Wendy's International announced today that it will begin offering nationwide availability of its new Vanilla Frosty in its Wendy's fast food restaurants.
Up until now, the world's third largest hamburger chain offered its popular Frosty in only one flavor, chocolate.
Wendy's has been testing the Vanilla Frosty at locations in Pittsburgh, Erie, San Antonio, Portland, and Youngstown, where customer response and sales have been positive.
The company's founder, Dave Thomas, came up with the idea for the Frosty dairy dessert. He loved thick milkshakes growing up and wanted a dessert on the menu that was so thick you had to eat it with a spoon. The Frosty is a cross between a milkshake and soft-serve ice cream.
Nationwide availability starts this August.
