Some Breakfast Options Missing
If Chick-fil-A is your breakfast destination of choice, you'll soon find some options missing from the morning menu. The company recently confirmed it will be getting rid of bagels and decaf hot coffee as it streamlines menu options in the coming months. However, you may be happy to know that contrary to popular belief, the chain is still serving this beloved breakfast item, rumored to have been discontinued in 2016.
Fewer Size Options
Streamlining the menu also means rethinking the sizes of several items. Starting sometime this spring, the Nuggets Kid's Meal, which currently comes with four or six pieces of chicken, will only be available in a five-piece option, while various sizes of coffee drinks, ice cream cones, and milkshakes will also be narrowed down.
A New Dessert Option
The Chocolate Fudge Brownie joined the treat section of the menu last fall. This new dessert features rich semisweet chocolate melted into the batter along with fudgy chunks. They come individually wrapped and can be purchased separately or by the tray.
