Confused about which milkshake flavor to get when you’re at Chick-fil-A? here’s a quick primer so you have a clearer idea of your options!
Let’s start with an all-time classic, as there’s no way that any fast-food place would omit the iconic chocolate flavor from the milkshake list. There will always be fans for whom the chocolate milkshake is always the best. It’s comforting and it always tastes great.
Sure, it’s not exactly an adventurous option. But if you’re not sure about which milkshake flavor to get, then just get the chocolate flavor. You’ll always be in the mood for one of these great treats. Chocolate goes well with just about any dish on the Chick-fil-A menu, and its taste makes the visit to the place a real treat.
Or, you can just get the chocolate milkshake even without the chicken and fries. It makes for a nice snack on its own.
This rivals chocolate as the “best” and most iconic milkshake flavor of all time. Again, it’s not really what you might call an exciting flavor. That’s why every boring option is called the “vanilla” choice.
But then again, there’s simply no way for Chick-fil-A to not offer vanilla. The boring choice is also generally the safe choice for many fans. Even those who don’t really order the 4-dollar vanilla milkshake will be discomfited to know if it’s no longer available. That’s just plain wrong. It has to be there, for times when you just want a good flavor that you’re absolutely certain will taste right when you get it.
Some people might call this a classic flavor, although it’s not quite as iconic as chocolate or vanilla. But it’s a very popular option, and it’s one classic fruity taste that plenty of people love. It’s not quite as boring, and the fruitiness makes for a nice change. It almost seems like a healthy option as well.
This is one of those milkshakes that’s a good enough reason on its own to visit Chick-fil-A. Just get one in the middle of the afternoon. Regardless of the season, you’ll feel better afterwards.
This is a seasonal option that’s usually only available during the summer. Order one peach milkshake and the heat doesn’t feel as bad. You relax and destress as you finish it.
The taste isn’t all that boring either, especially as you can’t enjoy it at other times of the year. You get tiny bits of peach in the milkshake, and the flavor is very different than the rest of the milkshake options.
You really owe it to yourself to enjoy a peach milkshake at least once during the summer. Then once you taste it, you’ll want to get it again. And you’ll hate how it won’t be available for the rest of the year.
Cookies and Cream
This is a chocolatey flavor that’s not quite as boring as plain old chocolate, at least for its many fans. It actually combines vanilla ice cream with crumpled bits of chocolate cookies. Hey, if the flavor works for ice cream, then it definitely works for milkshakes.
This is one of the most popular options here. However, some people complain that Chick-fil-A ought to put in more of the cookies. Still, for others the amount of cookie bits is just right.
You’d think that with its peppermint-y flavor, this would be a truly refreshing option for the summer. But no, this is actually a seasonal flavor that’s reserved for the winter season. In fact, some people associate the appearance of the peppermint chip milkshake flavor in the Chick-fil-A menu as the first real sign of the coming holiday season.
Kids love this flavor, although for adults, it can get a little tiresome after a while. That’s why you shouldn’t really order this flavor every day. But do enjoy it while the holiday season lasts. When the holiday season is over and the peppermint chip flavor is no longer available, you’ll definitely miss it.
Okay, admittedly this is a rather unconventional flavor. Most people don’t immediately associate the frosted lemonade flavor with milkshakes.
But you should give it a try anyway. Those who are a bit more adventurous who have tried it will tell you that you won’t regret it. It might seem strange that it combines the basic vanilla ice cream with the lemon citrus flavor, but somehow, it works.
This is an adventuresome option that doesn’t actually come with any serious risk. Sure, it’s new and strange for some people. But it goes great with the chicken.
You’ve got the vanilla ice cream with the coffee flavor, and that’s just right. If you’re looking for your cold fix of sweet caffeine, just go to Chick-fil-A instead of getting an overpriced alternative from other places. Grab one on your way to work, or when you’re taking a break.
Have fun, and enjoy the milkshake!
