Buffalo Wild Wings is putting its own spin on the pumpkin craze. The fast-food chain, which is known for its tasty chicken wings, recently debuted a new line of seasonal menu items that are peak fall.
While there are some pretty standard offerings such as a grilled steak and cheese sandwich and pork street tacos, the most polarizing new addition to the BWW family appears to be the BBQ pumpkin ale sauce, which is available as a wing topping.
Dubbed “fall’s favorite flavor” on the Buffalo Wild Wings website, this sauce consists of ale mixed with BBQ flavors and pumpkin spice for “a taste of the season.” Since pumpkin tends to be a divisive flavor (just look at how Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte is received each year) it’s not surprising that reactions to the gourd-flavored sauce have also be mixed.
One Twitter user remarked that although she would not be trying the BBQ pumpkin ale sauce, it is “better than when they tried to make ‘salted caramel’ wing sauce happen.” Added another: “Disrespecting bbq sauce like that is brutal.”
Check out some additional reactions below:
Seriously, @BWWings? Pumpkin BBQ sauce? This has gone too far.
