Wendy's Replaces The Frosty-Ccino With New Frosty Cream Cold Brew

Let's say you've stopped by a Wendy's for a Frosty, but you're feeling a bit drowsy. You could get a Frosty and a cup of coffee. Or, you could sample their newest offering, the Frosty Cream Cold Brew, and scratch two itches at once. Replacing the Frosty-ccino, this beverage combines mellow cold brew coffee with signature vanilla Frosty creamer and your choice of syrups, either vanilla, chocolate, or caramel, a recent addition for the chain. The combination is served "swirled over ice," according to a Wendy's press release sent to Tasting Table.

We reached out to Wendy's to find out more about how the Frosty Cream Cold Brew differs from the Frosty-ccino, and John Li, Wendy's Global VP of Culinary Innovation, had this to say in an email. "We noticed that our customers wanted more of that coffee flavor so with our new Frosty Cream Cold Brew we have flipped the build," Li explains. "Instead of leading with ice, we focus on the ratio of flavors first. This begins with the preferred syrup (vanilla, chocolate, caramel), then moves on to adding Wendy's signature Frosty Cream, real cold brew and ending with ice. It's a better balance of flavors overall, and we're excited for fans to get their hands on it!"

The Frosty Cream Cold Brew became a permanent addition to the Wendy's menu on July 24. And it makes sense too, as Wendy's is the only fast-food chain to serve cold brew nationally.

Wendy's has been serving up cold brew coffee for a couple of years now. It differs from iced coffee, which is simply hot coffee poured over ice, in that whole coffee beans are steeped in ice for 12 hours. The process results in a brew that is smoother and less acidic than hot brewed coffee. It is also typically stronger than regular coffee because less water is used. The easy-drinking and well-caffeinated cold brew from Wendy's — made with a specially-selected blend of beans — makes for an ideal pairing with the sweet, rich Frosty creamer.
