Oh, the Horror! Chick-fil-A Discontinues Popular Menu Item, But There’s a Positive Twist

Along with the delicious Chick-fil-A menu items that compliment their legendary chicken sandwiches and waffle fries is their “to die for” cole slaw, which is a favorite of many — including this writer. Include some of Chick-fil-A’s lemonade and yum — now I’m getting hungry.

Anyhow, back to the beloved cole slaw, which Chick-fil-A has had on their menu for nearly half a century — 49 years.

Chick-fil-A announced an “Ode to Cole Slaw,” on New Year’s Eve, telling customers that on January 18th, their cole slaw “will be gone but never forgotten.”

Fortunately, to ward off outrage from customers who are loyal to the product, the popular chicken chain announced the release of the Chick-fil-A cole slaw recipe for all to enjoy, so when you’re getting that craving, you can make it yourself:

In announcing the move of the removal of the popular side item, Chick-fil-A produced the following video, appropriately titled, “A Farewell to Chick-fil-A Cole Slaw”:

A perusal of Twitter revealed that the move is being met with some resistance:

And just when you thought 2016 was going to be a better year than 2015:

Hilariously, another customer blamed the decision on the…SEC?

While another tweep basically told people to chill out:

While not everyone is happy with the decision, obviously, it will be interesting to try the replacement after January 18. After that, it’s reassuring to know that we can still enjoy the famous Chick-fil-A cole slaw at home, even on Sunday when the popular chicken chain is closed.
