7 Wendy’s Dipping Sauces to add Some sizzle to your meals – 2023

Wendy’s sauces are perfect for dipping, dousing, drizzling, and dunking. Sauces allow you to add “something extraordinary” to your meal and can even make it more personalized.

Do you want to add a little more heat to your chicken sandwich or spicy nuggets? Put them in Wendy’s Queen of Spice’s Creamy Wendy’s sauce for an added boost. Buttermilk Ranch will do the trick if you are trying to turn down the heat.

At present, Wendy’s currently has six deliciously different dip sauces to choose from. The names of all six sauces are:

  • Creamy Sriracha
  • Buttermilk Ranch
  • Barbecue
  • Sweet & Sour
  • Side of S’Awesome
  • Honey Mustard

I will share my personal experiences in this blog. Let’s discuss all these Wendy’s sauces one by one.

1. Creamy Sriracha

In spite of its heat, this sauce contains a lot of flavours and is one of the best that I have tried. With a tangy vinegar taste and a smooth, creamy texture, it’s spiced and has a long finish. The taste is pretty good-although after doing my taste test 20 minutes later, there was still a burning sensation in my mouth.

2. Buttermilk Ranch

Buttermilk Ranch can be an incredible dip sauce for a chicken nugget. But it was poorly cooked, it’s just acceptable. Although it hits the front with a potent mix of garlic and herbs, there’s just something wrong with them. Those tastes soon disappear to something bland and milky, and I found the sauce to be pretty tasty compared to the nugget’s saltiness. I didn’t dare to go in after a few bites for more of it.

3. Barbecue

I notice that Barbecue always leads the dip sauce lists because it’s reasonably reliable across various fast food restaurants. Though they’re not always tasted the same (or similar), they usually are boldly flavored, giving an excellent pick to every nugget. Wendy isn’t any different. It’s super smoky and sweet, and it brings right, tasty notes to every bite. It might also give all the other fast food BBQ sauces a run for their money.

4. Sweet & Sour

Wendy’s Sweet & Sour sauce was bizarrely transparent and bright orange in color, making it look like an orange jelly rather than a dipping sauce at first sight. I considered it thicker than the rest of them, and the taste was sweeter than bitter. It tasted pineapple and nothing else, making me wish there was anything else mixed up to add more complexity and tang. It wasn’t offensive, but it was far from my favorite one.

5. Side of S’Awesome

For whatever reason, in recent years, fast-food restaurants (including KFC, McDonald’s, and Burger King) have added Thousand Island-like dip sauces to their menus to varying degrees of popularity. Wendy’s Side of S’Awesome is the newest I’ve found, and it’s all right, but it’s not unique. This tangy sauce tastes delicious, reminding me a little bit of a tasty tartar sauce. As much as I like tartar, I don’t think chicken is the best thing to do.

6. Honey Mustard

Wendy’s Honey Mustard isn’t a game-changer, but it’s excellent. A nice balance exists between the sweet flavor of honey and the spicy flavour of mustard, creating a dish that is soothing and complements the salt in the nuggets well.

S’Awesome sauce is made up of ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, honey mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.
