The Chicken Strip Debacle!

I just finished listening to the investigation into the chicken strip debacle currently plaguing the boards. I want to thank you all for taking the time to look into this for us. I'll be at the world in a few weeks and plan on getting whatever information I can as well.

There is another thread going on right now where many people are already using the email mentioned in the show to voice complaints.

http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1727990

I'm hesitant to think that this change was a part of the trans-fat/healthy options issue and really feel it is something having to do with cost.

With all that said, I am definitely glad to hear that this is only the case at Magic Kingdom. I remember chewing on the strippy goodies as a child all the way into my adulthood. The spicy crunchyness is what makes a WDW strip a little piece of heaven. After losing 110 pounds this past year, I'm not so sure how many strips or nuggets or NIBBLETS I'll be eating, but I still wanted to inform others.

Thanks again, everybody!

I just discovered a thread on the restaurants board about the change from white to wheat rolls. I'm shocked it wasn't as big of a deal as this chicken strip debacle!

I know the whole trans fat thing is a supposed issue with the strips...then why does my bag of tysons chicken strip proudly promote "0 grams trans fat"?
