“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.

The gooey offering is made using a special blend of cheese including cheddar, parmesan and Romano and is baked fresh each day, according to the company’s blog The Chicken Wire.

Chick-fil-A tested its mac and cheese side in limited markets for more than a year before deciding to add it permanently.

“We have a very high bar when it comes to adding a menu item,” said Norris on The Chicken Wire, “but the feedback from our customers in the test markets made this decision easy.”

The mac and cheese side is available starting today, August 12.

Though if you’re looking for something a little more sweet than savory, Chick-fil-A is not done rolling out exciting new options.
