Chick-fil-A launched a new sandwich for summer that will be an instant fan favorite

Jun 7, 2024

The start of summer means that Chick-fil-A is introducing some delicious new items for the season.

Now the beloved chain is hoping that it created a new summertime staple.

And Chick-fil-A launched a new sandwich for summer that will be an instant fan favorite. 

Chick-fil-A is kicking summer off with a new sandwich and the return of a classic 

Chick-fil-A is starting off summer with some new additions to its menu that are perfect for the warm months ahead.

The all-new Maple Pepper Bacon Sandwich is on menus nationwide for a limited time.

Chick-fil-A decided to roll it out nationally after a successful test run at locations in Lexington, Kentucky, and Indianapolis, Indiana last year.

Now the chain is hoping that this blend of sweet and spicy is a hit with fans everywhere. 

The sandwich features a lemon herb marinated grilled chicken breast, pepper jack cheese, green leaf lettuce, bacon with a brown sugar and pepper blend, and topped with sweet and spicy pickles.

A buttered and toasted maple flavored brioche bun is used to help give it its signature taste. 

The sandwich becomes the only option besides the Grilled Chicken Club to combine chicken and bacon, a popular and delicious combination. 

Chick-fil-A director of menu and packaging Allison Duncan said that the Maple Pepper Bacon Sandwich had a taste unlike anything else on the menu.

“We are always looking for ways to make unique twists to our entrée selection and the Maple Pepper Bacon Sandwich is a delicious spin on the Chick-fil-A flavors our Guests know and love,” Duncan said. “It is a delicious blend of sweet, savory and spicy, offering an entirely different flavor profile than any other sandwich we’ve launched.”

And she said that more new and exciting sandwiches are on the way.

“We have several new and exciting offerings in the pipeline and look forward to continuing to surprise our Guests with bold, new tastes in the future!” Duncan added.

Chick-fil-A was testing a line of Pretzel Cheddar Club Sandwiches earlier this year that had a cross-cut pretzel bun, cheddar cheese, bacon, and Dijon mustard.

The Maple Pepper Bacon Sandwich was a chance to highlight the chain’s grilled chicken according to its inventor, Chick-fil-A’s senior culinary lead Christy Cook.

“A lot of people forget that we offer this tender and juicy grilled fillet, and we wanted to feature that in a way that customers have not experienced before,” Cook said.

She said the goal with the sandwich was to make its taste “pleasantly sweet with gentle heat.”

Chick-fil-A is following the trend of blending sweet and heat to create “swicy.”

The National Association of Convenience Stores said that “swicy” is going to be one of the hottest trends in food this summer.

Chick-fil-A is bringing its iconic Peach Milkshake for summer

The Peach Milkshake is returning for summer for its 15th year.

It’s become one of the most popular milkshakes on Chick-fil-A’s menu over the years.

The milkshake is made with vanilla soft serve and peach puree before its handspun and topped with whipped cream and a cherry.

“For me – and many of our guests – Chick-fil-A’s Peach Milkshake signals the arrival of summer,” Cook said. “This June, we’re thrilled to bring back the seasonal favorite alongside the new Maple Pepper Bacon Sandwich. The Summer is all about time spent outside, eating good food with family and friends, and we think this is the perfect pairing to enjoy during those long, hot days.”

Chick-fil-A fans will have some sweet and “swicy” new menu items waiting for them this summer.
