Chick-fil-A Adds First Organic Offering to Menu
New "Appley Ever After" contains half the sugar of the leading kids' juice drink
Appley Ever After is available in 6 oz. juice boxes and is sweetened only with organic fruit juice, giving it half the sugar of the leading kids' juice drink1. One box contains 100 percent of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C, has no added color, is USDA Certified Organic, gluten-free, kosher and has no GMOs2. It will be available as a beverage option with the Kid's Meal at no extra charge, in addition to low-fat regular or chocolate milk and fresh-squeezed lemonade.
"We are eager to launch our first organic menu item, and we are even more excited that it will be available at no extra charge in our Kid's Meals," said Matt Abercrombie, senior consultant of menu development for beverages and breakfast for Chick-fil-A. "Our customers have been asking for low calorie options and we are making concerted efforts to add more healthy and sustainable offerings to our menu. Appley Ever After is an organic juice drink that parents should feel good about ordering for their kids."
In 2012, Chick-fil-A was the first quick service restaurant to add Grilled Nuggets to its Kid's Meal, setting a higher standard for children's meals in the industry. Chick-fil-A continues to adapt to the growing needs and health preferences of its customers. In addition to adding the organic Appley Ever After, the company also recently launched a new Superfood Side, an all-natural Greek Yogurt Parfait, removed trans fats from its entire menu in 2008 and more recently removed high fructose corn syrup and artificial colors from its dressings and sauces in 2015.
