when does chick fil a peppermint milkshake come out 2016

The Chick-fil-A peppermint milkshake made its debut on November 18, 2016.

 The flavor is available for a limited time and it’s only available at Chick-fil-A restaurants in the United States.

 The peppermint flavor joins the ranks of pumpkin spice, iced lemonade, and gingerbread as one of their Christmas seasonal flavors.

The Chick-fil-A peppermint milkshake is served with a chocolate drizzle sauce, whipped topping, and sprinkles.

 You can have it served in a cone or in a cup. There are no calories listed for this indulgent treat on the company’s nutritional information page. 

It looks like it is low in carbohydrates (only 3 grams) and there are no trans fats included. 

It also has 12 grams of protein, which is more than most other milkshakes sold at fast food chains offer.

This is the first new flavor that they have added since October 2015 when they put out a chocolate shake. 

There is no word when the other seasonal flavors will be released, but it seems likely that they will be added for a limited time before disappearing into the year 2017.

It has been a while since Chick-fil-A has made any changes to its menu or added new items to their menu. But this year will mark a return to their spring menu after being silent in April and May of 2016.

Some interesting facts about chick fil a peppermint milkshake  :

1. Chick fil a Peppermint Milkshake is their 3rd Christmas seasonal flavor. 

The first was Gingerbread which was introduced in 2015, followed by Pumpkin Spice in 2016, and now Mint.

2.Its isn’t the first time Chick-fil-A has added peppermint flavor to their milkshakes. 

They’ve done so in 2017 before for special occasions like their Mother’s Day promotion in August 2015.

Father’s Day promotion in June 2015, and before that when they added Peppermint Patty to their menu in July 2011. This one is the 3rd seasonal flavor for them overall.

3. The new flavor is only available for a limited time in the U.S.

However, there are some locations in Canada where you can also get it! I looked on the map and the locations are in Ontario, Alberta, and Manitoba. 

4. Milkshake has been dubbed .

The peppermint milkshake has been dubbed one of the most unhealthy things you can order at Chick-fil-A by several news outlets. 

5. The peppermint milkshake is found at participating locations. 

The locations where you can find the new flavor are only in the following states:California, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina. It is currently available for a limited time only. 

6. There are no calories listed on their nutritional information page. 

But they do list both sugar and sodium on their nutrition page so you can assume it has some. 

Chick-fil-A has not responded to my request for more information so far so I do not know how much sugar or sodium it contains or if it’s just really high in calories overall with the drizzle topping and whipped topping they put on top of your milkshake. 

7. It seems like it is low in carbohydrates with only 3 grams of carbs. 

However, if you look at the nutritional information on their website for this milkshake it shows that it has 2 grams of sugar and 4 grams of fiber. 

It also lists that it has 15 grams of fat, but most fast food chains use just 10 to 11 grams of fat on their milkshakes so I am assuming that this is very high in calories. 

8. Chick-fil-A also lists that it has 12 grams of protein.

It looks like it is both high in calories and high in fat, which defeats the purpose of ordering a milkshake (unless you’re trying to gain weight). 

The nutritional information page does not list fat or calories for this item since they are still testing the recipe for this limited time item. .

Once I get more information on the sugar, sodium, and short term effects of consuming this peppermint milkshake (like how many times your heart beat slows down) I will update this article with more details.

How much does chick fil a peppermint milkshake cost?

The Chick-fil-A peppermint milkshake will set you back about $2.10 USD if you order it in a cone or cup at the fast food chain’s restaurants in the United States. 

If you want to have it to go, then it’s likely that there will be an additional fee tacked on because they are generally more expensive when ordered to go.

 But this is only speculation because I haven’t been able to find any information regarding this yet.
