MINNEAPOLIS - August 31, 2015 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Buffalo Wild Wings® today announced that the B-Dubs® Sauce Lab is bringing back several popular "Limited Time Only" sauces, as voted on by fans. Starting today, Ghost Pepper and Bourbon Honey Mustard are once again featured in all 1,120 Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants, and for the first time, sold in special-edition Team Up for Kids® bottles to take home through November 1, while supplies last.
