Wendy's made an addition to their menus that some have been craving for some time. The fast food establishment had tested the new item last year in their Canadian locations, and it reportedly created some big buzz online. So, Wendy's tried it out in some American locations, and the continued feedback seemed to indicate that the buzz wasn't just a fluke.

Could this be as big of a deal as when Wendy's brought their spicy chicken nuggets back to their menu? 


CNN says that the new strawberry Frosty has come to all Hudson Valley and nationwide locations. It may not sound like a huge deal to some, but this is only the second time the chain has added a new frosty flavor in 16 years. It will be available for a limited time and will replace the vanilla Frosty, though the vanilla shake will return when the strawberry promotion runs out.

Maybe you'll have better luck getting a Frosty than a McFlurry?
