Chick-fil-A—the beloved, Atlanta, Georgia-based fast-casual chain—has been slinging the same fried chicken sandwiches for roughly five decades. But more recently, as the company has expanded out of the South into cities like New York and San Francisco, troubling changes have started to pop-up on the menu.
While shifts have been as serious as discontinuing its legendary spicy chicken biscuit, and introducing kale and quinoa-packed grain bowls, one of the first signs of trouble was a new “twist” the chain made to its original barbecue sauce recipe.
For months, Chick-fil-A fanatics have been begging for an end to this madness, and this week the company finally acquiesced to their demands. In a video posted to YouTube on Tuesday, Chick-fil-A employees could be seen reading tweets from disgruntled customers—à la Jimmy Kimmel’s “Mean Tweets” segments—before the chain announced that the original packets would be returning to stores in November.
And as venomous as the response was this summer when the recipe was first changed, Twitter was overjoyed in the wake of the announcement, celebrating the return of its beloved BBQ.
Now we just need to Chick-fil-a to bring back the spicy chicken biscuit, and all will be right in the world.
