Chick-fil-A Test Items: Oatmeal and Sweet Potato Fries

Has anyone come across oatmeal at Chick-fil-A? Certain markets are carrying it and I’d like to know a little more about it. I know McDonald’s Fruit and Maple Oatmeal has been going strong for a while now.  Or how about Chick-fil-A’s Sweet Potato Fries? I’m putting a bounty on Chick-fil-A Oatmeal and Sweet Potato Fries.  A $10.00 CFA gift card for each item could be yours if you submit pics and a quick opinion to GrubGrade at Gmail dot com. If we use your submission, you’ve got a prize coming your way. As far as I know, the Chick-fil-A Oatmeal is described like this:

Chick-fil-A Oatmeal is a slow-cooked, multigrain oatmeal with a hint of brown sugar. Customers will have their choice of toppings, including cinnamon brown sugar, roasted mixed nuts and a dried fruit blend, with the option of upgrading to add fresh strawberries.

Oh and I tracked down this itty bitty pic:

As for the Sweet Potato Fries… all I know is that they exist.  And I found this pic online via someones tumblr acct in Georgia:

    Oooo. Sweet Potato fries. Frozen, no doubt, but that’s the best way to get them. I know TJ Farms does a great frozen fry…the fresh ones are just oo hard to manage because of the chemistry. Nothing to report out here in Utah – I feel like our CFA’s are still promoting the heck out of the spicy options.

    The impulsive buy posted a link to a review of the oatmeal http://tampabayfood.com/2011/04/13/chick-fil-as-new-oatmeal/

    I tried to order a spicy chicken wrap a few days ago and the manager told me they no longer had those because they were making room for “new snack items.” I’ll send in pics if I can get my hands on those items on Monday (That is, if the sweet potato fries last long enough for me to take a picture =P)

      I’m actually surprised they never made a chargrilled spicy chicken sandwich..they had to make the spicy grilled patties specifically for the wraps and salad, the other wraps and salads are made with plain chargrilled patties that are leftovers that never got the chance to be a sandwich.

      • Ramirez says:

        Actually, our chicken is made fresh everyday. The chicken we use for the wraps comes from the chargrilled chicken breasts we make specifically for the wraps and salads. We don’t have leftover chargrilled chicken, those are thrown out every night. This, coming from a Chick-Fil-A employee loyal to the company for about 4 years. =) However, a spicy chargrilled sandwhich doesn’t sound like a bad idea.

      This looks a lot like the oatmeal at Starbucks, it comes with the packets of nuts, brown sugar and dried fruit.

      I’m sure the sweet potato fries are frozen, the waffle fries are.

  5. […] Chick-fil-a is testing sweet potato fries. […]

    Eh, who wants sweet potato fries with a chickien sandwich? Waffle fries are great and are the perfect pair to CFA’s chicken.

  7. Phil says:

    Sweet Potato Waffle Fries to be testing in markets of OKC, Philly, Nashville, and 1 store in Georgia. The 1 in Georgia already has them but the rest begin May 2nd.

    Oatmeal goes on the menu at ALL locations in June, not as a test

  8. Phil says:

    Just to clarify, “the rest” meant the rest of the markets listed…not the rest of Georgia.

    Had the sweet potato fries waffle fries today at a Chic-Fil-A off 316 in Georgia. They we’re pretty great. Not quite enough salt. They were more expensive than the regular fries as well. Same size, shape, everything as the standard fry. They were crispy, but not overly fried. Pretty disappointed in the price hike though.

    Address of Chic-Fil-A:
    850 Loganville Highway, Bethlehem, GA 30620

    Philly area definitely has the sweet potato waffle fries as of today – they were giving out samples while I was waiting through the drive thru and I order some with my sandwich. They are more expensive than the regular fries. I liked them but probably won’t order them again because I didn’t think they were worth the price difference.

    Just saw the oatmeal available at a Tampa, FL Chik-Fil-A. Found this review at tampabayfood.com

  12. Katie says:

    I’m sure both of these things exist. Here in Ohio they are still promoting the heck out of the spicy sandwich and what not. Even if the fries are frozen, everyone will eat them. I mean seriously, look at Chick-fil-A now! They are #2 in the world in the chicken industry. How do I know this? I work there.

  13. Sue says:

    I had the Chick-fil-A sweet potato waffle fries…somewhere. I travel a great deal, and I am guessing that it would have had to be in GA or Memphis. Anyway, they were awesome and I would order them over the regular waffle fries any day…they are worth the price difference…IMHO. I hope they bring them into the regular product line…Sonic has sweet potato tots that are really tasty, too! Step up and meet the competition ; )
