Chick-fil-A Is Bringing Back Its Original Barbecue Sauce

Back by popular customer demand

The chain introduced a Smokehouse Barbeque Sauce in July to the dismay of many who are loyal fans of Chick-fil-A’s original barbecue sauce.

The customers have spoken, and Chick-fil-A is giving them what they want by bringing back its original barbecue sauce.

The company swapped out its original sauce with a new Smokehouse Barbeque Sauce in July, and by mid-November, the new sauce will be replaced with the original. If you’re a fan of the new Smokehouse Barbeque Sauce, though, you might want to stock up.

“Change isn’t always easy. In fact, sometimes it can be downright difficult,” a release read. “When we introduced a new Smokehouse Barbeque Sauce in July, we thought we were serving up a bold new flavor you’d love. But your response was even bolder.”

Customers left comments, social media posts, and petitions to #BringBacktheBBQ, and now the chain has #BroughtBacktheBBQ and is asking its fans to share the new hashtag to spread the good news.
