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

Chick-fil-A's holiday themed shake, the Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake takes their Icedream soft serve and blends it with peppermint syrup and red & white dark chocolate pieces, 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 in the southern California market.

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. It is really sweet and the chocolate pieces taste more like milk chocolate than dark melting nicely on the tongue.

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 for me is Strawberry. I wonder if anyone else gets the same taste... I've never encountered the same taste 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.
