Wendy's Serves Summertime Cheer with Seasonal Tastes

DUBLIN, Ohio - May 26, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Wendy's® is brewing up unique flavor fusions this summer with three limited-time beverages, Blackberry Lemonade, Orange Mango FRUITEA CHILLERS™ and Blueberry Pineapple FRUITEA CHILLERS. Pair any of these with Wendy's fan-favorite Strawberry Fields Chicken Salad - back again this summer - for a true refreshing experience.

Wendy's is saying cheers to summer with three new three limited-time beverages, Blackberry Lemonade, Orange Mango FRUITEA CHILLERS and Blueberry Pineapple FRUITEA CHILLERS, to join the return of Wendy's seasonal Strawberry Fields Chicken Salad. The summer salad is made with fresh ingredients like ripe, sweet California strawberries, honey-roasted sunflower seeds and blue cheese crumbles, topped with freshly cooked Applewood Smoked bacon and a grilled chicken breast that is served warm.

"Consumers are looking for more fresh options and Wendy's built its foundation on bringing customers the quality, seasonal ingredients that differentiate us from others in the industry," said Liz Geraghty, Wendy's vice president of brand marketing. "With warmer months giving way to a new season of premium ingredients, we capture the essence of summer with fresh tastes in Wendy's seasonal salad and beverages to satisfy consumers' cravings."

Wendy's new line of beverages, including Blackberry Lemonade and FRUITEA CHILLERS, turn craveable ingredients into "sipable" refreshments:

Blackberry Lemonade – Blending real blackberry puree with our classic lemonade, Wendy's Blackberry Lemonade is the perfect combination of sweet and tangy.

FRUITEA CHILLERS – Offered in two unique flavor combinations, Wendy's new line of FRUITEA CHILLERS are made with real fruit juices and puree, and are hand-shaken with organic Honest® Tropical Green Tea.

  • Blueberry Pineapple – Made with real blueberry puree, pineapple juice and a splash of pomegranate juice.
  • Orange Mango – Made with real mango puree, orange juice and a splash of carrot juice.

A perfect summer companion with Wendy's new summer beverages is the Strawberry Fields Chicken Salad, which is only available during strawberry season. Wendy's Strawberry Fields Chicken Salad delivers the very best of summer with hand-sliced ripe, sweet California strawberries, crunchy, honey-roasted sunflower seeds and blue cheese crumbles, topped with freshly cooked Applewood Smoked Bacon and grilled chicken breast that is served warm.
