According to the company’s menu, Peppermint Frosty consists of Vanilla Frosty with peppermint syrup that consists of pure cane sugar. “Frosty is all dressed up for the holidays and bringing some cool peppermint flavor to the party—because warm and cozy is overrated,” the description reads

The Peppermint Frosty is a limited-time menu item. It will be available throughout the 2023 holiday season as an amazing winter treat. However, to focus on the Peppermint Frosty, Wendy’s Vanilla Frosty will be temporarily unavailable. 

Wendy’s Introduces New Peppermint Frosty Cream Cold Brew

John Li, Global VP of Culinary Innovation at the Wendy’s Company, introduces a new menu item to go with the Peppermint Frosty.

“With the holidays around the corner, it’s the perfect time to introduce the all-new Peppermint Frosty Cream Cold Brew together with the return of Wendy’s beloved Peppermint Frosty,” Li shared. “Our fans consistently crave new, innovative Frosty flavors, so we embraced the flavor of the season with not one, but two sweet treats to savor throughout the holidays.”

The fast food company further revealed that the Peppermint Frosty Cream Cold Brew features peppermint syrup swirled in smooth cold-brewed coffee with classic Frosty creamer over ice. The limited-time menu item joins the company’s other year-round chocolate, vanilla, and caramel flavors.
