Chick-fil-A customers are claiming the Polynesian sauces are opening up randomly of their own volition. In a recent Reddit post, a customer with the user name ShanNtrav alleged their Polynesian sauce “opens up and gets everywhere” after “a month or 2” of having it. And, apparently the user, who keeps “a zip lock bag of fast food sauces” is not alone in either their keeping of the sauce – which Chick-fil-A has shared is one of their most popular sauces along with their signature sauce – nor the explosion of it. “They just easily explode. Not sure why,” one person sympathized. “I’ve even had times when working and stocking the poly sauce i’ve found it randomly exploded in boxes…. i guess that’s just how it is,” an alleged Chick-fil-A employee shared.
The Redditors are not the only ones to notice the Polynesian sauce phenomenon. This issue has reportedly been going on for years, with tweets calling it out going back to 2016. No one has found a reason behind the explosive condiment. The Redditor posed the possibility of it being “something acidic in the sauce that eats through the packaging.”
