Wendys Frostys

I have been reading different posts on here about Wendys frostys being gluten free.

I had a question for anyone who might have an answer. Has anyone had a negative reaction after having the frosty. My 5 yr old son and mother in law are both on gluten free diets for celiacs. Today, all of us(my wife, son, mother in law and I) had a frosty. My son and mother in law, within an hour, were both extremely sick. It has been almost 12 hours since they had the frosty, my son is a little better, still has a stomach ache, but my mother in law is still sick. We know it wasnt a bad batch because my wife and I are fine. We called my sons specialist and she said based on his symptoms, it was a reaction to gluten, but I thought they were supposed to be gluten free.

Any help on what to do would be greatly appreciated.

I thought they were supposed to be gluten-free, too. My reaction to gluten is so delayed (neurogenic vs. gut) that I'm not someone to run immediate reaction by. I'll ask my home health nurse. Her celiac is severe and her sensitivity is almost hair-trigger. She is constantly reading about gluten-free status of foods, and is a really valuable resource. She is coming on Monday. I'll get back with you then.

Lynne.....so happy to see you

no on here much anymore but had to say HI

About Wendy's ........I thought they were gluten-free also but i had to stop eating there as even the potato was cc. and after i year of successful eating at wendy's i had to stop.

Maybe someone can ck their web site and see what they are saying now. I havent' looked at it in over a year. I still think the cc there is the worst.

They've recently started adding things (cookies?) to some of their frosty's...maybe it's a cc thing now that other ingredients are in the mix...so to speak.

Thank you everyone for the replys. I did check their website. It still says that Frostys are gluten free. But I was wondering about the cc as well. Someone from the company is supposed to be contacting me about this today or tomorrow. When I hear more I will let everyone know,again thank you

CC is a major issue at Wendy's. I have watched at two locations while food is being prepared, and won't eat there. The buns are stored right next to the potatoes at these locations, the person who handles both does not change gloves in between, and got rather crabby about being asked to do so. As far as the frostys, now that they have all these new things with them, do each come out of seperate machines? If not, there is no way to prevent the cross contamination as they aren't going to take the time after each frosty to clean all the shared parts. I gave up on them shortly after being diagnosed. I have gotten sick every time.

I have no trouble with blizzards from my local Dairy Queen. I am very sensitive to cc so I'm surprised that I do not have to ask at DQ for them to wipe down the equipment an extra time or to wash their hands before making my blizzard.

I wish I could say this about all fast food places.

I react to Wendy's frosties because of my lactose intolerance--so I order the Junior frosty. Not only is it a very small portion that is cool and chocolatey, but it is also cheaper and doesn't aggravate the lactose intolerance. however, I would stear clear of the shakes--too much risk of contamination.

I have been Gluten Free for 2 weeks now and have never felt better! At the age of 46, being sick had become a wa of life, I feel like a new person. Last night I ate a Wendy's Frosty. Just like your wife and Mother in law, I became ill within an hour. It is now 10 plus hour later and I am still sick at my stomach. I have never been lactose int either. What the heck is in the frosty? I won't be eating anymore>
