The Underrated Frosty Drink You Need To Try At Wendy's

When we heard that Wendy's had managed to cross two of our favorite things, the fast food chain's classic Frosty and coffee, it really got our attention (via Eat This, Not That). In a world of mashups, the Frosty-ccino seems to be a clear winner. Described by the Wendy's website as cold brew coffee swirled with vanilla Frosty and served over ice, we think this delectable caffeine-filled combo is the perfect treat for a mid-morning snack or an afternoon pick-me-up. The beverage itself appears to be more reminiscent to an iced latte than a Frappuccino, lacking the thick texture of the Starbucks beverage. Both drinks do, however, come in at a similar calorie count, around 200 calories for a small (via Starbucks).

While this treat is officially made with Wendy's vanilla Frosty mix, don't worry chocolate-lovers, it looks like they make it pretty easy to customize your own chocolate Frosty-ccino too. In a post uploaded to the social media platform Instagram, user @jeanette_k_stuart captioned a photo of the new drink, "A Wendy's chocolate frosty with coffee... it's so tasty." Now, when we think coffee, we usually think breakfast, and that is exactly what Wendy's was thinking as well.

The Frosy-ccino completes Wendy's new breakfast menu

The Frosty-ccino is part of Wendy's new breakfast rollout that actually began on March 2nd. While many of us were anxiously reading headlines about a new novel coronavirus, the Breakfast Baconater was making its debut (via Cleveland). The menu originally rolled out to 6,000 restaurants nationwide and also featured signature sandwiches like the Maple Bacon Chicken Croissant and Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit, and homestyle potatoes that look to us a little like potato wedges with seasoning. 

Wendy's President Kurt Kane says crews will be hand-cracking fresh eggs. "People deserve a delicious, affordable and higher quality breakfast than what they're currently getting, so that's exactly what we're going to serve..." Describing the breakfast combos, one taster shared on Instagram that the Breakfast Baconater, "...contains a Grilled Sausage patty, American cheese, Applewood smoked bacon, an egg, more bacon & it's covered in Swiss Cheese sauce!" When talking about the new signature drink, this Wendy's fan thinks the iced coffee and frosty hybrid is a clear winner, writing "I've already tried Frostyccino (my third one since breakfast started last week), also the Maple Bacon Chicken Croissant & Seasoned Potatoes which were also amazing!". Clearly a big Wendy's breakfast fan! These new-ish Wendy's breakfast items look like they'll satisfy most any fast food cravings, and we can't wait to get our hands of the Frostyccino in both traditional vanilla and the off-menu chocolate.
