Love your Chick-Fil-A but need to kick it up a notch? Don’t worry; the Georgia born fast food giant is adding new spice to their menu. In certain markets—including in Texas and in Florida, Chick-Fil-A is testing out new delectable dishes with a little extra zing!

In a press release the company declared that in response to customer demands for “more bold, spicy flavors, Chick-Fil-A is testing two new spicy entrees – Spicy Chick-n-Strips and a Grilled Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich – in select markets for a limited time.” For Southerners, this means that in participating restaurants in south and central Texas, you will be able to try the Spicy Chick-n-Strips. For those of y’all in Orlando, Florida, St. Louis, Missouri, and Knoxville, Tennessee, you will have a chance to be the first to try the Grilled Spicy Deluxe Chicken Sandwich.

The Spicy Chick-n-Strips combine the already popular Spicy Chick-Fil-A Chicken Sandwich and the original Chick-n-Strips and the Grilled Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich is a healthier alternative for little more heat. On this sandwich the chicken will be marinated in a mixture of spicy seasonings, grilled and topped with Colby-jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, and then served on a crunchy, toasted multigrain brioche, coated with their new Cilantro Lime Sauce.

Kanika Patrick, manager of menu development at Chick-Fil-A told Southern Living that they really want to hear from you.

“We are excited to hear what customers think about our new spicy additions during the test!” She added that these menu options will be available until sometime in early 2018 in each of the test markets. “Once both tests conclude early next year, we will evaluate feedback from both our customers and our restaurants to determine whether or not one or both of these offerings will launch nationwide. We don’t have an exact timeline, but our hope is that the test is successful and we can look forward to a national rollout.”

So Texas, Tennessee, Florida, Missouri, we are looking at you all. Let us know how it tastes!
