This season, Sonic Drive-In will help guests get in the holiday spirit with two new minty treats: the Vanilla Holiday Mint Shake and Chocolate Holiday Mint Molten Cake Sundae. Made with Sonic’s Real Ice Cream, these two seasonal desserts—along with the return of the Chocolate Holiday Mint Shake from 2012—offer customers a spirited way to experience the sweetness they have come to expect from the drive-in during busy holiday times.
“We are known for our great desserts, and the holiday season presents an opportunity to do something fun with the nostalgic flavor of mint,” says chef Claes Petersson, vice president of product innovation of Sonic Corp. “Once we layer in sweet vanilla and crunchy mint to our creamy and rich Real Ice Cream, the flavor profile is distinctly holiday and undoubtedly Sonic.”
The Vanilla Holiday Mint Shake takes Sonic’s hand-mixed Real Ice Cream Vanilla Shake and adds crushed holiday mints, topped with whipped topping, more crushed mints, and a cherry. The Chocolate Holiday Mint Shake is also back by popular demand.
For customers who crave something to warm them up, the Chocolate Holiday Mint Molten Cake Sundae starts with Sonic’s molten chocolate cake, filled with hot fudge and covered with Real Ice Cream, more hot fudge, crushed holiday mints, whipped topping, and a cherry.
