Bo Sauce is back by popular demand

Remember the heartbreak of Bojangles removing their iconic Bo Sauce from the menu in 2022? You weren't alone.

Bojangles' fans weren't shy about their disappointment. One X user called its removal "the biggest crime of 2022 (#devastated)”, while another lamented, "Every day is dry without Bo Sauce."

After these and a flood of over 24,000 requests on social media, Bojangles officially brought Bo Sauce back to restaurant menus nationwide. It is now available in restaurants as a dipping sauce.

But the good news doesn't stop there. Bojangles is also launching a bottled version of Bo Sauce starting in April.

This means you can enjoy the delicious taste of Bojangles at home, without the drive-thru wait.

However, there's a small catch

For now, bottled Bo Sauce is only available starting in April in some grocery stores in the Southeast including Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Ingles, KJ’s, Lowes Foods, and Piggly Wiggly retailers.

Even if you can't find it on the shelves yet, you can still celebrate the return of this cult-favorite sauce at your local Bojangles restaurant.
