These 10 U.S. cities can’t get enough of this seasonal shake.
The holidays are best spent surrounded by those you love most – family, friends, or in this case, the Chick-fil-A® Peppermint Chip Milkshake. Beginning Nov. 1, this seasonal shake is perfect for peppermint lovers and a sure way to make the holiday season that much sweeter.
The long-awaited Peppermint Chip Milkshake has made its return to participating Chick-fil-A restaurants nationwide and will stick around until early January or until supplies last. While the seasonal addition is a favorite among customers all over, we must give a special shout out to the 10 cities that fully embraced Peppermint Chip Milkshake season last year, ordering more than any other part of the country (determined by the percentage of sales).
10. Twin Falls, Idaho
This scenic town might be known for its scenic parks and trails but enjoying a Peppermint Chip milkshake is a go-to pastime for Twin Falls residents.
9. Missoula, Montana
The world’s largest gold nugget was mined in Missoula, but it’s clear the real gem of this city is the Peppermint Chip Milkshake.
8. Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
Fun Fact: Former President Teddy Roosevelt called the Pennsylvania State Capitol Building in Harrisburg “the most-handsomest building” he’d ever seen. We like to think he’d give a similar modern-day accolade to “the most-tastiest” milkshake he’d ever enjoyed.
7. Boise, Idaho
Known as the City of Trees, Boise is full of spots to hike, bike and explore. But when residents aren’t enjoying the great outdoors, they’re sipping on a Peppermint Chip Milkshake.
6. Appleton, Wisconsin
Appleton neighbors the green and blue Lake Michigan and Lake Winnebago, but during the holiday months, the town celebrates red and white with a Peppermint Chip Milkshake.
5. Harrisonburg, Virginia
While Harrisonburg is known by most as the home of James Madison University, it has also been dubbed “The Friendly City.” No surprise there – it’s hard not to be friendly when you’re drinking this many Peppermint Chip Milkshakes.
4. Plattsburgh, New York
It may get chilly during the winter months in this town, but it’s never too cold for guests to get their favorite winter treat. This northern city still loves to sip on Peppermint Chip Milkshakes, even in the coldest months!
3. Idaho Falls, Idaho
While Idaho is known as the “Potato State,” it’s clear that even Chick-fil-A Waffle Potato Fries® may take a backseat to the Peppermint Chip Milkshake during winter in Idaho Falls.
2. Bangor, Maine
Known for its history of producing timber, Bangor is home to a 31-foot Paul Bunyan statue. Even though Maine winters can get cold, you better believe that this state loves Peppermint Chip Milkshakes, regardless of the temperature.
1. Salt Lake City, Utah
Based on the number of Peppermint Chip Milkshakes these residents drink, we think it may be time to rename this town “Sweet Lake City.” Did you know that this city drinks the most Chick-fil-A Milkshakes nationwide? Guests sipped on more than 1.5 million Chick-fil-A Milkshakes last year.
