This July, put on your game face, set your timer, and get ready to tackle summer’s craziest fried chicken sandwich with the return of The Smorgasbird from Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken – just in time for National Fried Chicken Day on July 6th. For every Smorgasbird sold, Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken will donate $5 to the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society.
Featured as the July Sandwich of the Month, The Smorgasbird is an enormous double-decker monster of a bird, and consists of two classic Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken cutlets, stacked high with caramelized pineapple, shredded lettuce, tomato, crunchy pickled cucumbers, doused with Blue Ribbon special sauce, and finally, stuffed with Game Day Fries (fries with BBQ pulled chicken, aged cheddar, sour cream, smoked bacon, and pickled peppers) – all precariously held together by a toasted bun.
The Smorgasbird is also the only sandwich of the month with a challenge component: attempt to finish the sandwich in under five minutes and encourage your friends to beat your time by sharing a photo or video on Instagram, tagging #Smorgasbird and @BlueRibbonFC, as well as one friend you wish to challenge. All participants are entered in a chance to win a free Hail Mary Platter from Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken, which includes 25 wings, 25 chicken tenders and one side – as well as the glory of having conquered the Smorgasbird!
For those who can’t fathom finishing The Smorgasbird in five minutes, the upside is that for every sandwich sold, $5 will be donated to the MS Society to help raise awareness for multiple sclerosis and support funding for research and treatment – it’s fried chicken with a cause.
The Smorgasbird will be available from July 1st – July 31st at both Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken New York City and Las Vegas in Downtown Summerlin for $15. Check back in next month for details on the August Sandwich of the Month!
