Wendy's Caramel Frosty Shake Review

Fall 2014 Note: Frosty shakes are off the menu!

I'll keep this simple because this shake is exactly as you'd expect. It's a typical thick frostyshake and it tastes like caramel. Now it's not crazy caramel so it's not too far crazy from middle of the road.

It's a decent looking treat and look: it's a caramel  shake so there's not a ton of leeway here unless they use a real terrible caramel. It seems fine, it has a straightforward taste, though when I was done, I think I felt more dry than when I started and so I wound up washing this down with a bottle of water. Not sure how else to describe it.

I just want to say two things. One, I think it's bold for wendy's to offer a straight caramel shake because I don't think anyone else does. Two, that said, this exists because the caramel frosty parfait exists and for no other reason. I don't think there is a huge caramel shake market (though feel free to comment and prove me wrong).

Good night!


  1. I don't know if there is a market for caramel shakes either, but I'll give this one a few tries. What I would really love is another salted caramel shake, but that's a delicate balance I wouldn't trust to most fast food companies.

    By the way, I tried it too, and I thought it was pretty solid and a good change in the routine.

  2. oh, I definitely didn't mind the change of pace since I do enjoy a nice caramel treat now and then (especially when it's not too caramel).

    salted caramel shake? that just sounds dangerous! (MAYBE from a place like coldstone)

  3. Dairy Queen has caramel shakes.....pretty good too.

  4. You can get caramel shakes (or malts) from Sonic too. Delish!

  5. This was the best thing ever and I think about how much I miss it on a weekly basis
