Refrigerator or Freezer? Best storage methods?
What are the best short-term storage methods? We buy 5-6 Frostys and invite friends over and eat them 6 hours later. They would melt if left room temperature, but after they are in the freezer they loose the original "Wendy's texture", becoming a bit more icy. We'd like to know the melting temperature, and whether it's better to store it in the refrigerator or the freezer. ClintJCL (talk) 04:00, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
Milkshake or cream?
Is a Wendy's frosty considered a milkshake, or of the soft-serve ice cream variety?
Chocolate or Not Chocolate
I've always thought Frosties tasted more like frosted malt than chocolate. In fact, I'm not sure why many people think it's chocolate. Frosties taste delicious, but they don't exactly taste like chocolate.
The boxes at Wendy's say "Chocolate Frosty Mix". The Kids Aren't Alright 04:53, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
- It's an equal blend of chocolate and vanilla, I think. I saw it on the Food Network once. Sykil 02:57, 22 June 2006 (UTC)
- I'd say that's correct. If you mix vanilla and chocolate ice cream together (or take vanilla ice cream and stir chocolate syrup into it) you get something that looks and tastes remarkably like a Frosty. Kairos 13:59, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
Why do so many people think a Frosty is nondairy?
Many people claim it's a non-dairy product, and I even have a friend who told me it was made with soy. Why does this myth persist?
- I guess that's because Frosties are so icey that it doesn't seem like there could be dairy. Just smile at them and laugh when you get home. ;) --M1ss1ontomars2k4 (T | C | @) 04:57, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
Frosty as a Soquid
It is also known as a Soquid (Solid + Liquid) that you can eat with a fpoon (Frosty + Spoon). How you eat a Frosty with a Frosty and Spoon is a mystery to me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs)
-- Well, you can only eat a Frosty if you have a Frosty and a spoon, right? If you have only a spoon, how do you eat the Frosty if it isn't there? Therefore, Frosty + Spoon = How to eat a Frosty. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs)
- The logic seems a little off here: e.g. What to eat spaghetti with: with spaghetti and a fork? Most people would just say "with a fork", not "with spaghetti and a fork". Also, the word "with" means "accompanied by". So are you saying in order to eat a Frosty, you have to accompany it with ANOTHER frosty and then a spoon? I can barely eat one! Either way, the awful advertising campaign has fortunately come to an end.
---It's the whole Soquid part that's incorrect. A Frosty is an amorphous solid that melts a a low temperature, turning partially into a liquid. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs)
- The "soquid" thing is a joke appearing in Wendy's promotional materials. Bradd 23:05, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
As it turns out the Frosty material is most likely a bingham plastic (until it melts), rather than the so-called "soquid."
- Uhh... I'd say a Frosty is simply a highly-viscous liquid. - SigmaEpsilon → ΣΕ 14:06, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
- Move Frosty to Frosty (frozen snack) and Frosty (disambiguation) to Frosty?
- In my opinion, this snack is not a sufficiently dominant meaning of the words "Frosty" and "frosty" for it to take the plain-name page. Here in England in over 60 years of eating ice cream and similar I have never heard of this snack except via this page. Anthony Appleyard 04:34, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
- Frosty is however the most notable use of the term "Frosty". --Nenyedi TalkDeeds@ 15:47, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
- I have made the move. Page Frosty did not have so many incoming links, except user pages and users' talk pages, and redirects which nothing pointed to; of the others, some were for the breakfast cereal and one was for a musician. I have adjusted page Frosty's incoming links where necessary. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 14:20, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
Soft serve ice cream?
I feel that designating the Frosty as soft-serve ice cream is not the best classification. A Frosty is actually ice milk as it contains no cream. It is indeed a "frozen dairy dessert" as the page title indicates, but the section in which it is referred to as ice cream should probably be rewritten. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:07, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Ice+cream?r=75&src=ref&ch=dic http://www.wendys.com/food/Nutrition.jsp 1. Ice cream doesn't necessarily need cream. 2. It does have cream. Justinarice (talk) 03:05, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
