Chick-fil-A announced plans on Tuesday to continue its much-anticipated “First 100” promotion well into the new year, promising to give almost 10,000 customers free Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich combo meals in upcoming months.

The inaugural “First 100” took place in Arizona in 2003.  Since then, the promotion has evolved into an honored tradition for the 42-year-old chicken-based fast food chain.  Numerous times, company President and COO Dan T. Cathy even makes an appearance.  According to the company’s website, now every new store opening kicks off with a “First 100” celebration, during which 100 customers receive “a free, year’s supply of Chick-fil-A.”

Chick-fil-A customers will soon be able to complement their order with a new snack: the Chick-fil-A Yogurt Parfait.

The yogurt-and-strawberry treat comes topped with a choice of either granola bits or crumbled chocolate chip cookies.  Already in stores as a breakfast item in three markets, the parfait will be available all day after its nationwide rollout.  In a press release announcing the new item, Vice President of Brand Strategy and Design for the restaurant, Woody Faulk, describes the parfait as one of Chick-fil-A’s “healthier alternatives for breakfast,” however an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution questions this claim based on the parfait’s calorie and fat content.  The article also casts doubt as to whether the snack will gain popularity, citing a recent trend among American restaurant consumers to prioritize taste over nutrition when ordering.
