Wendy's New Wildberry Shake

Ok youngsters, here's a tip: as you get older, remember to check your calendar at the beginning of the day, not at the end of it. Unfortunately I have yet to stay true to this tip for if I had, I would have been reminded that it was National Ice Cream Soda Day and therefore I would have spiced up my bacon deluxe with a nice Frosty Float. Oh well, I don't believe in these faux holidays anyway. Update: Apparently June 20 is also national vanilla milkshake day. Who makes this stuff up?

Behold the mighty wildberry frosty shake which is a mixture of vanilla frosty plus real strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. Wait, does that mean this bad boy has nothing but real fruit in it? Sorry, afraid not. The legal description of the blend is Wild Berry Puree (blackberries, sugar, corn syrup, strawberries, water, raspberry puree, natural flavor, citric acid, grape juice concentrate, xanthan gum, potassium sorbate [preservative]. Hmmmm, sugar and corn syrup eh? That would explain why this thing is crazy sweet.

This is a potent treat and I am glad I got just a small. I don't know if I really got a wildberry vibe, it was just really a very sweet strawberry flavor. It wasn't fake, or artificial, or tart, but it was oh so sweet and there's just not a whole lot else to say about it.

How about this: if you think a strawberry coolatta is too sweet, you definitely don't want to try this.

Verdict?  oh so sweet
Buy Again?  maybe on a rainy day DISCONTINUED
