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.
She exclaimed, “It’s f***ing apricot… it’s apricot,” in shock.
Hundreds of TikTok users posted their initial assumptions and shock about the apricot surprise in the comments area.
A commenter remarked: “I said mango SO confidently… I had no idea it was even a fruit.”
Another spectator responded, saying, “Honestly, I never even thought about it, I just ate it.
“Something told me to read the ingredients whilst eating my chippies and I was shoooooketh.”
Another comment read: “23 years of being my favourite sauce and I’ve never thought to read the ingredients.”
Somebody else joked: “So McDonald’s is giving one of your five-a-day?”
