ZooTampa is home to a Wendy’s Frosty Cart

ZooTampa, one of the most delightful spots to spend the day in the entire city, just got even cooler (literally) because it is home to the first Wendy’s Frosty Cart. That’s right, the iconic dessert that this blogger uses to dip fries in now has a cart at the resplendent escape.

The baby blue dessert wagon is our childhood dream come true.

“Have you ever wanted to add Lucky Charms™ marshmallows or Oreo™ cookie pieces to your Wendy’s Frosty?” wrote ZooTampa officials on Facebook. “Well, now you can! Wendy’s first Frosty Cart is open for business at our Wallaroo Station. It features classic chocolate and vanilla Frosty treats, Frosty Fusions, and a Build Your Own Frosty Sundae option.”
