I was excited to read, not too long ago, that Walmart was selling bottles of a concoction many people are saying tastes exactly like Chick-fil-A Sauce from the fast food chicken restaurant of the same name.


Personally, I find Chick-fil-A Sauce — which tastes kind of like a mixture of honey mustard, mayonnaise and barbecue sauce — hard to beat when it comes to chicken dipping, so I rushed out to find a bottle the first chance I had. I was shocked to see just how many options are now available on the condiment aisle. In addition to all manner of mustards, mayonnaises and ketchups — many of them infused with things like olive oil, sriracha or jalapenos — there was a new Heinz product called “Mayochup.” The label for that even shows a stream of mayonnaise and a stream of ketchup intertwining and mixing to create a pink sauce.


Initially had a hard time finding what I was looking for, as I knew it had a generic-sounding name. When I saw Great Value’s “Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce” with a picture of chicken strips and fries on the label, I assumed I’d hit pay dirt and snatched up the bottle to pay for and bring home. But when I got it home and tried it on some chicken, I didn’t find that it tasted much like Chick-fil-A Sauce at all.


So I went to Walmart’s website and quickly discovered Great Value has a different product, called “Restaurant Style Chicken Dipping Sauce,” that reviewers are saying is the one that tastes nearly identical to Chick-fil-A Sauce.


So far, I haven’t been able to find that sauce, and by that I mean that one previous trip I took to Walmart, but since I have a nearly full bottle of “Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce” to consume, it’ll probably be a while before I’m in need of a new condiment.
