Happy Friday, everyone! This is Q’Zion, and welcome to my blog! ♡
Yesterday, I shared some of the special moments from my recent trip to the Museum of Science & Industry to kick of the second half of summer. But I never shared what we did after. Me and Goodmommy–my grandmother and guardian–are huge fans of Wendy’s chocolate frosty–which we both have grown up eating–so we were super excited to see how one of the newest items on their menu would compare. As a result, we stopped at the nearest Wendy’s to give it a try when our field trip was over.
It was a little tough to save this surprise for an entire day. But now, I’m super glad that I did; today I will be sharing my review of Wendy’s newly released–and highly anticipated–strawberry frosty.
As soon as I opened the top, I couldn’t help but be excited by the silky smooth baby pink dessert. And as soon as I took a sip, I was pleasantly surprised by the texture. I described it to Goodmommy as a mix between a strawberry milkshake and smooth ice cream. Not to mention that it was really cold, which was definitely refreshing in the warmer weather of the season.
Though the more sips I took, the more I realized that something was off about it. Don’t get me wrong; it was tasty. But the strawberry flavor wasn’t quite sitting with me as well as it would in a strawberry milkshake. Finally, Goodmommy pointed out the taste that I couldn’t describe: generic. And by that, I mean that it tasted artificial. As if they didn’t use real ingredients.
According to my research, the strawberry frosty is just Wendy’s vanilla frosty with strawberry puree mixed in, which I’m quite sure was a large factor in the fake taste that this new flavor portrays.
Now, did the artificial taste ruin the entire experience? For me, absolutely not. In fact, I think that the frosty would be a fairly decent treat for those who are looking for a quick, cold treat in the summer. But that and the buttload of sweetness is definitely noticeable as soon as you take a spoonful.
If you are a fan of sweet, strawberry-flavored desserts–like me–then I’m quite sure you’ll like several elements of this frosty. However, if you aren’t a huge fan of sugar or tend to stay away from things with a fake or artificial taste, then the case may be different for you. Goodmommy was one example of the last scenario.
As my final thoughts, while it is in no comparison whatsoever to Wendy’s chocolate frosty or the strawberry milkshake from Steak n’ Shake–two of my favorite cold fast food desserts–it was a good experience to try something new and refresh my palette with this newly released summer treat.
Wendy’s strawberry frosty will be available until the late summer, in case you are wondering. But just remember, if you’re going to get a frosty from Wendy’s, chocolate is probably the way to go.
Rating: 7 out of 10 stars; not terrific, but not bad, either.
Have a beautiful and blessed day, everybody! Peace in! ♡
