ICYMI: Chick-Fil-A Is Launching A New ‘Smokehouse BBQ Bacon’ Sandwich

Via Business Insider:
“This is the first time we have tried what were are calling a seasonal approach to an entree,” David Farmer, Chick-fil-A’s vice president of menu strategy and development, told Business Insider. “We wanted to do something different for the summer.”

Chick-fil-A developed the sandwich more than two years ago with Atlanta restaurateur and a James Beard Award-nominated chef Ford Fry.

Farmer says the key ingredient in the sandwich is the “lose-your-mind” bacon that’s seasoned with brown sugar and black pepper in restaurants and then roasted in an oven.
