For only $10,000, you could have a jug of 1992 McJordan BBQ sauce
Y’all know ’90s nostalgia is all the rage. And here is the special sauce of ’90s nostalgia: for only $10,000, a jug of McDonald’s limited edition McJordan BBQ sauce — named after Michael Jordan, like everything else in the 1990s. It comes complete with a 1992 expiration date.
This stuff was practically the only thing differentiating a Big Mac from a McJordan, which, according to the Daily Mail, was “a quarter-pound beef burger with onions, pickles, cheese and bacon and a special barbecue sauce made specifically for the McJordan.” But it’s basically your run-of-the-mill BBQ sauce (although who knows what’s lurking in that “spices and natural flavors” category?).
At least 41 people have actually bid for this thing. Given that it comes from McDonald’s and is therefore loaded with preservatives, it’s probably still somewhat edible, if you like fermented, $10,000 BBQ sauce on your fries.
