Aldi’s New Dipping Sauces May Fulfill Your Chick-Fil-A Sauce Cravings

Chick-Fil-A is known for, among other things, its rainbow of famously delicious dipping sauces. Ever wondered if you can get your hands on these special sauces at places other than Chick-Fil-A? Well, two popular flavors of Chick-Fil-A brand sauces have been available in grocery stores all around the country for a few years: the signature Chick-Fil-A sauce (which is like mayo meets BBQ but yellow), and the Polynesian sauce (a sort of sweet and sour situation). But if these don’t ful-fill-A all of your Chick-Fil-A saucing needs, boy have I got some good news for you: Aldi, your favorite affordable grocery store and mine, has launched their own dupes of these two iconic sauces, and I am here for it. 

This is not Aldi’s first time selling their own versions of Chick-Fil-A-style dipping sauces.

A line of dipping sauces appeared for a limited time in Aldi a year ago under the brand name Burman’s that included Chick’n Dipp’n flavor (which for my money evokes Chick-fil-A’s famous “eat mor chikin” catchphrase), Polynesian Sauce, and Special Sauce (basically that mayochup all-purpose pink sauce we have come to love on burgers). The Special Sauce did not come back this year, but the aforementioned Chicken Dipping sauce and Polynesian sauce did! 

An Aldi fan posted about their new sauces on Instagram, asking followers: “How do they compare to the real deal?!” Reactions were somewhat mixed. One commenter wrote, “The Chick fil a sauce dupe was 🤢🤢🤢 all 3 of my kids who were unaware took one bite and said it was gross. Nowhere close to how CFA sauce tastes.” Another said the sauce was “disgusting.” But many others expressed their excitement at the products’ return, and one person said the Chicken Dipping flavor tasted “really good.” Whether or not these sauces live up to the OG’s, I respect Aldi’s hustle. So much so that I may just drive to the nearest Aldi 100 miles from my home (past like 50 Chick-Fil-A locations) and pick up a bottle or two just to try it for myself!

  • I took a chance on the Great Value Chick-Fil-A sauce and I was surprised. I haven’t had Chick-Fil-A in a very long time but the Walmart sauce tasted exactly like Chik-Fil-A sauce tasted and took me right back despite my failure to procure waffle fries.
