I wanted to bring this up here because I know that many of you can identify with my sadness. Many of you probably have heard that today is “Dress Like a Cow Day” at Chick Fil-A”. It seems to be all over Facebook and twitter with folks sharing their cute cow costumes. If you dress up like a cow you can eat for free at Chick Fil-A.
Free food(especially yummy food like Chick Fil-A) is usually very well received in my family and we’d typically be the first in line.
The Reason? Peanut Oil
Yes, Chick Fil-A fries their chicken in Peanut Oil, and given that 2 of my kid’s can’t even smell the stuff we have to stay away from one of the most awesome fast food restaurants ever. It’s a major bummer! I do love Chick Fil-A, however, I love my food allergy kiddos more so I think we’ve made the right decision to stay away.
Please understand, I am so happy for the people who are blessed to be able to enjoyone of the best chicken sandwiches/nuggets/strips ever. I also do not fault them for using Peanut Oil. It apparently makes for some delicious chicken, and they probably shouldn’t change a thing.
Please just humor me as I mourn the loss of one of my favorite restaurants which we haven’t eaten at in over 8 years. That is all.
