REVIEW: Wendy’s Frosty Cream Chilly Brew


My first thought upon taking a sip of Wendy’s new Frosty Cream Chilly Brew: why is that this so dang candy?

My second thought: am I really simply ingesting straight-up creamer?

My third thought: lots of people are going to say that is means too candy.

My fourth thought: however I’m not considered one of them, BRING IT ON!

Suffice it to say, this newest providing from my favourite red-headed quick meals mascot (sorry, Ronald McDonald) comes on robust. It additionally is available in three flavors; I selected vanilla (it felt like essentially the most impartial for a evaluation… and in addition occurs to be my favourite), however when you choose chocolate or caramel, these are additionally obtainable.

My knee-jerk comparability to espresso creamer is sensible, as this beverage consists of cold-brewed espresso with one thing that Wendy’s identifies as “Frosty creamer” (which, in line with its web site, is creamer that’s really made out of a Frosty), plus a syrup within the aforementioned taste of your alternative, served over ice.

For those who’re unfamiliar with chilly brew, it’s espresso made out of grounds steeped in chilly water for an prolonged time period. Along with being recognized for being extra caffeinated than repeatedly brewed espresso, chilly brew has a status for tasting significantly easy, and that’s positively a phrase that I might use to explain this drink. On prime of that wealthy, goes-down-easy style, the feel was noticeably thick and creamy, which made for an indulgent really feel. I drank mine late sufficient within the day that it was extra of a dessert than a pick-me-up, and that feels acceptable for one thing so decadent (though maybe not the perfect for my sleep schedule).

The one factor this espresso was lacking for me was, nicely, tasting like espresso. I’ve had chilly brew earlier than, and whereas it’s often on the mellow facet, I’ve nonetheless all the time been in a position to discover that attribute bitterness lurking beneath the floor. Right here, although, at the same time as somebody who usually can’t conceal the acrid taste even when it’s masked by beneficiant portions of milk and cream, I genuinely couldn’t detect any trace in any way.

I suspected that possibly my first few sips have been simply ridiculously candy as a result of I used to be getting all of the creamer without delay, and sure, the sweetness of my subsequent sips was positively much less intense (although positively nonetheless there)… however these sips nonetheless tasted extra like milk than espresso. Whereas remaining velvety in texture, additionally they appeared a bit of watered down flavor-wise. Actually, if I’d tried this drink previous the preliminary sips whereas blindfolded, I most likely would have guessed it was milk tea after the ice had began to soften.

As I’ve pressured a couple of instances by now, that pronounced sweetness was a constructive for me, however I’m conscious that many would discover it overpowering or simply not complicated sufficient (and I admit that I additionally want there was a tad extra to the flavour profile than “overly candy, then milky/watery”). So when you’re a espresso purist or simply cautious of a sugar rush, I’d advise sticking with simply common chilly brew or an everyday Frosty (or heck, each individually). But when, like me, each considered one of your tooth is a candy tooth, you’ll probably discover this mixture crave-worthy, even when considerably easy.
