    "At Sonic, we continually create new flavor combinations for our chicken lineup that guests will love on-the-go" says Todd Smith, chief marketing officer. “Our culinary team shook things up on our menu by adding the new Seasoned Jumbo Popcorn Chicken to build off a menu item our guests crave. These bites of juicy chicken have all the flavor packed into the seasoning, so guests don’t need dipping sauce, forks, or napkins.”

    Inspired by the popular fiery red sauce, Sonic’s Sriracha seasoning is made from ground red peppers that add a kick in every bite. Always a crowd pleaser, the Garlic Parmesan seasoning is made with Parmesan cheese, roasted garlic and Italian herbs. The Honey Barbeque seasoning is made with real brown sugar and honey to bring barbeque lovers the perfect balance of sweet and savory.
