The Best Desserts on Chick-Fil-A’s Menu

Crispy fried chicken nuggets, crunchy French fries, and juicy sandwiches, all served hot and ready to go – you thought of Chick-Fil-A, didn’t you? That’s right!

Chick-Fil-A is one of my favorite fast-food restaurants for a reason – they cater to every craving. Do you want quick and filling savory meals? Go to Chick-Fil-A.

If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll be happy to know that Chick-Fil-A offers so much more than chicken and waffle fries.

If you have never ordered one of their sweet treats, it is time that you finally do. Consider this your ultimate Chick-Fil-A calling.

Not quite sure what to order for yourself? I’ve got your back! I have listed down some of my favorite flavorsome desserts found at Chick-Fil-A so that you don’t have to go through the hassle of trying every sweet item on the menu to find your favorite. 

Let’s skip the extra talk and dive straight into some of the best Chick Fil-A-desserts you can grab for yourself!

Icedream Cone

One of the most popular and best-selling dessert items at Chick-Fil-A, the IceDream Cone, is without a doubt one of my favorite pick-me-ups.

While it might look like ordinary vanilla-flavored soft serve in a wafer cone, don’t let the plain and simple appearance trick you into skipping this one.

I don’t believe I have had vanilla ice cream this velvety smooth at any fast food restaurant. 

The best part? It’s low-calorie ice cream, making it the best dessert to grab when you’re counting your calories and watching out for those extra pounds, but you don’t want to sacrifice flavor!

Cookies & Cream Milkshake

It’s hard to beat the addition of chocolate cookies to vanilla ice cream, which makes the  Cookies & Cream Milkshake at Chick-Fil-A a must-try.

It has a vanilla milkshake base, with chunks of chocolate cookie crumbs in every sip.

The chocolate crumbs add a wonderful texture and rich chocolatey taste that will always leave you wanting more.

Chocolate Chunk Cookie

There is nothing quite like biting into a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie.

Luckily, the Chocolate Chunk Cookie at Chick-Fil-A leaves no stone unturned. The cookie is full of large chunks of milk chocolate and dark chocolate, both of which provide the perfect balance of sweetness without being too rich. 

The reason I consider this one of the best desserts at Chick-Fil-A is that it has an oat base. That means the oats are rolled into the dough, rather than topped off on the cookie after baking.

While you can’t crunch into any oats, you can taste their nutty flavor in the cookie’s velvety smooth texture.

I believe every bite of the cookie to be exceptional. I always grab a couple on my way home from work, and surprisingly, they are always fresh out of the oven. 

Chocolate Milkshake

Many people consider the Chocolate Milkshake at Chick-Fil-A to be their best menu item, and I couldn’t agree more!

The Chocolate Milkshake is decadent without feeling overpowering. It has the ideal amount of chocolate flavor to satisfy any craving. 

I’m usually not a big fan of chocolate ice cream or chocolate milkshakes due to the heavy texture and overly sweet taste.

However, there is just something about Chick-Fil-A’s chocolate shake that changes my mind. It’s not too sweet or bland, and certainly not too overwhelming.

At this point, I am convinced Chick-Fil-A has some kind of secret ingredient in their desserts, pulling me and my friends towards them every chance we get. 

Vanilla Milkshake

The Vanilla Milkshake at Chick-Fil-A is sweet and creamy, packing a ton of vanilla flavor into every sip.

My favorite thing about the Chick-Fil-A milkshakes is their classic whipped cream and cherry on top.

It truly completes the scrumptious look of a milkshake straight out of some posh food magazine or a classic 1950s diner.

Frosted Lemonade

Made by mixing the mouth-watering Icedream soft serve with Chick-Fil-A’s signature lemonade, the Frosted Lemonade is one sweet and tart drink you can’t ignore.

Can’t imagine what it tastes like? Think of a lemon creamsicle with a balanced sweet and tart flavor hitting your palette with just one sip. 

However, the flavor and overall texture of the frosted lemonade is much heavier and sweeter than their regular lemonade, which is something you should take note of, especially if your sweet tooth is rather reserved. 

This is one of the most refreshing items on the menu, and a must-have on a hot summer day! While other fast-food places tend to have desserts, I have yet to come across another establishment that has anything like Chick-Fil-A’s Frosted Lemonade. 

Tip: If you’re trying to prioritize your health and watch your calories, you can always ask to order the frosted lemonade with Chick-Fil-A’s diet lemonade instead of their regular lemonade.

Remember, Icedream is already lower in calories than most traditional ice creams, so modifying this dessert is an easy way to stay on track with your diet plans. 

Strawberry Milkshake

Whenever I am craving something fruity and sweet, I head to the nearest Chick-Fil-A and grab their Strawberry Milkshake.

It has the perfect milk to strawberry flavoring ratio, making it an exceptional treat to have now and then.

The best part? It is made with real strawberries, rather than strawberry flavoring.

That is probably one of the reasons why I consider this one of the best Chick-Fil-A desserts because you can munch on the strawberry chunks – a unique addition that not many competitors offer. 

Frosted Coffee

If you enjoy Chick-Fil-A’s frosted lemonade, but you want something with a bit more “kick,” try the Frosted Coffee.

It’s made using their signature cold brew coffee and combining it with sweet and creamy Icedream. 

Each Frosted Coffee is hand-spun, so you’ll get a fresh and tasty caffeinated dessert made to order!

If you tend to like “doctored up” coffee drinks, no matter the time of day, this is the perfect option that won’t weigh you down too much. I won’t judge if you order this for breakfast at Chick-Fil-A

From light and crisp chocolate chunk cookies to sweet and creamy milkshakes, Chick-Fil-A has several flavorful treats to satisfy those with a sweet tooth.

Do you crave ice cream shakes and sugary desserts? Chick-Fil-A will surely satisfy your sweet tooth!

Yes, you read that right – delicious desserts. While you might seldom associate scrumptious desserts with Chick-Fil-A, I am here to permanently change that notion, and for good reason.

Even if you’re someone that wants a more balanced sweet-to-savory ratio in their desserts, Chick-Fil-A’s menu is guaranteed to have something tailored to your dietary preferences. 

If you are looking to grab delicious desserts on the go, all while ensuring that you do not go over your monthly budget, I strongly recommend giving some of the best Chick-Fil-A desserts a shot. You won’t be disappointed!
