Chick-fil-A first introduced the Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich with a national release two years ago this month.  The Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich has returned for a limited-time only summer offering.  The sandwich features a grilled chicken breast that is marinated with “a special blend of seasonings and grilled for a tender and juicy backyard-grilled taste.”  Also included in the Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich… three slices of bacon hand-tossed in a brown sugar and pepper blend, a slice of Colby Jack cheese, leaf lettuce, a zesty Smokehouse BBQ sauce all on a toasted, buttered sweet yeast bun.  My local CFA in Maryland has the sandwich priced at $6.69, but price may vary by location.  Nutrition-wise you’re looking at 490 calories, 18 grams of fat, 44 grams of carbs, 1220 milligrams of sodium, 2 grams of fiber, 11 grams of sugar, and 38 grams of protein.  The Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich will be available at Chick-fil-A locations nationwide through Saturday, August 24th.Also available at Chick-fil-A for the summer is a new addition to the drink menu… Strawberry Passion Tea Lemonade.  The new beverage is a combo of Chick-fil-A Lemonade (or Diet Lemonade  which is sweetened with Splenda No Calorie Sweetener) and unsweetened iced tea blended with strawberry passionfruit juice and flavors.  My local CFA has a small Strawberry Passion Tea Lemonade priced at $2.05 and the large is $2.29.  Prices may vary by location.  The small size is 140 calories for regular and 80 calories for the diet version.  The large is 190 calories vs. 110 calories for diet.  Last but not least, the Peach Milkshake is back on the Chick-fil-A menu nationwide.  The Peach Milkshake has been a seasonal summer staple for a decade now and it features Chick-fil-A Icedream blended with real peaches and topped with whipped cream and a cherry.  My CFA has a small priced at $3.59 (660 calories) and a large priced at $4.05 (850 calories).  Like the aforementioned Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich and Strawberry Passion Tea Lemonade, the Peach Milkshake will be available though August 24th.
