Cole slaw, the Spicy Chicken Biscuit, and the Breakfast Burrito -- these are a few of the foods Chick-fil-A has discontinued in recent years to make way for all-new menu items like the Superfood salad side, the Egg White Grill sandwich, and recently, the Hash Brown Scramble breakfast bowl. Now, it's time to start preparing to say goodbye to another old favorite: the Chicken Salad sandwich.
Chick-fil-A said its days of offering the classic sandwich will officially come to an end at its restaurants across the country on September 30 and the decision to kill off the menu item was "a difficult one." However, there's a chance the sandwich will be replaced by a completely new food on the menu at some point in the future, so its sacrifice may just be worth it.
"We know that many of our customers loved our Chicken Salad, but we have also heard from guests that they are looking for new tastes and fresh flavors on the menu in our restaurants," a Chick-fil-A spokesperson said vie email on Friday. Just last month, the chicken sandwich chain announced it is testing family-size meals, including new sides such as Mac and Cheese and Bacon Baked Beans.
