    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.

    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. ;) :lmao: 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"?
