I've got a terrible idea
a.k.a. trying the new Oreo Frosty Parfait

You know, I'm amazed I made it a WHOLE 5 DAYS before trying the new Oreo Frosty Parfait (I first saw them on the tenth). So I've been waiting for the right moment and probably thinking about Frostys way too much when I had a genius idea. WHAT IF.... I asked for my Oreo Parfait with chocolate frosty? I could be a trendsetter! I took my briliiant idea with me to lunch today.

"Welcome to Wendy's, can I take your order?"

"Yes, could I get a Oreo Frosty parfait, but with chocolate frosty?"

"no, vanilla soft serve only"

"ok, let me have a regular one then"

DENIED! But as you can see, I still picked up my rather small looking treat. The cup size says 10 oz and they must have just refilled the frosty machine because this was super soft. I could have drank it with a straw it was so soft.

Not only was my treat soft, but I got gipped on my chocolate sauce too. You know what? Now that I look at it, I can see the creme bits have fallen off the wafers and become little crumby bits (look to the northwest quadrant). The parfait ad shows whole cookie bits, as in cookie - creme - cookie chunks, but when I ate this treat, I didn't even notice any creme flavor. I thought it was straight cookie wafers. The good news is that the wafers were very fresh. The sauce is ok, a straight forward chocolate, but I guess I had hoped for something sweeter (and I guess a bit more fudgy). I guess I was hoping for tht sundae vibe where you get sauce then ice cream then sauce again, but this was just a mild flavored mess (again, could have been do to the melted frosty)

So, I'm still going to give this a decent rating, though unfortunately mine was a poor example. It was just too soft to even be filling and I wound up chasing this thing with a big handful of pretzels. Never fear though, I will head back soon enough to try the other two flavors.

Verdict?  Decent
Buy Again?  at least one more time


Look, I use to work in fast food, and I don't mean for like 3 days either. I clocked some major hours flippin' burgers, and I know that somewhere, somehow, that someone is eating a chocolate oreo frosty parfait. So, your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to earn your second scoop stripes and get me a picture of a chocolate oreo frosty parfait. That's right, let's beat the system people. Do you work at a Wendy's? Have a friend that does? Or maybe just now how to sweet talk your way into being the first to scoop the un-scoopable? My advice is to go when it's not busy... and preferably when the manager isn't standing nearby. Come on, I know somebody out there can do it! We can keep your identity a secret if need be. Let's do this! (You can't put the picture in the comments, so send it over to onsecondscoop at gmail dot com)

Update: Julien managed this task with minimal troubles, check it out here.
