The Hack For Adding A Fruity Twist To A Wendy's Frosty

Die-hard fans of the chain will likely claim no fast food restaurant dessert can top Wendy's famous Frosty, be it chocolate, vanilla, or any of the limited edition flavors. However, Wendy's employees have found a way to upgrade the classic Frosty by adding fruit-flavored syrups to make a great thing even better. 

One Reddit user and Wendy's employee shared their favorite combo, a vanilla Frosty with the blueberry syrup used in the chain's Blueberry Pomegranate Lemonade, prompting others to recommend the blueberry syrup in a chocolate Frosty or Wendy's strawberry syrup in a vanilla Frosty. Another person even offered a creative way to make a "banana split" at Wendy's: Get a chocolate and vanilla Frosty with blueberry syrup and the pineapple mango syrup used in the chain's Pineapple Mango Lemonade.

Because Wendy's summer drink menu includes four lemonades, this opens up four different fruity syrups with which customers can experiment. In addition to strawberry syrup, blueberry pomegranate syrup, and pineapple mango syrup, there's also lemon syrup. The latter, when mixed into a vanilla Frosty, gives us Chick-fil-A frosted lemonade vibes — and we aren't mad about it.

Other fun ways to dress up your Wendy's Frosty

Because Wendy's fruit syrups are technically ingredients for the chain's lemonades, it's unclear whether you can walk into any Wendy's restaurant and ask for this particular Frosty hack. However, given that several people have shared similar hacks on TikTok and some of the tips have seemingly come from customers, there's still hope.

If your local Wendy's doesn't allow you to order a Frosty with one of the lemonade syrups, you can take it home and customize it however you'd like. Try using different syrups, sprinkles, nuts, fresh fruit, whipped cream, you name it. For a truly decadent upgrade, try topping your ice cream with red wine for a boozy flavor kick. In short, anything you have in your pantry is fair game.

With all that being said, if adding fruity syrup isn't your thing, you can also use the Frosty base to make an ice cream float. Wendy's used to sell Frosty floats (and still might let you order one in select locations), but you can easily make your own at home with a chocolate or vanilla Frosty and soda of choice.
