Why Some Chick-Fil-A Fans Are Unhappy With Its Returning Peach Milkshake

The arrival of summer can only mean one thing: Restaurants nationwide are breaking out their seasonal offerings, and Chick-fil-A's new and returning menu items usually do not disappoint. The brand's peach milkshake ranks highly on the seasonal menu, featuring its frozen dessert hand-spun with peaches and topped off with whipped cream and a cherry (via Chick-fil-A). According to It's a Southern Thing, Chick-fil-A typically rolls out this treat at the end of May or in early June.

Despite the excitement surrounding the announced 2021 arrival date of Chick-fil-A's peach milkshake, some fans have found less to celebrate. Over on Reddit, customers shared mixed feelings about the soon returning drink. Fans have taken issue over the proportions of the shake, chiming in with comments like, "That cup size is now misleading" and "I love Chick-fil-A milkshakes! And their peach milkshake is always a fantastic treat. But they've got to be out of their mind if they think I'm paying $4 to $5 for a small-size milkshake."

A Chick-fil-A milkshake that has divided fans

While the size of the cup and the price tag might dissuade some from picking up this shake, Chick-fil-A has struck gold with the peach flavor and it should get some extra special attention from anyone looking to cool off with a hot weather treat. According to Spoon University, the peach shake ranks as the very best milkshake that the brand carries and (thanks to the inclusion of real peach pieces) reviewers compare the drink to sipping on a decadent peach pie. The flavors also blend seamlessly, creating a drink that never tastes overpowering.

If you have searched high and low for new ways to cool off — or for something other than a classic vanilla shake to sip on during the hottest months — try including this seasonal milkshake into your plans for a bit of relief. As long as you're expecting to pay a bit more for this treat, Chick-fil-A won't leave you disappointed with its rendition of a summertime pie in frozen dessert form.
