Chick-Fil-A Employees Reveal Their Dream Menu Items On Reddit

Do you ever wonder where your favorite fast-food item went, and why it decided to abandon you forever? Have you ever worked at a chain restaurant and made an off-menu mashup that you knew would be destined for greatness if they just decided to sell it? Chances are, employees of fast food restaurants know the limitations and possibilities of their ingredients better than anyone — and they're willing to tell us what they think.

Chick-fil-A workers aren't any different, and some decided to share on Reddit which menu items they'd like to see come back or created for the first time all together. The most buzzed-about suggestion was spicy nuggets and spicy items in general, which one Reddit user claimed were already being served at some locations (looks like spicy chicken strips, not nuggets, are available at some spots, according to Chick-fil-A). Another employee chimed in that the kitchens would have to be remodeled to make room for a spicy fryer and extra nugget chutes.

Suggestions from Chick-fil-A lovers for new and old items

Some suggestions weren't as realistic, like breakfast or Chick-n-Minis available all day. One Reddit user said that "minis are very tedious to prepare" and another speculated that breakfast items all day would slow orders down. Another user — possibly an employee — called for more burrito options. Multiple Reddit users who may have been customers asked to have Chick-fil-A's discontinued coleslaw back so they could pile it on their chicken sandwiches. There were calls from other users for cinnamon rolls, sweet potato fries, and even some particularly wild ideas from user lgodsey for items as far fetched (for Chick-fil-A, at least) as chicken Kiev, pita sandwiches, and satay chicken skewers with peanut sauce.

One user, PokenmonMaster2426, said what we were all thinking: "Yeah I think it would be cool if someone at corporate saw this post and what the people wanted :)" And while Chik-fil-A executives might not be lurking Reddit pages for inspiration, it's not unheard of for companies to ask employees and customers for menu inspiration. Dunkin' Donuts asked TikTok users for their favorite menu "hacks" in a competition that could get their invention on the menu. Starbucks even added a drink called the "medicine ball" to their menu after they took notice of customers ordering the custom lemony tea-mashup (via Fortune and Yahoo! News). The next fast-food sensation could truly be in your hands.
