While many people can sing the jingle or crave that dollop on the quick service burger, special sauce flavors are not limited to the drive thru. Even though one quick service restaurant might have put that condiment in packets for a short time, the flavor enjoyment does not have to be limited. With some other food ideas, summer is going to be all about the special sauce.

From summer holidays to barbecues, condiments spark a conversation. While some people cannot live without ketchup, others prefer a more flavorful option. From spice levels to consistency, the variety of sauce options could fill an entire table.

At the same time, the special sauce flavors have a particular slant. Although some people might never reveal their particular secret ingredient, Hellmann’s is more than happy to share their recipe. From burgers to chicken to maybe even a hot dog, it might be time to add this condiment to the recipe repertoire.

Hellmann’s Not So Secret Burger Sauce


  • ½ cup favorite Hellmann’s Mayonnaise (can include vegan)
  • 2 tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 ½ tbsp sweet relish
  • 2 tsp sweet onion
  • ½ tsp distilled white vinegar


  • Mix all ingredients together until well blended
  • Serve immediately or keep covered in the refrigerator
  • Enjoy for an UNLIMITED time

While that recipe is simple, some people would prefer to just open and go. In addition, why should those special sauce flavors be limited to just a sauce. Kettle Brand has just launched a new chip flavor that captures that iconic sauce flavor.

The new limited time offering, Kettle Brand Special Sauce Chips might not reveal their secret ingredient, but the flavor captures that classic taste in a crispy, crunchy bite. The slight sweetness with a touch of tanginess makes it hard to not finish an entire bag.

Since the Kettle Chips are crunchy, they absorb the bold flavor well. Without totally overshadowing the potato, the special sauce flavors are punchy. After one bite, some people might have wondered why special sauce isn’t drizzled over French Fries more often.

Thinking about these Kettle Brand Special Sauce Chips, it would be delicious served on top of a burger. In addition to the added crunch, it brings that special sauce flavor to each bite. For someone who likes that taste but does not want to drip sauce on their shirt, this idea is a big winner.

The Kettle Brand Special Sauce Chips are available now for a limited time, while supplies last. Check with retailers for availability and pricing.

Are you ready for the summer of sauce? It might be the special flavor to rediscover.
