We Tried Pink Sauce. Here’s What We Thought.

Remember Pink Sauce? In case you don’t, here’s a little recap.

Chef Pii exploded onto the TikTok scene and quickly became the self-proclaimed “pink sauce queen.” Pink Sauce was her very own creation that drew attention online for it’s bright pink color and the questionable way it was packaged and distributed. The product was initially sold without an accurate ingredient list or nutritional facts. Between the lack of approval from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, the inconsistency of the sauce’s signature color, and the fact that many people said their bottle of sauce was broken or spoiled by the time they received it, Chef Pii got an earful from the internet. For a while, it wasn’t clear what would become of the dragonfruit-based condiment.

Now, Pink Sauce is back and better (and at least safer) than ever. Chef Pii has gone legit by partnering with Dave’s Gourmet, which now manufactures and distributes her sauce. Now that it’s officially safe to consume, we had to get our hands on a bottle.

New Product!

Pink Sauce

I wanted to love Pink Sauce. I really did. And don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad. I just don’t understand it. It basically tastes like sweeter ranch dressing. Personally, I have never eaten ranch dressing and thought, “I wish this was sweeter!” Maybe you have, though. Additionally, the sauce we received isn’t really pink. It’s more of a pinkish beige, kind of like the yum yum sauce you get at a Japanese steakhouse. If the sauce’s claim to fame is that it’s pink, I want it to actually be pink!

I’m glad that Chef Pii is proud of her product, that it’s being made in a way that’s safe for consumers, and that it’s no longer $20. If you’re curious, buy a bottle! I’m happy I tried it, but I probably won’t be buying it again.
