Does Chick-fil-A need a cheese dipping sauce?

Chick-fil-A's cheese dip first appeared on select menus in 2012, only to disappear shortly thereafter. Whatever drawing board the Chick-fil-A geniuses went back to seems to a magical one, because after rolling out the dip to 436 locations in early 2019, customers are coming away obsessed with the new dip. 

According to Delish, the cheese dip is a blend of Swiss and Parmesan cheeses and comes in a three-ounce serving in a warm dipping dish. BuzzFeed's Jon-Michael Poff and Andrew Ziegler took it upon themselves to give the dip a try and came away amazed:

Andrew's thoughts: The cheese sauce tastes really good — better than Chick-fil-A Sauce in my opinion...It's basically a queso without any spice, and if you're like me (obsessed with queso) you can dip just about anything on the menu in this sauce.
Jon-Michael's thoughts: By almost every measure, the new sauce is near-perfect. Unlike so many other cheese sauces out there, Chick-fil-A's tastes and looks like real cheese (because it is!)...And like Andrew said, its dippable consistency is spot-on. I tried the cheese sauce with both chicken nuggets and waffle fries, and IMHO, it goes much better with the nuggets.

But not everyone is on board. Some Chick-fil-A-goers don't see the tie between a "warm" cheese dip and a restaurant renowned for a fried chicken sandwich. 

Sure, cheese goes great on everything, and queso is liquid gold, but Chick-fil-A's chicken already has a distinct, tangy flavor (thank you, pickle juice!) that is well-supplemented by an array of existing sauces. Cheese shouldn't be one of them.

More cheese dip for the rest of us, Twitter says. The dip has been called "heavenly" and "life-changing," and honestly, who is surprised? Name one time Chick-fil-A has failed you. I'll wait.

Some are annoyed that Chick-fil-A isn't calling its new "warm cheese dip" what it is: queso. The concept is not new, and Chick-fil-A isn't fooling anyone. Plus, the dip doesn't just come with your meal like your average honey mustard, Polynesian, or Chick-fil-A sauce would. The three-ounce serving will set you back $1.19. 

If your local Chick-fil-A gives you three, one-ounce servings of Chick-fil-A sauce for free, this queso-poser should at least be the same.
