    TIMESTAMPS:
    0:26 The Big Mac was invented by franchise owner, Jim Delligatti
    1:52 The ‘Special Sauce’ recipe has been changed multiple times
    3:13 It wasn’t always called the ‘Big Mac’
    4:38 Everyone knows the top-secret sauce recipe
    6:02 One man has eaten 30,000 Big Macs
    7:20 The Big Mac is no longer trademarked
    8:34 It inspired the ‘Big Mac Index’
    9:47 Big Macs aren’t the same everywhere
    11:12 McDonald’s wanted to pay rappers to say ‘Big Mac’
    12:37 80% of Millennials have never tried a Big Mac
    SUMMARIES:
    - You might think that the Big Mac was crafted by flavor scientists or CEOs, but it actually has much humbler beginnings in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. Jim Delligatti bought the Uniontown McDonald’s after meeting Ray Kroc, the owner of the McDonald’s company at the time, at a restaurant fair in 1955.
    - This Special Sauce is a staple of the Big Mac and has been kept top secret since its creation in the 1960s. Originally called ‘Secret Sauce’, this signature flavor combination has undergone multiple re-brands and redesigns before becoming the Special Sauce we all know and love now.
    - Nowadays, the Big Mac is a household name and has been an iconic member of the McDonald’s menu for over 50 years. When it was first released in 1968, the recipe was perfect, but the naming needed some work. The original names for this beautifully beefy burger were the ‘Aristocrat’ and the ‘Blue Ribbon Burger’.
    - For years, McDonald’s has marketed their Big Mac sauce as a secret recipe and has even sold bottles of the coveted Big Mac Sauce to hungry buyers. Amazingly, one bottle of Special Sauce sold for nearly $100,000 on eBay.
    - We all love McDonald’s, but this man has taken it to the extreme. Don Gorske is the Guinness World Record holder for Big Mac digestion for more than 15 years and has eaten Big Macs nearly every day since he first tasted one in 1972.
    - McDonald's recently went head-to-head with an Irish chain called ‘Supermac’s’ in a trademark dispute, where they lost the EU trademarking rights for the Big Mac. This is a big deal as McDonald's barely ever loses court cases, and this one meant that other fast-food joints can legally sell copy-cat Big Macs.
    - The Big Mac Index was invented by The Economist in 1986 as an easily-digestible (pardon the pun) guide to comparing economies. It is used to test the idea that exchange rates should line up in different countries so that the price of goods (or Big Macs) is the same.
    - Before you pack your bags to get the cheapest Big Mac you can find, bear in mind that the Big Mac changes its recipe depending on the country it is being sold in. One surprising tweak is that, in some places, the Big Mac doesn’t use beef.
    - Back in 2005, McDonald’s thought up a new and scandalous way to advertise their favorite burger to young people. The plan was to pay rappers up to $5 every time a song containing the words ‘Big Mac’ was played on air. Although they allowed the rappers to write the burger into the song in any way they wanted, McDonald’s had the final say over whether the lyrics were appropriate.
    - This one is shocking! According to the Wall Street Journal, only 1 in 5 people ages 18-34 have ever tried a Big Mac. Despite it being the second most popular item on the menu, it seems that young people just aren’t lovin’ it.

    Fun fact; Burger King had originally made copycat Big Mac's in 1999. There was called a Big King and used Thousand Island dressing as the sauce, and initially did not include the middle bun. It was only on the menu for a short amount of time, presumably because of a potential legal issue with marketing.

    Big Mac sauce is mayo, ketchup and a small dose of mustard. You can make it yourself. And it's not called a Big Mac in France because that translates as "Fat Pimp."

    I always ask for no big mac sauce on my big mac's. No pickles either! Feel free to donate to my bigmac fund for the needy.

  • Barry's 8 Track Repair Fone

    McDonald's has gotten way too big for their britches, attempting to trademark such generic phrases as "The Simpler, The Better". Always loved their food, but their business practices have made me much less of a customer over the years. For example: WHY won't my neighborhood McD accept credit and debit cards late at night? The only possible answer is to save money on labor cost. Given this fact, I should get a reduced price for reduced service and added inconvenience.

    I worked for MickeyD @ 1999-2002. in Germany. I remember there was a dressing for the Salad-Bowls called "Thousand-Island". For sure this! was the base of the Big-Mac Sauce. A little bit fluid pherhaps, and less pickles. Sadly it is out of order today...But this is/was the base of it.
    I tried many "things/combinations" before I made rest.
    My
    employer (Rest in Peace Mr. Hedwig) was an old stager at McD, and he quiet laughed about my experiences these memorable days,sigh. It is a lovely food and company.
