First Impressions: Wendy’s Frosty-cino
I usually window shop before visiting a fast food restaurant, checking out the banners that hang in their windows to see what the latest items are. Wendy’s latest item is their ‘Frosty-cino’. Which, according to their website describes it as:
Real dairy Frosty with coffee syrup from real-brewed coffee. We hand spin it, top it with real whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate to create an exciting, deliciously different Frosty Shake.
A small (12 oz) cost $2.39, which wasn’t a horrible price. If you happen to go to some ‘high end’ coffee shops, their versions will cost about that if not more. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but when I took my first sip, I definitely enjoyed it. I realized it had been quite a long time since I had a shake from a fast food joint. The coffee flavor isn’t overpowering. It’s basically coffee ice cream. For some reason, I didn’t mix the whipped cream and syrup with the rest of the drink, and when I got to the end, it was way too sweet. So if you get this, definitely mix everything together. It’s a nice treat, something I’ll definitely get again.
Price – $2.39 small (12 oz)
