- Raspberry Fizzle– Wendy’s vanilla dream ice cream and Schweppes Raspberry Red.
- Redback Bite – Wendy’s wicked chocolate ice cream and Schweppes Raspberry Red.

What could be more refreshing – a scoop of Wendy’s ice cream combined with a cold Schweppes soft drink.
Spiders, or ice cream sodas as they’re called in the US, have been around since way back in the 1870s and they are still around because they are simply so good!
“Spiders are a classic that have been enjoyed for generations, but if you haven’t had one yet then now is the time because you’re in for a special treat,” said Astrid Dare, Menu Manager.
Customers will also be able to enjoy a refreshing Spider as part of a special summer meal deal with a famous Wendy’s hot dog and a serve of delicious hot chips.

This month, Australian treat icon Wendy’s Milk Bar is celebrating 37 years in business – and we want to hand out the presents!
With more than 125 stores across Australia, the brand has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1979 to become a national favourite.
Wendy’s Milk Bar CEO, Karin Hattingh, said it has been a very busy past couple of years for the company and is pleased to see that the brand is staying true to its founding principles.
“While the look of Wendy’s Milk Bar stores today differs from the look of the very first store 37 years ago, the company continues to be driven by one simple philosophy – give customers what they want and make it fun,” Ms Hattingh said.
“This philosophy has played a key part in the brand’s ongoing success and will continue to do so as we look forward to a bright and promising future for the brand.”
Throughout its history, Wendy’s Milk Bar has developed and introduced many products to provide customers with increased choice.
“We have some exciting plans ahead, including fresh new branding, so it is a great time to be part of one of the nation’s most recognised and well-loved franchises.” Ms Hattingh said.
To celebrate their 37th birthday on July 31, Wendy’s Milk Bar will be offering customers the chance to win one of 37 free 500ml tubs of ice-cream, just for answering (in 25 words or less) the question “who the top 5 people you would like to share your ice cream with and why?” The competition will be run through the Wendy’s Facebook site on Sunday 31 July and closes 5pm Monday 1 August so be quick to enter.
Wendy’s began in a suburban shopping centre in Adelaide in 1979, when entrepreneurs Geoff Davis and Phil Rogers opened the doors to their unique treat business with a focus on hot dogs, quality ice-cream and fun.
The business has become an Australian icon, with more than 125 stores nationwide. The award-winning franchise has grown from hot dogs and ice-cream to now offer an expanded range including quality coffee, hot chips, churros, specialty cakes and a breakfast menu.

BACK IN BUSINESS: Wendy’s Milk Bar reopening at Shopping Centre.
Ice Cream lovers rejoice.
A sweet shop has opened its doors in Hinkler Central today with tasty options that are sure to tantalise your taste buds.
Wendy’s Milk Bar owner Kylie Hohn said the shop featured top desert picks such as ice cream, churros and milkshakes as well as savory sensations like hot dogs and hot chips.
“Our Shake n Dog is definitely very popular, as well as our hot chips” she said.
Ms Hohn, who has owned Wendy’s in Sugarland for the past six years, said the shop was also a feature in Hinkler before the floods.
“We were in Hinkler prior to the floods for about 18 months.” She said., “We decided to reopen now because it is the right time and we thought that it was needed in the shopping centre. There isn’t anything like it.”
Ms Hohn said a new addition to the brand was coffee and hot chocolate plus more seating available for customers.
“It’s great for anyone who needs to sit down and have a coffee break.” She said.
Ms Hohn has employed 11 local people to the store, in addition to the 10 local employees at the Sugarland milk bar.
She said people could expect great customer service and a perfect place to sit, relax and enjoy a special treat with the family.

Ice cream fans across Australia have been screaming for ice cream in the last couple of months – thanks to our #wendysISCREAMforICECREAM selfie promotion that gave away free ice cream every month for 3 months.To enter the monthly “Iscreamforicecream” promotion, fans posted selfies on social media, highlighting when and where they like to celebrate with a Wendy’s Milk Bar treat.
Our May winner, who posted a selfie on to the Wendy’s Milk Bar Facebook page, was Alice Greaves, from Broome, WA.
In an ironic twist, Alice’s first job was at the Wendy’s Milk Bar store in Broome.
“I worked there for a couple of years before school commitments took over. Andrew Aitken is still the current owner and he definitely passed down his strong work ethic to me as a young girl,” she said.
Alice’s selfie was taken next to the store with her twin two-year-old sons Jack and Lachlan.
“We were all eating the Club Tropicana sorbet. With my free Icecream coupons I will most likely eat the Honeycomb, Strawberry, Raspberry & White choc, Rocky Road and the Club Tropicana sorbet, and I’m pretty sure the boys will more than help out,” she said.Our June winner was Sueanne Edwards from Darwin, NT, who posted a photo of her daughter Sharna, 8, and friend Grace, 11, enjoying a MegaChocShake at their favourite Wendy’s Milk Bar store in the Casuarina Shopping Centre.
“We are definitely regulars at Wendy’s Milk Bar – a treat when we’ve finished shopping or sometimes before,” Sueanne said.
“I know Sharna’s favourite is Wicked Chocolate and Grace is a mango fan so hers would be Mango-A-Go-Go, so I am sure the girls will love to share in the months’ worth of free ice cream.”
