Food News: Wendy’s New Frosty Treats

Well, we knew they were coming, and although I’ve yet to see an official press release, the Wendy’s website has let the cat out of the bag when it comes to the new frosty variants. Looks like there are several new flavors of Frosty Shakes and Frosty “Parfaits” being offered. Here’s a look at the new fun flavors (nutrition information based on large):

Wild Berry Frosty Shake

Love a little fruity mix? Then treat yourself to our classic Frosty™, hand-spun with a mixed berry blend. It’s sweet and tasty goodness straight from your straw (750 calories, 16 g fat, 10 g sat fat, 1 g trans fat, 120 g sugars).

Caramel Frosty Shake

Crazy about caramel? Then we’ve got the treat for you. Sip on our hand-spun shake that mixes our classic Frosty™ with real Ghirardelli caramel sauce—it’s perfectly sweet and delicious (1020 calories, 19 g fat, 12 g sat fat, 1 g trans fat, 157 g sugars).

Caramel Apple Frosty Parfait

It’s our creamy, classic Frosty™ swirled with brown sugar granola, red and green apple slices, and real Ghirardelli caramel. It’s a tasty, feel-good treat (400 calories, 9 g fat, 5 g sat fat, 57 g sugars).

Oreo Frosty Parfait

First we take the cool, creamy vanilla Frosty™ and mix it up with a classic favorite, Oreo® cookie chunks, then finish it off with rich milk chocolate syrup. It’s a mouth-watering favorite (400 calories, 9 g fat, 6 g sat fat, 56 g sugars).

Wild Berry Frosty Parfait

We give our classic Frosty™ a very berry and flavorful twist with fresh strawberries and juicy blueberries. It’s a delightful treat for any occasion (320 calories, 7 g fat, 4.7 g sat fat, 48 g sugars).

In addition to bringing out the new Frostys, Wendy’s will also donate 50 cents to the Dave Thomas Foundation for each frosty sold on June 18-19 to The Dave Thomas Foundation for adoption. Bravo!

    This is the first time anything from Wendy’s has caught my attention in a long time.

    Ghirardelli caramel? Fancy…

  5. Meg says:

    157g of sugar in the caramel one? OUCH! Sugar rush 😉

    These need to come w/ a warning label fa sho.

  6. i don’t even care about frosties… but these look awesome.

    1020 calories AND 157 grams of sugar in the caramel shake? FML… I LOVE caramel related desserts. Big shocker that the caramel apple and oreo frosties only have 400 calories… Looks like I should take one of those instead.

      I agree. They need to have these things in mini. FF places should offer more mini shakes. Customers will pay more per once for something more managable, plus they can get the “Eat This, Not That” people off their backs (the Wendy’s of the world, that is). It’s a win-win.

    That Caramel Apple Frosty Parfait looks like it might have some potential.

    It’s a choice between a shake and a parfait; not that shocking that there’s huge caloric gap, especially when you think of the size that, say, a Steak n’ Shake milkshake comes in. I do agree with the idea of a smaller/value size for new items like this (and speaking of smaller treats, I miss the Jr. size frosty).

    • Adam says:

      Yea. Personally, I’ll always stick with the standard frosty. It’s cheap, decent sized for a small, and it won’t bust your days if you’re trying to watch what you eat.

    there’s nothing like a classic frosty. i used to sip/eat those back in the day with my spicy chicken meal. ahh, being a fat kid was much more fun than being a fat adult

  11. AB says:

    I just had the Berry shake, it’s really good. I just had half though… since it was 750 cal… Would be ultra fantastic in a smaller size!

  12. […] Wendy’s has some new frostys. […]

  13. Laing says:

    Ooooooo I had not one but two shakes today. I tasted the Carmel Frosty Shake and devoured the Wild Berry Frosty Shake! They we so good! My affection for Wendy’s Frosty’s has increased ten fold.

  14. carlvino says:

    Also just tried the Berry Shake. It was fantastic, and not just because I’m pregnant and it’s over 100 degrees outside. Great summer treat for cheap!

  15. Tim says:

    The calories listed here are for a large-size frosty shake. Get a small and it’s still high in calories, but a few hundred less than listed here (680 for the caramel, 640 without the whipped cream, 550 for the wild berry, 500 without the whipped cream).

    What is the deal with the new Wendys frosty. You go to order your dollar menu frosty and you recieve a way smaller frosty. I get that it is off the dollar menu, but that is half the reason we go there. We pass a MCDs, BurKing and Jk in Box to get there and now you can fit the new frosty and its container in the old Wendys frosty’s cup. What a snow job.

  17. david says:

    The new frosty is not good. Smaller, way smaller.

  18. Denny says:

    There should probably be actual photos of people oohing and awing about 1000+ calorie drinks. People should know what happens to you when you eat this stuff.
