McDonald’s reveals new Sweet & Spicy Jam Sauce and new Mambo Sauce as limited-time dipping sauces to be enjoyed with fries or Chicken McNuggets or drizzled onto the chain’s various menu items.
McDonald’s Sweet & Spicy Jam Sauce is the chain’s first breakfast-inspired dipping sauce in the US and features a jam-like red pepper sauce with a numbing Szechuan peppercorn kick, additional spicy heat from cayenne pepper, and an apple cider vinegar finish. The chain recommends trying the new sauce with a Sausage McMuffin with Egg, a Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit, Hash Browns, Chicken McNuggets, McCrispy, and/or French fries.
McDonald’s Mambo Sauce offers a tomato-based, sweet, spicy, and vinegary sauce. The sauce was inspired by the regional Washington, D.C. area staple (Mambo sauce is a regional sauce specific to the DC area that originally became popular in the 1950s as a staple at many take-out establishments, particularly at wing shops in historically Black neighborhoods, but eventually expanding to the mainstream). McDonald’s suggests enjoying it with a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Hash Browns, Chicken McNuggets, a McCrispy, and/or French fries.
