In the chaotic commotion occuring at the lunch lines, acquiring the sauce is the next step after getting food on one’s tray. The varieties of condiments the lunch staff provides is like a palette of colors for an artist. Ketchup, honey mustard, sweet and sour sauce, and even the infamous Tabasco sauce. The lunch staff have recently begun putting put out a mysterious sauce one can choose from in a small cup, with the lid written over in black marker spelling, “Timber Sauce”.
Timber Sauce is a new dipping sauce that can be found by the sauces and utensils table in the commons during lunches. Its soft orange color along with the unknown ingredients mixed within it gives a secretive taste.
Lunch staff Matt Hardy and Jeri Pedan are the masterminds behind the mysterious dressing. “[Hardy] decided to name it Timber Sauce just to give it a name for something different because we’re Timberline and he thought Timber Sauce would be a funny idea,” said Pedan.
“Tastes like a lighter honey mustard with extra ingredients and maybe a little bit of ketchup,” said sophomore Brad Parker. Parker tasted the sauce which gave him a surprising yet familiar taste. Junior Caleb Linggi receives a feeling of deja vu from the taste of the Timber Sauce. “It’s similar to other fry sauces that I tasted like that one fry sauce from Van’s,” said Linggi. “It’s good. I would use it as dip.”
Sophomore Hannah Lee on the other hand makes an unpleasant face as she reluctantly tastes the mystery sauce. “It tastes sour and tastes bad. I don’t really like it,” said Lee.
The sauce’s contents remains a mystery to the public. The theories are endless to what this may be, whether it is a mix of condiments, a locally created sauce, or even sauce that is bought from a company.
