Wendy’s Peppermint Frosty will be launched as a new holiday treat

The holiday season is in full swing at Wendy’s this month with the chain’s new Peppermint Frosty.

Wendy’s restaurants will begin serving the mint dessert nationwide on Tuesday, Nov. 15, according to a press release from the fast-food chain.

The Peppermint Frosty will be available for a limited time while supplies last.

According to John Li, Vice President of Culinary Innovation at Wendy’s, who made a statement for the chain’s press release, the pale pink frozen dessert is Wendy’s “latest flavor innovation”, made with “chips of fresh peppermint”.

Wendy’s Peppermint Frosty will be served alongside the chain’s Classic Chocolate Frosty, which debuted in 1969, according to “The History of Wendy’s Frosty” report the chain released in 2019 for the dessert’s 50th anniversary.

The formulators of Wendy’s iconic Frosty are said to have been inspired by the thick ice cream that was served at a Cleveland-based racehorse track in the 1960s.

Chocolate has been Wendy’s main flavor for decades.

The chain introduced a Vanilla Frosty in 2006, but the flavor was shelved over the summer to make way for the company’s Strawberry Frosty.

Wendy’s marketing materials indicate that the Vanilla Frosty was put on “vacation” at the time and would “come back after the summer”.

Wendy’s online menu does not indicate that the Vanilla Frosty has returned from vacation and the Strawberry Frosty still appears in its place. The strawberry-flavored menu item appears to be available to online customers at select locations, including restaurants in Miami-Dade County, Florida, according to FOX Business.

Wendy’s US marketing director Carl Loredo described Peppermint Frosty and Strawberry Frosty as “seasonal flavors,” according to the chain’s press release.

“Wendy’s is helping to make the most wonderful time of the year even sweeter by introducing an all-new Peppermint Frosty to enjoy during the holidays,” Carl Loredo said in a statement.

Customers will be able to order the Peppermint Frosty at restaurants nationwide or through Wendy’s mobile app after its official Nov. 15 release date, the Ohio-based restaurant chain said.
