Create an Extra Option

Navigate to WooFood->Extra Options and press Add Extra Option and in the title type the name(for example Chilly Sauce) of the Extra Option, after that set the extra price for this extra option and select the Extra Option Categories to be assigned :You can also select the Product Categories for this extra option to be visible(or you can manually select the extra option categories to be visible on each product, i will tell you how to do this in the next step).

Note: If you want Extra Option to have a different name on backend and be with other name visible in frontend complete also the Visible as to the name you want to be visible in public. For example . You have 1 variable product (Burger) with two sizes. Normal and Large  and you are charging Chilly Sauce double in Large Burger .Then you have 2 create 2 different Extra Options . One with Title Chilly Sauce for Normal Burger  and set the visible as Chilly Sauce and the 2 Extra Option will have Chilly Sauce for Large as Title and Chilly Sauce as Visbile as.
