Is a 90-minute drive for a chicken sandwich worth it?
Well, I'm about to find out. For the past week, Chick-fil-A has been giving away its new Spicy Chicken Sandwich as part of a preview before the sandwich's official launch on Monday. Unfortunately for me, the closest Chick-fil-A is in Boston (well, technically just outside of Boston), so when I found out about the sandwich -- which is only available by reservation -- I considering just skipping it.
But this is Chick-fil-A. The restaurant that got me through college (thanks to an on-campus franchise that was just one floor down from the newspaper office). And it's not like I had anything else to do today. So I'm getting ready to drive up to the Northshore Mall in Peabody to get my free sandwich. I know the gas and tolls will cost more than the sandwich would have, but that's not the point.
Once I've had the sandwich and I get back, I'll have a full review of it.
