5 Beloved Menu Items from Chick-Fil-A That Have Gone Away Forever

We never even had a chance to try the chain's quesadilla.

Some things are eternal fixtures on the Chick-fil-A menu, like sweet tea and the classic chicken sandwich. But not everything the fast-food chain has debuted over the years has made the cut. From quesadillas to a cranberry-orange bagel, some Chick-fil-a items have gone the way of the dinosaur. Others, like the peach milkshake or the peppermint milkshake, return seasonally and disappear for the rest of the year.

If you're ready to reminisce about some of the Chick-fil-A items of yore, we have you covered. Here are some discontinued Chick-fil-A menu items, straight from the restaurant's Chicken Wire blog.

Before the Grilled Cool Wrap, Chick-fil-A had this flatbread wrap. As The Chicken Wire explains, the rosemary garlic sandwich was tested in Myrtle Beach, Orlando, and Memphis, but it wasn't popular enough to make it to nationwide menus.

The Burger King Cini Minis. The McDonald's cinnamon melts. The classic Cinnabon rolls. Fast-food restaurants have long flirted with sweet, cinnamon-flavored offerings, and Chick-fil-A is no exception. The chain tested cinnamon rolls, made from the chain's biscuit dough, in select cities. But it proved too time-consuming to make these cinnamon biscuits regularly, so they didn't make Chick-fil-A's permanent menu.

Chick-fil-A already has chicken and cheese from its other recipes, so why not combine those into quesadillas? The restaurant tried to make it work, but the quesadillas took too long to make for them to be a feasible part of the chicken chain's menu.

Chick-fil-A has a chicken, egg, and cheese bagel on the menu. But at one point, the chain considered adding a square-shaped cranberry orange bagel to the mix, too. Sadly, the inventive flavor never took off.

When Chick-fil-A took oatmeal off the menu in 2016, it bid farewell with a memorial video. Its memory lives on.
