This Is Not a Drill: Chick-fil-A Adds Cheesy New Side Item
Over the weekend, I kept seeing stories about mac & cheese coming to Chick-fil-A on Monday. I was super excited at first, but when I read the fine print, it seemed the cheesy goodness would only be offered in certain cities. So, I figured a trip to Nashville would be in my future. But, after we asked for clarification, Dustin sent us this App Chat:
So, I tried ordering it for myself, and Dustin was right! I was not able to order it from the Eastland Mall location, but I only tried in their app. The Crosspoint location does offer it:
The mac & cheese is the first permanent menu item, since 2016. Chick-fil-A is also offering a new seasonal coffee.
Here's what the folks at Chick-fil-A have to say about the new additions:
The new Mac & Cheese - the first permanent side addition to the menu since 2016 - is a classic macaroni and cheese recipe, featuring a special blend of cheeses including cheddar, parmesan and Romano. It is baked in restaurant each day.
“Mac & Cheese is the quintessential comfort food, and something we are so excited to offer our guests at Chick-fil-A. We think it's the perfect pairing with our Original Chicken Sandwich, nuggets and our grilled chicken offerings, but it's also great on its own as a snack,” said Amanda Norris, executive director of menu and packaging. “Mac & Cheese is also available on our catering menu as a quick pick-up for a larger gathering. It has a delicious, homemade taste!”
Mac & Cheese was tested in five markets and passed with flying colors. “We have a very high bar when it comes to adding a menu item,” said Norris, “but the feedback from our customers in the test markets made this decision easy. I am excited it will be available for all of our guests across the country starting today.”
Frosted Caramel Coffee also rolls out today, available for a limited time. It is a delicious hand-spun treat that combines Chick-fil-A’s custom blend of cold-brewed coffee with vanilla Icedream® dessert and caramel syrup. This seasonal offering will be available until Nov. 9 or while supplies last.
