What Happened To Wendy's Frosty 'Mix-Ins'?
By Arianna Endicott
When the first Wendy's opened in 1969, its menu featured only five items — one of which was the Frosty. The original chocolate Frosty actually features a unique blend of chocolate and vanilla, but in August 2006, Wendy's also added a plain vanilla flavor to its menu.
In 2007, Wendy's created the "Twisted Frosty," where customers could choose a chocolate or vanilla-flavored Frosty and then opt to mix in M&M or Oreo cookie pieces — later adding Coffee Toffee and Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough as well. However, by June 2011, Wendy’s had quietly removed the Twisted Frosty, devastating many fans.
Even with the Twisted Frosty gone, Wendy’s has continued to introduce other flavors, with the vanilla Frosty temporarily replaced with strawberry in June 2022, which lasted until the end of summer. The classic vanilla returned to the menu until mid-November, when Wendy's launched its peppermint Frosty, again giving vanilla the boot.
