The Chick-Fil-A Side That Made History
By CHASE SHUSTACK
Compared to other fast food restaurants, Chick-fil-A is one of the healthiest quick-service restaurants, featuring a wide variety of healthy menu items. This focus on health makes a particular Chick-fil-A side order truly remarkable, especially in the fast food industry.
Chick-fil-A’s healthy fruit cup is made with chopped red and green apples, mandarin oranges, strawberries, and blueberries. Available at every Chick-fil-A location, the fruit cup, no matter how mundane, is a very important step for fast food companies in providing healthier choices.
In a 2016 press release, the chain claimed to be the first fast food restaurant to have ever offered such a side. Chick-fil-A also announced back in 2008 that they had completely cut trans fat from their menu, so much so that they changed their biscuit recipe to remove all trans fat.
