Chick-fil-A Welcomes Spring with Frosted Key Lime on March 18
The newest addition to company's family of frosted treats will be available for a limited time this Spring
ATLANTA - March 14, 2019 // PRNewswire // - A new frosted treat will take the limelight this Spring, as Chick-fil-A® introduces Frosted Key Lime at restaurants nationwide starting Monday, March 18. A fun, new twist on the chain's lineup of frosted treats, Frosted Key Lime is a hand-spun combination of vanilla IceDream®, Lemonade (or Diet Lemonade) and a natural, sugar-free lime flavoring made from a blend of key limes, kaffir limes and Persian limes.
Chick-fil-A tested Frosted Key Lime in Austin, Texas restaurants this past fall. Positive customer feedback confirmed the decision to launch the treat nationwide. Frosted Key Lime is a delicious on-the-go snack or treat that is lighter than a milkshake and packs in superfoods such as spirulina and turmeric.
"Since launching Frosted Lemonade in 2015, customers have shared their excitement about our frosted options, like our Frosted Coffee and Frosted Sunrise, so we are delighted to launch another seasonal, frosted treat this spring," said Leslie Neslage, menu lead for the menu and packaging team at Chick-fil-A. "Frosted Key Lime is both tart and sweet and will be a delicious, lower calorie treat that all customers can enjoy throughout the day."
Frosted Key Lime is available as a small, 16-ounce serving with prices starting at $3.25 and can be handspun with diet or regular Lemonade. Diet Frosted Key Lime (with Splenda®) has only 280 calories, while the regular Frosted Key Lime contains 350 calories. The new seasonal addition will be available in all restaurants Monday, March 18 through Saturday, May 25 or while supplies last.
