McDonald's will be testing the Chicken McGriddle, a sandwich containing a fried chicken patty between two maple syrup-infused pancake buns, at 11 central Ohio restaurants, according to Columbus Business First.

“We’re always looking for new ways to offer relevant tastes to our customers,” McDonald’s Ohio region spokesperson Phil Saken told BuzzFeed. “As with all of our tests, we’re seeking customer feedback, and this region was selected to provide that valuable feedback in this case.”

The Chicken McGriddle is being tested at two price points – $1.49 and $2 – and is available at selected restaurants until March 27, according to the site.
