1. Coffee Toffee Twisted Frosty

Prior to doing some research here, I had never even heard of this. Being a coffee (and toffee) lover myself, I’m kind of sad that this frosty flavor no longer exists. It first got released back in 2009, with boy band based commercials, but just like any other fast food menu item, and boy bands too for that matter, it was retired just two short years later back in the Summer of 2011. How devastating (for both)!

If you’re looking for some sort of alternative that still exists in this world, try a Jamocha Shake from Arby’s! It’s got the perfect amount of balance between two tastes that are just absolutely unbeatable: coffee AND chocolate! What’s better than that? Not much, let me tell ya!

2. Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger

This is definitely a menu item that I feel is so darn simple that I don’t understand why they took it away in the first place. I never really heard much about this Pretzel Bacon Burger at Wendy’s. Was it not popular with guests?

If you’re curious to try it and looking for the same type of concept, Burger King has a great Pretzel and Bacon Burger that is so mouth-watering, you will probably forget that Wendy’s ever had it (even though I never got the chance to try it for myself from Wendy’s).

I mean, come on, what is possibly better than bacon on a cheeseburger all brought together with a salty pretzel bun? I’ll wait…
