Scoop 74: Wendy’s New Vanilla Frosty

by Ice Cream Maker Reviews on August 8, 2006

I don’t particularly enjoy fast food, but when I’m on a road trip (and more or less forced to eat it) I prefer Wendy’s.  I could tell you the whole long story about our drive back from Cape Cod and how I was holding out for a Wendy’s of which they don’t seem to have on I-95 in Connecticut, New Jersey, or New York and how it wasn’t until 3 in the afternoon in Delaware that we finally discovered one, but I won’t bore you with the details.  What’s important is that we finally found one and I got my Wendy’s.  And what’s great about it is I got a FREE Frosty.

I ordered my usual medium chocolate Frosty but when the woman poured it and handed it to me I noticed it was off-white in color.  I didn’t really think about and said, “Did they change the color of the Frosty?”  She realized her mistake and poured me a chocolate; but she also gave me the vanilla one for free!  So, I got two Frosty’s.  Surprisingly the Vanilla Frosty was quite good.  It tasted a lot like a McDonald’s soft serve cone (that artificial, but not grossly artificial vanilla flavor).  It had the same consistency as a Chocolate Frosty and all-in-all I was impressed.  In fact, I ate more of the vanilla than of the chocolate.  Next time you’re at Wendy’s give it a try.
