Hi everyone! I've been trying to eat gluten-free for a while now to support my boyfriend, a Celiac. Only problem is, I work at a Wendy's. Haven't had a burger or fries or anything in a whole month, woo-hoo! But I desperately crave a Frosty. According to Wendy's.com, their Chocolate Frosty's are gluten-free, but I'm a bit concerned about things like dextrose and artificial flavors. Does anyone happen to know where they get their dextrose and such? Are they indeed gluten-free?

Also, if anyone happens to know how they modify the cornstarch for their Strawberry Yogurts, or where the Red 40 food coloring comes from, that'd be incredibly helpfull. That'd just make my month. n____n Thank you!

Dextrose is usually derived from corn. I had a Wendy's chocolate frosty the other day and didn't get glutened, so I believe it is gluten-free.

my kids have had the frostys at wendy's and they are gluten free - my daughter is very sensitive to gluten. Also the baked potatoe with broccoli and cheese sauce is gluten free as they use corn starch in the cheese sauce.

They're gluten-free. Believe me, if Wendy's had any doubt, they wouldn't say so (think lawsuits). Never heard of dextrose being made from wheat in the U.S.

Now Wendy's has new frosty drinks that sound good like Vanilla Bean Frosty, Chocolate Fudge Frosty, Strawberry Frosty, M&M Twisted Frosty, Vanilla Frosty The ingredients they list are ok Just that there are other frostys you would have to be careful with like cookie dough. I guess it all depends on how they are made if they are safe or not. I hope the are ok to have I miss Vanilla Bean drinks

Wendy's is venturing into the "blizzard" and "shakes" market. Their vanilla and chocolate frosty's straight out of the machine are OK. The others (shakes and twisted frosties) have the flavors/ingredients mixed in and they all use the same mixer (from what I witnessed at my last visit). You would need to ask them to clean the machine first.
