In fast-food places, you either get the same thing every time or try something new and take advantage of brief specials. If you're the latter, you prefer to investigate your alternatives.
But limited-time products can break our hearts when they're gone. Sometimes you try copycat recipes to recreate the experience.
Look at the Chick-fil-A products we miss. The Chicken Salad sandwich was removed in 2017 to make room for new menu items.
Chicken Quesadilla was abandoned because it took too long to prepare.
Chick-fil-A periodically brings back past menu items for lucky fans. For seasonal reasons or because buyers adore it, certain limited-time-only goods are produced again.
For those who prefer to spice up their sandwiches, Chick-fil-A is bringing back a fan-favorite dish for fall.
On September 12, the Grilled Spicy Deluxe Sandwich returns for a limited period. "While supplies last," this sandwich will be offered at all Chick-fil-A locations in the U.S.
The sandwich debuted in limited places a few years ago and went national in 2021. The sandwich's marinade is the same as the Spicy Chicken Sandwich.
The sandwich's reappearance comes after much opposition. A Chang.org petition aimed to save the sandwich. Reddit commenters applauded the sandwich's taste and heat.
Not American spicy, it was hot. In addition to the Grilled Spicy Deluxe Sandwich, Chick-fil-A has a new Autumn Spice milkshake with vanilla ice cream, cinnamon, and brown sugar.
