Chick-fil-A fans throughout the state will be given the chance to experience a new twist on the fast food chain’s original chicken sandwich and a new fall-flavored milkshake in a little over a week.
Beginning Monday, August 28, guests will be able to try the sweet and savory Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich before topping it off with a Caramel Crumble Milkshake.
The new sandwich features a Chick-fil-A filet, topped with pimento cheese, mild pickled jalapeños, and served on a toasted bun drizzled with honey.
Never before used in a Chick-fil-A entrée, the mildly pickled jalapeños are expected to deliver just enough heat to balance the sweetness from the honey and the salty filet and pimento cheese.
“We wanted to create a standout sandwich that would deliver a unique spin for our guests, without losing the classic taste of the Original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich,” Stuart Tracy, Chick-fil-A Chef and creator behind the Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich, said. “The Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich uses ingredients and flavors our guests have never experienced at Chick-fil-A before, balancing savory, sweet, and spicy elements using the highest quality ingredients.”
As for the newest dessert option, the Caramel Crumble Milkshake combines butterscotch caramel, ice cream, blondie crumbles, whipped cream, and a cherry topping to give guests a different take on fall flavors.
When creating the brand’s seventh seasonal milkshake, Chick-fil-A Chef Christy Cook was inspired by the flavors that caramelize at the bottom of a blondie pan.
“Innovation has been part of Chick-fil-A’s history since 1964 when S. Truett Cathy created the Original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich,” Leslie Neslage, director of Menu and Packaging at Chick-fil-A, explained. “Since then, we’re always in tune with our customers’ appetites and look to create menu items that satisfy their cravings and offer unique flavor combinations.”
Customers can check the Chick-fil-A App or contact their local restaurant to find out if the menu items are served at a nearby location for dine-in, pick-up, or delivery.
