Business Insider’s Hollis Johnson reviewed the Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich when it debuted in 2017, calling it a “fantastic seasonal sandwich.”
“The expertly grilled chicken combined with tangy barbecue sauce and sweet, salty bacon evokes sunny, smokey, lazy summer days with the grill fired up and the suntan lotion slathered on,”Johnson wrote. “A major sweet and salty combination is in play, and it’s hard to beat that when it’s done right.”
Chick-fil-A is also debuting the new Strawberry Passion Tea Lemonade on Monday as a summer beverage. The drink combines Chick-fil-A’s classic lemonade, unsweetened iced tea, and strawberry-passionfruit flavoring.
