The Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich is Chick-fil-A's first new non-breakfast sandwich since the introduction of its revamped Grilled Chicken recipe back in April of 2014, according to a spokesperson. However, it will only be around for a limited time this summer -- May 22 through August 19 -- nationwide.
David Farmer, Chick-fil-A's vice president of menu strategy and development, said the BBQ sandwich is "unlike anything we have on the menu." On top of that, Chick-fil-A is also launching Watermelon Mint Lemonade that's made to complement the sandwich's savory and zesty BBQ flavors. Perhaps the biggest story here, though, is all of the other sandwiches on the menu that you'll be able to customize with the new candied bacon topping. Your regular chicken sandwich will never be the same.
