Chick-fil-A is bringing back the savory taste of a backyard barbecue that customers couldn’t get enough of the first go round.
The Atlanta-based fast food chain reintroduced its Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich on Monday. Atlanta was one of the markets that ordered the most Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich when it was temporarily on the menu in 2017, according to a Chick-fil-A news release.
Along with its reintroduction, the chicken giant will introduce a new Strawberry Passion Tea Lemonade for the summer. The summer sandwich and beverage will be rolled out nationwide at all Chick-fil-A locations today through Aug. 24.
“We are so excited for the return of the Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich and to introduce our new Strawberry Passion Tea Lemonade, two seasonal items that evoke the carefree delights of summer,” said Amanda Norris, Chick-fil-A executive director of menu and packaging.
The barbecue sandwich includes Chick-fil-A’s signature grilled chicken with bacon glazed in a brown sugar pepper blend and Colby Jack cheese on a Hawaiian-style bun, topped with a smokehouse barbecue sauce. The 500-calorie entree was a concept Chick-fil-A worked on with famed James Beard Award-winning restaurateur Ford Fry in 2017.
The Strawberry Passion Tea Lemonade will add a refreshing handcrafted beverage to the mix for the summer. It’s a combination of Chick-fil-A Lemonade and freshly brewed Unsweetened Iced Tea with natural strawberry passionfruit juice and flavors. If you’re watching your waistline, the drink is also available with Chick-fil-A Diet Lemonade.
