Once upon a time, I thought you had to venture to Nashville to obtain Nashville Hot Chicken. Well, now you can get them at a freaking gas station in West Virginia. We’re going to take a look at the Sheetz Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich.
What is a Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich?
Nashville Hot Chicken is not your average, run-of-the-mill chicken. It’s made from whole chicken parts and coated in spices including flour before being deep-fried and slathered in the famous Nashville hot sauce to give it that signature hot taste!
Here’s an authentic example of Nashville Hot Chicken at the world-renowned Hattie B’s:
Sheetz Version of the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich
If you’re familiar with Sheetz, then you know they had to put their own spin on the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich. It features a homestyle breaded chicken fillet smothered in Nashville hot sauce and drizzled with maple syrup, then sandwiched between two toasted waffles.
And of course, since it’s Sheetz you can customize that bad boy anyway you’d like. I just got mine the way it came in the Sheetz app with the Nashville hot chicken sandwiched between two waffles and topped with some maple syrup. $5 seemed like a lot of money for the sandwich until you pick it up. That thing has some mass.
Check out my review:
I was pleasantly surprised by the Sheetz Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich. As of June 2022 it is still offered at my local Sheetz. Since I’ve never been to Nashville this is as close as I’ll get for now, but I’d like to hear their opinion of this wannabe Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich from a gas station in West Virginia.
Sheetz Tutti Frutti Mini Crispies
At the end of the video, there was a special bonus appearance of Sheetz Tutti Frutti Mini Crispies. These were your basic Rice Krispy Treats with an interesting twist: they have freaking Fruity Pebbles in them! If you’re an 80s baby like me then you LOVE Fruity Pebbles. These were an impulse buy by the counter that will definitely be happening again. By the way, while you’re waiting in line you will be flanked by these types of desserts and snacks that are basically impossible to resist.
Sheetz Waffle Burger
Using two waffles as a bun is not just limited to the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich. Another captivating option would be to use the waffles as a bun on a burger. This is something I’m yet to do, but will definitely be doing in the future.
