Fall is finally here and to celebrate the new season, Chick-fil-A are introducing some new additions to their menu with the Grilled Spicy Deluxe Chicken Sandwich and Autumn Spice Milkshake.

Last fall saw Chick-fil-A roll out the Autumn Spice Milkshake in Salt Lake City locations, and after the drink’s major success, this season will see the fall milkshake roll out nationwide.

The milkshake rolls out nationwide on Monday, September 12, although it has already been made available at certain Chick-fil-A locations around the country. And in their latest promotional drive, some branches of Chick-fil-A have been showing fans how to make the recipe on TikTok.

The ingredients in Chick-fil-A firmly cement it as a fall drink. While not veering into the pumpkin spice territory, which is closely guarded by Starbucks, Chick-fil-A have gone down a spiced cookie route to differentiate their new fall favourite.

Chick-fil-A describes their Autumn Spice Milkshake as follows:

“Hand-spun the old-fashioned way, this milkshake is Autumn spice and everything nice. Made with Chick-fil-A Icedream dessert combined with rich flavors like cinnamon, cardamom and orange as well as crunchy bits of speculoos cookies, it’s a tasty fall treat. Topped off with whipped cream and a cherry.”

The drink is made with an Autumn Spice syrup which features ingredients such as corn syrup, brown sugar, sweetened condensed milk, orange peel, milk, vanilla extract, sweet potato, and more.

Development team call the milkshake the “tasty treat of the season”

As a new season comes around so do new items to the Chick-fil-A menu.

“It’s been four years since we’ve introduced a new milkshake flavor to our customers,” says Beth Hefner, a member of the Chick-fil-A Menu Development Team.

“We hope the Autumn Spice Milkshake serves as an exciting kickoff to fall for our customers and that they fall in love with this new tasty treat of the season,” Hefner continues to say.

The Grilled Spicy Deluxe Sandwich will see some changes this fall as it is brought back with “a bigger and bolder” marinade, a multigrain brioche bun, Colby-Jack cheese, and a Cilantro Lime Sauce says Chef Angela Wadlington.

Reviews of the Autumn Spice Milkshake roll in

Although Chick-fil-A’s Autumn Spice Milkshake is released nationwide on Monday, September 12, select branches already have the fall drink on offer. This means that already we’ve got a taste for how the drink is being received by Chick-fil-A fans.

One reviewer explained that they were “pleasantly surprised” in a TikTok video. “It really gives you an autumn feel, I love it,” they continued to say.
