Why This Bottle of Big Mac Sauce Sold For Almost $100,000


A few weeks ago, we wrote that McDonald's was selling its famous Big Mac Sauce by the bottle in Australia. While those bottles ran for about a $5 a pop, halfway across the world another bottle sold for nearly $100,000.

What's special about THIS bottle of Mac Sauce is that it was the first-ever bottle of sauce in the UK, Grub Street reports. McDonald's created an eBay listing a couple weeks ago auctioning off the bottle of sauce to the public.

The opening bid was £3 ($4.34 US) which quickly snowballed. Seven days later, the final bid ended at £65,900 which is almost $96,000.

For a bottle of Mac Sauce.

McDonald's plans to use the money they made from the auction for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Perhaps the winner really just wanted to give money to charity. Otherwise they could've saved a TON bidding on some of the $5 bottles Australia was selling.
