Wendy's Frosty Cookie Sundae

[New for Spring 2019] It may not seem like it, but it's been five years since Wendy's has done anything new with their frosty line up. We use to get various experiments here and there but it's been pretty quiet recently. Now they haven't surprised us with something like a strawberry frosty, but if you pull in to drive thru like I did Friday night, you will be greeted by a sign for...

Wendy's Frosty Cookie Sundae
(a cup of) frosty topped with chocolate chunk cookie bites
and Ghirardelli Chocolate Sauce

I wasn't able to try it on Friday, but after my son's baseball game on Saturday, I took him to Wendy's nuggets and fries but also got two sundaes for me and my wife.

One chocolate (left) and one vanilla (right)
Not quite as photogenic as the advertisement ofcourse

The biggest surprise here is that these are pretty small. Granted, it was only two dollars, but considering how much Wendy's pushes value, it feels like it should be more like $1.49. Nitpicking? Probably, but these are not filling.

Overall it's different and I can't imagine anyone turning their nose up at it if offered, but please don't expect some magical experience with soft, warm, fresh baked cookies here. It's the frosty you know with some chocolate sauce and fairly crunchy cookies. My quickly melting chocolate frosty was not able to add the necessary contrast to the fairly hard cookies.

My wife enjoyed the vanilla version and at some point I'll head back to try it for myself (the vanilla version just makes more sense to me), but I don't exactly expect this to become a weekly treat. Offer me a larger size with fresher cookies and then we'll talk.

Hey, at least they are trying. Maybe this will have a brownie brother at some point.

Verdict?  two bucks
Buy Again?  probably?

Unrelated, but have you tried the Serendipity ice cream pints? So it at Shoprite this morning and am tempted, but wanted to see your thoughts if you had tried them

Thanks!

I am searching for them when I can, but have not seen them, seems like you should head in with tempered expectations. Hopefully I'll get one of them up here soon.
