I normally wouldn’t review a chain, let along one that is fast food. But when Chick-fil-A reached out and asked me to give their restaurant a go because of their new desserts, I decided to say ‘absolutely!’ Why? Let me tell you.

  1. A reason to eat a spicy chicken sandwich. Eating out at lunch is rare, especially fast food. So an excuse to have the spicy sandwich was accepted. I like that it is a tender chicken sandwich with subtle, spicy breading. The end pieces are crispy, but most of it is barely covered with the thin breading. Plus, a pickle ends it well for me.
  2. I like chocolate. The whole reason was the try desserts. And I’m not one to turn down some ice cream, cookies, and brownies.
  3. Desserts for you! Yup, you heard me. YOU can get these wonderful desserts yourself. But of course, I had to try them first.

After I noshed on my chicken sandwich and waffle fries, I gave the cookie sundae a try. A chocolate chunk cookie was broken up in the bottom of the cup and topped with soft serve ice cream. Vanilla I may add. Whipped cream and cherry with more chocolate cookie chunks rounded out the simple dessert. Something I would expect from CFA. They take simple food and make sure it is solid and yum (that’s a technical term – yum). And yes, this sundae was the perfect sweet ending to my lunch. The cookie was soft, chewy, and loaded with chocolate chunks. Delicious.

But, I want you to try for yourself. And though I paid for my lunch and sundae (the sundae is a mere $1.79!), CFA and I don’t want you to. They want you to enjoy it all just because you are a reader of City Nom Noms. Talk about a deal.

I have a numerous gift cards to give out to you! Each card gives you an opportunity to try a dessert every month, all summer long.

  • May – chocolate chunk cookie
  • June – brownie
  • July – chocolate chunk cookie sundae

How do you win a gift card? All you need to do is leave a comment telling me why you love CFA! Maybe it is the fantastic service you always receive, or maybe it is because you appreciate that they close on Sunday for their employees to have a weekend. Or, maybe you like the spicy chicken sandwich as much as I do.

That’s it. And don’t hesitate to share the opportunity via twitter or Facebook. There are plenty to give away – I have a total of six cards for you to enjoy. Well, six of you!

As I have been out of town for a large chunk of May, I understand there isn’t much time left for this. So this will be a quick contest, as I don’t want you missing out on that cookie! The contest will end at Friday, May 25 at 5:00 p.m. eastern standard time. I’ll randomly (via computerized system) pick six winners and send all of you a card to enjoy (and then you best get to CFA for your May dessert!)

Start commenting, and as always, thanks for reading (and be sure to thank CFA for this opportunity!)

Note: the opinions of all restaurants are those of the restaurant and not mine. This giveaway is sponsored by Chick-fil-A to promote their new desserts.

    I love them because they don’t believe in marriage equality and are willing to spend millions of dollars to ensure that such discrimination is written into law! Thanks, Chick-fil-a!

    Love the fact that they use peanut oil to fry because it gives everything such a unique taste. Makes their flavors entirely different than everyone else’s.

    The food is always solid and the service is always top notch! I’ve never had a bad experience there…ever. (Am i jinxing myself?!)

    Their nuggets with Polynesian sauce are fabulous! And going on a lunchtime walk for a milkshake is always pretty fun!

    Like their chicken sandwiches but am ashamed to admit I’ve never had their spicy chicken! I really want to try that! (and dessert, of course) :)

    their chicken sandwiches are the best tasting things ever!

    I love their chicken mini’s at breakfast!

    I love their Honey Roasted BBQ sauce.

    LOVE their breakfasts…the chicken minis and the hash brown rounds are my treat to myself when I have to work a Saturday morning!

    I have to agree with the first comment. The owners have given millions of dollars to anti-gay groups. Supporting that doesn’t mesh with my values so I avoid the place.

    I love their waffle fries! It’s a nice change from all of the other chains “regular” fries.

  15. Cean Bent May 24, 2012 at 9:53 pm #

    I do love their chicken nuggets! and the waffle fries are pretty hard to resist, too.

    I like the chick-n-strips

    Chic-fil-a is a very guilty pleasure. I try to avoid fast food but when I do have it, it’s Chic-fil-a. I don’t agree with some of their views but I do like the service I get there and that they provide scholarships to their employess. Plus it just tastes too darn good.

    I love their breakfast bagel. Yum! I also love that my Chick Fil A does a lot of community activities and give-a-ways.
