I mean it's not like it's the Spicy Chicken Sandwich, but I've eaten my share of them at Chick-fil-A's in Dallas, TX, and across The Lone Star State, and I've gotta say it seems like a strange item to remove from menus.

UPDATE: Due to public outcry, Chick-fil-A will NOT be discontinuing the popular side item.

And there are already several online dissenters:


The company did say that they are "always innovating to find the next favorite menu items and are working on some new ideas." It does seem like a strange item to discontinue, but I suppose we'll see what they've got for us soon.
