Wendy's Frostys: gluten-free Again?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My kids (and I) used to love to get Frosty's at Wendy's... then we noticed they were off their gluten-free list (barley was added). Now, I noticed they are back on Wendy's gluten-free list (dated 11/2005).

Has anyone tried them recently? Does any one have any additional info?

Thanks,

Ruth

The small town that I drive through on my way to and from work has a McDonalds, Wendy's, and Subway. Guess I only have one option now, huh? That's ok - Wendy's has been my #1 choice when I do go for fast food now (very infrequent). However, when I was first diagnosed, I was used to eating fast food quite a bit, so I found Wendy's gluten-free menu and ate there a few times a week. At first, that was all I could figure out to eat. I would order their cheese baked potato and a small chili, and dump the chili on the potato - yum yum! Also, the chili, chips, and cheese, some salads, and the frosty is gluten-free (at least in my area anyway).

Of course as with any fast-food joint, or restaurant, you have to worry about cross-contamination.

HI Nini

how did you know they got 100% on their inspection? Did you ask or see a placque or certificate..?

My friend and i have a date for wendy's every 3 months and I've eaten there since being dx and and it's been ok. Last tues I got sooooo sick thought it might be the cc and did eat a 1/2 of tube of sour cream on b/potato and am trying NOT to eat milk products. I haven't been tested for specific allergies sooooo.

I guess we're back to the same old same old......who fixes it, how careful they are, I know the girl taking my order had not idea what i was talking about and even showed her the wendy's print out..she still didn't get it. guess I should have asked for the manager oh Nini it gets so dang hard doesn't it??? :blink:

My Mom used to live a couple of blocks from the wendy's corporate office in Ohio and we always knew they were to best and safest place to go :lol:

Let me know how you ck'd the inspection thing. I'd be interested in ck'n mine out but might have been the s cream.

enjoy your weekend.

actually a local news station does a weekly segment on restaurants that fail their inspections and they go in and confront them, at the end of each segment, they mention some of the restaurants that scored really well, and they specifically mentioned the Wendy's that I go to (address and everything) and said that they just recently scored a perfect 100 on their health inspection! When I went in, I looked for the Health inspection certificate on the wall (which is always supposed to be in clear view where customers can see it) and sure enough it was a perfect 100... They guy's name that does the segment is Adam Murphy and he also goes on a radio station's morning show to recap his segment! It's always an eye opener! Really scary to hear what some of the restaurants fail on... roaches in the kitchen, rat problems, food at wrong temperature, employees not washing hands after going to the bathroom and so on... really gross.

But yeah, I was pleasantly surprised to hear the Wendy's that I go to was rewarded for a good job!

Most newspapers in my expernce have at least a weekly section on it. I never read them. I used wiat tables and for a while was a short order cook. Nothing will help you loose faith in a system more then seening it in action. :)
