“The Buffalo Ranch Chicken Sandwich is made special by an all-new sauce, featuring a creamy buttermilk ranch, kicked up with a zesty and buttery buffalo sauce.

It feels like we might be reaching the end of the line when it comes to chicken sandwiches and twists, with many brands now seemingly making only modest tweaks and changes like this.
