The Chick-Fil-A-Inspired Aldi Sauces Are Back And Instagram Is Divided

Chick-fil-A may be best known for its chicken, but its dipping sauces are just as popular. After all, what is a chicken tender without sauce to dunk it in? The brand's sauces have become so popular that Chick-fil-A recently released their more popular flavors in stores, including its signature and Polynesian flavors. And while many aren't sure exactly what ingredients the company's signature sauce holds, it doesn't stop copycats from turning up.

Walmart created a copycat version that people claim is incredibly close to Chick-fil-A's, so much so that a blind taster could barely tell the difference. And, jumping in on the trend of hacks, a TikTok user's video claims they were able to recreate the sauce themselves by combining three other sauces together. Even Aldi once tried to get in on the Chick-fil-A sauce action by releasing a slew of sauces inspired by the chicken chain, though none were deemed perfect replications. Despite that, it seems the sauces enticed customers enough during their limited run to warrant a resurgent moment.

Not all of Instagram is impressed with the Aldi sauces

When Aldi first released its Chick-fil-A copycat sauces back in the summer of 2021, the fanfare was plentiful. As Today reported of the initial launch, Aldi came out with their own rendition of three of Chick-fil-A's most popular flavors, including a special sauce, Polynesian sauce, and chick'n dipp'n sauce. @TheAmazingAldi posted about the limited products when they were first released and commenters flocked to the post with general excitement and admiration for the product, with many noting how they "Can't wait to find" it.

And now that it's back on shelves, @adventuresinaldi wants to make sure people don't miss it. The account posted a picture of the returned limited-time sauces with a caption asking followers "If you haven't picked up the dupe chick fil a sauces, what are you even doing?!?" and then posed the question of whether they felt it held up to the real thing. While some were less than enthused about the flavor, calling it "disgusting" and even posting the vomit face emoji, others reacted with genuine excitement over the return. Aldi fans commented with the likes of how "excited" they are to see the product on shelves and one claimed, "The chicken dippin sauce taste really good."

If you aren't a fan of these Aldi items, you can always try your own copy-cat Chick-fil-A sauce at home.
