It seems by now just about every fast food chain has released their own version of a fried chicken sandwich or spicy chicken sandwich.

But even with all these options, the chicken sandwich wars wage on.

Arby's is now stepping into the ring with a chicken sandwich so spicy, it comes with a free 12-ounce vanilla milkshake on the side to tame the heat.

Starting this week, Arby’s will add the new “Diablo Dare” sandwich to the menu for a limited time. The sandwich has five sources of spice, such as a layer of ghost pepper jack cheese, fiery hot seasoning, fire-roasted jalapenos, and a special BBQ sauce all wedged between a red chipotle bun.

Customers have the option to choose between a crispy chicken patty or smoked brisket.

"This is not a sandwich for the faint of heart," said Patrick Schwing, chief marketing officer of Arby's, in a release, per CNN. "Everyone in the quick service restaurant industry says they have a spicy option, but our research tells us that consumers are disappointed by fast food claims of spicy."

The sandwich, dubbed the "spiciest sandwich on the market," will be available until February 6.
