While actually trick-or-treating may not be possible this year, Sonic is introducing a new menu item that just might make up for that.
On Friday (September 25), Sonic introduced the Trick or Treat Blast to its menus nationwide. According to a press release, this new milkshake blends three Halloween favorites with Sonic’s Real Ice Cream into one frozen dessert. The Blasts are available as the Vanilla or Chocolate Trick or Treat Blast. Each blast includes M&M’S Minis, Snickers bar pieces and Oreo cookie pieces, as well as rich, chocolate syrup.
“The crunch of three different chocolate candy and cookie pieces combined with Sonic’s smooth and creamy,100% Real Ice Cream work in perfect harmony to create a craveable and irresistible dessert,” said Scott Uehlein, vice president of product innovation and development for Sonic. “By packing in bites of Halloween favorites in each spoonful, we’ve captured the thrill of digging into a trick or treat haul in one frozen treat, served Sonic style.”
If you're planning to face off against any vampires this Halloween, Sonic has a solution for that, too. The burger chain is also bringing back the Jr. Garlic Butter Bacon Burger this spooky season. For just $2.99, the burger starts with creamy garlic butter seared into a 100% pure beef patty and topped with melted American cheese, crispy bacon, mayo and grilled onions on a toasted bakery bun. A quarter-pound option is also available for $4.79.
