SAN FRANCISCO — To get you to come into McDonald’s and buy new versions of its Big Mac, the chain is giving away 10,000 bottles of its trademark special sauce for people to use at home.

The move is to celebrate the introduction of the Mac Jr. and the Grand Mac, two different-sized variations of the classic sandwich. The giveaway is a first in the United States.

McDonald’s introduced the Big Mac in 1968. In 1975, the special sauce got its own callout in the signature Big Mac commercial touting the burger’s components—“Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.”

The bottles will be available Thursday at participating locations. The locations closest to York Courty are 825 E. Fort Ave. in Baltimore, about 50 miles south, and two about 80 miles north, at 7379 West Branch Highway in Lewisburg and on Route 61 in Pottsville.

People also can win via social media on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Visit mcdonalds.com for details.
