WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - Chick-fil-A is removing cole slaw from its menu in mid-January to make way for a new item, according to the fast-food chain.
Fans of the side dish have flooded social media with complaints about the change.
“Removing Cole Slaw from the menu was a difficult decision. We know many of our customers loved our Cole Slaw, yet we have also heard from our customers that they are looking for new tastes and healthier ways to eat in our restaurants,” Chick-fil-A said in a statement.
The new menu item will be a kale side salad, according to a New Jersey location, which posted the cole slaw recipe on Facebook for fans.
