Chick-fil-A is getting ready for the summer with a barbecue-inspired new entrée: the Maple Pepper Bacon Sandwich. And to wash it down, they’re bringing back the classic Peach Milkshake for its 15th year.

“We are always looking for ways to make unique twists to our entrée selection and the Maple Pepper Bacon Sandwich is a delicious spin on the Chick-fil-A flavors our Guests know and love,” Allison Duncan, director of menu and packaging said via a press release provided to Guilty Eats. “It is a delicious blend of sweet, savory and spicy, offering an entirely different flavor profile than any other sandwich we’ve launched. We have several new and exciting offerings in the pipeline and look forward to continuing to surprise our Guests with bold, new tastes in the future!”

So what’s in the Maple Pepper Bacon Sandwich? What if I said “strawberries and limes,” would you believe me? Probably not. And in fact, there’s no fruit in this sandwich at all. Instead, it brings on spicy Pepper Jack cheese, lettuce, and bacon tossed in brown sugar and pepper. But in a few fun, surprising twists the sandwich also comes layered with sweet and spicy pickles and is served on a buttered, toasted, maple-flavored brioche bun. In addition, the chicken isn’t your typical fried Chick-fil-A breast; it’s a lemon herb marinated boneless breast that’s been grilled, to make you feel like you’re getting a sandwich from your own backyard.

Sounds great! I will eat this, sign me up.

As for the Peach Milkshake, you probably know the drill as it's an iconic part of Chick-fil-A’s summer menu. But in case not, this is a milkshake featuring the chain’s Icedream dessert, peach puree, and is topped with whipped cream and a cherry.

“For me – and many of our guests – Chick-fil-A’s Peach Milkshake signals the arrival of summer,” Christy Cook, Chick-fil-A Chef said via statement. “This June, we’re thrilled to bring back the seasonal favorite alongside the new Maple Pepper Bacon Sandwich. The Summer is all about time spent outside, eating good food with family and friends, and we think this is the perfect pairing to enjoy during those long, hot days.”

Both of these menu items will hit Chick-fil-A’s nationwide on Monday, June 10.
