Wendy’s announced Monday that a new, much-anticipated Strawberry Frosty would be available this summer.
The Strawberry Frosty will only be available for a limited time and will replace the vanilla flavor in most restaurants, as vanilla is used as a base for the strawberry flavoring.
The restaurant chain added the strawberry treat to its menu amid consumer demand, Wendy’s said in a press release.
“We’re always listening to our fans and as the most-requested item, it was a no-brainer for us to bring the Strawberry Frosty to the menu this season,” Carl Loredo, Chief Marketing Officer for The Wendy’s Company, said in the release. “While some of our competitors are still trying to get their ice cream machines to work, fans can dip into this new strawberry treat all summer long at Wendy’s.”

The Strawberry Frosty is Wendy’s first new flavor since 2019, when it introduced a birthday cake flavored Frosty for a limited time in celebration of the company’s 50th birthday. The vanilla flavor was added to menus in 2006.
Wendy’s didn’t say exactly how long the Strawberry Frosty will be on the menu.
