ATLANTA, March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Chick-fil-A® will put a seasonal twist on a customer favorite this spring, as the company introduces Frosted Strawberry Lemonade to the menu beginning Monday, March 20 at restaurants nationwide. Frosted Strawberry Lemonade is a hand-spun combination of Chick-fil-A's fresh squeezed Lemonade (or Diet Lemonade), its signature vanilla Icedream® and strawberry purée. This seasonal item will join the menu alongside Frosted Coffee and Frosted Lemonade as a delicious treat to be enjoyed any time of the day. A seasonal menu item, Frosted Strawberry Lemonade will be available through May 20.
"Our customers are really enjoying our line of Frosted beverages and we want to give them an additional flavor this spring, during the peak of strawberry season," said Amanda Norris, senior director of menu development for Chick-fil-A.
Frosted Strawberry Lemonade is available in small (14-ounce) and large (20-ounce) servings with prices starting at $2.99. A small starts at 360 calories when made with regular Lemonade and 310 calories when made with Diet Lemonade.
Chick-fil-A's lemonade is made from scratch daily at each restaurant using only fresh-squeezed lemon juice, pure cane sugar and water. Chick-fil-A uses approximately 250 million lemons each year. Icedream, inspired by founder Truett Cathy's original recipe, is a delicious, dairy treat with an old-fashioned vanilla taste.
Chick-fil-A's first frosted beverage, Frosted Lemonade, was added to the menu in 2015 and was so popular that Chick-fil-A added Frosted Coffee, made with cold-brewed iced specialty coffee, to the menu in 2016.
