When Wendy’s announced its two new menu offerings, the Hot Honey Chicken Biscuit Breakfast Sandwich and the Hot Honey Chicken Sandwich, the excitement built for that first bite. While each new menu item will be bursting with flavor, there was another element in this announcement. That Wendy’s Hot Honey is a dipping sauce, and guests might want to get an extra packet.

According to Wendy’s, the Hot Honey will be available in packets, like its other sauces. Although each of the new Hot Chicken menu items will have copious amounts of the sauce, there are plenty of reasons to ask for another sauce for dipping.

Frosty and fries have long been a classic combination. That sweet and salty flavor pairing is one of the many reasons why Wendy’s is a favorite.

But, what about dipping those Hot & Crispy Fries in that hot honey? The combination of salty, spicy and sweet could be a new flavor combination that will have everyone talking. It is worth a try.

More importantly, drizzling that Hot Honey into a Frosty is a must. Since a Frosty is best enjoyed with a spoon, consider creating a honey swirl. That punch of sweet heat with the cool Frosty might be the best menu hack.

The addition of the Hot Honey shows that Wendy’s understands that its sauces expand the flavor possibilities. Just like the Ghost Pepper Ranch is delicious with fries, the sauces are not just limited to the sandwich. It allows guests to find creative food combinations that satisfy their own cravings.

Even though Wendy’s is a quick service restaurant, it thinks beyond the drive-thru. Each menu item is carefully crafted to take into consideration that fast food done right mantra. Whether it is the salads prepped every day or the dredging process for its crispy chicken, all those little extras come through in each bite.

After everyone gets a taste of the new Wendy’s Hot Honey, there will be only one more question on the table. Will those pickle chips be served as a side anytime soon?
