Chick-fil-A brings back classic BBQ sauce after social media scorn

ATLANTA (WTVM) - Chick-fil-A heard you loud and clear, BBQ sauce fans.

After trying to change what fans called a lesser, smokehouse version of the previous product, the fast food chain announced on Tuesday that it was bringing back their popular BBQ dipping sauce.

"Change isn't always easy. In fact, sometimes it can be downright difficult," the chain said in a press release.

The change came in July when the chain rolled out a new breakfast sandwich, various menu items, and additional sauces. The backlash was immediate for the BBQ switcheroo. Fans took to social media, proclaiming that Chick-fil-A #BringBackTheSauce.

Don't worry, saucy fanboys and fangirls - it's back. You won't have to buy your stash on eBay. A portion of the statement says:

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.

The sauce will return to locations nationwide in mid-November.
