Just in time for barbecue season, McDonald’s Canada has announced that Big Mac, McChicken and Filet-O-Fish sauces will be available for purchase in grocery stores across the country this spring.
Also known as its “special sauce,” a version of the Big Mac spread was made available to home cooks four years ago when McDonald’s Canada released a YouTube video showing how to prepare it. But the fast food chain’s convenience mantra makes the release of the prepared and packaged sauces all the more appropriate.
“This is part of our continued commitment to giving Canadians more ways to enjoy McDonald’s,” Adam Grachnik, McDonald’s Canada spokesperson, said to Global News. “Judging by the response thus far, Canadians are very excited to hear this news!”
Indeed, Canadian Twitter users are bubbling with excitement over the announcement.

This announcement arrives just a few months after McDonald’s Canada announced that all-day breakfast would be available.
Although the fast food corporation hasn’t released a specific launch date for the sauces, Vancouver-based food and travel writer Diana Chan first spotted the sauces at yesterday’s Grocery and Specialty Food West Convention, and teased them in an Instagram post.
She later blogged that they’re being made in conjunction with Heinz and Kraft.
The only other information Grachnik could offer was “stay tuned!” And, presumably, stay hungry.
