REVIEW: Wendy’s Frosty Cookie Sundae

Wendy s Frosty Cookie Sundae

What is Wendy’s Frosty Cookie Sundae?

Back in the day (Read: The first two or three years of the decade) Wendy’s toyed with numerous Frosty variations, including waffle cones, shakes, and parfaits.

But, after the past few years of relegating the Frosty to a value menu afterthought and French fry delivery system, the chain is giving it a decadent dessert spin by adding chocolate chunk cookie bites and Ghirardelli Chocolate Sauce. It’s available in vanilla and chocolate for a cool two bucks.

How is it?

It’s amazing, which is saying something given that it’s “just” a Frosty with the addition of cookie pieces and chocolate sauce. The thing is, this is a chocolate chip cookie lover’s kind of sundae, complete with thick, chewy, chocolate-chunk loaded cookies pieces that taste like they’ve been broken off a fresh cookie (even though they’re not).

Slathered in the Ghirardelli Chocolate Sauce, each bite has both richness and sophistication, giving the familiar sweet cocoa taste of the Frosty an indulgent appeal. As far as deconstructed cookie sandwiches go, this is at the top of the list (oh, and there most definitely is a list).

Is there anything else you need to know?

Plan your bites carefully, making sure to dig below individual cookie pieces to envelop a healthy dose of Frosty with each spoonful. Make no mistake: The moist, buttery, cookie pieces and rich chocolate syrup are the main attractions here and eating them too quickly or on their own will leave you slightly disappointed as you slurp the remaining Frosty.

Also, slight bummer that the sundae can’t be ordered with the double chocolate chunk cookie.


For a chain that’s put much of its recent effort into revamping its premium sandwiches, Wendy’s has created a surprisingly good dessert item that can definitely stand on its own.

  1. I heard you can change your cookie selection. But maybe that is up to each individual Wendy’s restaurant or whoever is making your sundae. I also read a negative review that stated the cookie was stale. Again, individual experiences may vary due to freshness of cookie at each location.

  2. This is really good. The syrup doesn’t taste like like chocolate syrup. It tastes like melted chocolate. The cookie I had was good and soft.

  3. Your’s looks amazing. I purchased one with the chocolate frosty and they were really skimpy with the cookie and chocolate sauce.

    1. Skimpy with the cookie?..I thought they all just had one whole cookie broken into the mix but maybe they just started off with a small cookie when making yours?

  4. Did you get yours with vanilla? I always get a chocolate Frosty, but I think vanilla would be a better choice with this sundae, as it would break up the chocolate overload.

  5. I was just wondering if you tried (or could in the future and then let us know!) both vanilla and chocolate frosty options. I’m not sure which to choose.

  6. You got lucky here… My frosty was soup, the cookie was so stale it was hard to chew, the chocolate syrup was basically non-existant…. It all depends on who makes it but I sure wish the person that made yours made mine.

    1. Mine was cookie soup as well! The flavor was still good even though I had to drink most of it. I think the shallow dish it came in is a flawed design. Plus they made it first and had it sitting on the counter while waiting for the rest of my oder to cook.

    2. I could have drank mine too! Took it back and demanded a regular frosty!

  7. I had to pay 2,39 for mine. I would say 1.99 is possibly a fair price for this item although it is 50 cent Frosty time.

  8. I got one today. It was not heaping and tantalizing like yours. It looked like a cup of frosty with a broken crumbly cookie and a drizzle of Hershey’s syrup. When I tasted it, the cookie was dry and stale, like it had been forgotten at the bottom of a bag someone opened last week. This had the potential to be euphoric — had the cookie been fresh, warm, chewy, and melty. But it was SO underwhelming. I’m glad you got a good one!

  9. Ours sold for $1.99, and it was delicious. Not ashamed to admit I got two. Surprised me with the price, size, and appearance/taste of the dessert overall. This will be popular for the summertime!

  10. It sounded great, and the picture looked wonderful, but it was a joke. There were 3 1/2 small pieces of cookie in the middle of the sundae. Very disappointing
