New or Not, I'm Obsessed with This Whataburger Dipping Sauce

There's nothing we love more than cracking open a new or secret menu item at Whataburger. From the Mushroom Swiss Burger to the strawberry sauce that covered our breakfast biscuits last year, we keep tabs on the new releases from every Texan's favorite fast food chain. Perusing the Whataburger website, we stumbled across something that feels new, even though it really isn't at all to most Texans. It has to do with their iconic Honey Butter sauce.

On January 8, 2018, Whataburger tweeted a very interesting photo.

Now, most Whataburger fans might have already thought this existed since more than a few of us have asked for extra cups of Honey Butter to go with our fries or breakfast biscuits. After all, the breakfast sausage biscuit covered in Honey Butter is just plain tasty. However, after perusing the internet even further, it dawned on us that this may very well be a new dipping sauce for the brand officially.

And if that's the case, then please, we'll take 12 dipping sauces.

So what does this mean for your order? Well, it seems that now you can ask for the Honey Butter Dipping Sauce to pair with just about anything. The fried chicken strips? You got it! Want to dip your grilled cheese in it? Do your thing! You can even toss one or two pours into the classic Whataburger pancake mix or on top. No longer will just your Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit be topped with the sweet nectar of the finest sauce in all of Texas.

In the search to find out the truth of this dipping sauce secret, I stumbled across an even more amazing find that those Whataburger fans across America will love. That's right, you can order Whataburger Honey Butter sauce from H-E-B stores and online.

For $3.34 each online, you can have this sauce shipped right to your door no matter where you live. With the classic honey butter flavors inside, pair with hamburgers, fries, and your typical diner food. This liquid gold makes any meal that much more Southern, don't you think? Fans of the HBCB certainly agree.

Here are three recipes that I love pairing with the clandestine cups of honey butter I bring home from every fast food run. Now it's just nice to know that the dipping sauce comes sealed with a lid so I don't have to worry about spilling it on my way home.

1. Pickle Brined Fried Chicken


Wide Open Eats

Of course fried chicken pairs with honey butter, but the tang of our Pickle Brined Fried Chicken compliments the sweet honey butter dripping down the sides of perfectly fried drumsticks and thighs.

2. Easy Pear Kolaches


Wide Open Eats

Our homemade kolaches recipe is foolproof, and if you're not a fan of pears, you can always swap in your preferred fruit. Apples are a great substitution in this recipe. And with that liquid gold smeared all over it? Delicious.

3. Candied Pepper Bacon

Wide Open Eats

Candied bacon is our specialty, and let me tell you that these strips coated in brown sugar and black pepper is enough to be outright tasty. That being said, we recommend using a pastry brush to baste the bacon with Honey Butter for a new twist on candied bacon that has all the flavors you could need.

After all, bacon and honey are two compatible flavors that we often don't pair together. Get the recipe for Candied Pepper Bacon here.

So add this bottle to your collection of Spicy Ketchup for when you bring home a few extra taquitos from your late-night run. You can find them in most local grocery stores if you're in Texas.
