McDonald's returns dipping sauce to menu

If people have launched a change.org petition to bring back a menu item, you know it must be seriously beloved.

Anthony Vallelonga was so enamoured with McDonald's Sweet Mustard Dipping Sauce that he launched a petition almost a year ago to get the fast food eatery to bring the condiment back.

"Sweet mustard sauce is a necessity for 6 pack of chicken nuggets," he wrote, in his empassioned plea online.

"McDonald's Australia need to bring back the sweet elixir of mustard sauce. Future generations will never understand the beauty of sweet mustard sauce and live life never knowing it's (sic) greatness.

"If we want our kids to live happy and prosperous lives. They need sweet mustard sauce."

The petition got 635 supporters.

There was also a Facebook fan page dedicated to the cause.

In an open letter to the corporation on that page, the administrator suggested there was some kind of hostage situation with the recipe:

"If you are not going to bring back the sweet mustard sauce, why not release the recipe to us then?" the poster raged.

"Look at all these disappointed customers. How could it cost you that much just to keep sweet mustard sauce in stock . Why can't you just bring it back ?! Or release the recipe!"

Well, the prayers of these nugget-lovin' Australians were answered yesterday when it was announced that McDonald's would bring back the lurid yellow condiment permanently.
