Chick-fil-A Just Brought Back This Popular Menu Item
It's not often that Chick-fil-A announces a major addition to its menu, but you're in luck because the fast-food chain is officially bringing back a seasonal treat by popular demand. What's more, sipping on this ice-cold drink will keep you cool for the summer.
Chick-fil-A delivered perhaps the first big surprise of the season when it unveiled the return of a "customer favorite": the Peach Milkshake. Starting today, June 14, the shake is available at participating restaurants nationwide for a limited time, while supplies last.
Chick-fil-A first introduced the Peach Milkshake in 2009, which the chain says has become "a sweet summer tradition for guests" in the more than a decade since. The hand-spun shake combines Chick-fil-A's vanilla Icedream dessert with peaches. The blend comes with whipped cream and a cherry on top (except for delivery orders, which omit both).
"We're excited to offer guests more variety on our menus this year, and that includes bringing back some of our seasonal favorites, like our Peach Milkshake," Beth Hefner from Chick-fil-A's menu development team says. "It's the little things like a cold treat on a warm day that makes summer so sweet, and this is one of the many reasons we are thrilled to welcome back this much-anticipated favorite."
We did a little sleuthing to find out the nutrition facts for the Peach Milkshake. According to Chick-fil-A's site, a 14.5-ounce serving has 600 calories, 100 grams of carbohydrates, 97 grams of sugar, and 18 grams of fat (including 11 grams of saturated fat and 0.5 grams of trans fat).
With that in mind, it would be smart to spread the love by sharing your Peach Milkshake with a family member or friend. Either way, be sure to balance the rest of your dietary intake for the day.
