$1 Sweet Tea, and Burger King is pushing $1 Icees, Wendy's is pushing 99-cent 12-ounce Frosties this summer. Unfortunately, my local Wendy's is not participating in said promotion and my "small" 12-ounce Frosty came out to $1.29. I cried a little while paying that extra 30 cents.
Wendy's original version of a shake (I say original version because they now have Frosty shakes as well which takes the Vanilla Frosty as a base and adds flavored syrup, whipped cream, and a cherry on top) is a cocoa-flavored frozen blend of milk, sugar, and cream (and the usual litany of additives). I was first introduced to them via Kid's Meal because Wendy's gives a 6-ounce "junior" sized cup to go with your Jr. sandwich, side, drink, and toy which is pretty sweet.
I don't eat a lot of Frosties these days, but when I do, it's pretty much like a thick, soft, frozen cocoa that you have to eat with a spoon because a straw isn't going to work unless you're a human vacuum. I enjoy it, but when it comes to non-coffee ice cream drinks, I prefer to enjoy them in small quantities. Still, it's a very nice cold treat on a hot summer day.
