Well, well, well. What have we here? Honey Roasted BBQ Sauce is not a sauce from the Chick-fil-A line I had ever been aware of, and the minute I saw it was the only one that came in a tube, my gears started spinning.
On the website, it says that this sauce is designed specifically for the grilled chicken sandwich. Upon first taste, I had no idea what to say. To me, this sauce tastes almost exactly like Chick-fil-A Sauce in every way. I tasted them back to back, over and over again, and the only differences I could find are ones I probably made up. If there is any difference, this might be a touch smokier, while CFA sauce is a bit sweeter.
Chick-fil-A Sauce was created by Hugh Fleming in the 1980s, and according to somebody on Reddit, CFA sauce was “originally made by a store operator and sold at only his store, but he would not sell the right to the sauce to CFA, so they tried to make their own. Eventually they got the rights and now we have both sauces.”
In summation: I have no idea what’s real and what’s not. All I know is that this sauce is terrific and it gets docked a point for coming in a stupid little squeeze tube rather than a dipping sauce container.
