I was up late last night binge watching Netflix and I decided to make a late night snack.  After going through many options, I made the decision to cook a few chicken tenders and tater tots.  I wasn’t totally satisfied, so I opened my fridge to see a plethora of sauces.  There were so many that I couldn’t choose.  Should I go with ole faithful ketchup?  Should I choose the reliable ranch?  Or should I mix it up and go with the sleeper picks like Sweet Baby Rays BBQ or Frank’s Red Hot?  I was torn having to make this decision.  But it got me thinking and had me asking myself, which sauce has the sauce?

Once my food came out of the oven I began my research.  I lined up five bowls and filled them up with my favorite sauces: ketchup, ranch, BBQ, hot sauce, and one of my dad’s favorites, which is kranch.  This is a sauce made by Heinz that is a mix of ranch and ketchup which didn’t sound too good to me, but I figured it was worth a try.

First came ketchup.  It’s the flavor we all know and love.  It was very sweet and delicious and went very well with the tater tots.  But, if I’m being honest I’m not the biggest fan when it came to dipping the chicken in it.  I’m not saying it was bad, but there is definitely some room for improvement.  Next, I dipped it in the BBQ and hot sauce, which both weren’t bad but weren’t anything special.  Unlike my expectations I’m surprised to say that the kranch was pretty gas.  I feel like they should’ve came up with a more appetizing name because kranch just sounds weird.  However, the kranch got me thinking, what if I mix all of the sauces?  Would it make an ultimate sauce?  So I tried mixing them all together and the answer is no.   The consistency was an instant turn off and all together just didn’t work out.  After all of this I got to the clear winner.  Ranch.  Nothing compared to the creamy deliciousness that I’m convinced could go on any food.  The versatility is just unmatched.  I don’t know how Hidden Valley does it but they are experts in their field.  It’s believed that they use God’s nectar to create this sauce straight from heaven and I fully believe it.
