I'm so upset, I just had my last Frosty at Wendy's tonight. I have loved Wendy's Frosties for years. I was even annoyed when they recently came out with the vanilla Frosty because everyone knows Frosties are CHOCOLATE!
Anyway, I was on my way home this evening and Alyssa had fallen asleep in the car, so I knew I didn't need to rush home. I pulled off the tollway to stop by Wendy's to get a Frosty as I felt I deserved one. I had not had one in a couple of months.
I went through the drive thru. I ordered my small Frosty. I got to the second window and held out my $1.07 and the girl looks at me and says, "It's $1.29."
I said, "No it's not. It's $0.99 and with tax it's $1.07." She looks at me like I'm crazy and says again, "No, it's $1.29."
I looked at her and said, "A small Frosty is not worth $1.29 and it's never been $1.29." Again, she looked at me like I was crazy, like she had no idea Frosties had been $0.99 for years and years!
I got through my real estate classes over 8 years ago by stopping by Wendy's every single night and ordering the Junior Bacon Cheeseburger, Biggie Fries, and Biggie Frosty all for ONLY $3.23. Over the years, the $0.99 fries went down to the large, and then the medium, and currently a small. The Frosty did the same thing. However, the Junior Bacon Cheeseburger is still $0.99. Now, they're trying to take the $0.99 away from their trademark Frosty.
Wendy's, listen up, it's not worth more than $0.99!!! You just lost a VERY loyal customer! No longer will I go and order some fries to dip into my Frosty as I love the sugar-salty mix along with the hot-cold mix of the two that most people would never think to mix together.
I'm very sorry to say that until I see a Frosty at $0.99 again, I will NEVER have another Frosty.
