PSA: Chick-fil-A Will Start Selling Their Own Sauces Soon
Make that sauce packet stash a thing of the past.
While Chick-fil-A’s past stances on certain issues has presented challenges for the ethical fast food consumer over the years, the quality of its offering has never been the issue. The Atlanta-based chicken chain is wildly popular with consumers (especially the youths), to the point that some will buy a plane ticket just to get their hands on some sandwiches and nuggets.
In a bit of very welcome news for those who constantly ask for as many sauce packets as they can get, it looks like Chick-fil-A will soon be selling some of its signature sauces in grocery stores. Starting in April, Target, Walmart, Winn-Dixie and Publix locations in Florida will begin offering 16-ounce bottles of Polynesian and Chick-fil-A sauce for just $3.49 each.
While other people with incorrect opinions would tell you that those are the worst two sauces that Chick-fil-A offers, Chick-fil-A sauce really ranks among the best dipping options. It’s like a honey mustard, but with a slightly tangy and smoky kick. Meanwhile, Polynesian sauce is Chick-fil-A’s take on a sweet and sour sauce. That’s about all I can say about it given that Chick-fil-A sauce is 100 percent the way to go here.
In case you were on the fence about stocking up on a big bottle of Chick-fil-A sauce, it’s worth noting that doing so will support a decent cause. All of the retail sale proceeds from both sauces will go to Chick-fil-A’s scholarship program, which helps company employees finance their college education.
Beyond helping to make the dream of a college education more attainable for its service industry workers, the goal of the Chick-fil-A sauce is to give the company a bigger retail footprint while also giving its customers more ways to enjoy what they have to offer. According to Forbes, Chick-fil-A hopes that Florida customers will also be able to buy a bottle of Chick-fil-A or Polynesian sauce through the Chick-fil-A app, picking it up along with their sandwiches, nuggets, and fries from any one of the state’s 200-plus locations.
Hopefully that sort of dream scenario will expand to Chick-fil-A locations nationwide, preventing us from having to fret over whether we have enough sauce ever again. What a wonderful world that would be.
