Popular the 1940s, Friendly’s Fribble, an extra-thick milkshake, is made from hard ice cream hand-crafted at Friendly’s creamery in Wilbraham, Massachusetts, and is available in up to sixteen premium flavors offered at Friendly’s restaurants throughout 14 states. Friendly’s tested the new medium Fribble at 12 locations in the Boston area earlier this year. The top three selling Fribble flavors are, in order, Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry.
