The free bottles of the Special Sauce were due to be given away yesterday, ahead of the launch.

However, McDonald's tweeted that the bottles were stuck on a runway due to "adverse weather".

One fan said: "Making this sauce available as a dip is the best thing you've ever done!!!! This is the condement I've always wanted and needed in my life!!"

McDonald's said the tubs would have a shelf life of seven days.

A rep for the chain told The Sun: "A limited run of the pots will go on sale and is expected to quickly sell out, with restaurant staff prepped for bulk orders and big queues."

The rep added: "The 50ml pots will retail for 50p each, will be available 24 hours a day, have a seven-day shelf life and when they’re gone they’re gone."

The sauce is a mix of mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish and yellow mustard with vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika.

And it's fair to say that Special Sauce fans are pretty excited about dipping their chicken nuggets and fries into their very own pots of the stuff.

Others said it was "about time" that McDonald's sold the sauce in pots.

And you don't even have to leave the house to get your hands on the tubs, as the Special Sauce is also able to order it on Uber Eats.
