Chick-fil-A is bringing the heat with new menu items

Is this Walmart dipping sauce a knockoff of Chick-fil-A’s signature one?

No Chick-fil-A meal is complete without one of its sauces, especially its signature one. You can only get it when you visit the fast food chain, but you may be able stock your kitchen with something similar thanks to Walmart.

The popular condiment is described by the eatery as a “classic dipping sauce with notes of honey mustard and a smoky tang.” The Great Value Restaurant Style Chicken Dipping Sauce, sold at Walmart, has a similar description. It's a “rich honey mustard sauce and a hint of BBQ smoke flavor,” according to the item information on the department store’s site. 

The label also reads, “great with nuggets!”

It’s about $2 for a 12-ounce bottle, and it’s apparently selling out fast. There were only four available online as of Thursday afternoon.

Today reporters, who gave it a try, said “it’s pretty close” to the real thing. And some Reddit users agree, according this thread

One user wrote, “Honestly couldn't have told the difference. And I'm a hardcore Chick-fil-A sauce person.” Another said, “It’s amazing.”

Willing to test it out? Grab one online before they’re all gone or stop by your local Walmart.
