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!

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.

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)

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