Trader Joe’s New Sauce Is Based on a Fast-Food Favorite

Between its wine bottle succulents and fan-favorite chicken, Trader Joe’s has no shortage of must-purchase items. Now, it’s adding a new one.

Trader Joe’s new Incredisauce is available in stores now, and allegedly, it’s a dupe for Chick-fil-A sauce.

The new condiment began gaining traction on social media thanks to a Reddit post that showcased the comic book-themed marketing which features a hand holding up a chicken nugget dipped in the sauce. Below the illustration, the bottle describes the new sauce as a “sweet, tangy, smoky flavored dipping sauce.” Sounds familiar, right?

In follow-up comments, some weighed in on the flavor, and yes, they did say it tastes like Chick-fil-A’s titular sauce. However, there are subtle differences. One person explained that it was slightly less sweet with a bit more smokiness. Others asked for a comparison to Trader Joe’s other copycat sauce—Magnifisauce—and it turns out that the original is more of a McDonald’s Big Mac sauce dupe.

If you head into your local Trader Joe’s and can’t find the sauce, don’t worry. You can always purchase the real Chick-fil-A sauce at mass-market retailers like Target and on Amazon. As it turns out, though, you can also DIY your own Chick-fil-A sauce with ingredients you likely already have in your pantry.

If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect sauce for the next time you grill up some chicken, Trader Joe’s might have you covered.
