View Full Version : Just Say No to Wendy's Frosty - Impossible?

Is it at all possible to go into a Wendy's and not at some point order a Frosty? I have tried several times, every one of them has been unsuccessful. I am wondering if this is a general human trait or if I have some sort of recessive gene that precludes me from not purchasing the creamy, chocolatey dessert.

You do know they are made with seaweed right? They use it as a thickening agent.

I've never not ordered one while at Wendy's either. Though I have ordered a frosty without ordering anything else. Does that count?

I loves me some Frosty! Though I have been able to enter and exit a Wendy's without succumbing to their chocolatey goodness, I have also made special trips solely to secure them.

I don't get the Frosty. I love chocolate shakes. A Frosty is Something Else. I also don't like their burgers, etc. so I never go there.

How bad is a Frosty? They're worse than Hardy's shakes. "Um, excuse me, but why does my chocolate shake taste like coffee?"

My favorite thing about Frosty's is that they seem to contain very little actual dairy. I'm somewhat lactose intolerant but Frosty's are no problemo.

I say hooray for carageenan. Ever since I read The Black Stallion, I've been pro-carageen seeweed (it's what they ate on the desert island to survive)

I never got Frosties. I'm not big on frozen dessert products in the first place, but the off-beige color always sort of put me off. What flavor are they supposed to be, anyway?

The few times I've ingested one of these concoctions the closest I've been able to figure it is that it's some combination of "cold" and "dirty frozen yogurt nozzle".

But da-amn, they are good.

There's nothing wrong with using seaweed. Why, I had a biology professor in college tell us that they used to use Bull semen in ice cream to keep it from freezing. Now they use kelp extract.

Technology marches on!

Bull! Now that's a UL worthy of Snopes. Time to do some debunking. Ice cream is supposed to freeze, that's why they call it ICE cream. What's it's not supposed to have is ice cyrstals. The butterfat content and mixing while freezing keeps them from forming.

but, uh, do they have Krusty partially gelatinated non-dairy
gum-based beverages?
Lou: Mm-hm. They call 'em, "shakes."
Eddie: Huh, shakes. You don't know what you're gettin'.

If you go soon, Wendy's is running a fundraiser for adoption...donate $1, and get coupons for free fries, and frostys, and you can enter for a chance to win a trip to Aruba!

Act fast, supplies are limited!!

I usually love the frosty. But lately everytime I order one it is half melted!!!! This is unacceptable for a frosty! The thick, creamy texture is key.

You know what makes Frosty's even better???

Take them home and add some Bailey's Irish Cream to them!!!

*swoon*

I can't believe that's butter!

I went to Wendy's at the food court yesterday, but I didn't buy a frosty because I'm watching my money. However, I DID get a junior bacon cheeseburger. So good.

I can get out of there without a Frosty, but without my 2 Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers and a med. Dr. Pepper? God wouldn't allow it. Without fries, of course. I like fries, but I'd rather have another sandwich instead.

I eat sushi too. Doesn't bother me at all.

However the idea of sushi dipped in a frosty bothers me slightly.... don't know why.

Oh? Four of the first six ingredients are milk products.Milk, Sugar, Cream, Corn Syrup Solids, Whey, Non-fat Milk Solids, Cocoa, Dextrose, Guar Gum and Cellulose Gum (thickeners), Mono and Diglycerides (emulsifiers), Carrageenan (thickener), Calcium Sulfate, Disodium Phosphate (emulsifier), Artificial and Natural Flavors.

I used to dip my fries in my Frosty when I was a kid.

Or does this belong on the TMI thread?

Frosties, FYI, are EXCELLENT hangover remedies...containing all of the cold, soothing, stomach-coating ingredients needed to make last night's case of Milwaukee Beast a distant memory.

And as far as whether or not it contains "dairy," I suppose it does....but only in powdered form. I find it hard to reconcile powder with any kind of Real Dairy. (I saw the lady loading up the Magic Frosty Maker, and it's a big bag of funky-colored powder.)

I don't really care what's in 'em.

I like to toss them in the freezer for about 3 hours then eat them. Reminds me of the frozen chocolate "shakes" that we used to get at the Toledo Mud Hen's games when I was a kid.

The idea of using sea weed extract to thicken your icecream it makes it taste funny. So funny in fact I almost gag at the ice cream from the ice cream soft serve machines.

It's not that hard to make your own icecream without it and have it be better tasting.

I worked at wendy's a few years ago, and people would ask for chocolate shakes when they meant frostys. This used to annoy me quite a bit.

Never mind the Frosty (I like them; I've lived half a block from a Wendy's, for 15 years). I don't like their chili--loosest chili I ever tried; it's more like chili soup. :rolleyes:

SIR!!! SIR!!! Sir in the stall next to my own.
Do you have a cite for the bull semen in ice cream??? Google failed me. That is hilarious but I want evidence so it will be even more hilarious.

Me either. And a lot of people think that's weird. I will occasionally eat Cookies N' Creme, and once in a while I get a craving for one of Sonic's chocolate shakes.

I've never been able to order and drink a fast food milkshake, ever.
