Review: Chick-fil-A - Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake

A top-down view of Chick-fil-A's Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake.
Chick-fil-A's holiday themed shake, the Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake, takes the chain's Icedream soft serve and blends it with peppermint syrup and red & white dark chocolate pieces before topping it with whipped cream and a cherry on top.

It carries a suggested retail of $2.55 for a small, but it costs $3.09 here in Southern California.

If you're a fan of peppermint flavor, Chick-fil-A's Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake has a strong, cool mint flavor tinged with a vanilla base throughout each sip but is really sweet. The chocolate pieces melt nicely on the tongue but taste more like milk chocolate as it lacks the expect bittersweet notes.

I don't know if it's just me, but the vanilla soft serve at Chick-fil-A has a weird aftertaste that's kinda artificial and lingers a little. It's really off-putting for me. Oddly, I didn't get the same taste after the shake had melted in the fridge and mixed with the whipped cream. The flavor that seems to mask the aftertaste best for me is Strawberry. I wonder if anyone else has had the same experience... I've never encountered the it with any other ice cream.

  1. I noticed you report around me. Im in glendale (CA obviously) where in the world is there a chick-Fil-A around here?

  2. There's one in Long Beach off the 605 but it is a bit aways from Glendale. I remember way back in the day there was one in the Cal State LA food court but that was a long, long time ago.

  3. Hm, apparently there's one that opened this year by USC.
