Sunday afternoon I took a chance on some of Wendy’s new menu options. Starting on November 15th, Wendy’s dropped four new items, a peppermint-flavored Frosty, an Italian Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich, and Italian Mozzarella Burger, along with Garlic Fries. 

I tried out the Frosty, Garlic Fries, and the Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich, and I have mixed feelings.

The first thing I tried out was the peppermint frosty, which I was a little skeptical about since I’m not a fan of peppermint flavored foods normally, but I was pleasantly surprised. The Frosty was delicious, and it was a great snack to put me in the Christmas mood. Overall I would rate it a 9/10, and I definitely recommend you try it.

Next up, I had the Italian Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich, which was a little underwhelming. When I took the sandwich out of the bag it smelled really good, so I was very excited to try it, but there was just something missing. The sandwich consisted of a garlic knot bun, a chicken patty, mozzarella stick patty, and marinara sauce. My main complaint is that the sandwich needed more sauce, because it was a little dry, but besides that the sandwich overall had a decent taste. I don’t think I would get it again, but it was fun to try. I would rate it a 5/10.

Last but not least I had the Garlic Fries. The fries were definitely the best item I ordered. I already love the Wendy’s fries as they are, but adding the garlic flavor really made the fries that much better. I will definitely be ordering these again, 10/10.

Overall I would rate my experience a 8/10. I will definitely be coming back for the fries and maybe the Frosty as well.  

You can check these new items out at a few Fayetteville Wendy’s locations, which include Grove Street, Skibo Road, Ramsey Street, and Owen Drive. When you’re near a Wendy’s make sure you stop by and try the new items!
