Chick-Fil-A Unveils a New Autumn Spice Milkshake

by Chris Haney

Chick-fil-A customers in one lucky state will have the opportunity to test out a new Autumn Spice Milkshake as it temporarily hits menus soon.

Once again, the popular fast food chain is releasing a new menu item as a test run in select markets. Those lucky enough to live around the Salt Lake City area will be treated to the new fall-flavored milkshake in the near future. If the milkshake proves to be a hit with Utah-based customers, it could lead to a nationwide release.

The Autumn Spice Milkshake uses Chick-fil-A’s Icedream vanilla soft-serve as its base. Additionally, it has cinnamon, cardamom, orange, and crunchy bits of speculoos cookies. As always, whipped cream and a cherry will top the milkshake.

Sadly, not all Chick-fil-A fans will be able to enjoy the new seasonal milkshake during its test run. It’ll leave many jealous of those that live in Salt Lake City. However, we can still hope for a nationwide release if it proves to be a popular menu item. Chick-fil-A Menu Development Team spokesperson Beth Hefner recently revealed details about the new milkshake in a press release.

“We’re excited to offer guests more menu variety this year. That includes testing out new fall flavors like the Autumn Spice Milkshake,” Hefner said in the press release. “Our guests look forward to our seasonal milkshakes every year. And we’re excited to put Salt Lake City’s tastebuds to the test with this delicious blend of rich, autumn-inspired flavors.”

Chick-fil-A Sued by Texas Businessman Because of Its Long Lines

Speaking of Chick-fil-A, anyone that’s ever been through one of their drive-thrus know how long their lines can be. That said, they have an uncanny ability of hurrying customers through with their unique drive-thru process. However, that’s not enough for one Texas businessman who is suing the restaurant chain.

According to station KNUE 101.5, Mario Kiezi from Beaumont, Texas filed a lawsuit back in December 2020. He alleges that Chick-fil-A’s long drive-thru lines block his customers from the parking lot of his business. He says it keeps customers from visiting his store because of the inconvenience.

Kiezi, who owns a shopping center in Ohio, filed the suit at the end of last year. But he recently shared details about how the Chick-fil-A drive-thru line impacts his business.

“Customers have a hard time getting in. Customers have a hard time leaving. In some instances, customers are trapped in their parking spots. We have had instances where people that are parked in handicap spaces are not able to back out of their space,” Kiezi told the outlet.

Chick-fil-A’s long lines have caused other lawsuits as well. Business owners in Union, New Jersey, and also Toledo, Ohio have filed lawsuits for similar reasons, Business Insider reported.
