Is this Coles' strangest launch yet? Supermarket releases bizarre new item

Is this Coles' strangest launch yet? Supermarket releases bizarre new item

If you don’t remember, last year the internet went wild for a $3 Coles product that tasted “exactly the same” as the wildly popular McDonald’s Big Mac burger sauce.

This time, Coles has stocked their shelves with two new additions to the monumentally successful 2017 Special Burger Sauce – exclusive condiments made to accompany nuggets.

Coles has announced two Special Nugget Sauces, developed by chefs who have tasted “thousands of sauces around the world.”

The new release, which measures at 375 ml per bottle will cost you $2.75 each and might just be the sauce you didn’t realise you needed to eat with your McDonald's nuggets.

One “nugg” sauce is the spicy ketchup nugget sauce which has proven to be a popular dipping sauce in Germany – except theirs is called Currygewürzketchup.

One shopper who got his hands on the sauce last week said it was “better than Mickey D’s just my personal opinion,” as reported by news.com.au.

Sweet Mustard nugget sauce is the second condiment customers will have the opportunity to pick up. The Carolina BBQ inspired sauce is filled with “sweet, tangy, mustardy goodness.”

A spokesperson said Australians have a real love for chicken nuggets – meaning this launch might just be the best thing for customers.

“That’s why our chefs have been tasting thousands of sauces from around the world to develop two sauces that we know people will love,” the spokeswoman told news.com.au.
