Opinions Are Berry Controversial

The new Cherry Berry Frosted Lemonade from Chick-fil-A!

Once again, Chick-fil-A has made taste buds nationwide sing, but this time, it’s not with their chicken. Since 2017, customers have had continued excitement when new seasonal items arrive. The first seasonal drink to be introduced was the Watermelon Mint Lemonade; this is the original Chick-fil-A lemonade with added watermelon and mint flavors. This seasonal drink continues to return every year. This spring, Chick-fil-A has created a quartet of drinks to welcome the spring season. The new drinks are berry-flavored, featuring cherry, cranberry, and blueberry flavors. Customers are dying to get their hands on the beverages.

When new items are added to the Chick-fil-A menu, they are unexpected to all people. Workers are just as surprised as customers when the new flavors are introduced. A Chick-fil-A employee, Yusra Munshi, shares how little knowledge she has about upcoming items. She says future menu plans are “confidential.” However, Munshi is able to determine what may return in the future because she sees what drinks are the most successful firsthand. Munshi says, “Out of the new cherry-berry flavors, the cherry berry lemonade is definitely sold the most.” She also states this is her favorite of the newly introduced beverages. While Chick-fil-A describes this drink as “Our classic Chick-fil-A Lemonade mixed with refreshing cherry, cranberry, and blueberry natural flavors, “reviews state that the Cherry Berry lemonade is said to have a sour taste to compliment the berry flavor. It also has a red and pink ombre, making it visually appealing to customers. These drinks are very popular and will only continue until supplies last.

However, not every customer loves the new seasonal items. Hannah Capo is one of Chick-fil-A’s biggest fans. Capo estimates to visit the food chain once a week. She loves the variety of food choices on the menu. Capo also loves a good beverage. She says she is easily influenced by social media trends. The new seasonal beverages have been heavily trendy, and Capo had to give it a try. “I don’t really like it because I am not a fan of cherry-flavored things. I always gravitate more towards tropical-flavored things.” Capo would choose a lemonade or Coke rather than a berry drink. Other Chick-fil-A customers agree that the cherry flavoring is overpowering. Nevertheless, a few negative reviews on these drinks will not affect Chick-fil-A too much, as their wide variety of other choices continues to bring paying customers in.

Chick-fil-A’s new cherry berry seasonal items bring excitement to customers, as they have given ten new drink options to choose from. The flavor-blasted drinks have become very popular, and consumers are going out of their way to try them. These beverages are a perfect, refreshing sip to accompany the all-time famous chicken. The drinks have only recently been introduced but will only last until supplies run out. Make your way to your nearest Chick-fil-A to purchase one of the cherry-flavored drinks.
