Say what you will, J. Crew catalog, I ain't in the mood for stretchy tights and a merino wool cardigan just yet. Summer's still hangin' around and Fry Girl needs to chill. Good thing the fast-food world has provided some new and limited-time frozen sweet treats for the tastin'.

Arby's Strawberry Banana Split Shake, Carl's Jr. Banana Chocolate Chip Hand-Scooped Ice Cream Shake, Sonic's Campfire Blast, Dairy Queen's Mini Blizzard -- can these beat-the-heat eatings provide cold comfort on a (still) hot day in Phoenix? Find out in this week's column.
