by Emily Morgan

Another day, another reason to go to Chick-Fil-A. According to reports, the popular chicken chain is putting a new spin on a popular breakfast item. In addition, it’s ideal for those on the run who need something quick and easy. 

For the first time since 2017, the popular fast food eatery will release an all-new breakfast item at select locations: Chorizo Cheddar Egg Bites. 

According to reports from Delish, the item, which comes in a four-pack, is made with whole eggs, chorizo sausage, and a mixture of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses. 

Chick-fil-A, which encourages its guests to opt for chicken and less beef, is testing the item in select markets with the hopes that its consumers will love the new breakfast option. 

Later, if they determine the item is a hit, Chick-Fil-A locations across the nation will begin selling them. In addition, this new menu item comes just in time as parents and their children are returning to school in the coming days. 

“As summer ends and the back-to-school morning routine begins, we wanted to offer our customers a new protein-packed entrée that keeps them satisfied when they’re on the go without sacrificing taste,” said Leslie Neslage, director of menu and packaging at Chick-fil-A, Inc., in an official statement about the new menu item. 

She added: “Our guests are asking for more bite-sized, shareable breakfast options, and we look forward to hearing what they think about our limited-time Chorizo Cheddar Egg Bites test.”

Starting on August 22, Chick-Fil-A guests in cities such as Augusta, Ga.; Aiken, S.C.; Columbus, Ohio; Norfolk and Portsmouth, Va.; Miami and New Orleans will be able to test out the new item.
