Most of these are only available for a limited time, so don’t miss out.  And also remember, these items are available at participating restaurants and may not be at all locations.

Which of these new summer menu items are you most excited to try?

  • Jimmy John's

    Jimmy John’s is bringing back an item for summer: their wraps!  But they are also adding a spicy variety to the line-up as well.  The returning items are the Chicken Caesar Wrap and the Thai Chicken Wrap.  The new item is the Jalapeno Ranch Chicken Wrap.  This wrap has chicken, provolone cheese, jalapeno ranch, crispy jalapenos, and red pepper flakes.  It’s all wrapped up in a flour tortilla.

  • Buffalo Wild Wings

    There are two limited-edition sauces being added to the menu at Buffalo Wild Wings.  You’ve got General Tso’s and Sweet Chili Lime.

    The General Tso’s sauce features crushed red pepper and chile de arbol.  The Sweet Chili Lime sauce is a blend of honey, chile, and line.

    The Chief Market Officer at Buffalo Wild Wings, Tristan Meline, says, “Our new limited-edition General Tso’s and Sweet Chile Lime sauces embody the perfect fusion of sweet, spicy, and savory that’s perfect to enjoy throughout the summer.”

  • Sonic Drive-In

    Sonic’s new summer treat is the Shortcake Snowball Slush Float.  The float is a blend of strawberries and shortcake that’s topped with vanilla ice cream and sugary crystals.

    It’s described as being reminiscent of the strawberry shortcake many enjoy in the summer, but “with an innovative twist.”

  • 7-Eleven

    While we don’t have any around the Augusta area, there are some 7-Eleven stores in South Carolina if you’re willing to drive a bit.  For summer, 7-Eleven is bringing back wings.  And they’ve got a glazed barbecue variety with a smoky-sweet glaze.  The wings are available bone-in or in a breaded boneless variety.

    There’s a menu item returning to Popeyes’ menu… but this one isn’t just for summer.  It’s going to be a permanent addition.  It’s the Blackened Chicken Sandwich. This sandwich will be the first permanent addition to Popeyes’ chicken sandwich lineup since they launched it back in 2019.

    The sandwich features a whole chicken breast that’s been marinated for 12 hours.  It’s seasoned with a blend of Cajun spices and served on a warm, toastesd buttery brioche bun.  It’s topped with classic or spicy mayo and pickles.
