Brace yourselves Nando’s addicts, Christmas has come early this year thanks to the new Truffle and Bacon classic.

That’s right, Nando’s has branched out into the wonderful world of truffle, and we’re more than a little excited about it.

The decidedly decadent flavour pairs truffle aioli with crispy bacon, along with Nando’s signature PERI-PERI chicken, tomato, lettuce and cheese.

The combo can be enjoyed in either a burger, wrap or pita, and also comes with your choice of side.

At $12 a pop, it’s surely got to be the cheapest truffle-themed feed on the market.

Nando’s Head of Food Mario Manabe explained that they are looking forward to bringing truffle to the masses, since plenty of people are still new to the treat.

“Truffles are affectionately known as the diamond of the kitchen… the earthiness of the truffle aioli pairs really well with our signature PERi-PERi flavour, and there’s a nice richness that comes through when you tuck in,” Manabe said.

He continued: “We love experimenting with exciting flavour combinations and truffle and bacon is a welcome flavour profile. While we know bacon is a much-loved burger ingredient, many people are relatively new to truffle. The two balance each other out perfectly. The Truffle & Bacon Classic really is the perfect introduction for truffle newbies and fanatics alike.”

While the flavour is only available until Sunday, December 6th, Manabe revealed that we may just see truffle pop up on the menu again.

“We’re looking to expand our range of hugely popular chip dips next year, so this is an awesome chance for us to put truffle aioli to the test. If it’s a hit, we may add it to the lineup!” he said.
