Wendy’s Is Serving a Strawberry Frosty That’s Perfect for Summer

There's no better Frosty flavor for sunny days!

As the weather gets warmer, we’ve all got our go-to cold treats—whether that’s Cracker Barrel’s brand-new mimosa, the creamy Dairy Queen summer Blizzards, or of course, a Wendy’s Frosty. While the classic chocolate Frosty is the perfect follow-up to a Baconator, we definitely wouldn’t mind a fresh fruit flavor—and Wendy’s has delivered!

Introducing the Strawberry Frosty

Yep, we’ve got a fruity Frosty on the menu, and of course, it’s a Strawberry Frosty, making it perfect for summer. Wendy’s just announced the “berry” good news, and of course, we can’t wait to get our hands on it.

The Frosty was one of the five items on the original Wendy’s menu, way back when Dave Thomas opened his first outlet in 1969. The treat, which has a consistency smack between a milkshake and soft serve, doesn’t usually see much innovation, but this isn’t the first time they’ve served up a strawberry flavor. Wendy’s offered a Strawberry Frosty for a limited time back in 2010, made by blending their vanilla Frosty with strawberry syrup. The newest offering blends a special strawberry puree with the classic vanilla Frosty, so we’re expecting it to taste just like fresh strawberries!

Where Can I Get One?

Starting Monday, June 6, you can get the Strawberry Frosty nationwide. That’s right—while the Strawberry Frosty was only available in one location in the US until now—a Walmart in Heath, Ohio—it’ll now be available at Wendy’s everywhere! Keep in mind that it’s a limited-time item, so you should get to your local Wendy’s before it’s gone.

It’s also (temporarily) replacing the vanilla Frosty, which will return once the Strawberry Frosty leaves the menu. So does this mean that the Strawberry Frosty will be a seasonal treat? No idea, but if it never comes back, you can always hop over the border and grab one in Canada. And if you want to experiment, you can always make your own Frosty—just sub in strawberry instead of chocolate.

And make sure to check out the Strawberry Frosty’s replacement for the winter season: the Peppermint Frosty.
