I am a Wendy’s Frosty purist. Plus, a giveaway!

I’m a girl who likes her food.


I’m a girl who likes good food I don’t have to make.

I’m also a girl who likes good food I don’t have to make that’s easy on the non-existent teeny tiny budget.

And now I’m a girl who wishes the closest Wendy’s to my house wasn’t 20 minutes away (i.e. just enough time for my chili to go cold).

I was lucky to receive an invite from The Motherhood to go to Wendy’s with some other fabulous Orlando bloggers to try out their new Pick 2 option for just $4.99. As a girl who likes her food, I appreciate the foods at Wendy’s, because really, any place that makes an un-milkshake (see: Frosty) that you have to eat with a spoon, is alright in my book.

Brown-Haired Wendy (what? it's Orlando. you do the math.)

Brown-Haired Wendy (what? it's Orlando. you do the math.)

Before going out to my lunch, I did some research on what the options would be in the $4.99 Pick 2 menu because I’m professional and stuff. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t hoping for much, but I had heard from other bloggers who had already had their Wendy’s lunch, and they were saying that the salad portions were really generous despite looking small for an entree. My other gripe was (and still is) that they include a drink as one of the Pick 2 options. I don’t know about you, but I normally don’t drink my meal, and Mama needs her sustenance to get through the day.

Lucky for us, we were given a $7 gift card to purchase our meals. Lucky for Wendy’s, that $7 was put to good use on my $4.99 Pick 2 meal with a Baja Salad, baked potato, and a small unsweetened tea. We ate in the restaurant, so I knew I could get my fill of refills on the unsweet. I was also asked by the brown-haired Wendy’s imposter impersonator if I wanted the chili that comes on the salad to be on the side. *quick brain thinkage: if she puts it on the side, I’m sure I’ll get an extra scoop* Of course I obliged her request and asked for the chili on the side.

It may look like a mess, but it's a mess of YUM.

I have to tell you, Friendlies, that the salad was yummy. VERY yummy. ¡MUY DELICIOSO! And, it was tummy-filling. I’ve always loved the Wendy’s baked potato with sour cream and chives, so that was a no-brainer. But having the added scoops of chili (see: I’m a ninja) made for a lunch lasting me through to dinner.

My beautiful friend April was there! @MommyNamedApril

If you’re a Wendy Wendy’s lover, I suggest you take advantage of the Pick 2 menu, get the Baja Salad (without looking at its fat content), and roll out with a Frosty.

The Motherhood gave me a $7 gift card to give away to an extra special Friend here, so if you want to be the big winner, leave a comment letting me know if you’re a Frosty purist (chocolate) or a Frosty daredevil (vanilla). I’ll pick a random winner from the comments on Monday, October 25th at 9pm EST (if I can remember – feel free to remind me).


Congrats to the big winner, LeAnn! Check your email, lady.

Purist! Obviously. Also, the baked potatoes are genius and their chicken nuggets are nommy.


25 Momma Chaos October 23, 2010 at 5:03 pm

Although I’m in fear of you smacking me and not even considering my comment for the Wendy’s card, I’ll be the brave person and admit that I don’t care for Frostys.. There I said it.. Don’t hit me 🙁 If I were going to eat one (bleck) I’d totally go chocolate, but I prefer jamocha shakes instead.. lol.

However, I do still want to win (pick me, I was brave!) because I absolutely adore their sour cream & chive baked potatoes..
