It’s the Smokehouse BBQ Sandwich, and it features grilled chicken, Colby-Jack cheese, “Smokehouse BBQ” sauce, and pepper-and-brown-sugar bacon on a Hawaiian-style bun. (You may want to wipe the drool off your face.)
Chick-fil-A partnered with Atlanta based chef and restauranteur Ford Fry to develop the sandwich, test marketed it in 2015, and will launch it May 22 with a limited run until August 19.
“This is the first time we have tried what were are calling a seasonal approach to an entree,” David Farmer, Chick-fil-A’s vice president of menu strategy and development, told Business Insider. ” We wanted to do something different for the summer.”
I know what you’re thinking: if they tested it in 2015, why are we just now hearing about it? Well, the company focused on its new app last summer, so we had to wait until this summer. Chick-fil-A will also debut a watermelon-mint lemonade this summer.
Let’s all hit our knees and thank God for Chick-fil-A. Ain’t it a great time to be alive?
