It's their Hand-mixed Holiday Cheer in the form of the brand new Chocolate Mint Holiday Shake (made with real ice cream ofcourse). They sent me a $20 gift to go try it out, and one lucky commenter can get themselves a $20 gift card as well (just make sure you leave your email address so I can find you).
Ok, now you didn't think I pack up the kids, the wife, the iTablets and headed all the way out to Sonic just for a milkshake did you? Ofcourse not. That shake was merely my dessert for the ride home. You see, when we go to Sonic, we go all out. I'm taking all my gift cards, texting my buddy to meet us, and we're making a Sunday night adventure out of this.
So what did we get? Well, I couldn't resist the chance to try the new Asiago Grilled Chicken sandwich. It was a fine sandwich, though I dig make a mess of myself. I guess I still haven't mastered the soft breads of Sonic Sandwiches. They wrap them in foil pouches, so they kind of self steam and soften up. No one else really does that around here. I also tried the onion rings. They were fresh, simple, and I wished I had remembered to ask for ketchup to dip them in.
Burger King ICEE but instead I got a very natural taste that was in desperate need of a bigger straw.
Mrs. Dubba actually went with a grilled cheese, tater tots and a tasty chocolate shake.
Now my buddy was the only one who noticed this:
Boost your Blast with caramel, chocolate or strawberries
So he did! Pretty sure the caramel went all the way through.
(I had no idea he was so adventurous!)
We say goodbye to our friends, hit the highway....
...and we're home! (sans one milkshake cup anyway)
Wait, should I mention the kid's meal toy before I go?
The big flashing sign out front says Farm Tots ARE HERE
I thought we were going to get some cuddly tots but technically this was our prize. It was unexpected, but in Sonic's defense, my young son did still get a big kick out of his cards and plays with them a few times a day, so he's still happy and that's what really matters.
Ok, thanks for reading the whole story. If you want to be entered to win the $20 gift card, simply enter a comment with your email below. Maybe tell us what you are hoping to get at Sonic... or for Christmas, or whatever, it's all good. I'll pick a winner over the weekend.
Tuesday Morning Update: Julien is our winner! Congratulations! Enjoy your gift card!
