Are you a Chick-Fil-A fan?

My whole family are big fans of Chick-Fil-A.

They probably have tried every single item on their menu.

They recently opened up in a town close to my house. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get there and you won’t believe how long the drive threw wait can be. We sat there 45 minutes one time and the shortest amount of time was an off time in the afternoon at 3 o’clock that was about 15 minutes.

A friend of mine said she sat on the line for over an hour. She said she stopped counting when it hit an hour.

Funny thing is, when we waited the 45 minutes and then ate in the car while the sandwiches were nice and hot, my husband said, “This was worth the time we sat and waited” Of course my son chimed in and agreed. Okay, yes it was worth the time. I mean, no one makes waffle fries like Chick-Fil-Lay.

Now, this recipe for Chick-Fil-A coleslaw was a staple on their menu from when they opened in 1946. It was called a different name up until the fast food restaurant was rebranded and renamed to Chick-Fil-A in 1967. So, what I was told is the coleslaw was one of their most popular side dishes but, in 2016 things changed.

They decided to take the coleslaw off the menu and bring on some different side dishes.

On January 17, 2016 was the last day their coleslaw was served.

As of January 18, 2016 it was officially off the menu in everyone of Chick-Fil-A restaurants around the country. So many people were on social media complaining. 

There is a positive note about the coleslaw. Chick-Fil-A did such a nice thing for all the people that loved their coleslaw. They gave out the recipe. Since they have said this menu item will not be back. So now we can all make this delicious recipe at home and no one will miss out on the best coleslaw.
