    Only a limited time? I remember that awesome plum sauce that came out when Mulan was released. It was gone not long after. It was really good!

    I also noticed the reluctance to put Thai in the name…what’s up with that?

  2. Adam Bomb says:

    How do you figure that they were reluctant to include the word “Thai” in the name?

    • Ryan says:

      @ Adam Bomb … Good question. Does Vancouver have a big Thai population?

      • Justin says:

        The name is Thai Sweet Chili sauce. Google it. That’s where it’s from.

        • Ryan says:

          @ Justin … Yeah Adam Bomb and I are both aware that it’s Thai Sweet Chili sauce. Just wondering why they just went with the name “Sweet Chili” sauce and left out the Thai.

          • Adam Bomb says:

            I would guess that maybe their marketing department was wary of including the word “Thai” on the packaging and advertising for fear of turning off a lot of customers. I’d imagine there are a lot of people out there that would turn their nose up at something “exotic” that they’re not familiar with. Just a guess, though.

          • Ryan says:

            @ Adam Bomb … Agreed!

      • Raiders757 says:

        I don’t know about Thai, but Vancouver does have one of the larger Chinese populations outside of China. I think it may be third behind San Francisco and New York. I’m not 100% positive though.

    Will be trying these this week. Love McNuggets!

    I have a bottle of the stuff in the fridge.

    • Justin says:

      I can’t really find McDonald’s Sweet and Sour sauce in the stores, and it sucks. The Thai Sweet Chili sauce can be though. The McDonald’s sauce might be different. I’m excited to try it. I’ll do so on break from work tomorrow!

  5. Justin says:

    I just tried some today and realized why it wasn’t called SPICY sweet chili. That’s unfortunate…still pretty damn good though!

    I wish they would come out with a Buffalo Wing dipping sauce.

  7. Helldog says:

    Mulan sauce was awesome! That takes me back a few 10 pieces.

    Raiders757 – they have a buffalo sauce. It is designed to be served with the Chicken Selects, but they’ll give me one for McNuggets if I ask.

    I live in Vancouver, and funny enough, we don’t have this sauce. We have 2 other new sauces: zesty mango (which tastes like curry) and spicy szechuan (which tastes like a peanut sauce).

    • Justin says:

      I think they got it from the British McDonald’s. I was creeping on their site a few months ago and I saw it there.

      I put some of the sauce on my wrap and it was amazing.

  9. Tim says:

    Tried it this evening. Taste is almost indiscernible from the Wendy’s sweet and sour sauce used on the boneless wings, albeit a bit thicker. Not bad, something different.

    I may be showing my age here, but does anyone remember when they ran a promotion of oriental sauces for the McNuggets? They gave you chop sticks and the cashiers wore those Chinese bamboo hats. That was back in the good ol’ days.

  11. Raiders757 says:

    I may be showing my age here, but does anyone remember the Shanghai McNugget promotion in the 80’s?

    I remember the cashiers all wearing Chinese bamboo hats. I forgot all about the McFortune Cookie.

    I havent tried the chilli sauce yet, and to be honest, i dont think i will.

    One thing i did want to note though; Mcdonalds’ “hot mustard” sauce is amazing. Im a huge ranch and honey mustard guy, but when it comes to McDs, the only choice is hot mustard.

    None of the other big chains seem to carry a sauce like this, and McDs has had it forever.

    One love

    Yep- we are mad for this in the uk. Sweet chilli sauce with everything! KFC used to a box of nuggets mixed up with sticky, sweet chilli sauce.
    I mourn it still…

    • Bhrei says:

      Yeah… I fell in love with this stuff when I was in the UK… Glad to see it coming across the pond but sad that it is only for a limited time… Guess I’ll have to always ask for extra and stock up on the stuff… 🙂

      Cheers!

  14. AK says:

    Had it yesterday – it’s like sweet and sour sauce on crack. One of my favorite fast food sauces currently.

  15. Ryan says:

    Tried this sauce yesterday. Tasted like spicy version of a store-bought sweet and sour sauce that I can’t recall the name of. It was decent.

  16. NoSauce4u says:

    Not available at my local McDonald’s… Half of the time they don’t know what I’m talking about, the rest of the time they think I mean the Chipotle sauce for the chicken selects.

  17. Ray says:

    Where can I get my hands on the McDonalds Sweet Chilli Sauce? As in the exact same one 😀
    Brand name, label name and store name would be much appreciated!
    (I’m from the UK)

    Combining the New Ranch and Tangy Barbeque sauce makes a magnificent super sauce. Rich, creamy, tangy, these sauces are much tastier than the regular ones.
