Chick-fil-A’s First Ever Limited Time Item Is A BBQ Bacon Sandwich For Summer

Chick-fil-A is stepping into the limited-time-offer sandwich game for the very first time, and they brought in a heavy hitter to get the ball rolling.

The chicken chain just unleashed a new Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich in time for the summer season, marking the first time Chick-fil-A has ever debuted a seasonal, limited-time item. The Smokehouse consists of grilled chicken and bacon coated with brown sugar and pepper that’s served on a Hawaiian-style bun and topped with Colby Jack cheese, lettuce, and Smokehouse BBQ sauce specifically made for the new sandwich.

Chick-fil-A also went a little fancy and crafted a new Watermelon Mint Lemonade designed to pair with the new sandwich. Craft drink and sandwich pairing at a fast food joint? That’s pretty dope.

The sandwich starts at $5.59, while a small lemonade goes for $1.85, bringing the fast food pairing’s total to a little under seven and a half bucks, which isn’t too bad for a quick service meal.

If you’re hoping to try this new summertime combo from Chick-fil-A, though, you’ll have to head there before August 19th, when it gets taken off of the menu.

We Bid Goodbye To Taco Bell’s Naked Chicken Chalupa… For Now

And just like that, it’s gone.

Taco Bell announced that their hit new item, the Naked Chicken Chalupa, would be pulled off of menus sometime this month as the limited-time offer for this creation comes to an end.

It’s been a short but sweet ride for the Chalupa, which generated a TON of social media and site traffic. On Foodbeast alone, talk about the Chicken Chalupa generated nearly 500,000 video views. Worldwide, the total video hits across Facebook and YouTube alone of this unique fast food item easily exceeded 4.5 million.

Don’t be shy. It’s time for you to try the #NakedChickenChalupa.

The item was also a huge success for Taco Bell. While they don’t divulge sales-specific numbers, we were told that the Naked Chicken Chalupa joined the ranks of the Quesalupa and the Doritos Locos Taco as one of the most successful product launches of all time.

It wasn’t just the regular taco itself though that was a massive hit. Taco Bell also stated that more people hacked this menu item than any other limited-time offering from the fast food chain, which includes our own hacks that combined In-N-Out with this unique item. One person even took their love of the Naked Chicken Chalupa to the next level and got a tattoo of it.

While it’s a shame to see such a hyped and talked-about fast food item go so soon, there’s no need to fret. Taco Bell did confirm to us they are “confident” it will be back on the menu some time in the future.

Until then, so long, Naked Chicken Chalupa. You will be dearly missed for however length of time you’ll be gone.
