How do you make the fries that go with it...
 
2012-09-02 08:26:07 PM  
That's a lot of work to put into getting fatter.

If you're wondering why your guar gum prices have been going through the roof, it's because it's being used in hydraulic fracking.

Industrial applications
Textile industry - sizing, finishing and printing
Paper industry - improved sheet formation, folding and denser surface for printing
Explosives industry - as waterproofing agent mixed with ammonium nitrate, nitroglycerin etc.
Pharmaceutical industry - as binder or as disintegrator in tablets; main ingredient in some bulk-forming laxatives
Cosmetics and toiletries industries - thickener in toothpastes, conditioner in shampoos (usually in a chemically modified version)
Oil and gas drilling, hydraulic fracturing[11]
Mining
Hydroseeding - formation of seed-bearing "guar tack"[12]
Medical institutions, especially nursing homes - used to thicken liquids and foods for patients with dysphagia
Fire retardant industry - as a thickener in Phos-Chek

Once you reach a certain point it's difficult to pry yourself off the couch and get to Wendy's. This breaks the Gordian Knot.

This is one reason I substitute in xanthum gum for the guar gum in my recipes:

Xanthan gum is a polysaccharide, derived from the bacterial coat of Xanthomonas campestris, used as a food additive and rheology modifier,[2] commonly used as a food thickening agent (in salad dressings, for example) and a stabilizer (in cosmetic products, for example, to prevent ingredients from separating)

In the oil industry, xanthan gum is used in large quantities, usually to thicken drilling mud. These fluids serve to carry the solids cut by the drilling bit back to the surface. Xanthan gum provides great "low end" rheology. When the circulation stops, the solids still remain suspended in the drilling fluid. The widespread use of horizontal drilling and the demand for good control of drilled solids has led to its expanded use. It has also been added to concrete poured underwater, to increase its viscosity and prevent washout.

Regardless, xanthum gum prices have been relatively stable and should help you make a fine Wendy's Frosty.

Evaluation of workers exposed to xanthan gum dust found evidence of a link to respiratory symptoms.[7]

On May 20, 2011 the FDA issued a press release about SimplyThick, a food-thickening additive containing xanthan gum as the active ingredient, warning "parents, caregivers and health care providers not to feed SimplyThick, a thickening product, to premature infants."[8] The concern is that the product may cause necrotizing enterocolitis (i.e., NEC). As of July 10, 2012 the FDA has not established the causal link between SimplyThick and NEC.

An allergic response may be triggered in people sensitive to the growth medium, usually corn, soy, or wheat.[3][9] For example, residual wheat gluten has been detected on xanthan gum made using wheat.[9] This may trigger a response in people highly sensitive to gluten. Some consider this to be a separate allergy to xanthan gum with similar symptoms to gluten allergy. Xanthan gum is a "highly efficient laxative", according to a study that fed 15g/day for 10 days to 18 normal volunteers.[10] Some people react to much smaller amounts of xanthan gum, with symptoms of intestinal bloating and diarrhea.[3]There are many substitutes for xanthan gum when used for baking such as guar gum, locust bean gum and agar agar.

This. Frosty recipe is worthless without their french fries to scoop it with.

Is this their answer to the White House homebrew recipe?

So is Wendy's suing Fox for intellectual property theft?
 
2012-09-02 10:47:20 PM  
Meh, I'd rather get a shake from Shake'n'Steak or a Dairy Queen Blizzard. However, it is true that Frosties have the exact right consistency for fry dipping.
 
2012-09-02 10:49:12 PM  
Its not like they want to sell them anyway. Every time I have had the hankering for a Frosty their machine is always off or "broken". Granted its only a few times a year I try and get one, but still.
 
2012-09-02 10:49:55 PM  
Wow this is the first I'd heard of dipping fries in there... I know where I'm going tomorrow.
 
2012-09-02 10:49:58 PM  
Isn't this a bit like making a McDonald's cheeseburger at home? It's like, I guess you could, but making the real thing would be 1) easier and 2) about 10x better.
 
2012-09-02 10:50:46 PM  
I doubt this will work as well at home, my blender can't spin nearly as well as Fox News can.
 
2012-09-02 10:51:03 PM  
Lotta work to make crap. Just make ice cream, set it out for a few minutes, blend it and there you are.

I love it when people mention local restaurants as though anyone else on the internet has a farking clue what they're talking about.

I bet they're the same people who bring up people you don't know in conversation, "So yeah, I was out of work for a week because Sally died." "Oh.. Sally.. did she work here, or.." "No, that's my sister-in-law." "Oh... well I don't know the names of your sister-in-law, why didn't you just say 'my sister-in-law died'.. you know what, forget it."

2012-09-02 11:14:02 PM  
If you're in the southeast or eastern seaboard states, Harris Teeter has a store brand ice cream label called "Hunter Farms" that sells a "Southern Milk Chocolate" ice cream. That shiat, I kid you not, tastes EXACTLY like a Frosty. Let it sit in your bowl for a lil while and melt a touch and mix it up with your spoon and you've got a frosty. Its dank.

I also subscribe to Alton Brown's "no unitaskers except the fire extinguisher" theory. But, last summer, my mom was kind enough to buy me a Cuisinart 1.5 quart ice cream maker. I think it was about $30. I was skeptical, but I love thething now. If you're a dessert freak like I am, consider getting one - it's not a lot of money and you'll have fun with it. Homemade ice cream invariably impresses people.
