Just when we thought life was (somewhat) returning to normal.

We gotten through the toilet paper shortage, the disinfecting wipes shortage, the Grape-Nuts shortage, but THIS? A shortage in sauces (like the lip-smacking Chick-fil-A Signature Sauce) just might be more than Chick-fil-A fans can take.

A kink in the supply chain is reportedly to blame. What that means for us is Chick-fil-A allowing customers just ONE dipping sauce packet per item ordered at the majority of its restaurants, 6abc.com reports.

So, what did I spend my afternoon doing in the wake of this news? Raiding the station break room for leftovers. I managed to find a few sauces tucked away in drawers, cabinets, and on the door of the refrigerator. I'm not messing around. I need my Garden Herb Ranch.

Ketchup packets seemed to be having a similar problem lately, becoming scarce at some eateries. In response, Heinz stepped up its production of them by 25 percent, according to 6abc.com. And chicken wings are also reportedly endangered!
