A Definitive Ranking of McDonald's Dipping Sauces

Some sauces are just not as good as others.

Chicken nuggets are one of the best things to grace this good earth. They're just perfect and delicious and say what you want about them, but McDonald's makes some bomb chicken nuggets. The only thing as great as them are the sauces that you can dip them in. But which one is truly best? We won't waste our time on discontinued sauces of the past, just the current line up. Let's dive, or should I say, dip in.

8. Signature Sauce

It seems like every nugget chain has created their own signature sauce now. McDonald's put forth a valiant effort but just fell a little flat with theirs. This sauce isn't bad, but there's no wow factor.

7. Honey Mustard

This used to be the sauce everyone asked for when it came to nugs, but the once king of sauces is falling behind the times. Still not a bad choice, but definitely no longer a top contender.

6. Sweet 'N Sour

You either love this sauce, or you hate it. Personally, I'm all for it, but I can see where some people might not be a fan. Its distinctive flavor keeps it lower on the list.

5. Habanero Ranch

Spicy combined with ranch has to be good, right? You're mixing two awesome things. Despite this, this orange colored ranch just doesn't compete well enough to make its way to the top. Still a solid choice.

4.Tangy Barbeque

A classic for a reason, it's just always been good and always will be. BBQ is clearly here to stay. But, it doesn't always hold a candle to some other flavors, landing it in the middle.

3. Spicy Buffalo

Buffalo is delicious, and if you can't handle the heat, then get out of the drive-thru. Buffalo chicken is one of the greatest flavor combinations in the world as is, so the dip clearly nears the top for a reason.

2. Creamy Ranch

Maybe it's the Midwesterner in me, but ranch goes with everything. It especially pairs so well with chicken nuggets AND french fries alike. You can never go wrong with ranch.

1. Szechuan Sauce

RIP to the best thing to ever happen to McDonald's, even if you weren't a fan of Rick and Morty. I know I said we weren't gonna talk about all the discontinued sauces, but I don't think we'll ever stop mourning this one. A true king of dips.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"
