Arguably the best menu item Chick-Fil-A has to offer, will no longer exist, as the Spicy Chicken Biscuit is being replaced with their new Egg White Grill.
The Egg White Grill looks like it was specifically designed for hippies and cross-fitters, and features a grilled chicken breast, grilled egg whites, American cheese and will be sandwiched between a multigrain English muffin.
Chick-fil-A Introduces New, Protein-Packed Egg White Grill Breakfast Sandwich https://t.co/FMLYUije9Q pic.twitter.com/xvulGgJ7z3— Chick-fil-A News (@ChickfilANews) July 18, 2016
It's only 300 calories and has 25 grams of protein, which is great news for the bros at the gym, trying to make some gains, but the rest of us are losing out on the spicy goodness that took Chick-Fil-A's breakfast to the next level.
It's understandable to add a healthier menu item, but why did this have to be an "either, or" situation. Their on-the-spot response is less than satisfactory, too:

If the Spicy Chicken Biscuit wasn't selling well, it was probably by accident and we should have gotten a bit of warning. I'm not the only one who thinks so, either. Check out some of the Twitter reactions, already:

.@ChickfilA my wife is NOT happy about the loss of the spicy chicken biscuit. It was the only breakfast item she ordered.

Worst case of the Mondays, Ever
I knew my Monday was going to be bad when I couldn't get my spicy chicken biscuit this morning. #cravingdenied ? @ChickfilA— Callie Williams (@calsloann) July 18, 2016
Let's Make This Happen
. @ChickfilA cancelling the spicy chicken biscuit is a crime and the person who proposed this idea should be taken to trial

Hopefully Chick-Fil-A will hear our cries and collective anger and bring back the biscuit. We can't even give the new Egg White Grill a fair shake, because the anger won't allow it. It's probably really delicious, but I won't care unless the Spicy Chicken Biscuit gets the justice it deserves.
Can we get a hashtag going? Maybe, #freethespicychickenbiscuit?
Please, just bring it back, Chick-Fil-A. You don't need more hate in your life.
