Chick-fil-A is condensing their menu a bit. The company said in a statement, “Later this spring, we will remove two items from the national menu, the bagel and decaf hot coffee, as well as consolidate several of our size offerings.”
The statement continued, “Streamlining our menu will allow for us to continue providing our customers the quality food and service they’ve come to expect, as well as make room for new future menu items.”
According to TODAY, there will also be some downsizing of regular menu items: The chicken nuggets kid’s meal will only be offered as a five-count (an average of the current options of four or six nuggets) and milkshake, coffee and ice cream cone sizes will also be pared down.
In January 2020, before the pandemic reached the U.S., Chick-fil-A announced the first of these menu changes to make way for some hot new items. The change started in select test markets in Charlotte, North Carolina and several restaurants throughout Arizona, where they axed six mainstay items, including the sausage and egg biscuit, sunflower multigrain bagels, side salads, decaf coffee, the Grilled Cool Wrap and Original Chick-n-Strips.
In their place, Spicy Chick-n-Strips, Grilled Spicy Deluxe Sandwich and the Spicy Chick-n-Strips Biscuit were added to the regional menus.
