#5: Teriyaki Sauce

While it may come as a surprise, teriyaki beats out many staple condiments to make our list. By packing a sweet and tangy flavor, teriyaki sauce pairs perfectly with dishes such as chicken wings. The hint of Asian flavor it brings will elevate your taste buds to another level. However, while being incredibly tasty, it is limited to accompanying only certain foods, which is why it isn’t higher on the list.

#4: Chick-fil-A Sauce

Chick-fil-A sauce has taken the fast food industry by storm. The demand for the condiment has skyrocketed over the last few years for a reason, so much so that stores started selling 8 oz tubs of it. The classic blend of BBQ and mustard creates a unique, and unmatched flavor which pairs perfectly with all different kinds of sandwiches. Whether it’s burgers, hotdogs or even just chicken, Chick-fil-A sauce is a condiment that is here to stay.

#3: Mustard

Mustard is a true classic with insane versatility. It’s often overshadowed by its counterpart of ketchup, which we believe to be an inferior product. Ranging from sweet honey mustard, to spicy dijon mustard, to even bitter yellow mustard, it adds a distinct bite to any food. It can be used as a condiment, binder or even a seasoning on both casual and refined dishes. 

#2: BBQ Sauce

BBQ sauce contains a unique taste which cannot be captured in any other sauce. Featured in most households and restaurants, it is a clear favorite among many. This sauce is almost impossible to beat, with the variety of options it offers. BBQ chips, BBQ chicken and BBQ wings are just some of the many possible combos. BBQ sauce jumps up to the number two spot due to its classic, sweet taste.

One word. Undefeated. Hot sauce has by far the most versatility of any condiment on this list. It is no question that hot sauce is a condiment, as it is featured in almost every restaurant. The King of Condiments can truly be put on anything. Types of hot sauce can vary between cultures and places, which makes this condiment filled with almost never-ending possibilities. The combinations of spice, flavor, and intensity brings it to the number one spot.
