Chick-fil-A hoping new Cauliflower filet sandwich takes off, but will New Jerseyans bite

TOMS RIVER, NJ – Chick-fil-A, a beloved brand all across New Jersey where people line up in lines sometimes as long as a football field has announced they’re dipping their toes into vegan cuisine.

Last Monday, the company rolled out the Chick-fil-A Cauliflower Sandwich. Right now, it’s only in a test area that includes Denver, Colorado; Charleston, South Carolina; and Greensboro, North Carolina, but if successful, you can see it soon at the Jersey Shore.

According to the company, The Chick-fil-A Cauliflower Sandwich is made from a tender filet from a whole cauliflower that is breaded in our signature seasoning and pressure-cooked in 100% refined peanut oil. Like the original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich, the new cauliflower entrée will be served on a toasted buttery bun with two dill pickle chips.

The sandwich might be a hard sell to die-hard vegans because of the way it is cooked, but the company is hoping the idea takes off.

“While some may consider the Cauliflower Sandwich vegetarian-friendly, Chick-fil-A does not consider it vegetarian due to its cooking environment,” the company said. “But the Cauliflower Sandwich is plant-forward, as it places a tender filet from a whole cauliflower at the centerpiece of the entrée. It’s a great option for those looking to bring more vegetables into their diet without sacrificing the Chick-fil-A flavors they know and love.”
