Wendy’s Drops the Holiday Frosty Flavor We Were Mint to Have

Wendy’s has been on a kick lately with new flavors of their beloved Frosty, and we’re here for every twist on the classic Wendy’s Frosty recipe!

Releasing just the third new flavor in sixteen years, the latest release is a holiday exclusive peppermint will get everyone into the holiday spirit. 

The holiday release follows close on the heels of the Strawberry Frosty that had its limited run this past summer, which was met with great fanfare.

What Is the New Frosty Flavor?

Perfectly coordinated to the holiday season, the new Peppermint Frosty is expected to see huge demand at Wendy’s locations this holiday season.

Taking the crown as Wendy’s first-ever holiday Frosty flavor, the Peppermint Frosty is expected to be pale pink in color with bold peppermint flavor.

The Peppermint Frosty will temporarily replace the Vanilla Frosty, which joined the original Chocolate Frosty in the permanent Frosty lineup in 2006.

Are new Frosty flavors a thing we can expect on a recurring basis now? I’m not sure, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

“The Peppermint Frosty is our latest flavor innovation on the iconic Wendy’s Frosty that fans have come to know and love for over 50 years,” Wendy’s Vice President of Culinary Innovation John Li said in a press release.

The new, limited edition holiday flavor will be available at Wendy’s locations on Tuesday, November 15th and is expected to retire after the holiday season.

But, Do You Dip Your Fries in Your Frosty?

The real question is, do you dip your fries into your frosty or are you not from the Midwest? In case you’ve never tried it, it’s ahhmazing. The perfect sweet and salty mashup.

If you are a fries-into-Frosty dunker, will you dip in the new Peppermint Frosty or is that reserved for the original only? Obviously this is of great importance!

Personally, I’m a purist. Fries only get dunked into an original Chocolate Frosty or that delicious Wendy’s chili we all know and love.

Over the summer we discovered that you could do half/half Frosty flavors. A Strawberry Frosty is great, but a Chocolate Strawberry Frosty is even better. 

Will I be trying out a Peppermint Chocolate Frosty? You can bet your Frosty loving heart it’s at the top of my list!
