Chick-fil-A Serving up Latest Cow Calendar, Seasonal Milkshake for the Holiday Season
ATLANTA, Nov. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chick-fil-A Eat Mor Chikin' Cows are taking reality TV by stampede this holiday season with the chain's new 2011 Cow Calendar. The seasonal cheer at Chick-fil-A® doesn't stop there. The Atlanta-based restaurant chain will also sell gift cards and add the Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake back to menus as a limited-time flavor to celebrate this special time of year.
The latest edition of the cow-themed calendars, entitled "The Cows of Reality TV: You Can't Script the Fight Against Burgers," pays homage to some of today's most popular reality TV shows. In an effort to prove cows can do more than just make a good meal, the clever bovines star as the leading mammals and contestants on the reality shows featured each month in the calendar. Shows include "Boogyin with the Bovines," a dance competition featuring cows attempting to "show the world that it's better to see a cow cut a rug than see one become a cold cut" and "The Beefcake," a dating show starring 20 heifers vying to win the affection of a "prize bull."
The calendars can be purchased at any mall or stand-alone Chick-fil-A restaurant or at www.Chick-fil-A.com for $6 (plus tax) beginning Nov. 1 through early January (or until supplies last). The calendar also includes monthly food and beverage offers.
The holiday excitement continues with the seasonal Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake, which is back by popular demand on Chick-fil-A menus nationwide starting Nov. 1. As with the chain's year-round milkshake flavors, the Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake is hand-spun with Chick-fil-A's popular "home-style" Icedream® and topped with light whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. Milkshakes are offered in 14 oz. or 20 oz. cups and are priced from $2.55 and $2.95, respectively.
