McDonald's recently turned up the heat in its restaurants with the addition of the Sriracha Big Mac sauce. While many fast food restaurants have incorporated the popular Asian condiment into their menu, McDonald's has been reluctant to follow suit. Now the chain is embracing the spicy sauce as a way of giving customers more gourmet condiment options.
The new Sriracha Big Mac sauce is being added to McDonald's Signature Crafted sandwich menu at locations in Los Angeles and San Diego. The new spicy sauce is served on a sandwich featuring white cheddar cheese, tomatoes, crispy onions, spinach and baby kale. Customers can then customize the sandwich with their choice of meat and bun.
While only available for a limited time, the new sauce option demonstrates McDonald's willingness to experiment with classic ingredients such as its Big Mac Sauce.
