For about a month lucky Chick-fil-A customers in the Jacksonville, Florida area — like all those thirsty NFL Jacksonville Jaguars fans — can wet and cool their thirsty whistles with a ‘Frosted Sunrise” drink by Chick-fi-A. Chick-fi-A is serving up a combo drink that it says is “not a smoothie” and “not a milkshake.” The same can be said for Chick-fil-A’s popular “Frosted Lemonade.” That drink, which Chick-fil-A added to the menu in 2015 is a combination of tart and sweet — lemonade and its Icedream-branded ice cream. Frosted Sunrise plays the same tart trick, but instead mixes orange juice — made by the Simply Orange brand — with Icedream.
Chick-fil-A positions the 300-calorie small Frosted Sunrise as an alternative to smoothies and milkshakes, claiming it has fewer calories than a typical shake. The Jacksonville test market will have the Frosted Sunrise to slurp till November 18 and its feedback will be essential to getting the item tested more broadly. So if you know anyone in the Jacksonville area and the Frosted Sunrise looks good to you, ask them to order one or two. Also you can tweet to Chick-fil-A that you’d love to see the Frosted Sunrise near you. The popular Frosted Coffee and Frosted Lemonade will continue at all available locations, but the Frosted Sunrise is catch-it-while-you-can for now– just like the real sunrise.
