What's Really In Chick-Fil-A Sauce?
Chick-fil-A is one of the most profitable and fastest-growing restaurant chains in America, and its large variety of sauces is a key weapon in its culinary arsenal. Most of these have names that give you an idea of what's in store, but the tangy mustard-like flavor of its "Chick-fil-A" sauce leaves an air of mystery.
In 2012, Chick-fil-A finally tweeted out the secret to their secret sauce. It is made from a mixture of barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, and honey mustard, which all combine to give it the smoky, tangy, rich flavor that die-hard fans have come to love.
According to Chick-fil-A, the sauce was invented in the 1980s when a team member accidentally mixed the recipes for barbecue sauce and honey mustard sauce. Today, fans can’t get enough of the wildly popular sauce, with Chick-fil-A saying they shipped 500 million packets to restaurants in 2017 alone.
