Chick-fil-A testing removing original Chick-n-Strips, grilled cool wrap; adding new spicy items

The menu changes are being tested out in Charlotte.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Eat more (spicy) chicken: The new year is bringing some changes to Chick-fil-A's menu in the Queen City. 

Starting January 13, the popular chicken restaurant will be serving up three new spicy offerings as part of a test in the Charlotte and Arizona markets this month. Chick-fil-A announced they will introduce Spicy Chick-n-Strips, the Grilled Spicy Deluxe Sandwich and the Spicy Chick-n-Strips Biscuit as part of the new test menu. 

Each item is made from Chick-fil-A's signature grilled or hand-breaded chicken and seasoned with a spicy blend of peppers. 

Some familiar menu items will be saying goodbye as part of the test. Breakfast items that are changing include the sausage biscuit and the Sunflower Multigrain Bagel. Chick-fil-A's original Chick-n-Strips will also say farewell, along with the grilled cool wrap and a side salad. Decaf coffee will no longer be offered at Charlotte Chick-fil-A restaurants, and all milkshakes, iced coffees, and frosted beverages will be offered in 16-ounce sizes only. 

“We have received positive feedback from customers on our spicy menu items,” said Matt Reed, manager of menu development at Chick-fil-A. “We can’t wait to hear what customers in the Charlotte area think of these new spicy offerings.”
