Sonic Launches 50 Shake and Slush Flavors for Summer

    Industry News | April 30, 2014

    Sonic Drive-In is bringing back its Summer of Shakes for another year and giving fans more reasons to embrace the season with 25 slush flavors. New slush flavors like Blue Raspberry made with Nerds and rainbow candies, Super Peach Ring, and Polynesian Punch will quench guests’ thirsts with a kaleidoscope of color. Other creations include Oreo Peanut Butter, Cookie Dough, and Chocolate Hazelnut Cream. As an added treat, shakes are half-price after 8 p.m. all summer long, and slushes are half-price during Sonic’s Happy Hour, every day 2–4 p.m. at participating locations.

    “The wide variety of flavors available during last year’s Summer of Shakes was a huge draw for our guests. We, of course, wanted to top our efforts this year by not only introducing new innovative shake options, but by bringing added creativity to our slush offerings, too,” says chef Claes Petersson, vice president of product innovation at Sonic. “Whether you want sweet, sour, salty, spicy, or something in between, the Summer of Shakes and Slush Headquarters gives 50 options to choose from to satiate any palate.”

    Sonic’s vanilla Real Ice Cream serves as the base for 25 shake flavors, including Chocolate Covered Jalapeño, Lemon Pie, and Oreo Caramel. Using ingredients like chocolate hazelnut, peanut butter, cheesecake, and even jalapeños, food adventurers can create any number of combinations this summer beyond the featured 25 flavors.

    Classic Slush flavors like Watermelon, Cherry, and Green Apple are still available for guests who love these familiar favorites. To take it up another notch, guests can add Sonic’s Real Ice Cream for a smooth Real Ice Cream Slush.
