Popeyes Gave Me 'Honey Sauce' Instead Of Honey

Ghost of This justifies the practices of fast food condiment packet collectors everywhere by dipping into his Popeyes archives and catching the best restaurant in the world red-handed, having replaced real honey with something called “honey sauce.”

He writes:

I like Popeyes chicken and biscuits. I don’t eat there too frequently, but when I do I like putting honey on their biscuits which I have done for many years. One of the recent times I went I asked for honey which I always do and when I got home the small packet said “Honey sauce.” Now I might not have noticed that a couple of times, but I’m pretty sure it hasn’t been “sauce” forever. Well just today I was cleaning out a junk drawer and came across an “old” honey packet from popeys with real honey…I knew I wasn’t crazy. For this to have been in that drawer this change would have had to been made at some point over the last 2 years or so…too bad.

Snapped a picture because this screamed to be posted on consumerist a la cracker barrel maple syrup.

This reminds me of Dave Chappelle’s famed, not-quite safe for work “grape drink” monologue.

Has anyone tried this honey drink and judged its effectiveness on saucing up Popeyes’ sumptuous biscuits?
