Mar. 12—Dunkin's got a new menu item but it's only available at Massachusetts and New Hampshire locations, and it won't last long.

Dunkin' announced its Chicken Croissant Sandwich as one of multiple new menu items this spring. Although, it's only available in the two states for a limited time, Dunkin' said in a statement.

It's described as "fried chicken, cherrywood smoked bacon, and American cheese served on a warm, flaky croissant."

Other new menu items, include grilled cheese, avocado toast and the company's version of sweet cold foam.

The avocado toast is on sourdough bread and topped with everything bagel seasoning. It's also served in a special portable box, "perfect to help guests enjoy avocado anywhere they'd like," the company said.

It also recently teamed up with Frankford Candy to release Dunkin' iced coffee flavored jelly beans just in time for Easter.

Each bag contains five flavors inspired by Dunkin's signature iced coffee, including French Vanilla, Caramel Latte, Butter Pecan, Toasted Coconut, and Hazelnut, the company said.

The company did not state how long its Chicken Croissant Sandwich will be at Massachusetts locations. It is, however, among a growing line of chicken sandwiches from fast food restaurants.

At least seven other fast-food chains have experimented with or released chicken sandwiches recently, according to Insider.

The rush from these chains came after Popeyes viral chicken sandwich.

"When Popeyes launched their chicken sandwich in late 2019, it created a lot of buzz and excitement that fueled a lot of the other brands to look at their own chicken platforms and make a judgment on their offerings," former McDonald's chef Mike Haracz told Insider. "When anything like that happens, other chains' main objective is to get a piece of that share."

But if you want to give Dunkin's a try, you better start checking out nearby locations.

"Chicken sandwich lovers in Massachusetts and New Hampshire should head to their nearest Dunkin' soon," the company said.
