The Chick-Fil-A Buffalo Sauce That's Turning Stomachs On Reddit

While they're not open on Sundays, Chick-fil-A makes up for lost time with its crave-worthy menu. From chicken sandwiches to grilled chicken strips and Cobb salads, the fried chicken franchise is one of America's favorite fast food joints, with a customer satisfaction score of 83 out of 100 (per QSR).

Not only do they make great chicken served fast and friendly, but Chick-fil-A also boasts a wide range of condiments and dipping sauces designed to pair perfectly with the comforts of fried chicken. Their sauces are so popular, they even sell some of them in participating grocery stores across the country (per Chick-fil-A).

Although their best-selling sauce across the nation is by and large their house-made Chick-fil-A sauce (per Chick-fil-A), the chain also offers ranch, Polynesian sauce, honey mustard, barbecue sauce, and zesty buffalo sauce. With such a high customer service satisfaction rating, it's not common to hear many complaints about their ingredients. However, one user on Reddit is disturbed by the complexion of their Chick-fil-A buffalo sauce which appears to have an unusual consistency and color.

The buffalo sauce's strange complexion might result from ingredient separation

Posted in r/ChickFilA, the concerned customer shared a photo of two buffalo sauce packets — one unremarkable in appearance, another shrouded in mystery. The sauce in question looks creamier and lighter in color than the standard buffalo sauce Chick-fil-A typically sells. The customer captioned the photo "what's wrong with the bottom buffalo sauce? looks like it was mixed with something else."

While some Reddit users were equally confused about the looks of the sauce, the thread's top comment reads "most likely it's just separated, buffalo at its core is just butter and hot sauce so the dots are likely just butter." Another person followed up this sentiment with a simple "looks like it separated." A former Chick-fil-A employee commented on the thread assuring the customer that they were correct that their buffalo sauce definitely shouldn't look that way.

Seeing that the case wasn't formally solved, you might want to check the color of your sauce packets before driving out of the Chick-fil-A drive-thru.
