Chick-fil-A testing new Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich

Chick-fil-A is testing a new menu item that has one heck of a name: the Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich.

Of all the various fast food franchises, Chick-fil-A by far has the most devoted, some would say obsessed fans of any of them. You can regularly see lines around the block waiting in the drive-thrus, which have only gotten longer during the pandemic.

So when they announce a new item, it is usually a cause for celebration among Chick-fil-A devotees. Even when that new item is only available in certain locations and has a name that is almost as long as this story.

Get ready for the Chick-fil-A Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich.

It is being reported by WSPA that a handful of Chick-fil-A locations have announced the arrival of the Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich. This is in addition to the new dessert items that the fast food chain added last week.

In a statement from Chick-fil-A released to Guilty Eats, the chain notes:

“The new Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich is currently being tested at participating restaurants in the Asheville, North Carolina, and the Upstate South Carolina areas. Customer feedback will help us determine if it will be offered at additional restaurants in the future. We encourage customers in Asheville or Upstate South Carolina to check the Chick-fil-A App or contact their local restaurant to determine availability.

The (deep breath) Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich includes an original Chick-fil-A filet that has been drizzled with honey and has southern-style pimento cheese on top. It includes a toasted bun and for an extra shot of heat, pickled jalapenos.

At this point the Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich is only available at certain locations, so check with your local Chick-fil-A to see if they are among the lucky restaurants to have it. If not, it may be time for a road trip. Just saying.
