Chick-fil-a Coleslaw side item has been discontinued. If you are among the millions with a passion for Chick-fil-A’s incredible coleslaw, you will have to make it yourself. As of January 18, 2016, the national chain Atlanta-based fast food company has dropped it’s cole slaw side item as part of a move to add more variety to their menu.
“We know many of our customers love our Cole Slaw, yet we have also heard from them they are looking for new tastes and healthier ways to eat in our restaurants,” Chick-fil-a said in a statement one New Year’s Eve 2016.
The distinctive coleslaw will remain on the menu at only the 13 Atlanta area in the Dwarf House restaurants, from which founder S. Truett Cathy grew into the national fast food Chick-fil-A chain.
Don’t fret; you can still have the great cole slaw, but you have to make it at home yourself. The company decided to publish the recipe for the first time so that bereft customers (including myself) can make the coleslaw at home. They have replaced it with a super-food salad. This a rather small, and in my opinion, tasteless replacement consisting of a “Chopped Broccolini® and kale blend, tossed in a sweet and tangy maple vinaigrette dressing and topped with flavorful dried sour cherries. Served with a roasted nut blend.”
