If you ever go to Whataburger and order something other than a burger -- Whatacrazyidea! -- take note. As of 3 p.m. Monday, Sept. 28, the Texas-based fast-food burger chain is selling a new, limited-time-only chicken strip sandwich with buffalo sauce and buttermilk ranch.
The only surprising thing about this sandwich is that Whataburger didn't sell it until now.
Spicy chicken strips, with ranch, between two buns, is a no-brainer addition to Whataburger's simple menu. It's bound to be a crowd pleaser. Just don't look at the calories; fried chicken on bread isn't low in fat, sodium, carbs or sugar.
The sandwich will be available until Dec. 31, 2015, extended only if Whataburger customers prove they like it, a spokeswoman says.
The regular-sized sandwich costs $5.59 or $7.69 with fries and a drink; the junior-sized sandwich costs $4.54 or $6.64 with fries and a drink.
Note that the buffalo sauce is not available as a side. You're out of luck if you want to order fries or chicken strips and spice them up yourself.
