Chick-fil-A Teases Fans By Almost Bringing Back Iconic Spicy Chicken Biscuit

Chick-fil-A is out here breaking fans’ hearts with their newest item, as it comes ever so close to being a Spicy Chicken Biscuit… but falls just short.

Sure, you can argue that the difference between the OG Spicy Chicken Biscuit and this new Spicy Chicken Strip Biscuit is subtle, but come on, it’s just two strips inside of a biscuit.

It seems like a complete tease that Chick-fil-A would make something that not only looks, but tastes just like their coveted discontinued item, but is just so slightly different that it can’t be called the same thing.

Is this a sign that we’ll never get the fan-favorite item again? Perhaps, but at least this Spicy Chicken Strip Biscuit can provide some temporary, muted reprieve.

For those looking to get a hint of the beloved breakfast biscuit, you can find the chicken strip version of it at participating locations in Yuma, Phoenix, and Tucson, Arizona. It’s currently being tested in these locations alongside some other spicy sandwiches for a potential nationwide launch.


Chick-Fil-A’s New Egg White Sandwich Pissed Off Daym Drops

When Chick-Fil-A replaced it’s Spicy Chicken Biscuit for a healthier Egg White Grill, there was a bit of an uproar from fans, as they didn’t appreciate the menu change.

I’m sure they had their reasons, but it doesn’t mean we have to like those reasons.

YouTuber Daym Drops, the utmost authority on fast food reviews, got his hands on the Egg White Grill, and in his usual honest way, let us know that the sandwich was not a banger

His review started off promising, as the melted cheese looked like it was ready to be a part of something special, but all it took was one bite before Daym’s excitement turned into disappointment.

While Chick-Fil-A usually comes correct with their chicken sandwiches, Daym dubbed this one the, “Egg White Not Aite.”

He said it wasn’t even so much the egg white that ruined it, it was the grilled chicken that didn’t fit well.

I think it’s safe to say that Chick-Fil-A blew it by getting rid of the Spicy Chicken Biscuit. Not only did they get rid of a fan favorite, but they replaced it with something that’s not Daym Drops approved, and that might be the biggest “tell” of all.

Chick-fil-A Raked in the Dough in 2011

Chick-fil-A exceeded the $4 billion mark in 2011 sales. A 13.08 percent increase from 2010, CFA is increasing its sales and giving cows across the country a little hope.

CFA, the originators of the chicken sandwich, also generated a 7 percent same-store sales increase, its 44th consecutive year of sales growth.

The overall growth was generated from several advancements in 2011 such as: introducing the Chick-Fil-A Spicy Chicken Biscuit and Multigrain Oatmeal to its breakfast menu, the opening of 92 new restaurant locations— surpassing the 1,600 mark, and marketing strategies that included a Breakfast Variety Giveaway promotion, giving out more than 830,000 breakfast entrees, and its annual Cow Appreciation Day where nearly 600,000 customers dressed as crazed human-cows received a free meal for their effort.

Its recognition by the Zagat National Fast Food Survey as one of the “Top Large Chains,” and title of Consumer Reports’ “Top Chicken Chain” shows that CFA is only getting more serious about its poultry dreams.

So what’s on tap for 2012? An estimated job increase of 7,000 employees, the opening of another 92 restaurants, (including more on-campus locations) and new menu items in the form of grilled chicken nuggets, warm chocolate chunk cookies, fudge brownies and sundaes.

As long as it can stay away from nugget-stuffing, collapsing teenagers, 2012 looks bright for the chicken-wielding restaurant.
