Sauce-Flavored Popsicles

Zaxby's & Frios Created Frozen Treats Inspired by Bold Sauce Flavors

— September 15, 2022 — Lifestyle
Premium quick-service restaurant Zaxby's and gourmet popsicle brand Frios teamed up to create a pair of sauce-flavored popsicles inspired by Zaxby's boldest sauces. The Zax Sauce and Tongue Torch condiments inspired this unconventional popsicle pair, which are dropping for free, for a limited time, online.

These Saucesicles were created for the brand's most loyal fans and they promise a savory twist on a classic frozen treat. While the Zax Sauce-flavored Saucesicle boasts all the sweet, tangy and creamy flavors created by the secret blend of spices, black pepper and Worcestershire sauce, the Tongue Torch Saucesicle is a mild heat tomato pop with notes of garlic, paprika, turmeric and a hint of lime.

Zaxby's is renaming the month of September to "Saucetember" to highlight its portfolio of a dozen dipping and tossing sauces.
