Mark Lollback, McDonald’s chief marketing officer for Australia, said: "Big Mac sauce is one of the most iconic McDonald’s ingredients and people often ask us where they can buy it, so we’re excited to be the first country in the world to offer tubes of Big Mac sauce to our customers."

On eBay, the listing reads: "For too long Big Mac Special Sauce has been trapped in a beautiful, delicious burger – now we’ve set it free!

"With 500ml to play with, you’ll have enough to impress your friends at dinner parties, cheat your way to cooking show fame, and get elected as prime minister!"
