If there’s one thing that makes the chicken nuggets from Chick-fil-A taste even better, it’s pairing them with your favorite dipping sauce.
The fast-food restaurant offers more than a handful of choices and everyone seems to have a personal favorite!
Best and worst Chick-fil-A sauces
Remember when social media had a fit after Chick-fil-A replaced its original barbecue sauce last year with a new version? That didn’t last long!
There was even an online petition, which led the chain to bring the original sauce back in a matter of months.
Just recently, Kate Taylor from Business Insider tried all seven of the chicken restaurant’s sauces and ranked them from best to worst. Here are her results:
1. Chick-fil-A Sauce
Chick-fil-A says: “Our classic dipping sauce with notes of honey mustard and a smoky tang.”
Business Insider says: “It’s the perfect accompaniment to anything on the Chick-fil-A menu.”
2. Honey Mustard Sauce
Chick-fil-A says: “A savory sauce with the robust flavor of mustard and spices combined with the sweetness of honey.”
Business Insider says: “I would literally eat the honey mustard sauce with a spoon.”
3. BBQ Sauce
Chick-fil-A says: “Our classic barbeque sauce, seasoned with spices, onion and garlic for a rich and bold flavor.”
Business Insider says: “If you’re craving BBQ, it hits the spot, and the chain would be worse without it.”
4. Zesty Buffalo Sauce
Chick-fil-A says: “A flavorful hot sauce with a smooth, bold flavor.”
Business Insider says: “While Chick-fil-A’s take is a bit thinner and more watery than I would prefer, the flavor is spot on.”
5. Polynesian Sauce
Chick-fil-A says: “A delicious sweet and sour sauce with a strong, tangy flavor.”
Business Insider says: “Chick-fil-A Polynesian sauce is famous — but I don’t think it’s actually very good.”
6. Sriracha Sauce
Chick-fil-A says: “A sweet and tangy sauce made with chili peppers for a spicy twist.”
Business Insider says: “The Sweet & Spicy Sriracha tastes like someone mixed Polynesian sauce with sriracha.”
7. Garlic & Herb Ranch Sauce
Chick-fil-A says: “A creamy buttermilk ranch sauce with savory garlic, onion and herb flavors.”
Business Insider says: “If you’re a ranch fanatic, my advice is to bring your own Hidden Valley.”
