The new spicy sandwich at Chick-fil-A
Boasts heat that will make wimps most likely bray.
And if it's two meals' worth of sodium*
At least it's not more fast-food tedium...
* Actually, the plain sandwich ($3.27 including tax) has 1730 mg of sodium, which is 72 percent of a day's recommended intake (it's saltier by a tad than the regular sandwich and a good bit saltier, and in the ballpark on calories and fat as -- are you ready? -- the KFC Double Down.) You can also get the sandwich made deluxe, with lettuce, tomato and pepperjack cheese. Either way, it comes with two pickle slices, and a bit of orange (from the marinade) rims the crust (a seasoned flour coating). It may not be habanero-hot, but it has a nice little kick that develops as you keep eating. My verdict? I like it, but the original still rules.
