French Fry Diary 211: Wendy's Frosty and Fries

Just a few days ago I got an email from Wendy's talking about the joy of dipping French Fries in Frostys. Now it's something I've talked about here before once or twice. Here's what the email had to say:

Valentine's Day is coming. What better excuse do you need to plan a date with Frosty & Fries? One's cold, creamy and chocolaty. The other - hot, crispy and bursting with real potato taste. Together, they're a match made only at Wendy's. Experience the sweet and salty union today for proof that not only do opposites attract - they're delicious.

Now that's all well and good, and had I gotten this email last year or any time before that, it would have been only too true. The problem is, the fact is… Wendy's new Natural Cut Fries with Sea Salt, the ones they are so proud of, are not conducive to dipping in Frostys. The Frosty is too thick and the Fry is too flimsy. The fries will either bend or break as shown in the pics to the right. It just won't work.

Don't get me wrong. I love the Frosty, and will continue to go to Wendy's for the Frosty, and the new fries are all right, but they just don't work. Again, I plead, please bring back the old fries.
