Chick-fil-A has a New Spicy Offering and a Returning Summer Favorite!

By  | 

Chick-fil-A has released its new spicy chicken strips in additional parts of the state, which debuted last fall in Central and South Texas, as well as Philadelphia. Americans seem to love this fried chicken fast-food chain, naming it the favorite fast-food restaurant in America for three years running! With new menu items such as this latest release, in addition to a summertime fan favorite that’s making a return, it’s easy to see why the chain is on track to becoming the third largest of its kind in the U.S.

For those of you not yet aware that a spicy chicken strip was available through Chick-fil-A, it’s similar in nature to the original strip on the menu. However, it’s “seasoned with a spicy blend of peppers.” The fast-food chain has described the test offering as “a combination of two customer favorites, the original Chick-fil-A Chick-n-Strips and the Spicy Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich.” The test menu item is presently being made available in packs of three or four.

It’s not the first time these guys have tried us out as guinea pigs, and we’ve loved it! There’s a fan favorite that’s returning thanks to popular demand (for a limited time only) and that’s the peach milkshake! The seasonal treat is making its return to national menu boards on May 27, 2019, but will only be available through to the end of August. Peaches and the Texas Hill Country go hand-in-hand, so you can guarantee there’s going to be considerable uptake there!

The select restaurants at which the spicy chicken strips will make their debut are located not only in Texas but also in Arizona and Pennsylvania, and will continue to be served at locations at which they are presently on the menu. If all goes well, there’s a strong possibility that these spicy strips of fried chicken goodness will roll out nationwide. However, according to company sources, it generally takes approximately two years for a new menu item to become a regular offering. Amanda Norris, Executive Director of the Chick-fil-A menu, recently told Business Insider, “You’re going to see Chick-fil-A do more with spicy,” and we don’t necessarily feel that’s such a bad thing!
