No deal here, but good news for Chick-fil-A fans looking for something different at the popular fast-food restaurant. Chick-fil-A is the latest to offer a plant-based menu item — the Chick-fil-A Cauliflower Sandwich. The new “plant-forward” sandwich is an alternative to its iconic Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich and it’s getting rave reviews from the few who’ve tasted it so far.
The Chick-fil-A Cauliflower Sandwich makes its much-anticipated debut on Monday, February 13, but in only three markets — Charleston, South Carolina, Greensboro, North Carolina and Denver! The sandwich is available for a limited time, while supplies last. (The sandwich has been in development for nearly 4 years!)
According to CFA: “The sandwich is made with a tender filet cut from a whole, real cauliflower and embraces the plant-forward style that places vegetables at the center of the entrée. The preparation is similar to the original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich – it is marinated, breaded with a signature seasoning, pressure-cooked and served on a toasted buttery bun with two dill pickle chips.”
For vegetarians and vegans, it’s important to note that milk and eggs are included in the preparation process. In addition, Chick-fil-A does not designate vegetarian-only preparation surfaces.
If the testing goes well, the sandwich could be available nationwide by the end of the year.
The sandwich is expected to sell for $6.59.
We’re wildly curious about the new sandwich. If you give the sandwich a taste, let us know your thoughts below.
I loved the Chick-fil-A Cauliflower Sandwich,,, but I have a great suggestion: I would love to see Cauliflower poppers – pieces like tater tots. The bread on the sandwich was a bit over-kill for my taste. I ate half the bun, added lettuce, tomato and also some of their excellent jalapeno salsa. YUM!
