The Ultimate Guide to Raising Cane's Sauce

Saucy Nuggs Wendys

Raising Cane's sauce is most notably great with fried, breaded chicken tenders but that super savory, tangy orange liquid goes great with a great many things you may not have thought of. Canes seems to have recognized this and offers us lucky consumers the ability to buy either the 22 oz or the 32 oz containers of their signature sauce.

I was one of the Caniacs who purchased a 32 oz cup of the good stuff and spent a few days slapping it all over my favorite foods. Here are the best dishes to pair the sauce with.

  • Papa Johns Pepperoni Pizza (Well Done)

  • Subway's Meatball Meatball Marinara

  • Smash Burgers with Carmelized Onions

  • Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

  • White Castle Hamburgers

  • Panda Express Fried Rice

  • Domino's Stuffed Cheesy Bread

  • Taco Bell's Cheesy Gordita Crunch

  • Taco Bell's Chicken or Steak Quesadilla

  • Wendys Double Stack with Extra Onions

  • Wendys Non Spicy Chicken Nuggets

  • Chic-fil-A Deluxe Chicken Sandwich

  • Subway's Veggie Pizza

  • Firehouse Subs Jamaican Jerk Chicken Sub

  • Publix Chicken Tender Sub w/ Banana Peppers

  • Texas Roadhouse Mini Rolls

  • Pepperoni Hot Pockets

  • Arby's Brisket Sandwich

How long is Cane's Sauce good for?

Since Cane's sauce contains mayo, you'll want to keep it in your fridge. Once it's there, you should be safe to use it for at least 7 days after purchase. Keep in mind the taste will change and there is a chance the sauce's heavier ingredients will settle at the bottom.

When that happens you can give your sauce a good stir to revive it. Or, you can add some ketchup, mayo, or whatever you feel your aging sauce is starting to lack. Introducing new ingredients won't extend the shelf life but should preserve some of the deliciousness.

What is Cane's Sauce made of?
