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.

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.

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.

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.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: SandMann: I'll take a malt from Amy's over a frosty anytime

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."


Perhaps we can also use it as a way to find other local Farkers? When I mentioned Frank's Diner (Kenosha, WI) in a thread, I invariably get a few SE Wisconsinites reply to it.

mikefinch: I know every time i eat a milkshake i think "this would go great with fried potato!"

you all make me sick. If you want a think milkshake use more ice cream. Who freaking adds thickener to a milkshake they make at home?

Take a dixie cup of ice cream, put it in a mug, add milk to thin it to your likeing and mash with a spoon till it goes through a straw.

\Fries dipped in milkshake? Talk about taking two beautiful things and turning them into something horrible.
\\No wonder Americans are all obese monsters.

Right, because eating the fries and the shake separately cuts down the calories.

Don't try this at home.

Having purchased my first Wendy's stock in 1975 I would strongly advise everyone to buy Frostys from a licensed professional.

I'm no science geek, but wouldn't the bowl be frozen within say 6-8 hours or so?


It's not pure water inside, so it takes longer to freeze. That so it takes longer to thaw while making the actual ice cream inside. It's some sort of gel(ire) substance

Go to McDonalds and buy their fries. Wendy's is better than McDonald's in every way except the fries.

Snooki Punch: wildcardjack: I'm not a fan of owning specialized machines like ice cream makers. But a good blender goes a long way.

The only unitasker allowed in my tiny apartment kitchen is a fire extinguisher.

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.


If you want to take up even less space and already have a Kitchenaid mixer, you can always get the ice cream maker attachment for the mixer. It's just the bowl that you stick in the freezer and a paddle attachment for the mixer, so no extra appliance to find cabinet space for.

RoyBatty: 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.


You said agar twice.

I am a very slow learner. Or rather I learn things and then forget. Example: I went to Wendy's for lunch one day last week. I had the grilled chicken sandwich. My god it was revolting. Tough, overcooked, and slathered in some bizarre sauce that tasted horrible. And the bun was stale and had a weird taste to it.

I don't know how you can screw up a grilled chicken sandwich, but I walked out of there literally smacking myself upside the head. "You knew better, and you went anyway. Moron."

(The Frostys are always good though.)

Guar gum = fake ice cream. There is very little real in the chemical concoction commonly known as a Frosty. Today's Frosty is not what Dave Thomas invented. It's garbage.

It's not water it at all. It's some kind of magic food-safe antifreeze. I've been using these for years. It thaws to around the freezing temperature of water in around half an hour when in use. Its purpose is to transfer that cold to the mix while you're running the dasher, and that's how the ice cream is made. It thaws completely in about twice that long.

From my experience, you should freeze it no less than 24 hours, and preferably longer, in a conventional freezer. If you have a deep freezer, twelve hours should do, and it will also work more quickly and take a lot longer to thaw completely. When I was doing this regularly, I just kept it in my (conventional) freezer all the time.

As a glacier hobbyist, I have to concede, much as it pains me, that a Frosty is indeed ice cream. It's just soft-frozen, low-rent milk chocolate ice cream, with some extra stuff that serves Wendy's operational needs but drags it down. You can make a much better version of it yourself with less hassle and better ingredients. But yes, it is a kind of ice cream.
 
2012-09-03 11:01:53 PM  
Yeah, I could do all that... or, you know... just spend $0.99 and buy a damn frosty.

Works well enough for the less than 1 frosty per year I eat.

Fat people problems.
