has been made available in quantity to the public here in the U.S. However, the chain previously gave away dipping cups of the sauce and sold bottles of it in Australia.
Bottle #1 was given to the family of Michael James “Jim” Delligatti, a McDonald’s franchisee from Pennsylvania who introduced the Big Mac in 1967. He died in November of last year, a few weeks after the new variations were announced.
The fast food chain recently launched the limited-time Grand Mac — larger than the original, with a third pound of beef — and Mac Jr. — a single-deck version of the Grand Mac.
