McDonald’s Customers Are Shocked After Realizing What Sweet ‘N’ Sour Sauce Is Made From

In a TikTok video, fans were shocked to learn that McDonald’s Sweet ‘n’ Sour sauce has an apricot taste. Some people were upset, but McDonald’s Australia recommended that for a fun change, try Soft Serve with the sauce. Almost certainly, if you go to McDonald’s, you have a go-to dish or favorite meal. But when some huge fast food chain fans found out what goes into the Sweet ‘n’ Sour sauce, they had their favorite order ruined.

Most likely, you don’t even know what’s in the food you eat every day because we’re not living in a world of lone hunters and gatherers anymore. When McDonald’s fans found out that a certain fruit is used in their Sweet ‘n’ Sour sauce, they were shocked.

The video has been found again on TikTok. It shows radio DJs in Melbourne, Australia, telling their fans the shocking news. While her co-host was having the perfect combination of McNuggets and Sweet ‘n’ Sour sauce, co-host Lauren Phillips excitedly told her what was inside, which made her co-host’s day.

When Lauren brought in the McDonald’s order, her co-host Jason Hawkins said, “Today was a good day.” She told him, “Jason, you need to get into those nuggets and get into some of your favorite sauce.” Jason quickly finished his order by putting sauce on his chicken nuggets. He couldn’t wait to eat.

Apricot in Sweet & Sour Sauce?

“Would you believe it tastes like apricot?” Lauren also said. Jason stopped in the middle of his step and threw out his mostly eaten nugget, saying he “hates apricots.” He looked sad. He went on to say that he could even taste the apricot now that he knew there was fruit in the sauce.

After that, Lauren kept making jokes about how she messed up his favorite order, and a lot of TikTok users agreed with her. Someone who was upset said, “You ruined my favorite sauce.” “It really does taste like apricot now that I’ve heard that.” “But Big Mac sauce and nuggets are the best,” said someone else.

“The same thing happens to my husband; he hates Apricot.” Also hates peach chicken the most. “That was funny! I can’t wait to tell him.” A number of people made it clear that this peach ingredient might not always be in other sweet and sour sauces. Fans were shocked when the official McDonald’s Australia TikTok account talked to them.

“Listen to me, dip your soft serve in sweet and sour sauce,” the account said. Some people were cocky and asked how other McDonald’s fans could not have known about the drug. Someone asked, “How do people not know this?” “Sweet n Sour is basically lemon juice and apricot jam,” said someone else.

Caramel color, cellulose gum, salt, xanthan gum, peach puree, dried chili powder, paprika extractives, and onion powder are some of the other things that go into Sweet ‘n Sour sauce.
