Time to ring in October in the best way possible by getting your hands on some secret menu loaded chips from Nando’s.

Between the return of Bunnings sausage sizzle to the appearance of gingerbread biscuit chocolate blocks, it’s shaping up to be a nice few weeks for foodies.

Well thanks to Nando’s, it’s just gone from good to great because the fast food joint has launched its new ‘secret menu’ item: the mouthwatering Loaded Chips.

For just $9, you can load up on this special new menu item that combines Nando’s signature peri-peri chips with – wait for it – grilled capsicum, tomato and onion in basting of your choice, a generous dollop of creamy aioli, smoky capsicum relish, and finally, some feta cheese to top it all off.

Yes, it is definitely mouthwatering stuff and you’ll need a napkin for all that drool.

If you’re feeling even more adventurous, you can turn this decadent side dish into your main meal for an extra dollarydoos.

For $13, you can throw in some grilled peri-peri chicken tenders or a Superfood Veggie Patty.

Now as it is with all things related to great food, there’s a catch to this new secret menu item from Nando’s.

To get your hands on this mouthwatering dish, you’ll need to join the Peri-Perks Club, which is the restaurant chain’s rewards program.

Luckily for you, it’s free to join and a membership will get you some pretty cool members-only stuff like special menu offers (like the Loaded Chips), a points scheme, and birthday freebies.

So if you want to order yourself some Loaded Fries and put yourself into a food coma, you’ll have to either order it off the Nando’s app, online, or in person.

Don’t wait too long though because these Loaded Fries are only available until Wednesday, November 1st, so best get ordering.

If you need an extra incentive, the Nando’s app is doing free delivery until Sunday, October 4th, which is pretty damn good timing.
