For years people have been wondering what on earth makes the McDonald's Big Mac sauce taste so damn good!

A variety of bloggers and food lovers have attempted to recreate the sauce in their own kitchens and whilst some have gotten pretty close, no one has been able to match it yet.

But that may just be about to change.


The Sun has reported that the REAL Big Mac sauce recipe has leaked online and it's... intense.

The sauce supposedly has over 30 ingredients, which is probably no one has been able to recreate it... because there's just SO MUCH STUFF in it.

According to the paper, the legendary sauce contains:

"Soybean Oil, Pickle Relish (Diced Pickles, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Sugar, Vinegar, Corn Syrup, Salt, Calcium Chloride, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Spice Extractives, Polysorbate 80), Distilled Vinegar, Water, Egg Yolks, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Onion Powder, Mustard Seed, Salt, Spices, Propylene Glycol Alginate, Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Mustard Bran, Sugar, Garlic Powder, Vegetable Protein (Hydrolyzed Corn, Soy and Wheat), Caramel Colour, Extractives of Paprika, Soy Lecithin, Turmeric (Colour), Calcium Disodium EDTA (Protect Flavour)."


Who would have thought this much stuff could be in that thin layer of sauce that you love so much?!

McDonald's haven't confirmed or denied that the recipe is real, but we honestly wouldn't be surprised if it WAS real.

Recreating the sauce at home seems pretty difficult now...
