KFC has decided to shake things up by removing five fan-favorite items from their menu. The fast Food chain is saying goodbye to Kentucky fried chicken wings, Nashville hot sauce, strawberry lemonade, chocolate chip cookies, and popcorn chicken in an effort to streamline their menu and make room for new items.

The decision to remove the items was made after KFC gathered data on which items performed well in sales. Brittany Wilson, KFC U.S. Director, told USA Today that the items were not available at every location, making it easier to remove them from the menu.

However, KFC is not completely getting rid of popcorn chicken. While the Popcorn Chicken Combo, which includes a small popcorn chicken, small fries, and a drink, will be removed, KFC is keeping the little mouth-poppers in store for KFC Famous Bowls.

In place of the removed items, KFC is testing new items, such as chicken wraps. One version is a chicken tender wrapped in a flour tortilla with pickles and mayonnaise, while the other comes with coleslaw, pickles, and a “spicy sauce.” KFC began scaling back the removed items in November and by next month, they will be hard to find as KFC is intent on testing more new foods in the spring.

KFC is owned by Yum! Brands, which also owns Taco Bell, The Habit Burger Grill, Pizza Hut, and more. While some fans of the fast Food chain will be upset that some of their favorite items are leaving the menu, KFC is hoping that the new items will be just as popular.
