Friend in SoCal was part of test market area, received coupon in mail to try for free.  She of the iron tongue sez it was way, way too spicy, described it as "eating chicken encrusted in fiery hot cheetos X 100."  I'm anxious to see if they toned it down after the initial try.  Will find out next week!

Hopefully it's not going to be that kind of fake bright orange like the spicy Cheetos.

They chose a good time to give away a free sandwich.  After my last few times there I wouldn't have paid to test them again, but I'll gladly test my free sandwich next week and see if they redeem themselves.

Its funny you mention that, I went to a Chick Fil A on my road travels one day a week or so ago and I got a really bad sandwich, it was just like you described before: bad & soggy.  I did go at a very busy time so I have no doubt the sandwiches were cooked way ahead of time and sitting in bags just waiting to be tossed out the drive-thru window.

I tried the spicy Chick-Fil-A tonight and found it to have a little zing, especially after the first bite, it tended to ling in the back of my mouth for a while. I complete the comparison with a regular sandwich which I doused with Texas Pete, supplied by the store, and found that the spicy lingered just a little bit longer than the altered sandwich. Is it worth the additional .14, dunno, I'll try another one on Wednesday .

Oy, Cal you have it so tough!!

I wouldn't call it spicy but it did have decent flavor.  And mine had 3, count them, 3 pickle slices!  When I asked for a water to go with my sandwich the lady behind the counter said "You'll need something to drink with it!"  I asked if that was because it was spicy or salty.  "Spicy", she says.  I saw the general manager handing out spicy chicken sandwiches to a few customers.  The location I went to becam a zoo at about 12:10.  I didn't realize that many people went to Chick-fil-A.  That's probably the 4th time I've ever been in one and probably the last.

Agreed.  It is spicy enough to notice but not overpowering.  There is an earthy flavor of some sort that is in the background but I couldn't quite pin it down.  I almost wanted to think it was cumin but who knows.

Despite my recent experiences I actually expected to like the spicy sandwich.  Good thing it was free.  It was soggy and I wouldn't have known it was supposed to be spicy if it didn't say.  It just tasted a little dirty.  I generally respect the opinions of lots of people here who like CFA, love good fried food and don't have that skeeze issue that Kessler has, so I don't really understand the disconnect.  Without even getting into the specifics of how this sandwich was spiced, it just doesn't seem like well prepared food to me.

Fast food.  Not Bacchanalia.

Now they shouldn't be soggy (mine wasn't and they VERY rarely are) and food safety rules aside, but you can't expect high school kids on summer jobs to be preparing your food with the utmost care.
