She said: “Sweet ‘n’ Sour sauce, McDonald’s – am I the only one who didn’t know what fruit it’s made of?

“Have a guess…”

The obvious choice would be either pineapple, which is frequently used in sweet-and-sour dishes, or mango, which is frequently used in chutney.

As Evan-May explains, these answers would be wrong, as the Sweet ‘n’ Sour ingredient is in fact… apricot.
