Wendy’s Just Dropped a New Strawberry Frosty That’s Perfect for Summer

There's no better mix than sunshine and strawberries.

As the weather gets warmer, we’ve all got our go-to cold treats—whether that’s Taco Bell’s slurp-worthy new Freeze, the creamy DQ summer Blizzards, or of course, a Wendy’s Frosty. While the classic chocolate and vanilla Frostys are the perfect follow-up to a Baconator burger, we definitely wouldn’t mind some new flavors—and Wendy’s has delivered!

Introducing the Strawberry Frosty

Yep, we’ve got a fruity new Frosty on the menu, and of course, it’s a Strawberry Frosty, making it perfect for summer. Wendy’s announced the “berry” good news on Twitter, and one fan replied, “Just the kind of news we needed to survive the week after the long weekend.”

The Frosty was one of the five items on the original Wendy’s menu, way back when Dave Thomas opened the first outlet in 1969. The treat, which has a consistency smack between a milkshake and soft serve ice cream, 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. We’re not sure if this will be the same, but we can’t wait to find out!

Where Can I Get One?

If you want to get a bite of this tasty pink treat, you can, but you might have to take a bit of a road trip. The new Strawberry Frosty is only available in one location in the US right now—a Walmart in Heath, Ohio. The fast food giant has opened a Wendy’s Hamburger stand offering limited edition items like the new Buttermilk Ranch and Jalapeno Cheddar flavored chicken nuggets and of course, the Strawberry Frosty inside the Walmart store. You can also hop over the border and grab one in Canada. We’re keeping our fingers crossed in hopes that we’ll see it at our local Wendy’s soon, though!

If you want to experiment, you can always make your own Frosty at home—just sub in strawberry instead of chocolate!
