Mild offers all the flavor of Original Hot without the burn. It may be bland without the game, but it still has that classic buffalo spirit.
After trying the Atomic flavor, we were thrilled to find that mild was basically the same, except for the over-the-top pungency. It’s your classic hot vinegar sauce wing, but with a more delicate spiciness that makes them easy to peel down. Although, if anything, the heat on this wing might be a little too much mitigated…
Well, if you don’t like spices, Mild is the hit, a classic buttery wing sauce with a hint of red pepper. Thanks to the abundance of butter, it’s a little richer and smoother than some of the spicier sauces. This taste is fairly harmless but can make you feel a little down if you don’t like dairy.
Original hot. Original Hot is one of Wingstop’s best-selling flavors. The Original Hot flavor is also the only sauce that has been on the menu since Wingstop opened in 1994. While in no way different from the other hot sauces, it still remains one of their most popular sauces.
Mango Habanero (Heat scale: 4)
What is that? Very simple – sweet heat! This will definitely get your tongue tingling, but you’ll be satisfied if you’re looking for a little zip with the habanero!
While Buffalo Wings is the most popular wings flavor nationwide, our East Coast Wing Squad fans ranked Honey Garlic as the second most popular. It’s fair to say that East Coasters have a penchant for the sweet and tangy flavor combination.
The original Wingstop hot sauce is darker red than most buffalo wing sauces, which are typically made by combining Frank’s RedHot Sauce with melted butter. Frank’s is more orange than red, so I went in search of an alternative Louisiana-style hot sauce that looked like this.
Wingstop describes its Louisiana Rub as “a dry rub with a hint of garlic and some Cajun love from the deep south.” It’s slightly less hot than their Cajun flavored wings, but still in the middle of the hot index.
Mango habanero is also a popular combination in Caribbean cuisine. The combination of fruit and peppers results in a sweet sauce that pairs well with chicken wings and seafood, and the balance of spicy and sweet can vary by operator and customer.
Hawaiian. A sweet and tangy blend of island citrus balanced with rich Asian flavors.
When you bite into them, they have the flavor and spiciness you expect from Buffalo Sauce but taken to the next level. This is followed by a strong peppery taste, like black pepper but with some smokiness.
On the Wingstop scale, Mango Habanero wings are less sharp than Atomic but sharper than Cajun wings. The special sauce is only available for a limited time, but Ortiz says you can make it at home.
The wings are flavored with hemp seed, strawberry, cayenne pepper and terpenes, which are compounds found in high concentrations in cannabis plants. On the Wingstop menu, the Blazed & Glazed” as “sticky, sweet and vegetal” and rated it a two out of five for spiciness.
If you love hot sauce but want to take it to the next level, try the mango habanero. This sauce is one of the hottest, most searing flavors Wingstop offers.
In something of an angry match, Wingstop is overwhelmingly preferred by our Wing fans. Overall, the wings are meaty and the flavors are strong, accurate, and avoid the cloying sweetness or saltiness of BWW. The Wing Bowl undoubtedly has to go to Wingstop this season.
