Be still our Southern hearts!

Chick-fil-A just got a whole lot cheesier—and that's saying something. The chicken giant announced Monday morning that its Mac & Cheese is now available nationwide as a side option with any lunch, dinner, Kid's Meal or catering order at Chick-fil-A.

The new Mac & Cheese is the first side to be added permanently to the Chick-fil-A menu since 2016. Baked fresh daily, the Georgia-based chain's take on a classic macaroni and cheese recipe features a special blend of cheeses including cheddar, parmesan, and Romano. And boy is it creamy!

"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," Amanda Norris, executive director of menu and packaging for Chick-fil-A, said in a news release. "Mac & Cheese is also available on our catering menu as a quick pick-up for a larger gathering. It has a delicious, homemade taste!"

You might recall that Chick-fil-A tested its Mac & Cheese in five lucky markets last year, and it reportedly passed with flying colors.

"We have a very high bar when it comes to adding a menu item," Norris added, "but the feedback from our customers in the test markets made this decision easy. I am excited it will be available for all of our guests across the country starting today."

Come and get it!
