Chick-Fil-A Released Its Coleslaw Recipe (Just In Case You Miss It)

Chick-Fil-A has ruffled some of its loyal customers' feathers by removing, or not bringing back some fan-favorite items. Back in 2017, the chain discontinued the fresh chicken salad sandwich, much to the disappointment of fans who enjoyed the non-fried and fresh item. In an effort to soothe fans' woes, Chick-Fil-A did publish the exact recipe on its website, where it lives on in perpetuity. Only OG Chick-Fil-A patrons will remember the chain's lemon pie that was removed from menus in 2012. Even though dedicated fans petitioned to bring it back, the pie is only available at the original Chick-Fil-A location in Georgia.

One of the discontinued items that hurt the most was the removal of the coleslaw. Chick-Fil-A's coleslaw was removed from menus in 2012, but customers made sure to share their displeasure on social media for years after its removal. There was even a petition to bring back the coleslaw. Even though it's been over 10 years, Chick-Fil-A finally released the exact recipe for the coleslaw. The chain acknowledged that making it at home isn't the same as getting it in the store, but hopes the recipe will satisfy cravings. Customers were quick to share their thoughts on the Facebook post.

Customers are not backing down

We can thank Chick-Fil-A's Carrolton, Georgia branch for sharing the recipe for the company's coleslaw recipe. Several people commented that the appeal of the coleslaw was that they did not need to make it themselves. Other people commented asking for Chick-Fil-A to bring back summer seasonal items like the lemon pie, as well as the chicken salad sandwich. The original location of Chick-Fil-A does still have coleslaw on the menu if you happen to be nearby and the craving hits. Even though corporate will not be bringing back the coleslaw, the powers that be have previously listened to customer's requests before axing a product.

When Chick-Fil-A originally announced it would be removing the side salad, the customer outcry was so strong, the chain reversed course and announced it was here to stay. Sadly, the other salads like coleslaw, Asian salad, and carrot raisin salad couldn't be saved. At least customers know that when Chick-Fil-A decides to remove an item, it's to simplify the menu and make the best experience for customers.
