Taking to TikTok, with a video that has since clocked up more than 242,000 views and 13,000 likes, Evan-May asked her followers: "Am I the only one who didn't know what fruit it is made from until today?"
Evan-May recalled: "When I found out it was an apricot I was shaken to my core as didn’t even associate it with fruit. I’ve eaten sweet ’n’ sour sauce from McDonald's for years to go with my chippies, I’ve always loved it.
"About a week ago I won a free meal through Monopoly and while eating the sauce I just became curious about what it was actually made of."
The TikTok user then went on to reveal that the fruity ingredient was in fact apricot, not pineapple or mango as some had wrongly guessed, leaving many of her followers in a state of complete astonishment.
Evan-May added: "I assumed that everybody wouldn’t know as well, so had to share my discovery with my fellow McDonald’s lovers. Turns out everybody is as surprised as me, and I’ve even now found out the curry sauce uses apricot as well."

In the comments, one user wrote: "I was 100% convinced it was pineapple, maybe cos they put it in the little tubs when you get a Chinese".
Another reflected: "I said mango so confidently. I had no idea that it was even a fruit this is all. I eat and I would never think". [sic]
A third declared: "No wonder I don’t like it! Curry girl till I die."
Another said that apricot was confused as to how "the worst fruit to exist makes the tastiest sauce."
