Wendy's Twisted Frosty

Ya know what's funny? I can remember the first time I went to a Wendy's. That may not sound impressive, but it was about 25 years ago. I remember being in a part of Pennsylvania that I rarely visited, and it was lunch time. Up until then I had only know McD's (mmm, fresh hotcakes) and BK. I probably got a hamburger, but I also got my very first frosty. What a strange treat! I couldn't drink it! So, out came the spoons and I enjoyed my very first frosty.

Flash forward to present day and Wendy's has gone to great lengths to get to the top of the fast food heap. I'll admit, I'm a sucker for those great little double stack cheeseburgers. The frosty line has greatly diversified in the last year or so. First with vanilla, then with Fix n' Mix, then Twisted Frosties and now the brand new Frosty Shakes(which I need to try).

You can get vanilla or chocolate mixed with Oreos, M&Ms, or the new Cookie Dough (which I haven't tried). The Oreo tastes as you expect. I think the perfect combo is the Chocolate Frosty with the M&Ms. The M&Ms are always plentiful, well chopped, and well distributed. The Frosty was no match for the heat today, but it helped cool me down, and the puddle of M&Ms in Frosty at the end is still a respectable finish. So give one a try, you won't regret it.
