Sonic Drive-In unveiled a new lineup of spicy menu items that seek to meet the growing consumer demand for fiery foods. The new lineup includes the Classic Spicy Chicken Sandwich, Island Fire Spicy Chicken Sandwich, Island Fire SuperSonic Cheeseburger, and Southwest Chipotle Breakfast Burrito.

“With these new spicy menu items we really want our customers to experience the addictive thrill of spice,” says chef Claes Petersson, vice president of product innovation at Sonic. “We’ve created the perfect combination of spice and flavor that will have our customer’s taste buds tingling as each bite brings a flavorful thrill.”

The Classic Spicy Chicken Sandwich is a kicked-up classic, featuring 100-percent white meat crispy chicken breast filet seasoned with a spicy cayenne pepper blend, lettuce, sliced tomato, and mayo atop a toasted ciabatta bun. The Island Fire Spicy Chicken Sandwich includes a sweet and spicy habanero sauce on top of a spicy chicken breast filet.

For burger lovers, the Island Fire SuperSonic Cheeseburger is made with 100-percent beef patties, featuring Cheddar and Pepper Jack cheeses, bacon, lettuce, sliced tomato, and a sweet and spicy habanero sauce on a toasted bakery bun.

To satisfy cravings for spicy at all times of the day, Sonic is also introducing the new Southwest Chipotle Breakfast Burrito with smoked chipotle sauce and fire-roasted red and green peppers to help bring a little more spice to breakfast time.

Along with the entire Sonic menu, the new spicy menu items are available all day, but only for a limited time.
