Every year since 2005, Chick-Fil-A has had Cow Appreciation Day in July and offered free food to those who dressed up like a cow. Wear any sort of cow apparel and you can get a free entrée, such as an Original Chicken Sandwich, Chick-fil-A Nuggets (8- or 12-count), or a breakfast favorite such as the Egg White Grill. Children wearing anything cow-like get a free Kid’s Meal. It’s all a little silly, but in the spirit of free Chick-Fil-A it’s good cheap fun.
So, when is Chick-fil-A’s 16th annual Cow Appreciation Day coming in 2020? Unfortunately, but not unexpectedly, Chick-Fil-A has announced that Cow Appreciation Day is officially postponed. This is a major downer, but we hope things get better soon so we can dress children up in ridiculous outfits for our enjoyment like this:
In the meantime, enjoy summer classics like lemonade and the Peach Milkshake at your neighborhood Chick-Fil-A to drown your sorrows!
Summer Mango Passion Tea Lemonade and Peach Milkshake
Summer is heating up, and Chick-Fil-A has two ways to help you cool off – the return of its fan favorite Peach Milkshake, plus a new Mango Passion Tea Lemonade!
The Peach Milkshake is a longtime summer favorite made with real peaches. You can get a small for about $3.50 and a large for about $4 – we saw prices ranging from $3.29 to $3.55 for the small in our testing.
The new Mango Passion Tea Lemonade is a mashup of Chick-fil-A Lemonade and Unsweetened Iced Tea blended with a mango and passionfruit flavored syrup. “Summer is the perfect time for people to quench their thirst with a delicious and refreshing drink like Mango Passion Tea Lemonade,” said Ben Bolling, beverages category leader at Chick-fil-A in this announcement. “It was well received when we tested it in Jacksonville, Fla., last fall, so we’re excited to offer it to guests around the country and give them more variety to help sweeten up a meal or midday snack this summer.” Mango Passion Tea Lemonade costs around $1.99 – $2.09 for a small and about $2.30 for a large based on our testing.
Chick-Fil-A Family Meals
Chick-Fil-A is getting into the Family Meals game with some new options at participating restaurants. The idea is to get entrees and sides a la carte to get what you want, but still give you a good deal. For example, a 30 piece Chicken Nuggets (presumably to split 4 ways, but we won’t judge if you take them all down) is about $13.50, and a 4 pack of Medium Fries is about $7.50. So, if you’re will to forgo a drink, you can feed a crew for $21!
Chick-Fil-A announced the new Family Meals in this press release. Here’s the options available:
- Entrées: 30-count Chick-fil-A Nuggets, four Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwiches, and four Spicy Chicken Sandwiches
- Sides: four Medium Waffle Potato Fries, four Medium Mac & Cheeses or four Chocolate Chunk Cookies
- Beverages: Gallon of Freshly-Brewed Iced Tea (sweetened or unsweetened)
The easiest way to see if your local spot offers them is to check the menu in the app for the Build Your Own Family Meal section. If so you’ll see something like this:
