PRIZE DRAWING: Because You Want To Make Me Drive In The Nation’s Worst Traffic


Hey! We’re giving away a $25 Wendy’s gift card. Want to enter? Then read on.

Damn. That was such a lazy intro. Usually, they’re a bit more elaborate. Maybe it’s because I’m not excited about giving away a $25 Wendy’s gift card. I should be because they have those new Signature Sides, but I’m not. Maybe I’m not excited because I have to drive in our country’s worst traffic to get to the nearest Wendy’s in order to purchase the gift card we’re giving away.


Ugh. Even though it was all in caps and used exclamation points, I’m afraid the previous sentence had no emotion.

Anyhoo, to enter The Impulsive Buy’s Wendy’s gift card prize drawing, leave a comment with THIS post. I don’t care what you say in your comment, but it would be awesome if it included things you’ve dipped into a Wendy’s Frosty.

  1. This might sound gross but dipping spicy chicken nuggets in a frosty is amazing!!!

  2. I went beyong dipping fries once and dunked my burger… it all goes down the same pipe.

    I’ll tell ya one thing I never dipped in a frosty. A straw. Spoons are for frostys, you can keep your damn straws.

  3. Hey, this is a family website… LOL, just kidding that would ruin the Frosty. Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

  4. I have never dipped anything into a Frosty except a spoon. I’m willing to try a fry if I win!

  5. So, there are some amazing things that should be dipped into Wendy’s Frostys. Personally, I have dipped the ever popular french fries, but I’ve also tried the Baconator (nom nom nom) and a grilled cheese sandwich. Maybe it’s because cheese and ice cream, or ice cream like substances are all dairy products, but both were really delicious. 🙂

  6. I once dipped my… um… well, my ding-a-ling into a Frosty.

    Hey, it was my own! Sheesh.

  7. I was thinking of getting the original Frosty, until I see that they have a Caramel Frosty Shake! Caramel (spoken as care-a-mell as to not offend the second “a”) in a Frosty – hells yeah!

  8. I kind of don’t like frosties. Blasphemy, I know. I am now intrigued to stick a nugget in one, though.

  9. I would like to win the gift card because then I could go to my friendly neighborhood Wendy’s, order a Frosty and fries to dip into it, and have a tete a tete with my friendly neighborhood Wendy’s elderly mentally challenged lady. She is nice. She gives me ice when I ask, and is very glad that I asked, I think.

  10. Bacon is the “weirdest” thing, but I usually dip the old classic– fries

  11. I don’t care for ice cream, but I would use that $25 to buy 25 Jr Cheeseburger Deluxes because they are the best fast food product on the planet. That’s lunch for a couple of months for me since I don’t have time to eat lunch every day.

  12. Please enter me, although there is less point in eating at Wendy’s now that they have *canceled* there spice chick guacamole burger.

  13. I don’t like Frostys (or ice cream in general), but I would use part of the $25 card to try the new “signature sides”. The baked sweet potato looks especially good.

  14. A slice of cold pizza into my wife’s frosty one inebriated night. Not bad! Also, not good.

  15. I dip my fries into my frosty (chocolate only) and my husband gives me strange looks.

  16. Haven’t been to Wendy’s for so long! Probably dip… another frosty. Yeah.

  17. I loooove fries dipped in my frosty. Classic chocolate. Nuthin’ like it! 🙂

  18. I really want to try the new sweet potato and need an excuse to drive through the nation’s worst traffic to Wendy’s. Pick me!

  19. I’ve never dipped anything into a Frosty. Would like to try the sweet potato with this gift card if I won. (Not dipped in a Frosty though. That would be gross!)

  20. I in fact dipped my girlfriends nipple in my frosty at home
    after I had made a frosty run. The nipple turned into what felt like a hard
    raisin. She told me I had a sick little mind and I never did it again.

  21. I love to mix the hot and the cold, so my Frostys welcome French fries, or as I now call them, European beachgoers. I also dip in a spoon, because you can’t always trust the Frosty not to surprise you in a bad way by flowing down to your waiting mouth in one big clump.

  22. I had my first Frosty a few weeks ago and I don’t know how I went so long without one. Since I’m so new to the Frosty world, the only thing I’ve dipped in it is my spoon. Forgive my boringness. But if I were to win this gift card, I can assure you that I’d dip all sorts of crazy things in it.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. I’ve dipped some nuggets and fries in a frosty. I got really awkward looks and one envious look from a child with his mother.

  24. When I was a child, I dipped fries in frosties. But that was ages ago, so I need this gift card to help me experience my childhood again.

  25. I haven’t tried wendy’s yet so I hope to win a gift card so I can finally know what their food taste like!

  26. Not dipped, but I’ve impulsively put a dollop of Vanilla Frosty on a Wendy’s Spicy Chicken sandwich (plain – no fixings, simply bun and meat) before. Mind blowing.

  27. When I was living in Los Angeles, I’d drive home for Xmas, which was in Northern California. I’d always stop off at a Wendy’s along I-5 for lunch!

  28. Does anyone else remember/still miss the stuffed pitas? Now I have to resort to Jack’s Fajita Pita, and it’s okay, but just not the same.

  29. Mmmm…Frosty…

    After having 4 wisdom teeth removed in January, a Wendy’s Frosty was the first thing that I ate…well I guess kind of gummed and slurped.

  30. Sadly, the only thing I’ve dipped in a Wendy’s frosty is the spoon that comes with it. But I solemnly promise to dip more interesting things in it if I win this gift card! 😀

  31. I often dip fries into my ice cream, and have done so with a Wendy’s frosty/

  32. I’ve dipped fries in them before, but it’s not a regular thing. However, I’d use the gift card to expand my horizons. Something about a spicy chicken nugget covered in vanilla frosty goodness sounds so f’ing good.

  33. I always dipped fries in them, but that seems to be the boring choice… these days, I’m sure that there are far more decadent offerings to dip in one, or at least more salacious ones.

  34. I really miss their boneless wings. They might still be on the menu but I’m pretty certain they are not. I’d usually get a number three no onions with an order of the Asian wings. I would dip the fries in the excess Asian sauce because I never remember to actually ask for ketchup and I don’t like using the ketchup I have in my fridge because it’s cold and by the time you eat the fries they are usually just luke warm and that’s just a bad combination.

  35. Ive dipped a fork into a Frosty because the rude girl there didn’t give me a spoon. I don’t often let obstacles ruin my eating experience.

  36. I’ve dipped the new fries into a chocolate Frosty. Never, never again. I’d probably end up spending it all on Spicy Chicken Sandwiches and Junior Bacon Cheeseburgers.

  37. Haven’t had Wendy’s in so long. Used to get their spicy chicken sandwiches all the time.

  38. First I come home and immediately walk into my Dave Thomas room turn on my strobe light, my two lava lamps, and my ceiling fan (I get warm). I then put on the classic 90s hit “Da Dip” by Freak Nasty and dance seductively around the Frosty Cup while mimicking the instructions of the semi-popular dance song. I grab a single fry that is housed in it’s temporary greasy cardboard home then dunk it slowly into the cold, rich, creamy Frosty and then to my mouth. I get a little Frosty dripping down my lip. Oopps! Towards the end of the song I hear a creaking. I turn around and there is the door opening slowly. I freeze. The bass of the song still permeating through my body. My Dave Thomas shirt soaks through with sweat. I see a hand. I see an arm, then a body. I know that apron from anywhere, it is Dave Thomas! But how could it be. Dave Thomas has passed on. I try to speak but the words won’t come out. I am tongue tied. I have cotton mouth. Producing words has never been this difficult before. I finally have a chance to thank this man for his contribution and I simply can’t express myself. He begins to scowl but not a word comes from his lips. He quickly removes his glasses from his face, throws them on the ground and almost instantaneously, he turns into a wolf. Suddenly I am cornered by a snarling, angry wolf. He backs me into a corner. I trip over my bean bag that was made to resemble a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger and the wolf jumps. I shield my face, I know it is the end.

    I sit up in bed, the sheets are soaked with sweat and I can feel my heart beating faster than ever before. I get up to check on my Dave Thomas room. All is fine. Out of the corner of my eye, I see a pair of glasses. Could it be? Was my nightmare really just a nightmare?

    I also like to dip the nuggets.

  39. Yesterday was my birthday and my co-workers bought me a Vanilla Frostee from Wendy’s… Nothing dipped in it though…

  40. $25??!!! Why, I think I *will* try all three new signature sides, thanks! (I’ve never had a Frostee. Winning this might fix that problem.)

  41. I’m pretty boring, just fries in my frosty. My roommate and I get a small frosty and split it because we only use it for dipping.

  42. I always ALWAYS dip my fries in my frosty! I wish they would bring back the vanilla flavor though….

  43. If I could dip anything into a wendys frosty, I’d dip all of the sadness in the world into it. That way I would eat sadness, and there would be no more sadness…I’d just be fat.

  44. They should make a frosty and fries Wendy’s brand ice cream you could buy at the store! I would love to win this GC!

  45. Not much of a dipper of the frosty, But I could sure go for a spicy chicken with BBQ sauce on it. Maybe some cheese and bacon also.

  46. I dunno about the Wendy’s Frosty but I love that chili and I was putting that leftover-mystery-meat based chili mess on fries way before Wendy’s decided it was cool enough to market. AND it’s way better without their cheese topping messing it up!lol

    Oh and I feel that Noodlez guy, I think bacon could improve the chili and fry thing.

  47. I’ve never dipped anything into a frosty, I do need to try that. However I’ve been eyeballing their Strawberry Shortcake dessert for some time now, need to get one!

  48. Fries, obviously, but if I had $25 I might be able to create some sort of Frosty face mask day spa situation. I could get into that.

  49. On several occasions, I’ve lifted off the tops of Wendys burgers and put some of the frosting on the burger as a condiment.

  50. Just fries, but this gift card would open up possibilities for further experimentation.

  51. I’d use the gift certificate to buy the crazy expensive fancy sandwiches that I refuse to pay real money for.

  52. Usually I just dip fries in Frostys, but both kinds of nuggets (spicy and regular) go really well, too.

    Fingers are good, so long as you don’t bite them. The same goes for spoons.

  53. I’d be willing to try dipping spicy chicken nuggets in a Wendy’s Frosty. I will always dip my fries in my frosty though, yum!

  54. I believe I’ve outgrown the days of dipping a fry in my Frosty. Now I just dip a spoon. Boring, I know.

  55. I’ve dipped both fries and nuggets into a Frosty. And of course my fingers. I was a creative kid…

  56. We don’t have a Wendy’s here. So I’ve actually never dipped anything into a Wendy’s frosty. D: Needless to say, I’d be sending this to my sister who actually lives near a Wendy’s.

  57. After a long day of sunning at the beach, I visit Wendy’s for a Large Fries and a Large Frosty. The salty-n-sweet combination simply hits the spot.

  58. Okay, normally when there is a prize drawing I don’t get excited because the places the gift cards are meant for a never anywhere close. However, there are actually several local Wendy’s! And I LOVE Wendy’s.

    I don’t always dip stuff in my frost, but when I do I apply a generous portion of fries to a spicy chicken sandwich, cut it in half, and dip it in a frosty. Fries alone are also good.

  59. Why dip anything in a Frosty? Don’t even bother with the spoon. Just stick your entire face in there.

  60. Although I usually enjoy them plain, I’ve found that graham crackers and pretzels are pretty good dipped in them.

  61. Wendy’s is definitely my favorite late-night fast food choice. I mean, is there anything more satisfying than fries & a frosty at midnight?

  62. Don’t really mess with the frosties I get. Just eat them with a spoon or straw…. But if I win this, I’ll dip some nuggets and/or my spicy chicken sandwich into my frosty.

  63. That’s the Wendy’s on Clifton Hill on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, sorta freaking me out seeing something I know on this site.

  64. I’ve just tried fries but I’d try the spicy chicken or even a burger in it.

  65. I once dipped a McDonald’s chocolate shake in a Frosty and WENT BACK IN TIME!!! Okay, I never did that but fries in a Frosty sure is tasty.

  66. back when wendys had a buffet bar, i was a kid and liked chocolate pudding in my frosty.

  67. Best thing to “dip” into a Frosty? Coffee. We used to make them all of the time when I worked there. half and half. Delicious.

  68. I think I’ve only dripped fries, but I should try something more elaborate.

    Look forward to trying their new-ish breakfast items at some point.

  69. I used to live on Oahu, and the Wendy’s in Wahiawa got me through many a bout of homesickness. I would love to try dipping fries into a Frosty, but I keep forgetting to do it. 🙂

  70. I want to try my first Wendy’s burger with this card. Also, would love to relive memories by buying a kid’s frosty, some sweet n spur nuggets, and then try their Mac n cheese

  71. I dipped my entire pinky in a Frosty before. I’ve also dipped fries into it. Delicious.

  72. I’ve never dipped another food item into a Frosty but I’m thinking oatmeal cookies would be a good combo for some reason.

  73. I’ve paired Frosties with fries and chicken nuggets. The former was, of course, delicious, but the latter was like a dishwater smoothie. Learn well from the mistakes of my younger, dumber self!

  74. Mmm Wendy’s. I don’t eat it nearly enough, and usually when I do stop in, I only get a Frosty. I’m a traditionalist, I think I’ve only ever dipped fries in my Frosties.

  75. french fries as best dunked into a frosty – that sweet and savory taste also a BIG spoonful of chocolate frosty into a cup of black coffee – oh so yummy………..

  76. I love dipping chicken nuggets in Wendy’s chocolate frosty….wait that sounds so damn perverted

  77. I thought everyone dips their fries in their Frosties. Nuggets aren’t too bad, either.

  78. Fries in a chocolate frosty are the only thing I have tried. However I knew someone who mashed a spoon of vanilla frosty into their side potato.

  79. I’d pair it with a warm cookie so that the Frosty melts and penetrates its crevices and creates a lovely goop.

    But before that, I’d gingerly dip my index finger into the chilled hunk of delight that is the Frosty. Then lick it.


  80. Mmm, Wendy’s… the fast food place I only go with a coupon! 🙂 Which means I will get the most bang for my $25 gift card buck if I win!

  81. I’ve truly never dipped anything more daring than a straw into a Frosty. I enjoy a good Frosty every once in a while, they reminds me of high school because that’s where we’d always eat after Scholastic Bowl events.

  82. remember that one time someone dipped their finger in a frosty and it fell off…

    mmmm love wendys

  83. I tried a french fry once in a frosty….gross, now only the spoon gets put into a frosty
