Chick-Fil-A Has The Perfect Valentine's Day Gift For Chicken Nugget Fans

Seeing that florists and the makers of chocolate candies have a nice Valentine's Day racket going, fast food chains are taking a piece of the action for themselves. Dunkin', for example, has its heart-shaped doughnuts and special Valentine's macchiatos. Dunkin's sweet treats do make sense as substitutes for the standard box of chocolates. Chick-fil-A, meanwhile, didn't build its reputation on chocolate or sugar but figured, what the heck? We can put chicken in a heart-shaped box and tell people their significant other will love it. And who can argue? Chick-fil-A ranks number one year after year in customer satisfaction (via Reader's Digest). They do know something about pleasing their customers.

Between now and February 13, Chick-fil-A is stuffing heart-shaped boxes full of various bite-sized treats intended to wow your partner (via The Chicken Wire). Those looking for a protein-rich snack can choose between 30 chicken nuggets or 10 Chick-n-Minis, which are nuggets on tiny rolls brushed with honey butter. For those who want to add more sweetness to their Valentine's Day, Chick-fil-A offers heart-shaped boxes full of six chocolate chunk cookies or 12 chocolate fudge brownie halves. This is a big moment for the brownies, which were only added to Chick-fil-A's nationwide menu this past September.

Chick-fil-A suggests giving your partner breakfast in bed with Chick-n-Minis

According to Best Products, you can pick up a heart-shaped box of Chick-fil-A yumminess for $7.39 to $13.19, depending on the item. For the budget-minded, this sounds like a good deal. Godiva is asking $49.95 for its heart-shaped box of chocolates, and you only get 14 pieces of chocolate. That's more than $3.50 a bite.

Ever the thoughtful and kind fast-food chain, Chick-fil-A has some other ideas for making someone's Valentine's Day that much brighter — and they're not all about the chicken chain trying to sell you something. Perform a random act of kindness, Chick-fil-A suggests in the announcement about its heart-shaped boxes. Or, surprise someone by decorating their room with construction-paper hearts. How about serving your beloved breakfast in bed on Valentine's Day — and make it that box of Chick-n-Minis, while you're at it? Throw in some bacon and orange juice, and sure, you could call a box of Chick-n-Minis "breakfast." (That, and the Minis are actually on Chick-fil-A's breakfast menu.)

Just remember, Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday this year, so don't try running out and grabbing your heart-shaped box at the very last minute. Chick-fil-A is always closed on Sunday.
